I found the best way is to file the puppy adoption questionnaire that some breeders set up. In this way they know you are serious and not someone who is wasting their time. From my experience, they reply quite fast, telling me what their future plans are.
I have only dealt in person with one breeder here Northern California: Foxfire Golden Retrievers. I visited the kennel and am quite happy with it. The parents of their upcoming litter are sweet and adorable. I actually wanted to adopt them, specially Jett, the father. You can check the Foxfire website to check other breeders in the area. They all seem to have the same standard questionnaire. In the end, you still need to check the pedigree and health clearance of the parents.
