I feel like any time I talk about a breeder or a bad experience with a breeder, I somehow get slammed for it, so I dunno. I'm glad people are having similar experiences though, so that proves I'm not crazy.

I'm not angry that Nana had giardia and coccidia when we got her, because stuff happens, but from what it sounds like, Judy really needs to clear that out of her kennel if every single puppy over the years has gotten it. It sucks. This should be something she talks to you about before you put down a deposit, because treating it practically comes with the package of getting a puppy from her.

I wish I researched harder, but I thought I did everything right. Former president of the oregon grc, current vice president... yet has 37 dogs, constantly has litters, each puppy is sent home with giardia and coccidia, and never I've never gotten registration. I'm beyond frustrated. I've been up since 4 in the morning from her diarrhea and have lost countless nights of sleep because she needs to go out every hour.

However, Nana does have a wonderful temperament. She's very sweet, has excellent social skills, and everyone she meets falls in love with her. She's extremely smart, and pretty mellow, so I guess Judy has that down.

I'm guessing that the experience of living in the area vs living outside of the area is completely different. I didn't get to visit any of the pups before pick up day, and I rarely got e-mails with updates and pictures. Everytime she would finally call me back, though, she would say how busy she was with everyone else visiting... oh.

Well. I guess it's my bad for living 700 miles away.

Edit: Also, I didn't know she had giardia/coccidia until I finished the 10 hour drive to get her.
I'm sorry to hear this about your breeder. You think you're doing everything right and you end up with a breeder less than stellar and a sick dog on top of that. I surely hope you take action to get Nana registered--I'm wondering if she's been suspended by the AKC which is why she isn't providing the appropriate registration paperwork and if it's just sloppy paperwork then that's a shame as well. Is it possible to contact the GR Club she is VP of and see if a little peer pressure might push her to do the right thing?

Yeah... on one hand, I wish I had gone down a different road, but then I wouldn't have my Nana banana and she's my greatest love, haha.

Yeah, definitely. I will keep pushing for registration until I get it, and if I don't, I will definitely alert the club. I always want to give the breeder the benefit of the doubt (she is an older woman and I could understand being forgetful...) especially after Nana's spaying. I hear sometimes breeders will not provide paperwork until a pup is spayed, but she never specified this- nor have I read it in the contract, but again... perhaps she believes this is the norm? I want to believe that she's not as bad as my experience tells me she is.

Some breeders don't send paperwork until proof of neuter or spay, but this should be a clearly listed clause in the sales contract.

If there isn't any reason for your breeder to not send you the papers, as long as there is no co-owner on the litter, your breeder could easily e-mail you the AKC registration information through their "My Dogs and Litters/Breeder Records" account on AKC.org.

Breeders can register a litter, and send all the registration form information and PIN codes in an e-mail to all buyers on the same day! If there is a co-owner on the litter, paper forms have to give given/mailed to the new owners.

If you are having problems getting AKC papers, contact AKC at info@akc.org Include all of the information, contract, e-mails etc. and they will send the breeder a letter giving them a limited time to respond.

I do hope one of the posters pursues their AKC registration--it seems that there isn't a single person on this forum that purchased from this breeder ever received the paperwork

Here was my email to AKC:

I bought a dog from a breeder 5 years ago. I never received the AKC paperwork. The parents are both registered on K9Data and OFA, so I know they are really AKC.
At the time I didn't care that much that the breeder didn't send the AKC registration form. But I am now interested in obedience and rally trials. I can not complete in AKC events without his registration. Any chance you could help me out with that? The name of the breeder is Judy Slayton of Northwest Goldens in Washougal, WA. Thank you

Here was my response from AKC:

Hi Stacey,
Unfortunately you do need to get application from the Breeder. If there's absolutely no chance, your other option is to register the dog ILP/PAL. You can find this application and what it entails on our website. American Kennel Club - akc.org

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
If a reply is necessary, please include all previous correspondence.

Have a great day!

I'm afraid there isn't much we can all do. We are at Judy's mercy. By the way I never had a contract with her. I spoke on the phone with her, checked her website and looked over the dogs online, and spoke to several referals. She checked out. I sent her a check to reserve the dog. She emailed me information once she received the check. We flew down and picked him up. I don't know if having a contract would have made a difference.

Then I think a little repeated pressure on the GR club she is VP of is in order. Hopefully, her peer group will help her place a little discipline on the paperwork.

If the breeder sold you the dog under the pretense that it was a "Golden Retriever" they need to provide at minimum a bill of sale that includes the names and registraion numbers of the parents. This is needed to substantiate that the dog you bought is in fact a Golden Retriever.

I saw the breeding on K9 data as well, and one of the dogs were not hers (she owned the female). I spoke to the other breeder of the temperament of her dog, and she and Judy are close friends.

I had a contract that I signed, but at the moment I've misplaced it... I'm positive that she did not specify that AKC registration would be given upon spaying, because I know I read that contract forwards and backwards and that is a hard point to miss.

After reading these posts, I'm glad that I did not get my babies from these people. My babies came home with the AKC paper for full registration.

They're not from champion blood line but they're still gorgeous and full of loves.

Disappointed in Wood Duck Goldens

I purchased a pup from this breeder and am bitterly disappointed. Like everyone says.. she seems so nice, she seems a bit busy, harried, hard to get a hold of, but nice and caring. Every single issue I see raised in this forum is an issue I encountered. The parasite meds being given out without a prescription and the instructions not to see your vet until the course is completed. My vet was pretty cheesed at those instructions. Since she says you never give a puppy those kinds of meds with a determination first that the parasites are present. The flotation test for the parasites is a fairly easy, not invasive, inexpensive test.
I have just taken my year old pup to the vet and found that she will have hip dysplasia as she ages. She also has a gimpy shoulder (which I hear another pup Judy sold has) and some urinary tract deformities. This is not what you expect at the price Judy charges, or the reputation she claims to have. I am contemplating legal action and have requested a full refund of the price of my dog. I never got papers either, but the worst part is, this was not to be just a pet, but also a working dog for me. I'm in Search and Rescue and a dog with a gimpy shoulder and bad hips is not going to be usable in the back country on a search and therefore I'm not going to put two years of training into a dog that will have to be retired within a year or so of completing training. Don't get me wrong.. I love my little girl with all my heart, but the future pain ahead of her as a result of this woman's poor breeding practice really has me cheesed off. She is pocketing a ton of cash while producing pups with a lifetime of pain ahead of them. That is just mean. Any of you who have posted concerns about her practices need to email me. I want to get as many names and pup dates as possible in order to make my case legally. I've given her the opportunity to avoid the unpleasantness of a lawsuit by refunding my money, but I don't have a lot of hope, as her credibility with me is nil.
