Please either copy and paste the application below to a word document or email to complete and email or mail to the address on the application.

This questionnaire is for the mutual benefit of you, the prospective owner, me as the seller/breeder and the Golden Retriever you plan to have as a member of your family.

It does not constitute a contract on my part to provide you with a puppy, nor does it obligate you to take one.

Your answers to the questions are not the only factor in the determination of your suitability as a Golden Retriever owner.
