We got our new, Vizsla family member from Golden Meadows and highly recommend them! We wanted a Vizsla to be trained as a service dog. They hand picked a girl for us based on an easy temperament and then trained her until she was 6 months old and could pass her CGC test. She was amazing from the first day we had her - very well trained and very well adjusted. The Golden Meadows trainers did a perfect job of positive training to make sure she understands, but has spirit! She hasn't met a person or animal she doesn't love. She is a typically cuddly dog, just like a Vizsla should be. We can't say enough good things about Golden Meadows and our new baby dog. more »

This review is long overdue! My boyfriend and I researched a ton of Vizsla breeders in SoCal and found Golden Meadows to be the all-around favorite for reasons they certainly lived up to. From their honesty and care to their prompt communication, beautiful facility, and vast knowledge, Tim, Barbie, and Alicia made the entire experience a breeze for us first time puppy owners. When getting our baby Bruno back in September 2017, they let us do a meet & greet with his parents, have ample play time with Bruno and one of his siblings (the final 2 left for sale in that particular litter) and spend a ton of time mulling over the decision to purchase. Just to be clear: We were certain in our decision to purchase from Golden Meadows but were uncertain as to the timing given our work schedules at that point. They gave us a comprehensive manual which included his vaccination history, training tips, daily routine, lineage, etc. We also received a large bag of dog food and a blanket that smelled like their facility to help with the transition. I know this is a business and reviews only go so far, but trust me when I say Tim, Barbie, and Alicia really make you feel at home.
Flash Forward to May 2018 -
As we approached Bruno's first birthday on June 10, we thought it would be fun to reunite him with his littermates. I reached out to Alicia over email and within just a day or two she was able to help me arrange a play session with Bruno and one of his sisters and brothers at Golden Meadows. Bruno had a blast, was worn out the rest of the day, and it's a special memory my boyfriend and I will always treasure. Thank you Golden Meadows! We love you guys!

Our puppy 'Maverick' from Serenity and Sven's November 26th litter is an absolute gem. Smart, obedient, easy-going and an amazing companion. We live in a beach community and he goes everywhere with us. Tim, Alicia and the team at Golden Meadows do it right. We couldn't be more impressed with their professionalism and process nor more pleased with Mav. If you truly want an incredible dog - check out Golden Meadows. more »

Our puppy 'Pippa' from the the Francesca/Sven litter June 2017 is absolutely the smartest, most beautiful puppy ever born without a doubt! At just over 4 months old she is a delight to live with; we have not dealt with puppy terrors one bit. No crying the first nights away from her littermates. Loving, sweet, confident and incredibly SMART. We have had three goldens prior to Pippa and although all of them were extremely intelligent Pippa is by far the genus of the group. I could go on and tell you everything she learned incredibly fast, but just know these puppies are SMART. Golden Meadows takes great care and pride not only in the beauty of their puppies (which is extraordinary) but intelligence as well. I was very reluctant to have Golden Meadows choose our puppy for us, but they could not have chosen better. Many breeders are adopting this method of placing their puppies and if you think about it it makes sense; they want their pups placed properly as well and not go home with the wrong fit because they were the cutest, or lightest, or acting mellow at the moment.They obviously took the time to read my carefully filled out application (something I highly recommend taking great care filling out) and matched us with the perfect pup for what we want to do with her (Therapy Dog) and how we live our lives. At her puppy kindergarten class the trainer was impressed with how outgoing and confident Pippa was at 14 weeks old. I could not recommend Golden Meadows more. From beginning to end the health and happiness of the puppies and Mom Francesca was of the utmost importance. Rest assured you will get a beautiful, intelligent puppy that will be worth every penny you paid! And BTW....I never write reviews but this was important to help nervous new puppy parents be at ease more »

My puppy, LEXI, now almost 5 months old, is not only beautiful, smart, and loving, but she has the excellent golden retriever blood lines for good health and long life. An exceptional, careful breeder, Golden Meadows Retrievers goes to great lengths to make sure you are paired up with the right pup for your lifestyle and requirements. I am absolutely thrilled with LEXI, a blend of the English Cream, and light golden. She is worth every penny I spent (a stretch for me), and I highly recommend this breeder (so worth the cost). more »

Our Vizsla pup, now 14 weeks, is super well-tempered and intelligent. We owe much of that to the early training regimen and care given by the breeders. more »

We have had an incredible experience purchasing our puppy "Stella" with Golden Meadows Retrievers. From initial contact, we filled out the "puppy request form" and clearly communicated our desire to raise a service dog for our local fire station. We needed a confident puppy that was smart, friendly, easy-going, and unafraid of loud sirens and a lot of commotion. We could not be more impressed with our puppy . She is smart, easy to train and ready to please. At 12 weeks old, she is already using the pet door to relieve herself outdoors, knows her name , and the commands: sit, down, and stay. We had a fecal test done at the vet at 9 weeks and our puppy tested negative for all parasites- which apparently, is "very rare "for puppies coming from commercial breeders. Our vet commented, "you must have gotten her from a top-class breeder". Stella is now 15 weeks and we have contacted Golden Meadows with several questions regarding behavior and training. They have been very responsive-providing detailed answers, phone calls and emails with guidance to all of our questions.
Great Gorgeous Golden Breeder!

Beautiful Vizslas and Golden Retrievers well trained. The experience is great - if you're into celebrities, you'll spot some pictures on the walls of some who bought puppies here. :D more »

This is a long overdue review, but I've been busy taking care of a puppy! My husband and kids purchased Jax in September (originally jack, but kids renamed him), while I was out of the country.... I wasn't thrilled..... But I love my dog to bits. Honestly, more than the rest of my family. He's the sweetest, most loving dog. Golden Meadows did an amazing job finding the right fit for our family. Barbie and Tim have answered endless questions, and we have even boarded Jax a couple of times (10 days was the longest). He was so excited to go back home. We signed him up for further obedience training whilst he was there, which only helped in making him a great puppy. He has such a great temperament, he's fantastic around other dogs and kids. We constantly get stopped by people commenting on his disposition, how good natured he is, and gets a 10 for looks!! He's great on walks both hiking and in crowded places, not at all bothered by sudden loud noises. Our vet said he's had so many well behaved dogs come to him from Golden Meadows, and more importantly, they're all in such good health, with great physical attributes. The only downside to all of this...... I want another one!! more »

We purchased our sweet little "Lady" girl in summer. She fits with our family perfectly!! She is so sweet, patient with our kids and too smart for her own good! We love her to pieces. Purchasing her was seamless. We can't take her anywhere without people commenting on how beautiful and sweet she is. We are delighted to recommend Golden Meadows to friends and family. Thank you! more »
