Golden Retriever Puppies

Golden Retriever puppy
Is there anything cuter than a golden retriever puppy? They are so cute, in fact, that it is easy to let our hearts rule in choosing a puppy, but an impulsive decision now can lead to expensive medical bills or behavior problems.

If you’ve evaluated your lifestyle and believe you have time and resources to raise a fur baby do your homework to ensure you purchase a healthy pup.

INSIST that any breeder you talk with has the puppies parent’s hips, elbows, eyes and heart certified and that you SEE the results. There is a breeder in VA charging $2500 for puppies whose mother has moderate hip dysplasia and claims it won’t be a problem if you don’t let your puppy run or wrestle too much until it is 2 years old. Had I not asked to see the paperwork, I might have purchased a puppy prone to hip dysplasia last year. BAD BREEDER.

Puppies should be raised “under foot” which means not outdoors in a barn or away from people. They need to be exposed to the sights, sounds and smells of a typical family so they are not afraid of the vaccum or TV.

Expect to pay for a healthy puppy. Most goldens from reputable breeders sell for $1200 and up.

A good breeder will want to know about you and your lifestyle before they send their golden baby to live with you.

Meet mom and feel comfortable with her disposition. Dad often does not live with the puppies and mom with good breeders as to prevent interbreeding.

A good breeder will ask you to sign a contract that you will not breed your dog unless you are buying a dog to show and then there will be another whole set of agreements to sign.

It’s HARD to find a reputable golden breeder. The BEST place to look is at the Golden Retriever Club of America’s web site under “Puppy Referral”. There is a person to contact’s name and number on the site by state or region. Call that person for puppies that are available from breeders who uphold the highest standards for the breed.

Be patient. Adding a new family member shouldn’t be a snap decision as you’ll live with the results for the next 12 – 15 years.
