Finding a Golden Retriever Puppy from a Responsible Breeder
 
You’ve decided you want to add a fuzzy golden bundle of joy to your family. You want it to be healthy, happy, and a good match for your lifestyle and circumstances. But where do you find the puppy that’s perfect for you?  Puppy Sales Website? Pet Shop? Dealer? Backyard Breeder?  No, No, No and No!  Not unless you want to risk getting a poorly bred and raised, sickly pup with temperament issues, at an elevated price. These people generally care only about taking your money, not about you or the dog. That’s no way to choose an addition to your family. So let’s find a better alternative!  The Responsible Hobby Breeder.  Now you’re on the right track! Dedicated hobby breeders take responsibility for every puppy produced and stand behind every dog they have bred, for the life of the dog. They have carefully researched pedigrees, double-checked health clearances, nurtured the dam, and raised the puppies in their homes. Their goal is to produce superior animals perfect for companionship and the various dog sports. In short, they have put their hearts and souls into breeding YOUR puppy. Where do I find a responsible hobby breeder?  Begin by going to http://www.grca.org/allabout/puppyreferrals.html. That is the website of the Golden Retriever Club of America and the page where you will find the puppy referral representatives from all of the local Golden Retriever breed clubs, listed by state. Contact the club reps in your area and ask to be put in touch with the breeders expecting litters. How will I know if I’ve found a responsible hobby breeder?
 
S/he will want to meet you face-to-face if at all possible
 
Will ask questions about your expectations, home environment, children, other pets, etc.
 
Will conduct a home check if at all possible, or ask someone from a local club to do it, or ask for several references
 
Will provide proof that sire & dam are at least 2 years old and have their health clearances for hips, elbows, heart & eyes
 
Will provide a 3-5 generation pedigree
 
Will tell you about any possible health issues in that pedigree
 
Will provide puppy wellness details from a veterinarian
 
Will probably provide a copy of the litter evaluation done by another knowledgeable breeder
 
Will provide AKC registration papers
 
Will talk to you about feeding, training and care of your puppy
 
Will have a contract for you to sign that includes responsibilities on both sides
 
Will take back the dog at any time if you no longer can care for it
 
Will be a member of the GRCA and probably a local club
 
Will be an active participant in at least one dog sport or activity
 
Will always be available to advise and consult on diet, vaccinations, injuries, health issues, etc.
 
Don’t hesitate to ask questions! If the breeder fits the profile above, you can feel confident you’ve found a responsible person.  A Word about Rescue...There are responsible breed-specific rescue organizations who can provide older Goldens to people who are not quite ready to raise a puppy. They will ask you the same questions, do a home check, ask you to sign a contract, and provide health and temperament information. They also will take back the dog if it doesn’t work out. Find out more at www.grca-nrc.org.
