Buyers are encouraged to read ACQUIRING A GOLDEN RETRIEVER, as found on the grca.org web-site, for general information about obtaining a puppy, to take as much time as necessary to locate a reputable breeder from whom they feel comfortable purchasing a puppy, and to investigate breeders and their puppies thoroughly before committing to a purchase.
Many reputable Goldendoodle puppy breeders rightly condemn the deplorable practices of puppy mills but have 14-18 dogs themselves. When a website lists multiple Doodle “moms” and several Doodle “dads,” you need to ask yourself if these Goldendoodles are really treated as pets.
