The Golden Retriever Club of Western Australia
The Golden Retriever Club of WA is dedicated to protecting and advancing the interests of the Golden Retriever by promoting responsible ownership and breeding. The Golden Retriever Club of Western Australia has members whose interest in the breed has led them to develop the potential of the Golden Retriever in each of these areas. We are an active club whose members participate in a variety of activities with their dogs such as agility, conformation, obedience and retrieving.
If you love Golden Retrievers and are interested in doing more fun activities with your dog we encourage you to join us. You may apply, renew and pay for your membership online or download a membership form from our website.
CHOOSING A BREEDER
Always purchase a puppy from a registered breeder where you can see the mother and siblings of your puppy. You will be able to see first hand the temperament of the mother and the conditions in which the puppies are being raised and socialised. Quite often though, the sire will not be available for you to meet as he might reside elsewhere or the breeder has used artificial insemination in the case of an overseas stud dog.
A registered breeder in Western Australia must be a member of Dogswest, the controlling body for pure bred dogs. Breeders must comply with the Dogswest code of practice. A breeder who is also a member of the Golden Retriever Club of WA must also comply with their code of ethics.
