Thanks for all the help guys.
Yes we are only going to look the breeder said they wont be ready untill 8 weeks.
We have researched on the breed and decided that goldens are best breed for us (young family of 4, own house and garden) just wanted to know any general advice i might of missed, stuff like handling the pup to check for lumps was good, ta.
It is our 1st dog although my wife had dogs when she was younger.
Thanks again.

tmar, Thanks for the update. I guess I jumped to conclusions and am happy to hear you've been doing your research. Sounds like you are trying to be careful about your new dog.

I always like to refer people to the AKC breed club website for whatever breed they're interested in, as they contains great information. I did find that the GRCA website is much more extensive than most, which is awesome!

I love a nice, well-behaved, easy-going Golden (Of course, there are those GRs that run on the high-energy side, so just pay attention to how the parents or bloodlines you're looking at....)

I'm sure the pups were cute... what did you think about them?
