Welcome to Roaming Rovers!


Joanne Pullin is the owner and founder of Roaming Rovers. She grew up in Newfoundland always having dogs, her father being an avid hunter.  At a very young age she helped open the first S.P.C.A. in Corner Brook Newfoundland and boarded several in her home until the shelter was available. She made her move to Nova Scotia in 1986 and continued her life with dogs.  Training under several trainers over the years, Joanne has experience with basic obedience, operant conditioning and has worked with dogs with behaviours including aggression. 

We no longer offer boarding or daycare. We closed Sept. 2, 2019.

Roaming Rovers is a CKC Register breeder of Golden Retrievers. Please see our Breeding Page for more information about litters.
