Here, I'm starting a list of breeders in SoCal, from the Mexican border to the Central Valley and Central Coast. I'll add to it as I go. Most will be what I believe to be good and reputable breeders, but there may be a few cautionary tales listed here, too. Feel free to add to my list.

A "*" means that I know the breeder personally and recommend them.
A "!" means that I would not recommend getting a puppy from this breeder.

All * and ! are my own personal opinions, as of the date of this posting, and may change after the time to edit the post expires.

Okay, here we go...

Thank you very much. I'm now going to request that the identical thread I started three years ago be locked. I spent a very long time putting that list together. I really appreciate that you have duplicated it so it can continue to educate and stand as a resource for members here.

And thank you for including me, since the mods suddenly deleted me from my own thread, which has been there for three years without a problem, until suddenly today it's a problem for some unknown reason. I truly appreciate your efforts, as I'm sure readers here will appreciate it for years to come.

--Dana

I think some of this information is out of date at this point, so I would refer to the old thread that Dana linked, above.

All I did was copy and paste the original post per Dana. I have no idea what is outdated or not.

Oh totally, I'm just noting it if people are looking. There are breeders I would add to that list at this juncture as well as breeders who are on the list who are no longer actively breeding.

Are you asking if you can be added to the original thread?

If so, no that thread was closed per your request. No additional posts can be made in it.

Your info is included in the first post of this thread, at least your FB page is which has a link to your website.

Members have 4 hours to edit a post, after that a member cannot make any changes to a post.

Thanks. :) Yeah, I was asking about this thread. Thank you for doing it!

OOPS! Now that I look at the first page, only our Facebook page is listed next to our name. Can you or another mod please supplement with the website or just replace the Facebook page with the website? Thanks.

Would someone kindly post my website in this thread, for Esquire Golden Retrievers? Even though I created this list, the mods have threatened to suspend me if I post my own website address. Some bizarre rule where I can post every breeder in the world's website except my own. And while I asked above for it to be added to the OP, I guess they have declined, concluding that while everyone else gets their website posted, my Facebook page is good enough for me. So, if the OP won't be modified to add my website, would someone kindly post it here?

Thanks.

This is a great list and I would love to get a puppy soon from a recommended person on the list. Some of the links or facebook links are not working. Also going through most of the sites they don't keep them updated and just the first 5 I picked at random the last litter posts are from 2015 or 2016.. Are these all "active" breeders?

Most folks don't keep their websites updated. They are hobbyists, not businesses, and so websites are a low priority. The websites exist primarily to give you a way to contact them and some information about them. Email and/or call each breeder that interests you.

Sorry, there just aren't any shortcuts. It's not as easy as finding litters from unethical greeders, who do maintain it as a business and make it easy for you to know about litters. If you want a well-bred Golden, you have to do the groundwork.

As a web developer it is so frustrating to see these terrible out of date web sites. It is so easy these days to have a working up to date website with sites like squarespace, wix, etc.

That being said I thought I'd help this list out, as I found it very helpful, but slightly out of date. Since we can't update the original thread, why don't we just link to a google sheets, that can be edited by the community, so it's always up to date and users don't have to scroll through several pages of posts to find the latest information!

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/10jgYyejQI8KSbJpkZfdxIIMx-kjPdKjf4bd6kzlO94I/edit?usp=sharing

I think that should work. I just copied info from Dana's great post, only filled in the stuff I knew for sure at the moment. Going to go in and try to filll in the missing gaps. If anyone would like editor access, please let me know and I'll add you.
