Thank you for visiting Trinity Retrievers.  We are thrilled to show you our furry family and share some of the many blessings we have received over the past twenty-nine years.

Our home is located in the beautiful countryside, just outside of Knoxville Tennessee. We have been hobby show breeders for the past 29 years, with a dedication and passion for preserving the wonderful English Type and versatility that is the hallmark of a Retriever. Our Labradors and Goldens are our love and our hobby, we compete primarily in AKC conformation events, however our Retrievers have gone on to become drug detection dogs, service dogs, obedience dogs and hunting companions. 

We are proud to have bred Retrievers that can do it all!

We feel there is an art to producing a special litter. Every breeding is planned with a goal and purpose. Our litters are thought through with the research of pedigrees as we choose a stud dogs who will best compliment our girls. We strive to produce healthy retrievers that are expressive and intelligent. We also want our dogs to be strong retrievers with the beauty of correct conformation. Most of all we want our retrievers to portray the sweet loving temperaments that they are well known for.
