Dog Lover’s Guide to Golden Retrievers Breeders
by: Nelson Williams

There is plenty of pride and joy in owning a golden retriever. Most importantly, you would want to bring home a healthy pup that turns out to be physically and emotionally stable. To pick the right one you will need to search for reputable golden retrievers breeders. Depending on your location, you may have the privilege to choose. If not, then you may have to consider widening your base in order to find the right breeder.

Many may claim to be golden retrievers breeders, but there is a lot you will need to check on so that you don’t end up with a low quality pedigree. To begin with, avoid looking for a puppy at pet shops. They may not offer the best quality breed. Another type to avoid is backyard breeders who only look to make a fast buck and focus on breeding their females with the primary objective of selling the puppies. Most importantly, they may not have a clue about the health issues about the breed and lack the ability to breed dogs properly.

Reputable golden retrievers breeders are more interested in breeding pedigree pups and are most knowledgeable about the breed. Those that consider it as their hobby are the ones to approach if you want the very best in golden retriever pups. While they do make monetary gains, they also ensure that their pups are of the best lineage and are going to good homes.

Several factors need to be considered when searching for golden retrievers breeders. A breeder must have adequate knowledge about goldens and their health issues as well as have the passion for breeding. Those who personally take care of the breeding process are worth approaching. When you approach a breeder, ask them about the pup’s lineage and the possibility of observing both the parents. A good breeder will be happy to talk about the traits of the parents such as obedience, hunting, and agility. Hunting dogs are agile, lanky, and athletic with a shorter coast as compared to show dogs that are stockier and heavy-boned with a dense coat.

The best way to determine a healthy pup is to ask your veterinarian to examine them. You could also examine the pup for any rash or dull coat that could be signs of neglect. Most importantly, you need to make sure the pup is over seven weeks so that you do not disturb the physical and emotional attention they need from the mother in his early days.

When visiting golden retrievers breeders ask to see the health certificates of both parents to eliminate the possibility of any health problems. Kennel club registrations are also important especially if you desire to put your pup in the show ring. It is important to understand the puppies are not churned off an assembly line where everyone is identical. Though the breed may be the same the puppies from one breeder will differ from another. It is the knowledge and skill of golden retrievers breeders that make the difference. A good breeder will know how to select the parents and raise the pups in an appropriate manner.

Call them knowledgeable or responsible breeders, they can only qualify if they produce puppies that are raised in the house and not a basement or kennel. Remember, good breeders may ask you many questions. Take this as a giant step towards finding the right breeder.
