Puppy Reservation Information 

Please read through the information provided on our website. We have attempted to answer many of the questions you may have as well as provide information about what it means to own a Golden Retreiver. Please contact us for additional information and to discuss what you are looking for.

If you are interested in purchasing one of our puppies we'd love to speak with you. All prospective puppy buyers will be interviewed prior to being added to our waiting list.  You may contact us by phone or email at 
bigskyegoldens@gmail.com.  After we have an opportunity to talk personally, you will be placed on our waiting list in the order in which you contacted us.  At that time we will provide a copy of our client questionnaire to complete. Our puppies are priced at $1,650.  We request that you provide $300.00 deposit to be put on a confirmed waiting list. 

 

How Puppies are Chosen:  Show quality puppies will be chosen first and their placement takes priority over the choosing of companion puppies. This is due primarily to the particular requirements for show puppies. Show quality puppies are ONLY placed in homes where we feel they will be shown. A very limited number of puppies are show puppies. As a general rule, we will work together to select which puppy goes to your home. We will do our best to ensure that your family brings home the puppy that best fits your requirements! If none of the puppies available are suitable for your needs, you may wait for the next litter or go to another breeder. We are always happy to make referrals to other reputable breeders.

Pet puppies are sold on an AKC limited registration.  For information on AKC limited registration please visit the AKC website.

We will try our very best to place a puppy with you from the litter in which you are interested, however, being put on the waiting list does not guarantee you will receive a puppy from a particular litter. There are simply too many variables involved in placing puppies to promise anyone a puppy from a certain litter (such as litter size, how many show puppies are in a litter, sex of the puppies available and so forth). In some cases, especially with small litters, companion puppies may not be available if all seem to be show quality. If a puppy is not available from the particular litter in which you are waiting, you have the option of waiting for the next litter.

Puppies usually will go home between 8 - 9 weeks depending a number of variables such as how they will be transported to their new homes, etc.  All puppies will have had complete veterinary checks and first vaccinations.
