You MUST make sure your buying a from a good line. It'll be worth it if you have to spend more than $400. Goldens with bad genes WILL get hip dysplasia. Hip dysplasia means thousands of dollars and/or putting the dog down. Do the research up front, ask for references, it'll be worth in it the long run.

I think you'll have a hard time finding a well-bred pup for $400. Like Griggs mentioned, a bit more up front can definitely pay off in the long run.

I'm not saying that you can't get a good one for that much, just saying that generally, you'll tip the odds in your favor by buying from a better breeder.

I know of a great field bred golden liter with health clearances I own the Sire and he is Master Hunter and both dogs hunt hard. These puppies are a great price

Put your info in the Puppy Wanted Service and will send you info.

Try contacting David Oleson about upcoming litters. He is a newer hunting Golden Retriever breeder and I have one of his pups from 10/31/07. This dog was exceptional on pheasant this last season for it's first year. Great nose. This dog loves water too. My friend also got a pup and is very happy with it. No health problems. His price was reasonable and he was very professional.

He is doing it the right way IMO.

You can purchase a puppy wanted ad in the puppy for sale forum. I believe it is only $5.95 Breeders and FM members may then contact you and let you know about their pups and/or breeders.

This board is for hunting dog discussions. While we do allow some breeder info such as names and other general info about them to be shared, we do not allow links to them.

Good Luck in your search!

Ken

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
