|At Seasons Gold Golden retrievers, we strive to breed the healthiest and best natured golden puppies possible. We have an 11 acre horse
farm for the dogs to romp on. All of our golden retrievers come from top Champion lines and generations of health clearances. Our
Golden Retriever puppies' parents are checked by OFA for hip, heart, and elbow problems before breeding them. Also, they are screened
by CERF or OFA for eye problems. I also do not keep and breed dogs with skin allergies or chronic ear problems. I have seen over the
years, that those issues seem to be associated with certain golden retriever bloodlines and are therefore hereditary. Any dogs that have
any known hereditary problems, are spayed and neutered and placed in pet homes. Any responsible breeder should do this to improve
future generations of the breed. With all the unwanted pets in the shelters, there is no reason to breed more dogs unless it is done in a
conscientious, responsible way to improve the dog's chances of having a happy healthy life. Imagine what could happen to the breed in
just 10 years, if all breeders committed to doing this! Many do! I feel that golden retriever breeders, in general, have maintain fairly high
standards, compared to some of the other less popular breeds. Thus in general, are strenghthening our breed's health and temperments.
:) On the other hand, we are not God, and can not control everything about the genetics of the puppies. Starting with healthy parents
(grandparents, etc....) takes much of the gamble out of it. Dogs deserve to be as healthy as we can help them to be. Starting with good
breeding, lightens the load for your vet.
We have been raising golden retrievers since 1990. Our golden Retrievers are full time for me. I used to be a high school art teacher but
enjoy devoting 24 hours a day to them now. We welcome visitors. Call and set up a time to come meet our canine friends.
