All About Our Golden Retriever
Breeding Program ...


Rebelcreek Reg'd Kennels has been breeding quality golden retriever puppies for many years.  All of our sires and dams are certified free of hip dysplasia through OVC  or OFA, have their eyes certified by a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists and have had their hearts screened and found free of any hereditary heart disease.  Professionals that have been certified to conduct these tests in their respective fields do the tests.  We conduct only selective breeding in order to ensure that each breeding is the result of excellent quality parents, which are well suited in conformation and temperament to ensure sound, healthy, happy golden retriever pups.  Verification of all clearances available on request. 

During the nine week pregnancy our golden moms are fed premium adult food until 4-5 weeks of pregnancy and then are put on a premium puppy food to ensure maximum nutrition for mom and the rapidly growing fetuses.  This further ensures that when the pups are nursing, the milk they are getting is produced from the same food that they will start eating when they reach three weeks of age (pups begin food then but continue to nurse to 6-7 weeks of age).  The pups begin eating mashed up puppy food from three weeks of age onwards. 

Rebelcreek Golden Retriever puppies are raised in our home, with our family and are extremely well socialized.  Kept immaculately clean, our Golden Retriever puppies are constantly with our family, which includes other Golden Retrievers, cats, adults and children.  Our puppies are introduced to all the normal sights, sounds and smells of the daily household, both indoors and out.  

Our golden retriever puppies do not leave our home until they are seven and a half to eight weeks of age.  Removing pups from their litter before this age is cruel and often results in a golden retriever whose traits are less than desirable.   Important socialization and inter-socialization during the 5-8 week period is critical in the successful development of sound, happy, confident puppies.

Before leaving Rebelcreek, our Golden Retriever puppies are veterinarian examined.  They receive their first shots, are dewormed and each puppy is microchipped for identification.  All Rebelcreek Golden Retriever puppies are registered with the Canadian Kennel Club.  Golden Retriever puppies are sold on non-breeding agreements and are required to be spayed/neutered.  Under some circumstances the non-breeding agreement may be lifted if the contract criteria is met (see Sales Agreement).  Our Golden Retriever puppies are sold with a comprehensive warranty for hereditary problems and for temperament.  Our warranty terms can be viewed in our Sales Agreement/Guarantee.

When purchasing a golden retriever from Rebelcreek your dealings with us do not end when the puppy leaves our home.  We offer full "after sales service".  Should you have any questions, need advice, have concerns, or simply want to brag to someone about your special golden retriever, we invite you to call us.  We do not pretend to know everything, we do not replace veterinarian advice, but we do have extensive knowledge about the breed and about our puppies.

Many of your questions may be answered in our New Golden Retriever Puppy Info section.  Visit this section for answers to commonly asked questions.  It is intended for people learning about Golden retrievers, or people who already own a golden retriever.

Feel free to call us (see Contact Info) before you buy, as you buy or after you've bought your golden retriever.  As a consideration to other golden retriever breeders, we do not offer opinions about other breeders and we do not offer advice on golden retriever puppies acquired through other breeders.  All breeders have their own way of doing things, and all breeders know their own golden retrievers.  It is best to refer to the breeder from whom you purchased your golden retriever, as they can, and hopefully will, help you.
