Potomac Valley Golden Retriever Club

The Potomac Valley Golden Retriever Club provides, as a public service, information about Golden Retriever puppies in the form of a booklet, fondly called “All the Poop On Puppies.”

Sections in this short booklet include:

  • Is the Golden Retriever the right dog for you?
  • Adult or Puppy?
  • Selecting a Breeder
  • Hereditary Problems
  • Owning a Golden
  • References for more information
  • Links to sample OFA and CERF Certifications

Download "All the Poop on Puppies", consider adoption by contacting the Golden Retriever Rescue or contact PVGRC’s Puppy Referral Service for a referral to reputable breeders.


Note:  AKC registration simply means the sire and dam of your Golden Retriever are the same breed.  It does NOT guarantee health, temperament, structural soundness, or breeding quality.
