How to Find the Best Golden Retriever Breeders
Once you decide to get a golden retriever, the next logical decision is where to find the best golden retriever breeders and where to get a baby golden retriever form. While there are many choices available, several can be quickly ruled out.
Pet stores and newspaper advertisements, as a rule, should be avoided. Generally they are not informed about the breeds at all. They are usually out to turn a fast profit.
The best place to get a golden retriever is from a reliable breeder. The great ways to find the best golden retriever breeders are through such things as internet research, golden retriever magazines or recommendations from area vets. Once you’ve narrowed the field down, the next step is to inspect perspective breeder’s facilities.
A good breeder will have a generally clean facility with plenty of space for the number of golden retrievers. Generally some level of untidiness is acceptable, as it’s impossible to pick up after every golden retriever every minute, but the puppies should be kept in a clean, safe environment.
Remember that a good breeder is in the business because they have a true love of the breed. As such, they will ask you many questions to ensure that the breed is the right choice for you. They will want to be sure that you have enough time and earn enough money to care for that breed, as well as making sure that you are aware of any health risks associated with the breed. If a breeder does not question you, do not buy a puppy from them.
Finally, ask to see the entire litter that your perspective puppy belongs to, as well as the parents if they are available. If any member of the litter looks sick or any of the golden retrievers seem too skittish or too aggressive then you may want to get a puppy elsewhere. These tips will assist you to find the breeder that is right for you.
