About certification

Hi, I’m looking for a golden retriever for my family with two kids. I found a breeder near Los Angeles where we live. We went to see their dogs and we like them. But the breeder only provide hip certificate. Their puppies are little cheaper than other reputable breeder. How do you think? Should I give up and go for another reputable breeder? Any suggestions of other breeder near me? Thanks!

Elbow dysplasia can be debilitating. I personally would look for a breeder who does hips, elbows, hearts, and eyes.

I agree 100% with @DanaRuns , elbows are a major problem. You definitely need those clearances.

I looked up Lucky Charm Golden Retrievers. Could you post the registered names of the parents?

I see one dog on the website that appears to have some clearances, but I just saw an add on AKC Marketplace with a female with no clearances. I'm wondering if it's the same litter?

Lucky Charms- Gemma- https://www.ofa.org/advanced-search?...20Fools%20Gold her PH results put her in a moderate risk for HD and she does not have eye clearances..
Theo- his foreign clearances were done at just a few months old. They are not adequate.

I completely don’t know what the number on the pedigree. All of you are really experienced! I will keep looking... I feel tired after looking for a couple of months already...

That's what I thought, but I have no idea what the foreign clearances are....

Trust me elbow problems are awful! (not to mention expensive)

FWIW_ you can always look @ when the clearances were input to k9data... that does not tell you when they were done necessarily but tells you when they decided to post them.In this dog's case, he was just 5 mo old or so.
