Fernamber was founded by Cheryl and Clive Gibson, but this website is mainly about the wonderful Golden Retrievers that have shared our lives.

In May 2005 Clive had to leave us and collected four of our dogs from Rainbow Bridge.  Now Cheryl is continuing to fly the Fernamber flag.

Cheryl and her four Golden Retrievers, April, Teagan, Paddington and Ashley live in in the outer north east of Melbourne Australia in a semi rural area on a five acre bush block.  Our home is surrounded by native bushland and we enjoy the natural surroundings and wildlife.


Our first Golden Retriever puppy came home with us in 1985 and she managed to change our lives completely.

Our first Golden Retriever puppy came home with us in 1985 and she managed to change our lives completely.  Since then we shared our lives with several Golden Retrievers who have all been an important part of our family.

We bred our first litter of Golden Retriever puppies in May 1990.  To date there have been nine Fernamber litters and we are very proud of their achievements.  Our aim is to breed typical Golden Retrievers with excellent temperament and working ability.  We strive to breed well adjusted, sociable puppies who will fit into their new homes with ease.

Clive was a full panel ANKC Obedience Judge licensed to judge Novice, Open and Utility classes.  In his spare time he was an Instructor at the Northern and Northcote Obedience dog clubs.  In any time left over, Clive trained and competed in obedience and tracking trials with our Golden Retrievers. 

Cheryl was a member of the committee of the Golden Retriever Club of Victoria for many years and is a Life Member of the club.  She is currently a member of the GRCV Working Dog Sub Committee and Obedience Trial Secretary for the club.
