Why Private Home Based breeders are superior to large scale puppy breeders and "puppy mills"

There are several reasons why golden retriever puppies raised in a home environment are generally considered to be better than those raised in a puppy mill. Here are a few:
  1. Health: Puppy mills often prioritize profit over the health and well-being of the puppies, which can result in unhealthy and genetically compromised animals. Puppies raised in a home environment are more likely to receive proper medical care and socialization.
  2. Socialization: Puppy mills typically do not provide the same level of socialization and human interaction as home environments. This can lead to behavioral problems and difficulty adjusting to a new home.
  3. Living conditions: Puppy mills are often overcrowded and unsanitary, leading to stress and suffering for the animals. Home environments, on the other hand, offer more space, comfort, and stimulation.
  4. Genetics: Responsible breeders who raise puppies in a home environment are more likely to carefully select their breeding dogs based on health and temperament, leading to healthier and better-adjusted puppies.
In short, puppies raised in a home environment are generally healthier, better socialized, and better adjusted to living in a home environment than those raised in a puppy mill.
