Member Litter Referral/Stud Service Referral

Following the GRCA requirements, the parents of any litter submitted for our litter referral service and any stud dog submitted for stud service referral are required to have the following:

  1. Be of temperament typical of the Golden Retriever breed; stable, friendly, trainable, and willing to work;
  2. Be in good health, including freedom from communicable disease;
  3. Have verifiable clearances for hips and elbows from the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA);
  4. Have a heart clearance from a board-certified Cardiologist recorded in an online approved database; and
  5. Have a current (within 12 months of breeding) eye clearance from a board-certified ophthalmologist recorded in an online approved database (usually the OFA).

For litter and/or stud dog referrals send the copies or links to the clearances to the GRCSDC by e-mail at for details. Stud service is phone referred only. Litter listings are free to members for phone referrals; there is a $50 charge for listings in the GRCSDC newsletter.
