Hi Nancy!!!! Just a little update on Oakey and Olivia ❤️ I don’t know if my heart could be any fuller!!! They are two peas in a pod! They are both growing and learning together and they really are made for each other! I am glad that he chose us when we came to visit!!! Right now I am enjoying a lazy morning after Olivia took him on his morning walk, finished some training with him and is now giving him his weekly brushing!! Next she will brush his teeth!! I really couldn’t be happier and I truly feel he was meant for our family!!! We just love him and we are so happy to have him in our lives!

Thank you for being such an amazing breeder and breeding such amazing dogs!! Thank you thank you 🙏🏻 😍

A year ago when our family decided to get a puppy from @whisperingwillow_goldens

I had this vision of a dog that could be included in my Montessori preschool class. A dog that would be a quiet and calm presence, a four legged pal that children could gain comfort from, bond with and help take care of. An animal that would be like a piece of Montessori work-there and available if a child was interested. With the arrival of the pandemic I worried about how to socialize our pup so she would be accepting of children, patient and tolerant. Nancy was so helpful and reassuring, she picked out the calmest puppy for us. Our pup is / has been an absolute joy. She is easy to train, we get endless compliments on how beautiful she is and how remarkably calm she is.

She is a the perfect family pet and a wonderful classroom companion for my students.


We are so happy with our new addition (Daisy) to the family.

Nancy at Whispering Willow Goldens is nothing but the best.

She helped us with many tips, super professional and

still keeps in touch with us after many months.

Strongly recommended!

Having never owned a dog before, it was a big step for our family to finally bring a four-legged friend into our world! After looking through various breeders throughout the entire region, I was immediately taken by Nancy’s kind disposition and willingness to answer my (four hundred) questions! She supported us through the entire process–from the moment we first filled out our questionnaire to the moment we picked up our beautiful pup–and we continue to stay in touch with her as the months pass. Aside from our wonderful experience with Nancy herself, our beloved Brody, is the absolute dog we ever could have hoped for. He’s gentle and playful and has been extremely easy to train. I cannot recommend one of Nancy’s dogs enough! Grateful to her for helping us complete our family! xo

In August of 2019 my wife researched English Creme Golden Retrievers and came upon Whispering Willows Goldens. It has been nothing but enjoyable from our first visit, putting a deposit down to choosing our newest family member. Nancy has always been there to answer any questions, offer any assistance if required. She is so caring and knowledgeable we could not be happier. We have had almost daily updates on the puppies once they were born. I would have no hesitation to recommend Whispering Willows Goldens to anyone looking for a Golden Retriever. Thank you Nancy for your patience your diligence in looking after all the puppies and mommy. It has been and will continue to be a pleasure interacting with you. ~Chris & Jean


I wish that I could add extra stars to this review as 5 stars is not enough. Nancy Sabiston at Whispering Willow Goldens has been a delight to work with. Her vast knowledge of the breed and professionalism has been exemplary. She has gone above and beyond to help calm me down, as I purchased one of her puppies online. As I was not able to travel to Ottawa to visit her kennel, due to personal reasons, Nancy reassured me by posting daily pictures and videos of her litter. She helped guide me to choose the perfect companion for our family, based on our activity level. I can truly say that Nancy started out as a stranger, but has ended up as a friend. Our family are smitten with our new big ball of fluff. Yogi is a delight and extremely smart. In two days, he has mastered the stairs, whines at the door to be let out for his potty business and plays fetch. I would definitely purchase another puppy from her in the future. ~Lise L’Heureux


  “Thank you so much Nancy! We had such a great experience throughout the whole process!

She gave us tons of updates and pictures during the pregnancy, birth & leading up to bringing Tessa home. Going to meet her and Willow prior to bringing Tessa home was humbling and we knew we picked the right breeder (and dog mom) for us. Tessa is a smart, beautiful, perfect family dog that is a great addition. She is patient and loves playing with our two small kids. Thank you again for helping us through this journey Nancy. We appreciate everything!”



We have always had Goldens in our home from puppies until their demise. Nancy was a joy to work with  during our process of obtaining  a new puppy. She came to us when our pick of a puppy through another breeder fell through. Nancy kept us in the loop during the pregnancy and with updates on the puppies until it was time to bring ours home.
Molson is currently 7months old and 60 pounds, who is in great health, has a wonderful temperament, has been easy to train and very very smart. This is a reflection of the breeder and the litter. 
We are so grateful having Molson come into our family. 
Molson is best friends with our cat Pearl and he has a couple of doggie friends in the neighborhood whom he socializes with nicely.
Both my husband and I highly recommend Whispering Willow Goldens. 
Best regards, Ray and Susan 

Since the first day I had Leia, everyone who meets her keep complimenting on how well behaved she is for a puppy. Since I got an older puppy, I’ve missed her socialization period and I know you put a lot of work in socializing her properly and putting a foundation for good manners. I can see that you put a lot of care, love and time into puppies. As a first time dog owner I am very satisfied with the breeder I chose, as well as the puppy who has wonderful character and gorgeous look.



Please find enclosed the most recent picture of Luna that I took today.
She is more than 6 month old now and she is growing to be very beautiful and affectionate dog!
No health problems. Thank you!

 Hey Nancy! I just had to give you the latest “good news” story on Willa. Yesterday I brought Willa to work with me at a Continuing Care facility for seniors. We have folks ranging in care from fairly independent to full on Alzheimer’s. Willa was amazing! She recognized the individual needs of the 15 different residents. She sat quietly while our dementia and Alzheimer’s residents pet her. She walked a couple folks to the door and back to their room when they went out for a cigarette. She played fetch with an 85 year old.

This dog continues to amaze me. Thank you again to you, Willow and Jazz



We honestly can’t say enough about our experience with Nancy and her wonderful dogs.  We welcomed Memphis into our family in June and have been just over the moon in love with our boy.  He’s been the perfect addition to our family!  He is a big boy at just 6 months old who’s favourite thing in the world is hugs.  No one in our family can hug without him running over and getting in the middle, tail wagging and giving out kisses.  He has been a breeze to train and gets along with everyone and every animal he’s come across.  We are constantly told by friends that he is just the best dog!  Something we very much know to be the truth 🙂


-Brothers Ollie & Charlie having a play date in Ottawa-



Happy at 1 year old, he looks great! 

I see he loves the Frisbee as much as his parents do!


Attached are some recent pictures of Tyson.He instantly became part of our family

and helped us discover a type of love we never experienced before.

Best regards, Vlad, Dessi, Val, Sofie and Tyson


Just wanted to send you a photo of Ramsay at 15 weeks he is tipping the scale at 35 lbs! He has been such a great dog from day 1, we couldn’t be happier with our fur-baby.Thank-you so much for the time and care you put into these dogs before they go to their forever homes, I feel it makes a tremendous difference in their overall happiness and well being.We couldn’t ask for a better dog,

He is our little Ray of Golden Sunshine!
