  1. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    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...
  2. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Hello! I'm a new user looking for some help!

  4. 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...
