Looking for Golden Retriever pup-IN, MI, OH
 
Thought that maybe someone here would have info. to share.

My dd is looking for a breeder in the midwest, NE Indiana would be ideal!, but willing to travel, MI, OH or IL areas.

She has always wanted a GSD, but after watching me with my GSD the past year, she realizes that it is probably not the best choice for her right now.

We have had Goldens in the past (from BYB types & want to avoid that this time) and a golden really would be a much better fit for her.

Thanks!

I want to add that it is great that she took her time to observe before she decided a GSD would not be a good fit. Many just get the dog and then realize this, and it's a disaster.

A friend of mine has a litter of field bred retrievers( Kalamazoo, MI area). They are two weeks old right now. She competes with hers in competitive obedience, hunt tests.
She isn't a big breeder, this is her second and final litter with her bitch Torch. Torch is a great dog!
PM me if you want Marcia's contact information.

what are you doing with your GSD to make someone think a GSD
isn't for them? GSD's are so easy, so easy to train.

Goldens are not necessarily easier then GSD's. My first golden was easy all the way around, the second one not so much. He has more energy and is more challenging then both of the GSD's put together. Maybe an older rescue that you can see what they are like? Or even an older one from the breeder?

Nothing I (or my dog) is doing has changed my daughters mind about wanting a GSD SOMEDAY.

When she does get a GSD, she wants a high drive working dog to compete with. She just sees how much time and energy it takes and is not ready to take that on yet.

Right now she feels that a golden may fit her life better, nothing wrong with that.

there's a good chance we're getting a Golden in the near future.
i don't think it will take less energy or less time to properly raise
a Golden compared to a GSD.

You will enjoy having a golden. I think they do extremely well with GSD's. And I agree that you put just as much time and energy into a golden as a GSD, in my case, more time.
