It brings us great joy to place our pups in to homes where they will thrive and provide love and lifetime friendship with their new families. We would especially love to see these puppies serving or performing in some way!
The puppies are raised in our home with their mama and our other adult dogs. We give each puppy a color id and track their weight and progress. We utilize the Puppy Culture protocol in raising the pups. The puppies are given early neurological stimulation and love each day so that they will become familiar with people and to aid in their development and intelligence. They will be introduced to different textures, places and people (especially children!) before they go to their new homes. We perform a personality test (Volhard test) around 7 weeks of age. This is small list of all we do to work with the puppies as they are in the early stages of training and developing here in our home. Our goal is to confidently prepare them for the things they will encounter and help them to be well adjusted for their new families. Please visit our Facebook page for daily updates on our puppies and dogs.
When it comes time to choose a puppy from the litter, we work with each family to find the right match.
At pick up time, the puppies will have received their first round of vaccinations, will be vet checked and previously dewormed. Included in their puppy packet will be food, their AKC paperwork, our health guarantee, their vet record, something that smells like the litter (blanket and toys), a collar and their new puppy folder. We currently use Bil Jac Large Breed Puppy Food.
We have a facebook group called LHA Golden Families, which is a fun place to see other litter mates growing and find out who’s achieving titles and obedience graduations. We are always here for support for the life of the dog. We encourage families to contact us with any questions, big or small. We also reserve first right of refusal should a family need to rehome their golden, no matter their age.
If you would like more info on how we raise the puppies, please feel free to inquire. The puppies are a part of our family and we love to keep in contact with their new families as they grow.
Our pups are sold with limited AKC registration for $3,000. We require a non-refundable deposit of $500 to make a reservation. If you’d like to be placed on our waiting list for an expectant litter we require a deposit of $100. Once the pups are born, you may send in the remaining amount of the deposit in order to complete your reservation.
We require a health guarantee contract with each new owner. Please ask to see the contract for details.
