As a prerequisite to breeding any of our goldens, we implement genetic testing & screen for hips, elbows, heart, and eyes on each of the sire and dam. It is important to us, as it is a by-law to the Golden Retriever Club of America, that any breeding dog or bitch has actual OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) certificates, which can only be certified to those beyond 24 months of age, for hips and elbows. Genetic testing may not be a requirement to the GRCA.
Puppies will have been dewormed, (in some cases have had their dew claws removed), and vaccinated by NeoPar & NeoVac vaccines, They will also have a 5-way vaccination prior to going home. We provide a vet health checkup at 8 weeks, testing for any worms, parasites, or bacteries. Puppies' immune systems are vulnebale, and can contract worms, parasites, and bacteria from playing in dirt. However, it can be treated with simple dewormers and medication. It is important to know that we love to handle our puppies to socialize, provide stimulation, training, and a variety of environmental exposure for complete mental stability.
At Shadalane, we strive to campaign our goldens toward Championship, CGC, and Obedience titles. However, not all of our goldens are able to attain those titles. When breeding, we take in consideration of the pedigrees, the lineage of its champions, health factors in a pedigree, and temperament. Our purpose in breeding is to improve the breed in structure (for shows), health, longevity, and temperament. We have had to eliminate several dogs and bitches from our breeding program, yet keep them as our pets. As it stands, we are limited in what we have to breed because we only want to breed the best that we can. If you are able to get a puppy from us, know that it is with the intention of breeding for the love of it.

"We Stand behind our puppies" - We provide genetic testing on our breeding pairs of sires and dams, which include screenings on hips, elbows, heart, and eyes. This does not promise that every single puppy we breed will be free of any genetic issue. We do the best that we can to eliminate any issues that we know through testing and pedigree analysis. However, we do stand behind our puppies and our name to provide a full refund and support for genuine situations.
Please be sure to fill out our Questionnaire, located to your left. Your information can only help to match you with the right puppy
