316-390-5381 Golden Retriever Breeders
We started our breeding business in 2019 when we purchased Judd and Cici. There are several things that we take pride in, like, we are a small business and fully intend to keep it that way, we did a lot of research prior to making this decision. We would rather put a whole lot of our time and love into each puppy than have several litters a year.
Below is an idea of what a family should expect when they adopt one of CJ’s Golden Home AKC Golden Retriever puppies.
Developed by Jeanette Forrey, her approach is similar to what we currently have in place, but she created a "puppy curriculum" that creates a foundation of critical skills.
Just when we thought we had all of this breeder stuff figured out...now, CJ's Golden Home has a new and improved standard of care. It truly is "Badass."
"It is about so much more than nice pictures posted to social media. Empowering and not enabling our pups through a curriculum that aligns with the sensitive development benchmarks is changing the quality of puppy by ensuring they are the best they can be. We are not wasting our time "training", but rather laying a foundation that matters. A foundation of critical skills (startle recovery, high approach, confidence building, a belief in their own abilities) that they will use for a lifetime!
Welcome to the new standard." Jeanette Forrey, Founder of Badass Breeder
You won’t find a kennel in our backyard! Our Golden’s are 100% house dogs. Each litter is born in a comfortable, dedicated Dog room.
We take every measure to ensure a calm, soothing environment for Mom and her puppies by playing spa-like music 24/7.
The whelping area is cleaned at least twice a day, disinfected, puppy pads changed out and all bedding is laundered using a high-temp sanitization mode.
Mom‘s teets are cleaned with warm water daily while nursing to monitor for any signs of abscess or infection.
Pups are monitored closely every day to ensure that we catch any changes in health early.
Simple interactions early in a puppy’s life may increase its ability to learn and cope successfully with stress later on, thus leading to better welfare outcomes. Early Neurological Stimulation (ENS), which was designed by the U.S. Military, involves applying gentle stressors to a very young animal for short periods of time, is thought to improve their stress responses later in life. The stressors—which often include removing animals from their litters for short periods, very briefly exposing them to cool temperatures, holding them in different positions, and gently touching parts of their bodies—are applied for a few seconds, once a day, for at least 10 days.
From days 3 to 16, we have Early Scent Introduction. We expose the puppy to a different pungent scent each day as we them close and let them smell the item. Chart the reaction, whether its positive, negative or neultra.
Each of our puppies receive the following:
We have installed a Ring video camera in the nursery that allows us to check on them when we aren’t at home.
As a bonus to each adopting family, you will be given the sign on information to access the video camera anytime! This has been a great addition to our breeding program. In choosing to do this, we want to give you peace of mind in knowing that your puppy is being taken care of and loved so much until he/she goes home forever.
Once the puppies are seven weeks old, we hold a selection weekend. This gives an opportunity for each family to interact with the entire litter and really find that "connection". We wait until they are seven weeks old because at this point, their personalities are blooming, and genetic traits are becoming more apparent. It's at this time that Chris is able to conduct puppy evaluations and get accurate results. We feel that it is better to match the personalities of the pup instead of a particular “look”.
Families that aren’t able to attend in person will have the opportunity to do FaceTime or a Zoom meeting.
We have a puppy midwife, I know this is a new term to many but our midwife is simply amazing! She is on call to us 24/7 in case of any concerns or questions that need answered immediately. This is an extra service that we feel is an imperative aspect of our success in raising healthy puppies and brings you peace of mind in knowing that we have access to a wealth of knowledge outside of regular veterinarian office hours.
Each of our adopting families are encouraged to visit our home as often as they would like.
Once the puppies have been born, families/individuals who have a deposit on file are welcome to visit our home.
Training is provided by Chris at a discounted rate. Those who enroll in Preschool Training will receive the five-week course for $75, normally $125.
Health testing on our breeding stock is a vital part of our success. Please see the links to K9data.com and wisdompanel.com where you will find the information for them. Testing is done to evaluate health and conformation to the GRCA standards and may only be completed through vets who are specialists in that area.
