Due to COVID-19 we are not allowing any visitors at this time.
Thank you for your interest in our Golden Retriever puppies!
First step for all potential puppy clients is to complete our Puppy Questionnaire form (click on the blue button below). If you are interested in one of our puppies, If we don't have puppies available, once we receive your application, you will be placed on our wait list for a future litter. Once we have puppies available, we will go back through our wait list first before opening the reservation list up to the public.
Please be aware however, we do have a very long wait list currently and with only 1-2 litters a year typically, there is a high likelihood that it could be a year or more before we may have a puppy become available. Our litters are usually reserved well in advanced of the puppies being born, so if you have the time to wait then please feel free to fill out an application. If you are looking for a puppy immediately, then we are probably not the breeder for you as we rarely ever have puppies available after birth unless we have an exceptionally large litter or some sort of unusual circumstances come up with our people who already placed a deposit.
Second step, once we know we are expecting, we will contact people on our wait list to place a deposit. We will take deposits for 4 males and 4 female reservations spots. We feel confident doing this as the average number of puppies in a litter is 8 and we usually have a pretty balanced number of males and females. However there are zero guarantees on litter size as well as sex ratio and we will offer a refund and/or transfer to a future litter in the case that there are not enough puppies or desired and reserved sex is not available on any given litter.
Once you are notified of an available reservation, you will be required to place a deposit in the amount $500.00 to confirm your reservation. We will also send you a copy of our Puppy Purchase Agreement for you to sign. For the deposit, we accept Venmo, Zelle or certain local Alaska bank-to-bank transfers. All deposits are non-refundable (with the exception mentioned above). Our puppies start at $2,500 depending on the breeding pair. Deposits paid on a reservation go towards that price.
Third step, is to start getting ready to welcome your new puppy into your home!
There are some additional documents that we will need from you and that you will want to download and print out to help you get ready for your new puppy!
1. New Owner Information Sheet
Please click here to complete this online form (under the Forms & Misc tab - Puppy Application & Forms) no later than 1 week prior to pick up or shipping of your puppy.
2. New Puppy Checklist
To help you remember all of those little things needed to help make the transition
of your puppy into his new home that much easier! Click below to download this and other useful documents.
Fourth, Final and FUN step , will be scheduling your puppy pick visit around 7 weeks of age! We will contact all confirmed reservations and schedule individual times for you to come out and meet the puppies and choose which puppy ultimately will be going home with you around 8-9 weeks of age.
All appointments/picks will be done in the order of how the deposits were placed. So 1st pick male; will be first, 2nd pick male; will be second and so on. Same goes for the females.
At this time, please be prepared to pay for the balance owed on your puppy; which can be done ahead of time by using Venmo, Zelle or by bringing cash with you to your scheduled visit. Sorry, but we do not accept personal checks.
