What makes Summer's Goldens unique?

The Summer's Goldens Experience =
Excellent Health + Socialization

We love bringing joy through healthy, well-socialized AKC golden retriever puppies! We firmly believe that if you are going to do something in life, do it the right way and do it as best as you can. We view our puppies as extensions of our family. The adoption process is an opportunity to blend our family and yours, and we keep in touch with many of our puppies' families over the years. Our advanced health testing, cutting-edge socialization, and continual customer support provide the best experience possible for families who adopt our golden retrievers. We know purchasing a puppy is a huge decision in your life, and we invite you to join us. 

We believe in good health.  Many breeders focus on a "show" quality dog or a certain look. At Summer's Goldens, we focus on life-long family companions. While we carry many Champion bloodlines, we use careful genetic selection to lower the COI (Coefficient Of Inbreeding) of our dogs and improve the breed. Lower COI contributes to better long-term health and benefits golden retrievers as a whole. We don't breed just for today; we breed with the future in mind to have healthy, happy golden retrievers for decades to come.  

We follow the health-testing guidelines of the American Kennel Club and the Golden Retriever Club of America by examining our adult dogs' hips, elbows, eyes, and heart. We only want the finest goldens to become mothers and fathers. We also do genetic testing through Embark, one of the most reputable and thorough genetic companies. By pairing healthy, genetically diverse parents, we provide the best possible conditions for puppies to live long and healthy lives. This is especially important for purebred dogs like golden retrievers.

Not only do we focus on health, but we also take extra care to socialize our puppies well. We strive to cultivate friendly personality traits in our Golden Retriever Puppies for sale. High-quality socialization during the first two months of a puppy's life is one of the most critical components of its lifelong development. Socialization provides a strong foundation for emotionally healthy, well-adjusted adult dogs. This is easy to claim but hard to do. There simply is no replacement for quality time spent with puppies. We follow the lead of Dr. Carmen L. Battaglia and start with early neurological stimulation (ENS) when the puppies are just three days old. We continue thorough socialization until the puppies leave us. This includes exposing our puppies to a variety of different surfaces to walk on; human touch all over their bodies; temperature changes; different sounds like fireworks, doorbells, cats meowing, and car engines; children; baths and nail trims, and more. We want our puppies to be more than just physically healthy; we want them to be mentally and emotionally ready for their future families. 

As a breeder with integrity, we are members of the Golden Retriever Club of America and the American Kennel Club. We are also certified by the USDA, ICAW (Indiana Council of Animal Welfare), and BOAH (Indiana State Board of Animal Health). We are an A+ accredited business with the BBB (Better Business Bureau). You are welcome to read our reviews on Google and Facebook, as well as the Testimonials on our site. Our goal is to improve the breed of golden retrievers and provide outstanding companions for families.

What can you expect when you pick up your puppy?

All of our puppies receive plenty of love and attention. They are also: 

*Up-to-date on vaccinations and dewormings

*Checked by a licensed veterinarian 

*Microchipped and registered with their family's unique information on AKC Reunite

*Guaranteed to be healthy, as seen in our two-year Adoption Agreement

*Purebred and able to be registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC)

Personalized customer service is important to us. We include a care package with every puppy to help you get started on the right paw. It includes the puppy's baby photos, a blanket with the mother's scent, toys, a bag of the puppy's current food, and more to help your puppy transition as smoothly as possible. We offer lifelong support for every puppy and welcome families' questions and updates. We feel responsible for our puppies and want them to have loving homes their entire lives.

We ask potential families to complete the Puppy Application on our website. Once your application is approved, a deposit of $400 reserves a puppy for you and counts toward the total adoption cost. We allow families to choose their puppy based on the order of deposits received. All deposits are non-refundable unless we do not have a puppy for you. Please contact Marta with any questions!
