Puppy Selection

Naturally, our new puppy owners are anxious to know which puppy is theirs. At week 6, individual videos will be taken of each puppy for selection purposes. The person with first pick boy will look at all videos of the boys and determine which one they would like (same process for girl picks). After their selection, the videos of the remaining boy puppies will be sent to the person with second pick and so on. If any puppy owner is not happy with their selection, we will gladly refund their deposit. Our goal is completely satisfied/elated puppy owners.

On-site visits

Most of our new puppy owners make their selection by photos and phone conversations. We do our best to match what you are looking for in a puppy during the selection process. Occasionally, an on-site visit is requested. We welcome this, but take necessary precautions to protect the health of the puppies. For specific details, contact us by phone or e-mail.

First pick puppies

We reserve the right to retain first pick puppy (girl or boy) from any given litter. Typically, the first pick girl and boy are set aside for show homes.

Picking up your puppy

  1. Your puppy will be ready to go home once he/she turns 8 weeks of age. We typically arrange pick-up on the first Sunday afternoon after your puppy has turned 8 weeks. Alternate arrangements can be made if needed to fit your schedule.
  2. If you need to wait until after the designated pick up day to get your puppy, arrangements can be made. However, full payment will be required and there may be a nominal additional fee.
  3. Please bring a crate to take your puppy home in.
  4. We will provide enough puppy food for two days for you to take home with you. You can begin to mix this with the food you intent to use for your puppy. Please see our “How to Raise a Golden” page to learn about our recommendations.

Flying your puppy

Please contact us directly regarding flying a puppy at info@lakecountrygoldens.com.

Payment Options

There are a number of methods by which you can pay for your puppy.
1. You can bring cash or a bank check when you pick up your puppy.
2. You can mail a personal check to arrive at least one week ahead of time (so there is time for it to clear the bank).
3. You can send the money to us as “Friends or Family” on Paypal.
