Over the next month, Rhonda watched the litter carefully to make certain that she matched us with the right pup. And did she ever! A perfect match! Charlie is loving, gentle and content to just hang out and play with his toys and as long as he’s around his humans, he’s happy. Snitker Goldens obviously take pride in their Goldens and lovingly choose their families.
Snitker Goldens also does a great job of preparing you for your new life with your pup before the big day. Stephanie sent a suggested shopping list of things that I honestly would have never thought of purchasing, but was very glad I had them on hand. The items on the list are things that Snitker uses, too, so everything was familiar to our new pup, like the treats, for example. I can’t tell you how helpful this shopping list was!
What makes Snitker Goldens so unique, is their Imprinting process. I didn’t fully understand it until we took Charlie home. To start, Charlie was completely crate trained! In fact, it was two short nights and he was sleeping from 9 at night until 6 in the morning. He’s had no accidents in his crate! Charlie also came to us almost completely potty-trained. It was unbelievable. He knew exactly where he was supposed to do his business, and except for a few accidents at home (which were completely our fault for not understanding he has to go out immediately after he eats) he’s been accident-free. Charlie also knows how to “come” and sits patiently, looks you in the eye before he gets his treat. Before he eats, he knows to sit and wait until the food dish is put down.
The day we picked Charlie up, Rhonda Snitker met us in her home and was so welcoming and kind to us. She opened up a crate and pulled Charlie out and we were in love! We spent over an hour with Rhonda and Stephanie, going through paperwork, but mostly they patiently answered our questions. I’ve never felt so much at home as I did at Rhonda’s kitchen table!
We left Iowa that day with a Snitker Goldens bag filled with two weeks of food, supplements, shampoo, a book on training and our new pup’s “blankie” that smelled of home so he wouldn’t get lonely. And our darling puppy, Charlie, of course.
If you’re looking for a golden retriever puppy, I would look no further than Snitker Goldens. From the first communications to the day you drive away with your new puppy, you’ll be so glad you found them!
