ACQUIRING A GOLDEN

 

Owning a Golden

Please click on the links for Realistic Assessment and Choosing a Breeder and read the information they contain, before proceeding to the Acquiring a Golden link. 

Become familiar with what you should expect from a breeder, and what a breeder might expect from you.  If you aren't happy with what a breeder is telling you, find another one.

Read the Club's Code of Ethics and ask yourself whether the breeder you are talking to is abiding by the Club's rules.

Choosing a Breeder

There are many Golden Retriever breeders.  Find out more about choosing a breeder.  Here is a link from the Golden Retriever Club of America, detailing what a responsible breeder does.
