I've seen a number of recent posts where the OP looking for a breeder/puppy stated their local golden retriever club was not helpful in the search--eg. did not know of any litters available. Would be interested in your thoughts on if you did make contact & the club didn't have any leads or if you chose not to reach out to your club why. Please feel free to PM me if you'd like to share your comments privately. As a member of my own local club, I would like to make sure those who choose to ask for assistance in locating a breeder/puppy receive it. thank you!
