WHAT IS PUPPY TESTING?
Some of the tests we use were developed as long ago as the l930’s for dogs bred to become Guide Dogs. Then in the 1950’s, studies on puppies were done to determine how quickly they learned. These studies were actually done to identify children’s learning stages.
Top Dog Tips: The ideal age to test the puppy is at 49 days of age when the puppy is neurologically complete and it has the brain of an adult dog. With each passing day after the 49th day the responses will be tainted by prior learning.
Later on in the early 60’s more tests were developed to determine if pups could be tested for dominance and submission. These tests determined that it was indeed possible to predict future behavioral traits of adult dogs by testing puppies at 49 days of age. Testing before or after that age affected the accuracy of the test, depending on the time before or after the 49th day.
We took these tests, added some of our own, and put together what is now known as the Volhard Puppy Aptitude Test, or PAT. PAT uses a scoring system from 1-6 and consists of ten tests. The tests are done consecutively and in the order listed. Each test is scored separately, and interpreted on its own merits. The scores are not averaged, and there are no winners or losers. The entire purpose is to select the right puppy for the right home.

I start all the pups on LA all life stages. If you are getting a golden retriever pup from me you can just purchase them a 40lb bag of All life stages, and agility formula, and the wellness supplement. My recommendations. Jack russell pups the 17.5 lb sm/med breed food, with the wellness supplement.

The Pick of the Litter Program allows for you to have a “pick of the litter puppy”, or adolescent/adult breeding dog for just a fraction of the price. This puppy or dog is part of your family forever, while the breeding rights are retained by VS GoldenFields for a short-term prescribed amount of time. Once this dog has completed his/her breeding career, he/she will be spayed or neutered at our expense. This dog will always remain a forever member of your family and at the end of our short term contract will become your full property!
Yes, initially. We do not give these dogs or pups away. The cost of a Pick of the Litter dog/puppy requires a deposit of half the puppy's price.
At the birth of this dog's first litter, we will refund the entire deposit back to you and will also pay you a set amount for each additional litter as a way of saying “thank you” for participating in our Pick of the Litter Program.
We have found that having an upfront deposit for these puppies and dogs is essential in finding the absolutely BEST homes for these wonderful dogs! By doing this, we eliminate those folks who may be doing the program for the wrong reasons! Again, we have done this as part of ensuring the health and benefit of every wonderful member of our VS GoldenFields family!
You are responsible for the general routine veterinary care and wellness of the puppy/dog placed with you. This means annual vaccines, feeding Life's Abundance Premium Health Food, supplements and treats, grooming, monthly heartworm prevention, flea/tick prevention, training, regular exercise and socialization, and most importantly all the love and care and attention possible
Any “breeding related” medical costs are the sole expense and responsibility of VS GoldenFields. You are only responsible for routine maintenance and medical care just as would be expected of any other responsible pet parent!
First of all, you get the very best that VS GoldenFields has to offer in the Golden Retriever! This means that we choose our breeding stock based on the best qualities that are outlined in our breed standard with temperament of course coming first.
