Recommended breeders in the Southern California area

I am hoping to get some help to find a quality breeder in the Southern California area. I live in the Inland Empire, so breeders in Southern California would be convenient, but I would be willing to work with a breeder from California, Nevada, or Arizona.

I'm looking for a male puppy with a darker golden color, not an English Cream color. I would also like to have the puppy to come from lines where the adults grow to about 70 pounds with proper diet and exercise. I'd prefer to not have the dog be bigger than that.

Lastly, I'm hoping to find a puppy as described above that would be available to pick up at the beginning of June 2013 at the earliest.

I know this is a pretty specific idea of what I would want and I appreciate any help!

Check this out Orange Empire Dog Club - Breeders Directory - Golden Retrievers

I only know the one breeder My-Magical Goldens and I am not sure if she is still breeding. We had 3 goldens in the past from her and they were great. Be sure to check clearances on all breeders.

In Sylmar, CA is Sunbeam Goldens Our Gambler is from Cathie and she has beautiful dogs and does all clearances.

So, no matter what breeder you work with, you are looking for girls who would be coming in to season and bred from the beginning of February onward.

I believe that Nancy Chadwick might have a pup that could work for you. Chadwicks Golden Retrievers.

Good Luck

Thanks everyone. I've put out a bunch of emails to recommended breeders so we will see what comes back. I know that it's still very early to be asking about upcoming litters but my fingers are crossed that being on lists will work out. If anyone has other suggestions of breeders that haven't been mentioned please let me know.

There are a ton in Southern California, I'm just not sure who is planning breedings in that particular time frame. I will be at a show this weekend and can ask around to see if people are planning any breedings in a few months and update next week.

Actually it is great to start looking sooner rather than latter as a lot of breeders may have full lists of folks waiting for puppies before the breeding ever takes place. Also, the higher you are on the list the more likely you will be to get a puppy because you never know how many there will be and what the boy/girl count will be.

I highly recommend our breeder who has a litter coming. Her website is
www.cantanogoldens.com.

Our pup is potty trained. No accidents since the day we brought him home. The daddy is a therapy dog. Our pup is so sweet, loving, calm, so easy to train. He's sleeping by my chair right now. He loves to be brushed. He knows where his brush is and knows where he goes to be brushed (my ottoman). I brush him twice a day for an hour while watching TV. He's not crated or in a pen - that only lasted 2 weeks. He hits the pads and goes outside. (I do have baby gates up for the living room/dining room/family room/stairs.) He's a gem, a gift, and we can't believe how blessed we are that he is so EASY! He actually wants to go find a quiet spot to sleep (loves the garage) and will hit the pads in there too. We were first to pick a male and she helped us with picking and she was so incredible spot on! Her husband knew everything about the pups too. She said he was like his dad, we met his dad, and he is just like his dad. Very laid back and cuddling and loving. And he's beautiful! Light coat just adorable. We can't go anywhere with him without massive attention. And he just loves it all, loves the attention, lets everyone pet him, espeically little kids. He could totally be a therapy dog. He doesn't lick, doesn't bark, just looks up with his snout and let's everyone pet him. He's very special. We took him to an outdoor mall after that horrible shooting and he seemed to lighten everyone up, young kids, teenagers, adults, just all enjoyed petting him. For some reason, he loved the lil toddlers, especially if they were a lil afraid. From what the breeder says, he's just like his dad.

Hope that helped. Don't get me started on talking about my pup...lol..I can't stop LOL

I think that there are some red flags with Catano Goldens and the OP needs to be aware and diligent in his research. Did you misspell the kennel name, as I could only find Catano.

Their current litter:
Sire: Catano's Emperor Maximilia
K9data: http://www.k9data.com/fivegen.asp?ID=468503&type=hip
OFA: http://www.offa.org/display.html?appnum=958151#animal
While he himself has all of his clearances as recommended by the GRCA, the clearance history of his ancestors is very spotty with numerous dogs without clearances. You want breadth and depth of clearances, that is not present here.

Dam: Catano's Hyacinth Bouquet
K9data: http://k9data.com/fivegen.asp?ID=466671&type=hip
OFA: http://www.offa.org/display.html?appnum=1509134#animal
This girl has no hip or elbow clearances and again her pedigree for clearances is spotty at best. Keep looking. There have been many good resources posted in this thread. Please continue your search.

I find it odd that they would link to health clearances from their website but not have hips and elbows done. Catano's Hyacinth Bouquet is old enough to have final clearances so the lack of clearances in the OFA database either means they weren't done or she failed both hips and elbows and they did not release the abnormal results. Neither of those is a good thing.

I agree that the health clearances in the pedigrees are very spotty. I also think they are significantly overcharging for their puppies. $2000 for a puppy out of parents with spotty clearances in their pedigree and no titles on the parents is WAY too much for Southern California. For $2000 both parents should be finished AKC champions.

I have no doubt that CleosMom loves her puppy, but looking at the hard facts on this litter I think you can do better.
