We are expecting a beautiful litter of English Golden Retriever puppies around April 23. Ultrasound indicated a large litter. We have also recently bred a second litter which should be born around the time the first one is starting to leave us. This second litter is due on June 9. We also have tentative plans for a litter that would be ready for new homes in the fall. Scroll down for more information.
Molly has been bred to Luke and pregnancy of a large litter has been confirmed by ultrasound.
Puppies will be due around April 23 (plus or minus two days). If born on their due date, puppy
Puppies started in training will be ready for pick up when puppies are between 10 and 11 weeks of age. This will probably start around July 2.
Our policy is to reserve 3 puppies per sex per litter. If anyone wants to reserve after that, we offer a backup list. We have currently reserved all 6 of our normal reservations and have gone to a back-up list. Those on our back up list who are flexible about the litter have the option of being placed on our Tara/Luke litter list as well.
Tara has been bred to Luke with puppies due around June 7. Untrained puppies will be ready for new homes starting around August 1. Puppies started in training will be ready for new homes starting around August 17. We’ve just announced this litter late on April 7. We are still firming up our list. There are definite reservations for 2 puppies for each sex on this litter. We are holding the third positions for each sex open for a short time. These will be offered first to those on our Molly/Luke overflow list in case Molly doesn’t have enough puppies of one sex or the other. There will probably be availability on this list. Check back after Molly’s litter is born around April 23.
Details on Both Litters
If you want a start in training for your puppy, see our Focused Puppy Training Program page for more information on the training provided. To really appreciate our training, see our 10 Week Videos page where you can find links to several of our past 10-week old puppies in training. This page also has a link to our You Tube channel where you can see dozens of our puppies in videos. Karen is a very competitive trainer in the AKC obedience ring. Her accomplishments are discussed on our training page. There is also a link to a video of her at an AKC obedience trial in the Open obedience ring as well as the Utility Obedience Ring. These videos demonstrate Karen and our Jack doing the most advanced AKC obedience exercises.
See our puppy questionnaire for details of puppy prices both with and without training.
Late Summer/Early Fall Litter
Depending on when she comes in season, there is a possibility of us breeding Piper to Luke. We would guess that Piper will come in season in mid to late May with puppies born in July and ready for new homes in September. Because we have so many families interested in our training program, we will not breed Piper if the training period for her litter overlaps with training Tara’s puppies. If bred, we will announce this litter around April 20 when we know for sure that her puppies won’t be born too close to Tara’s.
