Our dogs are health screened including hips, elbows, heart and eyes, as well as having the newer genetic testing done for NCL, prcd-PRA, PRA-1 and Ichthyosis. Find out more about goldens and health information at Golden Retriever Club of America. These are recessive genes, meaning they have to have one from each parent to be affected. Our puppies are guaranteed to be either clear or carriers, meaning they are not affected by these disorders.
All golden puppies are sold with a limited registration, which does not limit participating in AKC events except conformation. We are able to change the registration status to full at no further cost once OFA hips, elbows, heart and eye clearances are completed.
The Morris Animal Foundation has enrolled 3,000 goldens to be part of the most groundbreaking study ever undertaken to improve the lives of dogs. Morris Animal Foundation’s Golden Retriever Lifetime Study tracks volunteer dogs’ health for life in order to gain insights into preventing and treating cancer and other canine diseases. Thank you to those who have entered their puppies in this important study.
