We have available golden retriever puppies now winter 2023 in Chesapeake, Virginia! We are also planning several English and American style litters this year and next. Fill out a puppy buyer questionnaire and email to me with any questions asap. $100 non refundable deposit to get on my wait list. This is to finally stop people from continuing to shop around and going for first puppy available they can find regardless of quality while taking up a spot on my wait list. This gives me a false idea of how many committed people are on my list. After pups are born, I then ask for remaining $400 deposit.  Deposits are non-refundable. The deposit goes toward the total cost of the pup. That payment is due on pick up of pup and only cash is accepted now. If I feel at any moment uncomfortable to sell you a pup, I will return your deposit promptly!


We are also looking for families that would be interested in a show puppy, and/or a contract “guardian” home for a show or breeding female of mine. Preferably a family that lives near me in Virginia. These pups would come with perks like free boarding here, free training, and free grooming. I’m also offering a mentorship program for people who are interested in learning how to breed responsibly and how to raise a litter correctly.  Please let me know if this is something you would be interested in .


Why I recommend NuVet Plus For All My Puppy Families:

As a quality breeder, my highest priority is the health of the dogs I breed.  Part of that responsibility includes doing everything possible to assure their wellbeing after they go to a new home. While all quality dog foods will provide everything needed to sustain life, virtually all of them are cooked during the manufacturing process.  The heat from cooking causes much of the nutrients to be lost during the process.   NuVet Plus is cold processed allowing all of the benefits of its rich nutrients to be retained, giving your new puppy an extra layer of protection, especially during the most critical first year of life.

 Additionally, when puppies nurse, they rely on their mother’s colostrum (highly nutritious milk produced right after birth) for the antibodies they need to fight infection. However, the maternal antibodies’ effectiveness declines as the puppy’s immune system begins to mature. By 8 weeks, your puppy’s immune system is at a vulnerable point and will soon be challenged on multiple fronts.

 When a puppy is moved away from its mother and siblings to live with its new family, the immune system is weakened by the stress of adoption and exposure to bacteria and viruses in its new home. These are pathogens for which the puppy’s body has not yet developed antibodies, and it is widely recognized that the immune system is less effective in times of stress.  So starting NuVet Plus now is important to helping your puppy grow into a healthy adult.

The vaccine series is also started during this time period. Vaccines are only effective if the immune system can respond properly. If the immune system is distracted by combating an actual disease processor and it does not receive the nutrients required to keep it strong during times of stress, the health of the puppy is at risk. The best way to prevent illness during this critical time is to provide the nutritional support required for proper immune system function.

  I WOULD LIKE YOU TO KEEP YOUR PUPPY ON IT AT LEAST A YEAR. I would LOVE it if you would continue them on it for the rest of their lives. An informative link is on my website for “NuVet Plus” and you can order from there (www.autumnlakegoldenretrievers.com). I will put an info packet in your puppy folder. You have to buy it through a breeder or vet. Luckily, you can order with my code: 86430.

If your puppy/dog is very active, is getting older, is growing too lanky, or has had trauma to his joints or cartilage, NuJoint is highly recommended in addition to your daily dose of NuVet. This information is also on my website.



Puppy Reservation Process and Information

You will be put on our waiting list in order of when we have approved your questionnaire. After pups are born, calls will be made to people of the waiting list, and if still interested, deposits will be made. If it happens that there is not a puppy available from the particular litter you are waiting for, you have the option of waiting for the next litter. We always reserve the right to decide who receives one of our puppies. Finding the right home for each puppy is of utmost importance to us. As a general rule, we will be the one choosing which puppies go to which homes. This is of course done in close consultation with the puppy buyer to insure each person gets the puppy that best fits their requirements.
Puppies usually go home at 8 weeks depending on when we are able to determine which puppies are potential show dogs and if they are mature enough to go home. The buyer is responsible for any costs involved in shipping of a puppy including shipping costs involved if the puppy is returned for any reason. This includes, but is not limited, to air charges and crates.
