Our Goldens are raised in a family setting among us, socializing is very important. They live among us in our house, receiving regular care and attention, not in a separate kennel building with limited socialization, like some larger breeders have. This advantage is readily apparent when you meet our wonderful dogs. They are the friendliest dogs you could ever meet. Each of our dogs is afforded plenty of play time with adults and with other dogs. They love the outside as well as the inside, all throughout the year.
We do our best to hand over a well socialized puppy, but it is up to you to make sure this continues as your new puppy grows. After your puppy has finished its full series of immunizations against infectious diseases, take your new family member to a park, around the block, or shopping center, this socializing of your puppy will help as it grows. Your new golden will attract attention from friendly passers-by, thus focusing on and enlarging their social skills. Don’t forget to socialize your new puppy with the other dogs as well, but only on a leash. This allows your puppy the freedom to smell and get acquainted, until you get to know his new friends temperaments. Obedience training classes are a great way to train your eager to learn golden, as well as offering time to frolic & socialize with others of their own kind.
Obedience training classes are a great way to train your eager to learn golden, as well as offering time to socialize with others of their own kind. Unless you have significant experience with training, we always suggest at least a beginning obedience class.
Each family adopting a Mile High Golden are offered a puppy information kit that included basic information, health records, small supply of the dog food that they have been eating, AKC Registration papers, and our advice and willingness to answer any question we can on proper puppy rearing. They will also go home with a small blanket that will have their mother’s and littermate’s scents on it.
