Getting Started

Here at 4 Paws and Family Golden Retrievers, our aim is to provide superior puppies and quality service! 

Before a puppy can be reserved, we request that all our prospective puppy parents fill out a puppy application form.  This not only ensures that our puppies go to the BEST homes possible, but it also helps us find the perfect match for YOU and our puppies! 

If you are interested in reserving one of our sweet pups, please click on the document icon below to access our online Puppy Application.

We will contact your for a brief phone interview after we receive your completed Puppy Application.

We raise our puppies using the Avidog and Puppy Culture protocols with adaptations based on our dogs, experience and new research.  Puppies are socialized, and well-started on house, crate and clicker training when they go to their new homes.

We feed premium foods and treats exclusively from Life’s Abundance. Their supplements are from NuVet.
