  1. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy

    It will be a while before I actually get a puppy, along with the waitlist, I have my own timeline that I have to wait on for personal reasons. But far better to get on the list early and wait than to be ready and not be on the list yet! So, I get to be excited for the concept before getting...

    So this post is going to be one that is hard to write but I think is necessary to hopefully help or connect with anyone else in a similar situation. Like the title of this thread suggests, I had to give up my spot for an 8 week old golden about two weeks ago. The puppy was intended to be brought...

    From looking at a few posts, this seems like the place to go to get the scoop on reputable breeders, so…. I am looking for suggestions for reputable golden retriever breeders in or very near MI; bonus points for Grand Rapids/ West Michigan area, but that’s not mandatory. I don’t care about...

    Hello! I'm a new user looking for some help!

  6. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy

  7. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Hi, I'm searching for a puppy to be trained as my service dog. I live in Maine, and so far I've found 2 breeders who do temperament testing and match pups to the right family, which is exactly what I need. The first was in NH, and she's fabulous but won't be breeding again until late 2020. The...

  15. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Hello all. We are new to the site. I really love all the info here. I have passed on so many breeders not up to par and I owe it to this site. I am still looking for a reputable breeder with available pups. All the wait will be worth it though. So for now we are a dog less family. My 4 and 10...

    Well, there has been a change of plans. Instead of getting an 8 week old baby golden, I will be getting an 8 month old Lab that has been raised in the service dog prison training program. On the up side, she is already house and obedience trained. I should be able to take her almost everywhere...

  19. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    I just wanted to share my excitement. I think I am going to bite the bullet and apply to be a breeder caretaker for a service dog program! Basically, they give you a female puppy and you let her have litters for their program. It is a great opportunity to give back to a program that helped me...
  20. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Long post warning! I just posted an introduction, although I have been lurking for a while. As I said in my intro, I had debated between a couple of breeds for my next dog, but recent events convinced me that my heart is settled on a golden. Earlier this year, I was hit by a drunk driver, and...
