Tips in Breeding Golden Retrievers
by: Michael Corben

If you are new to the world of breeding golden retrievers then it is at most importance that you should understand that breeding golden retrievers is not an easy job. If you want to become a reliable golden retriever breeder, then you must be very thorough with every single detail of the specifications on how the dog should be bred. If you do not have enough knowledge about breeding the dog or if you are not interested in breeding at all, then I would still advise that you should not avoid the breed. But breeding goldens just for the sake of money will never benefit you in any way. Believe me that there are so many issues raised all because breeding was not done properly. Hence, you must only breed golden retrievers if and only if you know the basic protocol of breeding.

Reliable breeders will always make sure that the puppies that are produced will not inherit any bad genes from the parents. Therefore, breeding golden retrievers should be taken seriously. If you are not careful right from the start of breeding, it has a he tendency that the breeding may lead to complications or worst, may even lead to death of the puppies produced. Moreover, breeding golden retrievers requires a lot of money. Before even starting to breed, see to it that you have sufficient funds and resources to support the needs of your breeding dogs and the future pups that it will produce. You must also remember that breeding goldens requires a lot of time. Once the female golden gets impregnated, you must be extra careful with her. If the male dog has been sterilized before hand, the female retriever will not get pregnant. A responsible breeder must also see to it that he makes a good choice. The choice on what dog to breed will depend on the dog’s age, nature, intelligence and dog line. The medical history of the parents is also very crucial and must be taken into consideration. The least that a breeder would want is to produce a puppy with bad genes; therefore, breeders must pay attention to the medical condition of the dogs that will be bred.

The responsibility of the breeder is to make sure that he gets both the female and male retriever. This generally means that the breeder needs to spend extra time with the dogs. As a matter of fact, the breeder may need to personally facilitate the breeding of the dog. The process can turn out to be complicated especially if you own the dogs considering that there may occur unwanted complications during the process. For instance, if the mother becomes ill and looses the capability to nurture the puppies, then you would have to nurture the puppies on your own while at the same time, taking good care of the mother.

With all of this information in mind, you will be able to understand that breeding retrievers is not an easy business. It requires perseverance. Thus, before indulging in breeding this type of dogs, assess first yourself if you are capable to become a reputable breeder.
