I've always been told that you needed to wait until at least their second heat...

I'll back Serena's brilliant posts all the way. There really is no need to add to all of the already poorly bred Golden Retrievers. It is hard raising just one puppy, what would you do with a possible five or more?
Do the breed a huge favor and have your dog spayed.

Very wise advice.
