Thumbs up Best breeder of English Cream Goldens!

Hi,

I'm new to the forum. After researching breeders for almost a year, we welcomed our new puppy, Hudson, into our home 2 weeks ago. He is from Stoneledge Golden Retrivers in Massachusetts. We are so in love. He is the best puppy ever. He went to bed at 10:00pm last night and slept until 7:15am! Feel free to ask me anything. Below is information on Stoneledge.

The link you included went to your blog, not Stonebridge Golden Retrievers.

Is this the Stoneledge you're referring too?

Stoneledge Golden Retrievers

I am considering getting an English Golden Retriever and have been looking at a lot of web sites and talking to a lot of breeders. One breeder told me that the lady at Stoneledge is refusing to do DNA testing for ichthyosis which sends up a red flag for me. I was under the impression that ichthyosis can be really bad, is more common in English goldens and can show up at an older age, so do any of you think it is important that the parents have been tested even though the DNA tests are not reqauired by GRCA?

Wow...I just saw this and looked it up...I had never heard of ichthyosis before and lo and behold...Chance has this!!! I've been asking vets forever about why his skin has so many grey flakes in it and no matter what I do they never go away! Geez...it's good to know what it is, now I'll just have to do my usual research, (i.e. hours and hours ) on it.

His coat looks exactly like the picture in this article, only Chance's flaking is 10x worse :

I dont know about the condition or but make sure you see all the clearances and that they are up to date. Dylan is Canadian and she is going by the Canadian regulations for his prelims for his hips and elbows which he can get at less than two years of age. So dont let throw you. You can look at the GRCA and GRCC websites.

We have client who is struggling with a "white" golden who has ichthyosis. They are trying baths 3x a week and some essential oils, but it is rough.

I think that morally anyone who breeds dogs from the "English" lines should test not just for icthyosis, but PRA.

responsible breeders do and are testing for icthyosis and PRA of both the US and UK types....

I always love when people come here and the first words are " the best ".... well first anyone marketing as English Cream would not be in my list of "best"
secondly you could go to the guy down the street and the reality is that we all love our dogs regardless of the breeder they come from so that is no real test of breeding quality if you love your dog or are happy with your dog...

I am not sure that I believe that English dogs have a higher rate of icthyosis (or however the heck you spell that) but it is certainly there and should be tested for .... as well as pra, hips, eyes, heart and elbows... you know the basics

I personally know of many breeders of English style dogs who I would consider reputable... is one of them the best... who knows...

Being a great Golden breeder and breeding for a particular color extreme are mutually incompatible. Therefore I submit that "Best breeder of English Cream Goldens" is prima facie fallacious.
