• What type of care do you provide for your dogs?  Our dogs and puppies receive a high-quality premium salmon-based diet daily. They are housed in a clean kennel in our home, which is also kept clean. They are bathed, groomed, well-exercised, and receive lots of attention, including early stimulation daily which helps puppies to adapt better to stressful situations.
    • What should I feed my puppy once I take it home?We recommend that you continue to feed your puppy the same diet it was fed when it was with the breeder. If you wish to change the diet of your puppy, it should be done gradually. You can consult with your veterinarian on how to best do this if needed. Puppies need time to adjust to their new homes. Having its diet remain the same for a while will help it adjust to the other new changes it is experiencing.
    • What type of health clearances have you completed on your Dam?We have completed all of the tests on our featured females as required by the Golden Retriever Club of America as well as adding a DNA test for genetic information. Because they are healthy dogs, they are an essential part of our breeding program.   You will find a link to their health clearances on each dog’s personal K9Data page.  We complete hips, elbows, eyes, heart, and DNA for all dogs in our program and post the results through the O.F.A., Orthopedic Foundation for Animals.  Please see the “Our Dogs” page for links to this information.
    • What type of health clearances have been completed on the Sire?
    • We make sure that we follow all requirements of the Golden Retriever Club of America in our selection of a top quality stud for a healthy breeding.  We make sure that we have a knowledge of temperament as well by paying a personal visit to meet the stud in advance.  When we plan a breeding, we post a link to the stud clearances as well.
    • What kind of health guarantee will you provide?We are in high hopes that all of our puppies will be healthy, happy, well-developed puppies. We have been selective in our breeding practices to screen out potential health problems Golden Retrievers face through testing and pedigree. They will have received proper worming and have received a first veterinarian’s screening prior to being available to you as a potential buyer. You will need to take your new puppy to your veterinarian for a full examination within five days of purchase. If at that time, your puppy is deemed to have a genetic health issue which is due to parentage, please contact us for a return.
    • When are puppies able to go to their new homes?The puppies will be ready for their new homes between the ages of seven and eight weeks.  We will be more specific once a litter arrives. Socialization is very important at this age and we highly recommend that they begin adapting to their new family and home situation at this age, as suggested by best breeding practices of the American Kennel Club.
    • How can I get in touch with you if I buy one of your puppies?We will be happy to answer your questions via phone and email for the lifetime of your pet. We aim to be available and help in training ideas. If we don’t know an answer, we can find out from our veterinarians, or other breeder friends and acquaintances at our local kennel club. We want our puppies to have the best home possible and would like to stay in touch with all of our puppies and families.
