Alright followers! I need your help! I’m considering buying a Golden pup on my own initiative and training it myself. Currently the waiting list for the pup through ASDEC is a lot longer than i was originally told... i could be looking at another year to two years before i receive my service dog... I have been volunteering long enough I am confident I could train my own dog within that time frame, and get the bonding experience from birth forward... do you know any REPUTABLE, honest, and trustworthy breeders in the CA area? Yes, I know I could adopt- I am VERY Pro-adoption, however I am looking for a pup that has a clean bill of health and an extensive family history with one- I am trying to lessen the health issues that can come from kennels and rescues as this will not just be a pet for me, this dog needs to be able to work for a long period of time! If you know of any good breeders please message me (absolutely NO puppy-mills or any puppy-mill conditions, I need to be able to meet the parents and feel comfortable with their care.)

@jaxson_thegolden - if you’re willing to reach out to a Canadian breeder, perhaps follow up with Jaxson’s owner?

@chronically.tabi

Owner training is the best!

@chronically.tabi

You go girl!

@hunter_at_your_service

@levi_atyourservice thank you thank you!!! @goingforgolden Leah!!!!! Here ya go. I would go there next time if I could... thanks @levi_atyourservice

@leviatyourservice

@hunter_at_your_service @goingforgolden We recommend Lakewood Goldens in central Florida. Healthy dogs, pleasant humans.

@hunter_at_your_service

@goingforgolden seriously!!! Message @helper_dog_harlow @outrageously_helpful_orion @kono_in_orlando @levi_atyourservice there is a great breeder of SDs down there! Hope things work out.

@goingforgolden

@hunter_at_your_service im even willing to travel to Florida! Really weighing my options to get what I need.

@hunter_at_your_service

@goldenservicedog oh no! I’m so sorry! Should have messaged you first! Thank you for responding!!! Any others you know if? I can’t recommend our either. Only one I can think of is in Florida where Harlow and Kono came from. Ugh. 😕

@goldenservicedog

@hunter_at_your_service I wouldn’t go to Golden Meadows. ☹️

@hunter_at_your_service

Leah @goingforgolden we found ourselves in the same dilemma after 30 years of Rescue work. I would suggest talking w @goldenservicedog Luca’s mom about Golden Meadows Retrievers. Several SDs we know are from there. We got Hunter from Shadalane Ranch in Vista but there are a few issues we had. Luca is a beautiful healthy great dog.

@sassysteph_mixta_beebe

Best wishes with your decision 😘
