Welcome to Thunderstruck Retrievers located in West Central Minnesota

Specializing in Competitive and Hunting Retrievers

Thunderstruck Retrievers is located near Alexandria, Minnesota on 40 acres of training ponds and cover. We specialize in raising, competing, and breeding Golden Retrievers who are multi-purpose: strong field trial and hunt test competitors with friendly, loving attitudes that can serve as hunting companions and pets. We compete in both AKC field trials and hunts tests and are members of the Golden Retriever Club of America, West Central Minnesota Retriever Club, and Central Minnesota Retriever Club.

If you are eager to have a working dog that also will be a great companion in your home, please contact us. We breed for the competitive homes that will give our puppies a job to do as they grow, but our litters will also be appropriate for hunting companions and as pets. Our goal is to send puppies to your homes that are well socialized, eager to learn, inquisitive, and full of desire. If you are considering a current litter or one in the future, please browse our website or visit with us about our dogs, facilities, breeding program, training, and philosophy.
