What is the price of your dogs?
English Cream Golden Retrievers are $3000 for limited AKC registration. This includes the $500 deposit that holds the puppy for you until age 8 weeks. Families place their deposit of $500 through the Good Dog website to reserve and $2500 before or at pick up. This payment can also be made on my Good Dog page.
What is the process for getting a puppy from Cool Oaks Farm?
There is an application on gooddog.com. After filling out an application, you will be contacted and asked to chat over the phone. That is so we can get to know you and your family a little better and get an idea of what you are looking for in a dog. If all goes well, you will then place a non-refundable deposit of $500 letting us know at that time whether you want a male or female. After talking with you, we will be able to make suggestions as to which puppy would work for you. Picks will be in order of placed deposits.

Why wait to spay or neuter?
In the Litter Agreement I require that buyers wait until the puppies are 18 to 24 months old to spay or neuter. The reason is because the dogs need the hormones produced by their reproductive organs in order to develop healthy joints. By the time the dog is 18 months, the growth plates should have closed. There are also studies being conducted to discover if it is healthier for a dog to remain intact rather than be spayed or neutered at all. This is why I leave the decision to spay or neuter up to my buyers. Below is one of the many articles you can find of the subject: https://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/spay-neuter-and-joint-disease
