ABOUT OUR PUPPIES
We are hands-on with all of our puppies throughout their first 8 weeks of life. This is such a crucial time for their development to become the best of the Golden Retriever breed. We follow The Rule of Sevens. We strive to provide all of the steps of Early Neurological Stimulation.

Each puppy will be vet checked and vaccinated. Puppies will also have completed their first worming schedule. We offer a 1 year health guarantee and lifetime support to the owners. We guarantee our puppies are 100% healthy before we place them with their forever family. Puppy pick day will be at 6-7 weeks of age. Puppies will go home at 8 weeks with an AKC limited registration packet, a blanket that smells like momma and a starter bag of food.
