Asking $2k per puppy.I would want a lot more information about each of the adults in the breeding pair I was interested in than is given on their website. I also find it strange that they list so many dogs and yet claim them to be pets. There really isn't much information on their website at all (unless I am looking at the wrong site). How much are they asking per puppy?
My parents contacted them when they got the horrible news that their puppy has a degenerative disease in his front legs & a horrible skin condition. They of course have not resaponded. These people are rip off artists who don’t seem to care that they are breeding animals who will suffer needlessly because of overbreeding.I have one too, and they offer a one year money back guarantee on a puppy's health, so you should have contacted them if that was the case.....
Looks like you got lucky....I didn't. I hope you get lucky again...because I wouldn't wish on anyone watching their beautiful dog go through a lifetime of pain. I wonder who your new puppies parents are? After 14 years it won't be the same as your 1st dogs.We have had two dogs from them, Autumn and Winter. Autumn died in 2016 at the age of 13, winter is still going strong at 14 and two months. Still jumps in the pool and swims. We are getting two more from her with her next litter. We went back to her because our previous two dogs were healthy for a long time and lived a long life.
No complaints here....at all.
Did you have one of there puppies or are you just implying I was "lucky" based on the posts above?Looks like you got lucky....I didn't.

There will be a world of difference depending on the name of the breeder you are purchasing from. One appears to have historically done clearances and would be worth investigating and the other one, well, you couldn't give me on of those puppies for free. As Prism noted, a breeder who doesn't flaunt the registered names of her dogs publicly for all to see, along with easy links to clearances on OFA - the public registry - is 99.9% of the time going to be hiding poor breeding practices. The Golden Retriever Club of America has a breeder Code of Ethics for a reason, https://www.grca.org/find-a-golden/more-topics-before-you-buy/grca-code-of-ethics/.... Please advise if you have prior experience, that would be helpful.
Edit: our two dogs from them were from different breeding pairs and two years apart, so they didn't come from the same litter. So I guess we got lucky twice.
Did you ever tell her about your findings?I have a pup from this breeder who was diagnosed with luxating patellas and hip dysplasia in the first year.
Please be aware that it exists in the line
In my personal experience, boasting about no health problems whatsoever in that many generations is a lie, unless they can back it up with fully verifiable health clearances on OFA. Ask about OFA clearances and see what the response is.Did
Did you ever tell her about your findings?
I’m looking into this breeder and she said that there were no health issues with the dam, sire, dam and sire’s parents, siblings, or offspring. That there was a red flag for me as the likelihood of that being true is slim to none. I’ve also asked her the dam and sire’s official registered name and she’s being dodgy. Ghosted me and then when I asked again gave me an excuse about a relative in the hospital. Not saying she’s lying about being in the hospital with someone but she should be able to tell me names. It doesn’t take that long and it should be something she should know off the top of her head right?
