Has anyone had any experience dealing with this website: Top Golden Retriever Breeders - Maryland Golden Retriever Breeders

They claim to enforce a code for ethics for breeders. It just seems kinda strange not dealing directly with the breeder.

Thanks,
John

This appears to be a puppy broker. Typically the dogs they sell will come from puppy mills. I would not deal with this organization, period the end.

If you are looking for a good breeder, please post where you are located or how far you are willing to travel and I am sure the board members will be able to recommend good breeders in your area.

It's a puppy broker site--change the state and you can find identical websites with other states. The code of ethics is a joke--what about the GRCA CoE? Not a place I would support.

U-Turn!

They have this same banner for California and, I'm sure, for every other state. The pups prices are out-of-the-ballpark for a potentially very poor quality puppy. Please look elsewhere based on recommendations from the GR Forum and your research. Vicki

Thanks all! I thought it seemed a little fishy. I am in Central Maryland and would be willing to travel to surrounding states: Va, Delaware, southern PA, NJ.

Thanks,
John

When are you looking to get a puppy? And what are you looking to do with your new dog?

This site looks terrible! Between $1,000 and $3,000 for puppy mill puppies! Wow! Poor puppies. I hope they all find good homes, but this should be illegal.

John you are in luck. It looks like there is a show on the17-20 right in your back yard. It is the Carroll KC and Annapolis KC dog shows. They are being held at...
Howard County Fairgrounds
2210 Fairgrounds Road
West Friendship, MD

This would be a great place to meet breeders that are in your area. Also, a great way to network. Sometimes if a breeder does not have anything now, they know someone who will. The show is closing on the 2nd. Usually the superintendent puts up the number of dogs entered shortly after and the ring schedule about a week out from the show. Here is a link to Mb-F the superintendent InfoDog - Dog Shows Held January 14, 2013 - January 20, 2013
