WELCOME to the web site for DFW Golden Retriever Breeders.  We are a group of Golden Retriever Breeders in the Dallas - Fort Worth, Texas area who have joined together to help loving families locate well-bred, healthy, well-socialized Golden Retriever puppies to become part of their family.  Finding the right Golden puppy for your family can be a daunting task.  We hope to help you in your search. 

All breeders listed on this site are members in good standing of the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metro Golden Retriever Club and are members in good standing of the Golden Retriever Club of America.  All the breeders on this page are committed to not only placing their puppies and dogs in the right home, but to educating the puppy-buying public about the Golden Retriever.  This is a privately-owned web site and not under the authority or auspices of any organization. This site was created in the hope of educating you on how to pick a healthy, well-socialized puppy, what to look for in a reputable breeder, and how to find the perfect pet for your family.  Please also be aware that not all breeders who are members of the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metro Golden Retriever Club participate in this web site.  Participation in this website is at the discretion of the web site owner and the other breeders listed herein.

Whether or not you buy a Golden Retriever from one of our group, we hope to be able to educate you a little bit about what to look for and how to find it. Do yourself a favor and read the information on this site before you acquire a precious baby furface.  

The breeders on this site all participate in some type of competition with their dogs -- conformation (dog shows), Obedience, Hunt/Field, Agility, Tracking, etc.  They are serious about furthering the purpose of the Golden retriever. 

Most of the breeders listed on this site do not breed extensively.  Some of them don't breed until they have a waiting list of new homes.  They may not have a puppy available immediately.  Do not be in a hurry. If getting a Golden, any Golden, RIGHT NOW, is foremost in your plans, then you are not serious and will get what you ask for -- just any Golden. You should read books on the breed and even attend dog shows or obedience trials to talk to Golden owners and breeders and LEARN.

A Few Quick Things to Consider Before You Acquire a Golden...

  • The Golden Retriever is a people-oriented breed.  Golden Retrievers should not be relegated to the backyard.  Goldens who are not allowed to interact with their people can get bored, which causes problems -- digging, jumping the fence, tearing up landscape, chewing (the fence, the house, the garden hose, etc.)  If you are not prepared to let the Golden live with your family, please consider a different, more independent breed. 

  • Golden Retrievers shed.  There's no getting around it.  If you are not prepared to vacuum golden hair off the floor, your furniture, and your clothes, maybe you should consider a different breed. 

  • The Golden Retriever is subject to several health issues.  Consider this before you acquire one.  Your puppy's purchase price may be a smidgen of what you spend over its lifetime. Think ahead to 10-15 years of veterinary bills and the importance of choosing a puppy whose ancestors have been screened for common health issues which have a genetic basis.  Get more information about health issues here.

  • Remember: You are adding a new member to your family for the next 10-15 years. NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO BARGAIN HUNT!! Be prepare to spend $1000 to $1500 or more for a well-bred, healthy puppy.  The breeders listed on this site do not cut corners breeding and raising their puppies.  The expense in breeding dogs is extensive.  Reputable breeders do not breed for profit.  They generally breed to improve the breed and to acquire a puppy for themselves.  The old saying "You Get What You Pay For" is so very true when looking for a puppy. 

  • AKC registration simply means the sire and dam of your Golden Retriever are the same breed. It does NOT guarantee health, temperament, structural soundness, or breeding quality.
