I'd recommend that you start a new thread, maybe called Any references for 24 Karat Goldens?.

Perfectly written!!!! Every time I have a litter and sell puppies I spend so much time educating them on what they should be asking / looking for. Even if they don't buy a puppy from me, I hope they will do their homework.

You have a very impressive lineup of dogs in your signature!!!

Hi! I'm going to buy a retriever, but I'm not sure what breeder is the best to deal with. I've looked through many reviews (Veterinary and vet services review and complaints), but still can't find a proper answer. Can you help me? How to choose a breeder?

Does the seal of 'AKC Breeder of Merit' actually mean something?

Thank you!
I was wondering about it, because I saw this listed for a breeder, that I know did not have all health clearances on both dogs before having litters with them years ago. I don't know if he had that "AKC Breeder of Merit" status at that time.

Hello I am new to the forum, I find this very helpful! I have been wanting a golden retriever since I was younger and have been searching the Internet to find one. I've found a lot that have them for very cheap and also have posting for a bunch of different kind of dogs and include shipping in their 300$ price , I found that very suspicious so thanks to my husband for suggesting I join a forum, I found this one. Glad to be here

Unfortunately, all a breeder has to do is state that they do health clearances. The AKC does not verify this. The Breeder of Merit program is mostly a marketing thing.
