    Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    I've finally found a couple of breeders that I like, after much research of breeders from MA to PA and after weeding out those that either seemed unethical OR didn't have litters available to coincide with our time frame. Here's the thing: My #1 concerns are health and temperament. But there is...

  8. Is it too late to teach an old dog "new tricks"?

    Golden Retriever Hunt and Field
    Hello everyone! Wow, haven't been on here in a while but thought I'd drop by and see how the "golden community" is doing. :) I also have a few questions about finding a field training program for my older but very energetic and field-driven golden retriever, Amber. She turned nine in January...
