Talking Getting my Goodtime Golden on Monday - So Excited!

Hi Everyone!

I've been browsing the forum for some time now and finally decided to post for the first time now that it's official I'm getting my golden .

The lineage is out of Goodtime Goldens in NY. Here is a link to the litter:

https://www.k9data.com/pedigree.asp?ID=955682

Just wanted to see if anyone has any Casey pups or any pups related to Casey? Would love to hear any insight.

Also, I'm looking to start a puppy class soon, so if anyone has any recommendations in the Austin area, I would really appreciate them!

I know options like Zoom Room are pricier but I've heard great things. Petsmart is more affordable and their classes also seem good. I know it probably varies by trainer and location, but anything helps.

I'm also open to any new puppy tips

Thanks everyone! I'm so excited!!

Casey died such a long time ago most people who have dogs related would have him as a great great something.
He was a lovely dog, very popular stud dog.

Aw, there's NOTHING quite as exciting as those last days anticipating a new puppy. I hope you'll share lots of photos and let us hear about his adventures. Lots of people do an "Intro" thread and then update it every week, lots of fun and a great way to have a 'baby book' online.

If you use the search feature, it will bring up previous threads on any subject, try things like "puppy shopping list" or "recommended books for puppy" "best toys for puppy" . There are many threads here on items you can't live without and some great lists of things.

Strong, strong, strong recommendation that you reach out to the Austin Golden Retriever Club (you should join ) and ask for their recommendations on training groups. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1784535365131042 There are some very special Golden people who belong to this club, you really ought to consider getting involved.

About Us | Capitol Dog Training Club of Austin I'd also talk to a group like this about obedience, you will typically find that you can become a member after you've taken one or two classes and it's far more reasonably priced because the members teach the classes. You want to do a lot with your dog, this is the group for you. You'll find decades of dog experience with people like this.

My list of stuff you can't live without:

Best thing you can do is to teach your puppy a formal retrieve. This is an awesome dvd to get you started. SHe is a legend in Golden Retrievers: Jackie Mertens Sound Beginnings Retriever Training DVD

Wow, thank you for all the awesome replies and suggestions, so glad I joined the forum.

Kristy, thank you for all the links and tips you shared 🙂. I’ll be ordering some of that stuff on amazon!

I figured that would be the situation with Casey. It’s so crazy to me that people breed to dogs that died 10+ years ago. I think it’s a little funny to think about, but I guess it makes sense with him being such a popular dog.

I also told my breeder no gender preference as I’ve had the hardest time trying to decide what I want. Any tips here on the differences? I’ve heard boys sometimes tend to me more “I love you” while girls can be more “love me.” I think there might still be some wiggle room as puppies are being evaluated on Sunday.

Thanks again everyone for the greetings and wonderful ideas and tips. I’ve included some pictures I’ve gotten from my breeder and I’ll definitely make sure to post lots of pictures as my puppy arrives and grows. Enjoy! 🙂

What beautiful puppies. Wishing you much happiness with yours. Last year we trained with a young Goodtimes dog. He was very handsome and a nice temperament.

Casey appears in the pedigree of so many Goldens. I was interested to see that he was being used for a current breeding. Just checked my dogs' pedigrees and he appears 5 generations back in one of them and 6 generations back in the other.
