Hi everyone! I've never had a Golden and I've learned so much from this forum over the past couple of months as I've tried to research more about the breed and how to chose a good breeder. I'm hoping some of you can give me your opinions about two litters I'm currently looking at.

The dogs are:
Magik's Easy Ryder X Omni's Just Doing Time

and

Boca Gold's Peking Duck X Honeykyst Southern Belle

Is that enough information?


Thanks for any input you have. :)

I think all of the breeders are reputable but I don't know them personally. Perhaps some Floridians will chime in. Here is some more detailed information about the dogs being bred. Above I have hyperlinked their AKC names to lead you back to their pedigrees.

Here they are again, this time hyperlinked to their OFA clearance page.


Magik's Easy Ryder X Omni's Just Doing Time

Sire: Ask for updated CERF eye clearance, breeder should have a hard copy. All other clearances are in order! :) Both of his parents are missing elbow clearances-- discuss with breeder.
Dam: Ask for updated CERF eye clearance. All other clearances are in order! :)

Also ask why the two are being bred. What is the goal for the litter?



Boca Gold's Peking Duck JH WC BISS X Honeykyst Southern Belle

Sire: Everything looks good here with clearances. Dog is titled, I like him a lot---very pretty boy!
Dam: Same as above.
As always, ask why the litter is being bred. What is the goal?
I like #2 best! :)

Both dogs from the first pairing only have a cardiac clearance from a practitioner- it is best to get the clearance from a cardiologist.

That was quick...thank you! I will be going to see litter #1 this weekend so I'll be able to ask about the missing information. I've also been leaning towards litter #2, but the first litter will be ready a whole month earlier!

Thanks again for your reply!

I noticed that too, but I wasn't sure just how important it is to come from a cardiologist versus a practitioner. Is it a deal-breaker type of thing?
