Here is a link to AKC's Florida conformation event calendar.
If you see one you want to go to, find the superintendent column and go to their website. About a week -week and a half befor the show, the superintendent will post the number of Goldens entered, the time they will show and what ring. You don't want to make a drive just to find out you missed the Goldens. Here in AZ we always eek to be in the 8:00-9:45, early range
If you, like to travel you might be able to make a weekend of it. Since, the Goldens showing will probably only take between 15min-2hours to show, you may want to have plans to use the rest of your day if you are going to make a drive.

Hi! The next closest show to you will be March in West Palm Beach.
If you want to email me I can give you the Gank's phone number (my email is firstname.lastname@example.org). Most people don't put phone numbers on their websites, for obvious reasons!!!

Hi! I have a Jeter, Eagleridge Stormy Pt's Knockin Them Out The Park, daughter (born 2/14/2011).
She is an AMAZING girl!! Best temperament ever and her willingness to please is outstanding, as well as her desire to train. She picks up on stuff so fast. She received her Canine Good Citizen at 6 months, and Rally Novice at 18 months or so (could've been sooner, but I am new to all this stuff too, and I slowed her up). She is about to be certified as a Therapy Dog...before 2 years of age! Bella has passed her CERF with no breeders options, and passed her Heart. Will be doing hips and elbows when 2 this year.
Having said all that, she was out of a different Dam, with Good hips. I was green, too, like you, at knowing what all this meant. OFA's, Hips, Eyes, CERF, Normal, Fair, Excellent, Pedigrees, Clearances, 5-generations, COI, etc, etc. My head spun!!! It takes a good deal of time to figure this all out, but you've come to the right place! There are some very experienced people on this forum!! I knew about clearances, just didn't know any more than the minimum. I've learned a ton in the last 2 years since getting Bella, both on this forum, as well as through all the breeder friends I've met along the way.
Good luck in your search!! Consider joining a local Golden Retriever club in your area and get to know some knowledgeable people that can mentor you and help you get the best puppy possible for your needs.

RE: Eagle Ridge Golden Retrievers.
I am getting one of their puppies (March 26th) that were born Jan. 29th. I searched for a looooong time. Their pups have been chosen to be in some Disney movies, one was champion dog in the Euchaniba (sorry about the spelling) last year. I also live in Florida and it's difficult to find one here. I went to SEE the new pups about 4 days ago so now have more of an idea about them. They have a REALLY big place for dogs (and it's beautiful). They have 38 dogs total. All but two are goldens. Those two are Swiss Mountain dogs (make the goldens look small. lol) The place is very clean, no smells and they are watchful of them all. There were three litters! My dog's mother is Savannah. I also met the father. Pups look healthy & adorable. There was one litter that was lagging a bit behind because it was the mother's first litter & there was some shortage of protein in her milk (I didn't understand this). Sometimes things happen with first litters (as I understood it in layman's language). There was a place for puppies a little older that were training for show one day (adorable). There was never a growl, just happy dogs everywhere. There's a lady their named Josie who takes care of things & she was wonderful. We got to play with the puppies a bit and they're adorable. My husband asked all the questions about health, they guarantee them for 2 years with 80% refund policy so it sounds good enough to me. I'm new at this too. I've wanted others (but they're much farther away) and this seemed to be the best I could find here. Hope this helps.
Sounds like a lot of dogs and a lot of litters at once... Jeter is a very handsome dog. Neither of his parents have any clearances listed on OFA. On k9 data, there is a Penn Hip # for his sire, but no DI's or percentiles, so the number is meaningless. His mother has nothing listed on OFA or k9 data. These are questions to ask the breeder.
