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?

You have to demonstrate that your active with your dogs, that you do all of your heath testing, and That you are active in breed clubs etc.

You are proving you are breeding to better the breed of you choice and not for the Cash. because belaive me if you are doing it right you loose money ha ha ha

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.
