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.
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.
“Jessie has settled in very nicely. She’s a very sweet puppy. She hasn’t gotten into any trouble. She is curious about the cockatiels and loves to chase the fish in the fish tank. She LOVES my pond. That was the first thing she saw in the yard.”
“We are nuts over this dog. She is everything you could ask from a Golden Retriever. Not that I’m prejudiced, but I think she is the most gorgeous dog I’ve ever seen. The cowlick is so cute! She adds so much to our lives. She really did turn out to be an Easter angel.”
“I just wanted to thank you. Jasper is absolutely beautiful and has a wonderful personality. He has brought so much joy into my life. He is spoiled rotten. He stays inside and has lots of toys. He loves to go swimming in the bay and chase the cat around the house.”
“Our new puppy Ripkin (named after Cal Ripkin from the Baltimore Orioles) is absolutely beautiful and so smart. He is just amazing. The kids are having a blast and he completes our home.”
Sally and Tallulah will be 8 and 7 in February. Sally is loved by all who know her – you gave us a VERY special pup.
Puppy Health Guarantee
Each puppy is examined by the vet just a few days after birth. Each puppy is then wormed at every other week starting at two weeks old. At six weeks of age we take them to our vet for their first puppy shots. You will receive a record of all worming and shots given to your puppy at the time of pick up.
