A Responsible Breeder

Just what is a responsible breeder of purebred dogs and why are they so special? Just what is it that sets such a person apart from any other breeder and why should they be sought out by anyone looking to purchase a puppy?

The American Kennel Club (AKC), as well as the Golden Retriever Club of America (GRCA), strongly recommend buying from a responsible breeder. Both have numerous resources to share with potential buyers to help them do their homework before buying a dog, to help them decide whether a Golden Retriever is the dog for them, or help them choose a breed compatible with their lifestyle and to help them find a responsible breeder. AKC encourages potential buyers to contact its Customer Service Department in North Carolina at 919-233-9767. You may also peruse their websites for further information and find a responsible breeder in your area:
