Lots of great thngs happened at the end od 2013. We have 2 new champions; CH Xanadu Afternoon Delight (Coco) and her Daughter, CH Southern Comfort (Dixie). Mom finished hers in Conroe (Coco) and Dixie finished a week later in Dallas.

The next week 12/11/13 we bred Sadie to Rooster, Freya to Henry and our golden Gypsy to Dante. These breedings did not turn out as expected. Gypsy, my golden, had to be spayed because of an infection. Sadie turned out to have no pups (after she was confirmed pregnant by a local vet with an awful ultrasound) and Freya, that had a beautiful 10 pup litter 2 years ago, had 7, but only one survived; a female.

Between March and June we expect to breed at least 3 to 4 litters. All females are proven, have their clearances, and great dispositions. For those waiting for the February litters, these will definitely be exceptional breedings. Breedings will be posted as they occur. If you can wait, you won’t be sorry.

 Now is the time to send in your deposits for the chessies. We will also be breeding “Winnie”,Gypsy’s daughter. These will be wonderfulful goldens. The list has already started for the spring/summer breedings. Please send an email via the link on this site,, giving your name, address and phone number; what you want, either a chessie or golden, the color and the sex, so you can get on the list. The $300 deposit, with no time limit, should be made out to Candy Van Duzer, 23617 Sanders Cemetery Rd., Magnolia, TX 77355.


Welcome to Xanadu Kennels, breeders of champion Chesapeake Bay Retrievers and Golden Retrievers


We are proud to announce that we have been accepted into the AKC’s “Breeder of Merit” Program. Xanadu kennels has bred more than 20 conformation champions since 1996 and has more conformation champions, Chessies that is, than any other breeder in Texas, maybe even in the South (I’ll have to check on that) and has more on the road to their championships. I always say we don’t breed ugly dogs; take a look, I think you’ll agree.

Xanadu Kennels, an AKC Breeder of Merit, produces Chesapeake Bay and Golden Retrievers of the highest quality for use as both companion and show dogs. We offer both puppies and established champions for sale throughout the year (all with the proper clearances), as well as stud and breeding services (including artificial insemination, whelping and raising litters), training, boarding, and inoculations. Our facilities include large indoor/outdoor dog runs, a large “beach access” pool, and plenty of space for the dogs to run around.

We have 30 years experience with sporting dogs and working dogs, so look around the site and let us know if we can help you find the perfect dog today.
