I am very much interested in bringing home a Golden Retriever puppy,help?

Hi dog lovers I am Abhinav Sharma, 15 years of age and very much interested in bringing home a golden retriever puppy after my board exams. I have researched a lot about the dog breed and wanted to know if- 1. KCI registration assures that my puppy is healthy and is not suffering from any disease like hip displasia (very common), cardiac disease and other congenital diseases. If not then what would help me get that assurance? 2. I need some expert advice on how to ensure that my puppy is healthy. 3. I live in Faridabad and would like to know of good breeders in and around the city. Maybe in South Delhi too. Please help me because I love this breed and am very much willed to take care of it for years to come so I really want him to be healthy. Health of my new puppy is the major concern for me, nothing else,so, please do help by giving some EXPERT ADVICE.

Hi Abhinav,

Good to hear about your love for this great breed. Getting a dog into your family is a big responsibility and be sure you can spend time with and take care of it specially keeping in mind your schooling and studies as they will get tougher by the day. Also keep in mind that the dog will be dependable on you for then next 12 to 15 years. I am happy to hear that you want a healthy dog unlike some who just want a dog or a pup and not knowing about the problems that it may have if not checked properly.

Now getting to your questions:

1. KCI registered does not gaurantee anything. The best option will be to look for a good breeder who has been breeding these dogs for atleast 20 odd years or genuinely loves dogs and keeps them well. Go see the dogs at the kennel or at their house. Ask for people who he or she has given dogs to, so that you can check with them how their pups are doing and what they have grown up to be.

Good breeder also show their dogs and hence the dog show which is held in Noida, Delhi and Gurgaon will also be a good option to meet breeders. But be careful a person who shows dogs does not mean he or she is a good breeder, so once again do research about the breeder. Unfortunately the dog show season is ending. The closest show I can think of is being held at Chandigarh on this Sunday.

2. Regardless of the sweet talk some not so good breeders or other breeders who show dogs may do, ask them to allow you to show the pup to a vet. But the best option again is to find a good breeder with a name that he or she has built over time, so that you are sure about the quality and the final product that your dog will become when an adult. Talk to the Judges at the shows and they will be able to point you in the right direction.

All The Best!

U will need to do research see how long they have been breeding and/or showing dogs. Is dogs their business, if yes do not buy from them, unless really sure. The best option like I mentioned is speak to the dog show judges. Look up the KCI website and or call them and ask for the Delhi based Judges and people involved with dogs like Mr. Mukul Vaid etc and contact them for further information. Come on go on the net and do some reading on good and bad dog breeders. Nothing comes on a platter, you have to work for it if u r really interested.

yaar i m not saying that they r gud breeders or bad...... other thing is that it is not necessary whether u purchase from a breeders or some who has one or two dogs at home.....not for breeding purpose .....thing is that pup should be healthy n free frm any disease........if u r looking for show purpose then only u should go for gud pedigree line..........but normally these days people go for gud pedigree male for mating.......thses days very less people go for mating wid a average dog.....u can contact thses persons if u want to ....as they hve shown that puppies r registered or there parents r registered so it will not a problem for u to register ur dog.......in north india i know only one gud breeder who is breeding this breed for so many years in chandigarh...

I Researched the dog market for MORE THAN A YEAR!!!! And I bought my golden retriever puppy from a grand champion lineage ... after great research i settled down on Mr. Sanjay Desai who is in Pune. You can also check out the photo of my pup in my profile.. I am located in New Delhi...and the pup came by air from Pune. The breed is excellent and the quality of the pup is superb! Mr. Desai has more than 25 years of experience in dog breeding. You can contact me incase you need more information. Pulkit 9811011789.
