New Here


So, we've recently been thinking of adding a dog to our family. We have been researching a few breeds,with Golden's, & Sheltie's being our top choice's.There are a few other breeds we are looking into, but we aren't as interested in those breeds.

I am planning to get involved in agility,dock dogs, & obedience.Agility will probably be competitive. Dock dogs & obedience will be for fun, & possibly competing .


Sorry for the boring introduction, & lack of information. Don't have much to say

Welcome to the Forum!

There are lots of "sticky" threads to help people who are learning about breeders of Goldens and trying to find a puppy. Look for those here: Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy - Golden Retrievers : Golden Retriever Dog Forums.

When you think you have found a breeder you like or you want help finding one, it's good to create a new thread asking for input from members with knowledge in that area. We tend to be a bit intense about breeders and breeding, but it is out of love for the dogs.

Good luck!

Here is a link to the Golden Retriever Club of America, there is a lot of information about Goldens and choosing a breeder.
