I second the suggestion to check out Delmarva. Lovely dogs and a breeder with a very good reputation. Plus the dogs are gorgeous, did I mention that???

Laura - thanks for the tip on the dog show. I'll have to check that out.


Delmarva's website says they won't have any puppies available until Fall 2013. The Chesapeake Golden Retriever Club sent me a list of local breeders, so I'll be checking them out too. Thanks all for your help and advice!

Not sure what your timeline is, but one way to approach finding a pup is to locate a breeder first that you click with and has phenomenal goldens and then wait for the right litter as opposed to just looking for an available puppy.

As I have mentioned on other threads - IMHO don't rely on a website - go and meet the breeder, try to develop a relationship with the breeder way before you settle on a puppy. That relationship will mean more in the long run than anonymous posts on the web.

You can also try the Potomac Valley Golden Retriever Club as well.

Good luck with your search! My one suggestion is that you will probably find that you have much better luck with finding a truly quality litter if you widen your time frame a little. Most puppies are spoken for before they are born, leaving a minimum of eight weeks for them to be old enough to take home. So if you are waiting to wait a few months for the right puppy and to get on waiting lists and etc, you will end up with a great dog I'm sure. My breeder, for example, is planning another litter but not for a few months. I'm sure the puppies will be spoken for and there will be a list before the breeding even happens.
