Default Golden Retriever Breeders?

Hey there, I'm looking for suggestions for Golden Retriever breeders for my Mom. She had a female GR from the time she was 17 up into her late 20s/early 30s, and she's looking at getting another in a couple of years, now that almost all of us kids are grown and gone. She prefers darker/red ones, and doesn't like the look of what's winning in the confo ring, would much prefer working/sporting (dual confo is fine too) if that's do-able within the requirements. It would be an active pet, she is a runner and wants a dog for a jogging companion (3 miles 3-4 times a week, looking to get back into it more). Able to settle well in the house (with training) is a must, looking for a softer, more biddable dog. She would definitely prefer a dog that is very attached to it's person. PM suggestions are great, also if you have more questions feel free to ask. Also if you have me on the FB and want to PM, it would be greatly appreciated if you messaged me there instead, I often forget to check here.

Thanks!

This is the breeder that I closely looked into, I ended up not going with goldens but she is a wonderful breeder
working line, small scale, active, healthy dogs http://www.sunfiregold.com/
The website isn't the best but she's very well known and produces some great dogs.

I would also look at foxrun and cloverdale

all around new england!

Facebooked you as well

Stay away from Foxrun. I knew them personally and have grown up around their dogs.

I have LONG list of new england golden breeders that I made for a relative. It's just the basics...do they health test, do they do stuff with their dogs, etc. Most of them are show breeders (or show and sport...mostly obedience) though, as that's what my aunt and uncle would be best suited for. where abouts are you looking?

Awesome! So here's my overly long list. I lean towards being more inclusive than exclusive, I don't want to eliminate a good breeder because I don't have all the info. That's for you to decide either on your own or by talking to the breeder. So just a fair warning that some of these breeders might not be so great, just be sure to look into them more. Just FYI for goldens you want to see at least hips, elbows, eyes, and cardiac tested for. I will also send you a PM with a little more info.
