Beginning January 1, 2022, Limited AKC registration cost for all puppies will be $1200.
2023 pricing: Although the economy is going through a rough patch and costs keep increasing, I have decided to keep the prices at $1200 for the 2023 season.
Full AKC registrations are a decision that will be made on a case by case basis. If approved, they will be available for an additional $800 per pup.
A $300 non-refundable deposit will hold your place in the selection order for a new puppy. I accept Cash App, Venmo, and PayPal. Please see the “Deposit Procedure” page for more details on how this works.
Puppy selections are made on the day of puppy pick up. We believe this is a very big step for most puppy-parents, so to be fair we want you to have the opportunity to watch all the puppies as they grow bigger and develop their little personalities. Selecting your puppy at eight weeks will also allow you to better identify size and coloration if that is your preference.
Question: What’s the difference between Limited AKC registration and Full AKC registration?
Answer: Limited AKC Registration is when you register your puppy with AKC. You will raise your puppy with the confidence it is recognized by the American Kennel Club as a purebred Golden Retriever. As a consumer, you are spending a lot of money on a puppy and there is great value in knowing your breeder has followed all the criteria needed to fulfill the requirements set forth by AKC. Upon registration, your puppy’s information will be entered into a database and it will be issued an official AKC registration number. You will also be able to order a pedigree chart to trace your new puppy’s ancestry. This information will be mailed to your home, usually within 3-5 weeks.
Full AKC Registration is exactly the same as the limited registration, with one difference: should you decide, as your puppy gets older, you want to breed it with another fully registered Golden Retriever, you will be able to register the litters with the American Kennel Club. Without a Full registration of BOTH PARENTS, litters will not be recognized by AKC.
