PLEASE READ BELOW ON ACQUIRING A PUPPY FROM ME
Sunkyst Golden Retrievers is proud of all the litters produced here. All pet puppies are sold on a spay/neuter contract and limited registration. This means they are not sold to be bred. I'm a firm believer that we are spaying/neutering our puppies way too early, which presents many orthopedic problems and some cancers later on. UC Davis in CA, has done extensive studies to verify this. That being said, female puppies from my litters, are to be spayed no sooner than 18 months of age, and after their first heat cycle, and males are to be neutered at 2 years of age, when the growth plates are closed. Two years of age for both males and females is my preference. If you contact me for a puppy, I will contact your current vet regarding their protocol on spaying/neutering and if they believe in doing this at 6 months of age, you will need to be proactive and abide by my protocol, in order to get a puppy. If you feel you will abide by your vets protocol and not by my contract, unfortunately I can't place a puppy in your home. I stand firm on this, since health is very important to me. Puppies are required per my contract, to continue both NuVet Plus and Probiotic Max for life and Phyto Flex for first 2 years of life.
I do choose the puppy for each family. I don't choose the gender, but the puppy from the sex you have chosen, as to the best fitting for each family. I am with these puppy's 24/7 and know them better than anyone. This method has worked extremely well for me.
A fenced in yard is a requirement for one of my puppies. I don't believe in invisible fences and will not approve a home with one. I also don't sell to those who live in apartments or condos where there is a common area for all animals who live there to potty and exercise in. Puppies are immune compromised and can pick up parasites, bacteria and diseases very easily through their pads due to only having 1 puppy shot when they leave here, so that being said, living in a home with common grounds for all who live there is not suitable for an 8 week old puppy. This is the sole reason why I don't approve these homes, not because of living space. I don't deal with brokers, so please don't contact me. If you have small children, your time and energy will be spent keeping up with them, and unfortunately puppies require the same attention, so I do have an age limit. I realize puppies and children are a wonderful combination, but small children don't understand the concept of razor sharp puppy teeth and become fearful of the puppy. Your youngest child would need to be older than 3 years of age.
DCM (Dilated Cardiomyopathy) is a fatal heart disease that has become a food associated disease. Grain Free foods are not what they're cracked up to be and could cause more harm than good. WSAVA has certain food approval criteria and there are only 5 that meet these standards. Eukanuba, Royal Canin, Iams, Science Diet and Purina. I feed Purina Pro Plan Sport All Life Stage 30/20 chicken formula to all my puppies and adults and all puppies/adults that leave me, will be required to be fed this food for life. No jumping from food to food, for this will in turn cause GI intolerance.
We are over vaccinating our dogs, therefore I have a protocol for this. I will also review this info during my detailed phone interview. Because both humans and animals develop immunity and antibodies from being vaccinated against certain diseases, my protocol involves obtaining titers to detect this, which is a simple blood test. If in fact the dog is determined to have established antibodies for parvo/distemper, they will not require this vaccine, because immunity is established. Why continue to give something over and over that they have already established antibodies (immunity) for these diseases. I believe that by over stressing the body with excessive vaccines, we are contributing to both cancer and autoimmune disease. We already have health issues in this breed, including cancer and autoimmune disease, so my philosophy is to keep my puppies and dogs as healthy as possible to prevent these dreaded diseases. Since everything involving my dogs has gone up in price, from food, vet bills and stud fees, I have had to increase my puppy price because of this. My pet puppies and show puppies are $3000. Pet puppies are sold on limited registration and spay/neuter contract.
If purchasing a show puppy, every attempt to obtain their Champion title must be made. This is a very political venue, so hiring a professional handler may need to occur. Show puppies are $3000 and sold on full registration.
If you feel you fit within my guidelines and are accepting of my terms, please send me an email to reflect this. I will need to schedule a phone interview in order to determine placement on my puppy list. An interview does not guarantee a spot on my list. I schedule my interviews between 10 am and noon and 1:30 pm and 3 pm and they generally last an hour, give or take. Please let me know what day(s) and time(s) work for you in your email and will schedule accordingly.
Thank you for taking the time to read all of this very important information. I have been a quality breeder since 1989 and take what I do very seriously.
