Hello from PA
First of all thank you everyone here for being such a great resource. I live in the Philadelphia area and Iím on a quest for a Golden puppy. Iíve grown up with GSDs all my life and love them but this will be the first dog I can call my own and Iím in love with this breed. Iím just looking for a companion whoís affectionate and good with guests and strangers. Not that GSDs canít be all of these things but there is a special kind of goofy warmth Iíve seen in every Golden Iíve met and Iím addicted.
Might as well ask while introducing myself: any breeder recommendations? Iíve reached out to Harborview Goldens (kind of a hike for me but they seem to get glowing praise on this forum) as well as Sunfire Goldens.
I mainly work from home and have a fenced in yard. I jog 3-4 times a week in a nearby park but a high-drive jogging companion isnít necessary. Health is though (of course). Iím hoping for a Golden with the temperament and trainability of a therapy dog.
Thanks again for all of your great advice.
