Anyone have strong feelings about how working dogs do as companion dogs?

Thanks,

From a reputable breeder, a working dog should have a good on/off switch. As long as their exercise needs are met, they should make absolutely wonderful companion dogs.

I'm pretty sure that I will be attending the show at Cow Palace! Which day are you going?

Thanks nixietink. I'll be going on Sunday the 29th for the full day.

I've had my first conversation with the Ryska's. They were very frank, including their feelings about the show at the Cow Palace. I like that!

I can tell it's going to take a while to find the right litter. Fortunately, I'm in no hurry to make a decision...

Well, it looks like I won't be going to the Golden Gate Kennel Show at the Cow Palace after all...

I'm from North California as well and finding a red puppy up here was impossible. We decided to get our girl shipped from Minnesota in two weeks from today! There should be more red goldens in this area!!! Hope you are enjoying your pups company!

So far, Linda and Jennifer are at the top of the list.

If anyone else has experience with Linda or Jennifer, I'd appreciate reading about it!

For that matter, if anyone has recommendations for Northern California breeders, please let me know. I've already been to NorCalGRC; I found their breeder referrals to be of limited value.

I just joined the Golden Retrieve Forum and was so happy to see the discussion about Foxfire Goldens in Petaluma. I have 2 of the sweetest, healthiest, good natured, beautiful goldens you could ever dream of that we were lucky to get from Foxfire. Chelsea will be 5 years old in February. She is the daughter of Henley and Flirt. Jackson will be 5 years old on the 4th of July. He is the son of Henley and Lola. Linda is wonderful. We went out to her place to visit before we decided on Foxfire. What I liked was that she was interviewing us as much as we were checking her out. She does not let her pups go to just anyone. She wants good solid homes for her pups.

We had lost our previous 2 goldens within 6 months of each other a year before we got Chelsea and Jack. We were finally ready to love another golden. Linda let us come out as many times as we wanted to visit our pups before they were ready to come home with us. I would highly recommend Foxfire for the health, temperament and conformance of their pups.

We live in the Dallas, TX area now and people stop us all the time to tell us how beautiful our Goldens are and ask where we got them. I tell them they were born out in the country in Petaluma--God's country. We miss NorCal!

Essex Golden Retriever breeds red field goldens up in Lodi.

BREEDER OF: GOLDEN RETRIEVER PUPPIES FOR SALE & HUNTING GOLDEN RETRIEVERS IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

I haven't heard what the community thinks of them. Maddie is from there and she's a great pup.
