Why is Amazing Goldens different than other breeders?
Here at Amazing Goldens we can promise your puppy will be loved, snuggled, and cared for with the best of care. In addition to breeding the best possible lines, imported from all over the world, we LOVE the puppies. All of our adult dogs are on a high performance dog food, get plenty of exercise on the farm, and lots of love which in return helps to make very healthy puppies.
Proper nutrition when the puppies are first born is very important. It is a very high priority to us to insure that our puppies receive the proper nutrition they need to grow and be the best they can. We rotate our puppies several times a day to insure all the puppies get the proper nourishment they need while nursing. At three weeks we will soften a high quality puppy food and introduce probiotics. We nurse our puppies until 7 WEEKS and then transition them over to a solid puppy food so when they join your family they are completely transitioned over to solid food.
We pride ourselves in providing each of our puppies with the best possible care, strong pedigrees with many champion show lines, health checking all of our dogs. two year health guarantee, and loving them and then loving them some more!
Do you have a warranty?
Yes we offer a two year health warranty on hips, elbows and eyes... as well as a lifelong support ad friendship!
What type of training does Amazing Goldens offer?
It all starts at the very moment they are born. We start Early Neurological stimulation. There are five points we work on from the the beginning.
By doing these at an early age it provides some amazing benefits. Improved cardio vascular, stronger heart beat, stronger adrenal glands, tolerance to stress, and a great resistance to disease. We continue these exercises until day 16. Starting on day seventeen we start with introducing them to several different elements. We focus on Sensory, emotional and social skills. We call it the Amazing Goldens twelve step puppy program. We expose them to different sounds, sights, smells, textures, and people. Twelve different textures, different people and so on. Excellent socialization is what helps our puppies to be able to be trained to do many different things. From being a great family dog to doing service work, and therapy work at hospitals and schools.
Secondly we work on basic commands. Such as chewing on the appropriate things, as well as learning to sit before praise is given. We introduce create training. They each have their individual crates and spend a small amount of time in them each day. This helps them to be able to make the transition much easier. We also have many resources that come highly recommended in helping to train your puppy.
How does Amazing Goldens help me pick out the right puppy for me?
It starts at the very beginning. We get to know each puppy and their personalities very well: from the very beginning of helping them nurse, to the first time they eat puppy food. We are there every step of the way to watch, play and observe. We place soft, colored collars on them at a young age. We then start watching and following their personalities...more active, more laid back, likes to be more in charge, loves to snuggle, etc. All those traits are observed and noted on each puppy. We are then able to suggest certain puppies depending on what your end goal and personal preferences.
Amazing Golden's will send your puppy home with the best sensory, emotional and social skills to make your training with your new puppy a success. We have many different options available to help with the training for your newest family member. Here are a few options we offer.
1. Home visits. Depending on your need we can come once a week to a couple days a week and work on the training needs you may have. The training process is explained, and carried out with your puppy. A list of items for you to work on until the next visit is made.
2. Train and board. If you would like your new best friend potty trained, crate trained , and simple commands mastered we can do that for you before your new puppy joins your family.
We are happy to help in anyway we can and make a specialized training programs that fits your needs.
What veterinarian care has my puppy received?
At Amazing Goldens we take a lot of pride in providing the best start we possibly can for our puppies. We take our puppies to the vet at 3-5 days old to receive their first veterinarian check up and remove their dewclaws. Our puppies are then de-wormed at 3 weeks and then again at 5 weeks. At an early age we also introduce probiotics. The puppies will then go for a second veterinarian exam at 7 weeks and receive their first set of shots and another de-worming.

Our favorite puppy pads are called FuzzPaw. You can purchase them in many different sizes. They are washable, safe and very absorbent. You can purchase them from us before you come and pick up your puppy. You are welcome to use the puppy food of your choice but we recommend the Nature's Domain Puppy Food.
