Before you go any further, please understand that we require that you carry pet insurance on your puppy for the first year. We have been breeding for a long time and this could have saved several families a lot of money in vet bills. Puppies get into everything and pet insurance will help with unexpected vet bills.
How Do I Reserve A Puppy:
Fill out the Puppy/Dog Questionnaire and I will email you back or give you a call. We often get busy with family so if you do not hear back from us w/in 48 hours please give us call. We require a $500.00 deposit to reserve a puppy and the deposit is only refundable if we are unable to provide you with a puppy within a years time. Deposit goes towards the purchase price of puppy. Our puppy price is $4500.00 and $4800.00 for first pick male and female.
Do You Train Puppies?
We are not training at this time, please check back later for this option.
We will train your puppy until 12 weeks of age. This includes: crate training, walking on a leash, getting your puppy used to car rides, sleeping through the night and used to going potty outside on a leash. The cost for this training is $2000.00. This is done on a limited basis and it depends on our schedule. Please inquire if you are interested.
Do You Ship?
Yes, we ship and the cost is $475.00 which includes the crate, health certificate, flight and transportation to the airport.
When Do Puppies Go Home?
Puppies will be ready for their new homes beginning at 7 weeks and 2 days and continues through 8 weeks of age. You must pick your puppy up by 8 weeks of age or we will charge $30.00 a day until pickup. Final payment must be made by 6 weeks of age, at this time a puppy contract will be provided with our two year health guarantee.
Have the puppies been wormed or given shots?
Yes, puppies are wormed at 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 6 weeks and at pickup. Puppies will be given their first puppy shot at 6 weeks of age and the puppy will need additional puppy shots at 9 weeks, 12 weeks and 15 weeks of age. We use Vanguard 5 way shots.
May We Visit Your Home?
Yes, of course! You are welcome to visit, I just ask that you call first and let us know that you are coming. We also ask that if we have puppies at the time of your visit please do not visit or go around any other dogs or puppies before arrival. We do not allow visitors when we have newborn puppies at home for the protection of our babies.
How Do We Know Which Puppy We Will Get?
At 6 weeks of age we begin temperament testing and we match puppies to families based on individual needs and order of deposits. We are with our puppies everyday and we know them best.

Do You Offer A Guarantee?
White Sand Golden Retrievers offers a two year guarantee on any puppy with clinical signs of hip dysplasia or elbow dysplasia and a preliminary OFA report confirming severe hip dysplasia or grade II or III elbow dysplasia. A copy of the x-ray must be furnished to White Sand Goldens and if we determine that the dog was poorly positioned, we reserve the right to require the dog to be re-x-rayed by a vet of our choice. We reserve the right to acquire DNA to determine that the dog or puppy is one of our lineages. Puppy must be returned to the breeder at buyer’s expense. Breeder will not be held liable for any expenses incurred by buyer, including but not limited to veterinarian bills and transportation costs. Please visit our Health page for more information on health issues in the Golden Retriever.

How Long Have You Been Breeding? We have owned golden retrievers for about 20 years and began showing/breeding about 9 years ago.
Is It True There Is Less Cancer In English Goldens Versus American?
Some breeders claim this, however I am not sure where I stand on this issue. I believe ALL Golden Retrievers are susceptible to cancer and I will not make my decision until I have been breeding for at least 30 years. Here are a few studies that have been done and I will let you educate yourself and come to your own conclusions.

What is an English Golden Retriever?
As I have stated many times lighter colored golden retrievers brought into the states from other countries or even raised here in the states are sometimes called English Golden Retrievers, British Golden Retrievers, White or Rare White Golden Retrievers but truthfully they are just golden retrievers. The US golden retriever standard is a little different from the UK standard. There are other differences between the club standards and you are welcome to go in and compare them for yourselves. To give you an idea of where the term "English Golden Retriever" came from please read this article by Bev Brown
