REDTAIL Golden Retrievers

Puppy Inquiry

Redtail Golden Retrievers

The GRCA provides puppy referral as a convenience to puppy buyers to find out about breeders who are GRCA members and their litters. GRCA takes no responsibility whatsoever for any puppies/dogs that you may acquire through GRCA puppy referral. GRCA is not responsible for any breeder’s sale practices and sales contracts, nor will GRCA be involved in any manner in contract disputes between puppy buyers and breeders. Availability of puppies and conditions of sale are at the sole discretion of the individual breeder. Buyers are encouraged to read ACQUIRING A GOLDEN RETRIEVER, as found on the website, for general information about obtaining a puppy, to take as much time as necessary to locate a reputable breeder from whom they feel comfortable purchasing a puppy, and to investigate breeders and their puppies thoroughly before committing to a purchase. You are not obligated to purchase a puppy from the breeders whose names you obtain from GRCA puppy referral.

Thank you for your interest in our golden retriever puppies. Not every type of dog is a match for every type of home. Our primary focus is a working dog.

Here is the link of questions we ask prospective puppy owners.

Even if we talk by phone, this questionnaire must be completed to be considered for a puppy.

Applications for working golden homes only. Hunting - SAR - Performance


Please note that we've always had a lot of inquires, but since the COVID19 pandemic, we have been overwhelmed with applications. This has caused a significant delay in our ability to respond quickly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Our puppy plans:
       We are currently screening for a few open slots for litters going home in March 2021.


A few things you should know about our breeding program:

We've been raising Golden Retrievers since 1986. We strive for genetic diversity, sound health, agreeable temperament, intelligence, biddability, a good nose, desire to please, and hunt drive. Prior to breeding, our parent dogs are screened for hip, elbow, eye, and cardiac disease. We also take advantage of DNA screening for genetic disorders known to affect the Golden Retriever.


Our puppies are raised with a full-time care provider. Our puppies receive early neurological stimulation, early scent introduction and exposure to a variety of life experiences including children, cats, game birds, and swimming (weather permitting).


Our puppies are dewormed, microchipped, receive age-appropriate vaccinations based on maternal antibodies, and a full veterinary examination. Puppy owners receive lifetime registration in AKC Reunite microchip recovery service and lifetime breeder support. Puppy owners receive exclusive access to our Facebook Redtail Golden Owners group. Health warranty details are included in the contract which is sent for review later in the process.


Our puppies are not sold sight unseen. We don’t ship puppies under any circumstance. Most owners fly into Sacramento (SMF) and fly home with their new family member in the cabin. This airport is 2½ hours from our place. Others drive depending on the distance. The farthest someone has flown to pick up a pup over the years is from Austria.


We realize that the current situation with COVID19 is keeping people closer to home. We are located in Anderson, CA if you would like to calculate drive time. We follow strict bio-security protocols on all puppy interactions.


We are Members of the Golden Retriever Club of America, an AKC Breeder of Merit Participant, part of the AKC Bred with H.E.A.R.T. Program, and an Avidog Puppy rearing associate. We actively participate in continuing breeder education, keeping up to date on the latest science in puppy rearing.

As enthusiasts for the hunting Golden Retriever, we are dedicated to raising quality puppies.

We look forward to getting to know more about your search for a golden puppy. Not every type of dog is a match for every type of home. If we don’t believe we can accommodate your needs for a puppy, we’re happy to refer you to another quality breeder who raises golden retriever puppies as we do.
