What is the difference between ‘limited’ registration and ‘full’ registration?
Limited Registration means that the dog is registered but no litters produced by that dog are eligible for registration. A dog registered with an AKC Limited Registration shall be ineligible to be entered in a breed competition in a licensed or member dog show. It is eligible, however, to be entered in any other licensed or member event. These events include: Obedience, Tracking, Field Trials, Hunting Tests, Herding, Lure Coursing, Agility and Earthdog.
Breeding is a very complicated and serious decision. So many people have decided to breed dogs because of the financial benefits. An ethical breeder does not breed to make income – they breed to advance only the healthiest Goldens to the happiest homes.
Can we come and visit your dogs and see your facility?
YES! This is a very commonly asked question that is asked of breeders. The answers that are given by other breeders quite frankly are shocking. Many breeders refuse for you to visit their kennel until the pups are 6 weeks old. By that time the buyer has already committed emotionally and financially to that breeder. We understand that parvo and other diseases are a very serious threat.
On the other hand, simple precautions can be made to eliminate the threat. We ask that if you choose to visit Golden Touch of Cream Kennels please do not visit another kennel beforehand. Also, please try to stay away from any unfamiliar dog just in case they have any diseases. Many breeders hide behind trying to protect their dogs from hiding their facilities. Golden Retriever Club of America recommends that you find a breeder who has nothing to hide and is actually desirous of meeting with you.
What is the earliest we can pick up our puppy?
We ask that you wait to take your puppy home till it is at least 6 weeks old. We feel puppies need their mother’s nourishment for this long to help ensure a healthy future.
How much do your Goldens cost?
Buying a dog should never be like buying a vehicle. The decision on what dog you will have for 10-15 years should NEVER be based on price alone. We are committed to providing families with a loving family member for years to come. The price for an American Golden puppy is typically $1000. The price for a 100% English Cream puppy is typically $1500.
