The Golden Retriever Club of San Diego County, Inc.

Following the GRCA requirements, both sire and dam must have four genetic health clearances: OFA HIP, ELBOW, and HEART clearances, and a current EYE clearance. HIP, ELBOW and HEART clearances are good for the life of the dog; EYE clearances are good for one year, and must be renewed/re-evaluated annually. For litter and/or stud dog referrals send the copies of the four clearances, along with the pedigree to the GOLDEN GEMS Editor, Jeannette Poling. Stud service is phone referred only. Litter listings are free to members for phone referrals; there is a $50 charge for listings in the newsletter.
