Breeder in Maryland

Hi--
Does anyone have any thoughts on Farmstead Puppy Paradise in Maryland? [URL="http://farmsteadspuppyparadise.com"] We've had 3 Goldens, and our son and daughterinlaw, who live in the DC area are looking for a Golden puppy perhaps this fall. Any recommendations for breeders in Virginia, Maryland or eastern Pennsylvania?

Captivate Goldens in MD is a solid choice along with Delmarva Goldens also in Maryland too.


Looking at their site, it gives not such a good vibe. The name of them doesn't a good feel to it either. I looked and the first dog I clicked on, FARMSTEAD'S ONCE UPON A DREAM has a deficient heart certification. It was done by a practitioner and not a cardiologist so it's pretty much useless and is missing eye certification which have to be done yearly. Chicco doesn't have a proper Cardiac either.


LOL OMG. I looked at the available puppy page. They are a breed for profit puppy mill it looks like. They breed Goldens, pugs, Corgi's, Huskies AND Boston Terriers! good grief


I would consider them... move alone, heck just run. especially for $2k

Farmstead was totally not on my radar when researching and never a recommended GRCA breeder through their puppy referral. I recommend reaching out to the MD GRCA clubs and they’ll send a list of breeders who adhere to COE.

Thank you for your suggestions. I've passed them along to my son and he'll no doubt follow up with contacts to the GRCAs.

Reputable Breeders in VA/MD/DC area

We are getting our puppy from Cheryl Dunkin at Laurel Ridge Goldens. So handing over my research of last 6 months! These are all good and reputable breeders information I received from the various Golden Retriever Clubs based in VA/MD and DC area.

Casey Goldern retriever
Dromara Goldens
Baybreez*Golden Retrievers
Delmarva*Goldens
Kisamore*Goldens
Laurel Ridge Goldens
Lycinan Goldens- Quality AKC Golden Retrievers- Harford County, Maryland
Fire Star Goldens
El Dorado Goldens
Autumn Lake Golden retrivers
CaneD'Oro Golden Retrievers
Etá*D’Oro Goldens

I would suggest you email the puppy referral of various clubs nearby:
Potomac Valley Golden Retriever Club (PVGRC)
Lenape Golden Retriever Club (central/eastern PA)
Greater Pittsburgh Area Golden Retriever Club (western PA)
Autumn Valley Golden Retriever Club (northeast PA)
Sandlapper Golden Retriever Club (both North and South Carolina)
Tarheel Golden Retriever Club (North Carolina)
Garden State Golden Retriever Club (NJ)
Chesapeake Golden Retriever Club (eastern shore area of Maryland and Delaware)
Additionally, you can try the GRCA regional puppy referral folks: https://www.grca.org/find-a-golden/w...presentatives/

Hope this helps!

I really like Celebrate Goldens in Salisbury. I've never gotten a dog from them, but the breeder reached out to me last year and let me tag along with her at a local show. She answered ALL my very novice questions about ring procedure, grooming, structure (layback of shoulder? rear angles? open coat?), and whatever else I was curious about. I also really like that she does agility with her dogs as well. She works pretty closely with Patty Pace of Sandpiper goldens.
