Searching for reputable breeders in British Columbia.

Hi everyone,

I'm currently searching for good Golden Retriever reputable breeders in the BC area. I live in Richmond, BC.

Does anyone have any opinions on Kulalani Goldens and Majecgold? I have contacted Christine Kobler at Redgold and have filled out an application but it has been a week and I have received no replies yet. I'm very nervous and anxious to hear back. How long does it usually take for breeders to reply back to your e-mails? This will be my first time buying a dog.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Hi Sweetally!

Yes, I have been on that website before and I would like to get a Golden pup at around fall or mid summer because I have travel back to Taiwan in March to visit my grandparents. Thank you for the help though!

If you are interested, there are a few great Golden breeders in Washington just across the line. Chuckanut Retrievers, Abelard, and Rush Hill to name a few. I spoke with Ken(Chuckanut Retrievers) a couple of weeks ago and I think they are going to have a female come in season soon and plan on breeding her if I understood him correctly.

Be Happy With What You Have!

Here is their list of breeders in BC.

I have heard some really great things about Red Gold. Have you tried calling her? I remember that she didn't really get back via email very much but if you call her, someone usually answers the phone.

Thank you! I'll check them out. I have heard good things about Chuckanut Retrievers.

No, I haven't tried calling her yet. I have sent her a second e-mail on Sunday asking if she has reviewed my application. I know she's very busy, but I'm just so excited since this will be my very first dog.

Thanks for the list!

All 3 breeders you mentioned are breeders in good standing with the Golden Retriever Club of BC and the National Club and they all hold executive positions with those clubs. They abide by our Code of Ethics and produce some very nice dogs. Sometimes it takes breeders a while to get back to people as they are involved in showing, training, full time work and life in general. I know they also devote considerable time to the clubs business.
Patience is needed when contacting breeders. LOL

I heard the good things about Majecgold. If anybody has a puppy from them, can you share your experience?

I believe Kulalani Goldens is a very reputable breeder. I have in fact myself visited them, seen their dogs, their size, temperament and their look. Very beautiful dogs! After my Golden Bello passed away 2 months ago, they permitted me to visit and help brush dogs to get my doggy fix too. Very nice people and gorgeous dogs! I have put a deposit and am awaiting the conception and am anticipating getting a puppy come this summer 2012.
