In order to be put on the waiting list a COMPLETED PUPPY FORM must be sent to us, once received we will go over it and contact you within a few days by phone or email. The puppy form is located below but please take the time and read the entire page.
We here at Pacificgold make the final decision on which home each of the puppies will be placed into when leaving to his or hers new home, it is a decision made on matching the right puppy up with the right home with regards to his or hers temperament and personality and how the new owners lifestyle will fit that individual puppy’s personality. Therefor there is no such thing as the last pick puppy or first pick puppy. 🙂 We encourage the new puppy owners to come for visits once the puppies are 4 or 5 weeks old and we will listen to your input on which puppies you like but please remember WE still will make the final decision on where each puppy will be placed.
We only place our puppies in to family/companion homes and no longer place any into show or breeding homes. We still have the same quality of dogs we have been breeding over the past 35+ years with the breed temperament, structure and type still our main goal. It is just a choice we have made over the past few years to concentrating placing our puppies into family homes where they can be part of the family, in the home and be able to go to so many places with their new families.
We require a fully fenced in yard or a secure run to house them in when they are out side with or without supervision, they must never be allowed to run loose at anytime. They must be part of the family and be allow in the house to have the human contact that they so desire. I do not sell to homes where they are looking for a dog that is going to be living outside only. Golden’s love to be with people. If you are worried about shedding and hair around the home please then do not buy a golden retriever….they do shed and require regular grooming.
Once we have had the opportunity to talk to potential new puppy owners either by phone or in person we will ask you to fill out our puppy questionnaire if you have not already done so and send back to us. After we have received it we will contact you and let you know if you are a good match for one of our puppies then your name will put on our puppy list for our current / upcoming litter.. If you are still interested we will require a deposit of $500.00 once the puppies are born to show us that you are serious about a new puppy on joining your family.
A completed puppy form and deposit does not guarantee a puppy from the current litter, unfortunately things happen sometimes beyond our control, if a puppy in the current litter for what ever reason becomes unavailable your deposit for that litter will be returned immediately.
Once the puppies are born – we will not hold a puppy with out the puppy form and deposit.
We also require that if you live within BC that you make at least one visit to meet the puppies and us prior to the puppy heading off to his or hers new home. We realize that if you live out of the province this is not always possible so when the day comes to pick up your new puppy we will want to spend at least a few hours visiting and getting to know you and you us and talking about your new puppy so please allow for this. We need to feel that you have made the right decision and have the time to spend raising your new puppy after all this is a life long commitment.
The deposit will be returned to you only if there is not a puppy available out of the current litter that you have the deposit on otherwise it is non-refundable.
Thank you for the interest in one of our puppies, if you require any more information please feel free to call us.
