Puppy Pricing Information



Our puppy pricing typically starts at $2,500 for a test breeding on Limited AKC Registration. Dams or sires with titles, pedigree, genetic clearances and so forth adjust the price. Full AKC Registration may be available to serious hobby breeders who intend to attain the core OFA health certifications. We may perform additional genetics testing on pups going to Full AKC Registration households. We offer payment by check, credit, debit, or Venmo through PayPal. We also accept payment by good check (allow time for clearing), or cash at pick-up.


Puppy Price


Pups from many of our litters may have genetic testing to check between clear and carrier status (dependent upon someone seeking Full AKC registration). AKC individual registration (Limited or Full), first vaccinations & vet checks, and microchipping is provided.


We occasionally raise golden retriever Kindergarten pups, possessing extra training and socialization. Pricing for these pups start at the puppy price and continues to increase weekly as this is a started pup in training. Please inquire about future Kindergarten pups and your ideal time to receive a pup by completing the questionnaire toward the bottom of this page.


Future puppies at this time from our 2020 (anticipated pups ready Sept 9) Roxy x Moose range from $2,500 (Limited AKC Registration) to $3,200 (Full AKC Registration)*. --Reservations full at this time. You may, however, place a reservation for Roxy's next planned litter in Spring 2021 and should a pup come available from the current litter we will offer to those first with reservations, and then go to our wait list.


Future puppies at this time from our 2021 Penelope x Sire to be Determined (likely a titled field golden) range from $2,500 (Limited AKC Registration) to $3,200 (Full AKC Registration)*. -- Reservations available for male or female pups.


*The total price, not including shipping/handling costs are taxable. The deposit tax will be added to the final billing as deposits do not need to be taxed prior to the litter whelping, due to the potential for refund if no pups are produced. This also allows time to determine the state sales tax location, if pick-up is in Minnesota or shipping to a different state. (Minnesota sales tax for picking up at our location is 6.88% as of 2020.)


The remaining amount of the purchase price (including applicable sales tax), less any deposit made, is due at the time of pick-up or the pup's age of eight weeks, unless other arrangements are agreed upon in advance. The remaining amount for puppies that will be shipped is due by the pup's age of six (6) weeks in order for Floden Farm to make shipping arrangements.


We accept credit, debit or check payments via Paypal's secure site, or payment by check. If paying check by regular mail, we need time for the check to clear. Cash is also acceptable at pick-up. We will provide you a bill of sale/receipt.


*AKC Registration Types:


Full AKC Registration includes the potential for breeding rights and the potential for showing in conformation events.

Limited AKC Registration does not allow offspring to be registered through AKC, nor can dogs participate in conformation events. Spaying or neutering is not required, however any offspring produced are not AKC registerable unless the difference in price is paid to change to Full AKC Registration.


Both types of AKC registration allow dogs to participate in AKC venues such as hunt testing, field trialing, agility, obedience, and others.


Shipping Option


While we prefer families to visit and pick-out their pup in person, we understand distance can be a challenge. A couple of our own goldens were flown to us from each coast without issue. Our optional shipping flat rate to the continental US and Alaska is $500, which includes:

  • coordination and payment of airline controlled temperature cargo shipping
  • airline approved crate that's yours to keep, and additional crate acclimation training for flying
  • our transportation to and from the airport
  • additional airline veterinary clearance check-up and paperwork


Pups must be at least 8 weeks old in order to be flown. We prefer scheduling direct flights out of MSP or FAR airports and will work with the airline to avoid additional flight legs if possible. Chicago, Illinois, Austin and Houston, Texas, and Denver, Colorado are often major airline hubs we are able to fly direct to. We will discuss time and dates with you and make all of the arrangements for you to pick up your pup in your nearby airport or cargo facility if shipping by air cargo. Pups are worked with to acclimate to crates and noise desensitized by playing airplane noises prior to flying to help them adjust as well as possible. We also play nature sounds, gun fire noise (at lower levels), thunderstorms, baby crying, various vehicles, and so on.


Shipping fees are non-refundable and must be paid before the puppy's sixth week of age in order for Floden Farm to have adequate time to make shipping arrangements.


- At present, there are some air cargo shipping restrictions with various airlines due to COVID-19. Many airlines also have temperature restrictions in summer and winter. We are finding that the airlines are gradually lifting some travel restrictions for live animals, and we will work with you to schedule delivery as circumstances change. We are hopeful by September the situation will be easier for live animal travel.
