Reputable Breeders in California?

Hi everybody. Just joined the forum. Very excited. After lots of research and thought my wife and I decided we wanted to add a golden retriever to our family. We are open to a rescue but would prefer a puppy.

We've contacted the local breeders in Souther Cal but they do not return calls/emails. The few we speak to no longer have puppies available. I've now moved on to San Diego and Northern California but would not be opposed to going out of state.

I was intriqued by Birnam Woods in Northern Cal. Any ideas, responses would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Oso

Another kennel in CA is Montair Golden Retrievers. I think alot of breeders/kennels get a whole lot of calls and emails from people interested in upcoming litters. I imagine these kennel owners are either out on the road campaigning their dogs or working 2nd jobs to keep the money flow coming in. That was my experience while searching for a pup for like 6 months!

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.

I'd like to ditto the reply from hvgoldens4.
Marylou is a very caring and responsible breeder.
I got my Max from her 17 months ago, and could not ask for a better puppy.
Full of energy, smart and easily trained.
His Father is "Lotto" from Harborview and his mother is 'Willow" from Marylou.

Good Luck,
Darrell
