Our puppies are raised in our home to ensure their development includes the sounds, activities and smells of a typical home. All parents have Hip, Elbow, Eye, heart, tested for prcd-PRA (unless cleared by parentage), GR PRA1 (unless cleared by parentage) and Ichthyosis (unless cleared by parentage). In the case one parent is a carrier for pcd-PRA then the litter will be tested as well prior to leaving for their new homes.
For more information in prcd-PRA.
The puppies are introduced to Neurological Exercises (BioSensor exercises from 3-17 days of age), and receive a variety of stimulations to enhance their motor and mental skills; socialized with people of all ages and sizes; socialized with household pets and other dogs in the house; to crate training; and they will have several rides in the care prior to leaving home. They are handled regularly including having their first bath, grooming and nails trimmed.
All puppies are assessed for their conformation: structure and type; temperament and working ability and introduced to birds to test their birdiness.
Occasionally, we will list litters from other breeders who have litters available and whose breeding program we feel are based on responsible values and accountability. These breeders keep the Golden Retriever standard in mind, as well as the health, temperament, trainability, and well-being of each individual dog that they place. Please contact them individually regarding how they raise their litters and about acquiring a puppy.
Note we do not remove the dew-claws as they are believed to aid the dogs when turning while running and jumping.
