First of all, our English Cream Golden Retrievers have some of the best pedigrees in the world.
All of our Goldens have been imported from only the best European Golden Retriever breeders. If you study our dogs‘ pedigrees you will see multiple World, International and National champions. Also, many of our own dogs are International champions which is very rare in the US. Even if you are not planning on showing your Golden, it is still very beneficial to get a puppy from highly pedigreed parents.
To become successful in the show ring, not only do you need to have beautiful Goldens that conform to the Kennel Club standards, but you also need a very intelligent and super sweet temperament. When you get past the basic champion, judges look for a Golden that is highly trained and shows off the incredible sweet, calm and loving temperament of the Golden Retriever.
Our dogs’ parents and parents’ parents have all been hip, elbow, eye and heart tested. They are expensive but necessary tests to determine if the parents have any health issues that are common among Golden Retrievers. All of our English Cream Golden Retrievers have received their BVA or OFA hip & elbow clearance to breed.
Also, each English Cream Golden Retriever is tested annually by a canine ophthalmologist to renew their eye certification (CERF), and has seen a canine cardiologist/veterinarian to gain OFA heart clearance. We also provide up to a lifetime warranty & 1 month of free pet insurance at no charge for each puppy. Please see our Warranty page for more details.
Secondly, we ensure your puppy’s good health.
It starts before your puppy is ever conceived by providing proper diet, exercise and preventative healthcare to the parents. Throughout the pregnancy, the dam is monitored closely to be sure she and the puppies are progressing well. In addition to this she is provided with NuVet and exercise.
We are present to assist with every birth during whelping, and take every pain to make sure each puppy comes through the critical first twenty-four hours in good health.
By the time each English Cream Golden Retriever puppy leaves us, it will have had its first vaccination (the “puppy shot,” which is Duramune Max 5, the vaccine for coronavirus, parvovirus, distemper, parainfluenza, adenovirus type 2 (and hepatitis) plus four leptos), 4 dewormings, coccidia treatment with Marquis and micro-chipping.
We give every puppy a final check up from the veterinarian in which they are given a fecal, heart and full body examination. If they pass they are given an official Interstate Health Certificate.
Thirdly, we employ every possible measure to form good emotional health in each English Cream Golden Retriever puppy.
We consider each of our dogs a member of the family, and that is how we treat them. From day one, the English Cream Golden Retriever puppies are in our home, being handled, played with and loved on every single day. Someone is with them the majority of the time, making sure they are well cared for and interacting with them throughout the day.
We are very unique in that we crate-train each puppy and partially potty train every puppy. We also have a very thorough extended training program called the Puppy Training Institute which offers puppy training from 6 weeks to 6 months of age. By the time a puppy graduates from the Puppy Training Institute, it is potty trained, crate trained, leash trained, stair trained, car trained, extensively socialized and knows the foundational commands of “sit,” “stay,” “down,” “come,” “off,” “place,” and more.
The English Cream Golden Retriever is one of the most delightful breeds we have ever encountered. However, as with any breed, if the puppies are not properly socialized, then problems such as excessive shyness, submissive urination (wetting when excited or fearful), and more are often the result.
Due to the number of puppies produced, owners and operators of large kennels and pet stores generally do not have the time to properly socialize the puppies, and as a result, those that purchase puppies from these places often face the challenge of dealing with these emotional issues.
Fourthly, the English Cream Golden Retriever puppy’s welfare is our top priority.
We are determined to pair our white Golden Retriever puppies with families that love them and are committed to the pups’ well-being. Since we demand so much from ourselves as breeders, we are passionate about our pups going home to only the best homes.
Our buyers are not looking for the cheapest English Cream Golden Retriever pup they can find. We only approve buyers that are seeking a companion for life and are committed to our English Cream Golden Retriever with their time, their money and their love.
Fifthly, we make every effort to make your experience of purchasing an English Cream Golden Retriever puppy a smooth and enjoyable process.
Our website was designed to be not only attractive but extremely helpful. We try to answer most of your questions on our FAQ page. We provide each buyer with a detailed report card which designates your individual pup’s current progress and gives advice on how to transition to your home.
We also provide each buyer with a NuVet starter kit, a training lead, a nutrition pack, thorough medical history paperwork and so much more. We believe that attention to every detail is important. We are very approachable and when our materials do not answer a question you might have, we are committed to answering all your questions and fully preparing you to bring home your new family member. Our goal at every point in the process is excellence. We are passionate about sharing this exquisite breed with others, and providing wonderful homes for our pups.
