|I am not an expert on Aussie Goldens, but I would look at the National Golden Retriever Club's website to see what their code of ethics is for breeding.
The male was bred before he was even one? that is NOT a good idea, I believe the youngest limit for reputable breeders in Australia is 18 months, plus you also need to see certifications on elbows, eyes and heart. There are also now genetic tests for PRA (eye condition) and Itchyosis (skin issue) that are of concern in European/British/Aussie lines.
Breeding back to back litters is now considered to be a healthier way to breed a bitch than skipping heats (as long as it is done only once). I do agree that I would want to know this girl is of a quality to be bred.
