Thank you for contacting us about our golden retrievers.

Our companion puppies are ready to go to their forever homes at the age of 9-10 weeks and will have been started on the first puppy vaccination, de-wormed, crate training and given a micro-chip. We also send home with the new owners a complete puppy book with pictures and all the parents and grandparents clearances and a copy of the pedigree. You will also have a copy of the complete contract!

The first 4-5 weeks our puppies are raised by Joy in Murrieta. During this time Mom and her puppies are never exposed to visitors. The moms have a job to do and we want to protect the immune systems of our young puppies from outside bacteria and viruses.

When the puppies are 4-5 weeks of age they go to Mary's in Fullerton to start their learning process, social skills, playing with each other and other adults. Our goal is to build confidence and create happy healthy puppies.
Around 5, 6 and 7 weeks of age we have open house with the new puppy owners and at that time new owners can sit on the ground and interact with the puppies.

As breeders, we breed show dogs, so therefore we will be evaluating the litter for potential show and obedience prospects around 8 weeks of age. We may also choose to hold back puppies that might otherwise be available at a later date. Once this process has been done we then have another open house and a puppy match up day with all the new owners.

We choose the puppies for you since we have raised them and know them best. We have listened and talked to the new owners at previous open house gatherings and watched the interaction with the puppies therefore we choose the family environment that they will best fit in to.
Example: family activity level, children, cats, other dogs etc....

Around 9-10 weeks of age our beautiful puppies are now ready to go to their new forever homes.

All companion puppies are sold on a limited AKC registration and a spay/ neuter (NOT BEFORE 18 MONTHS) contract .

If you are interested please download the potential new owner questionnaire located above and return it to calicoretrievers@aol.com

Before any one family is approved for a Calico puppy we do meet N greets first in our home, if that goes well we then set up in home or video visits of your home. It is very important to us to know where and what type of home you have to offer one of our puppies
