Planning and Raising Litters
My goal is to breed intelligent, healthy, sound puppies with correct conformation, classic Labrador temperament, and a moderate energy level. I breed black and chocolate English-type Labradors. Smart, healthy puppies with an eager-to-please attitude and a kind, loyal temperament are priorities. The sires are selected based on their temperament, conformation, health clearances, and pedigrees. My girls and the sires that I breed them to have numerous health clearances including hips, elbows, eyes, cardiac by echocardiogram, and numerous DNA tests for inherited disorders including EIC, PRA, and D locus. I breed 1 or 2 litter a year. You will be able to meet with the dam and several of her relatives. I do not own the sires of my litters.  I will provide prospective owners with information about the the sire including the pedigree, health clearances, and a link to the owners website if available. 

My puppies are raised in my home. For the first month, the puppies are in a whelping box in the guest room.  At 4 weeks of age, I move my puppies into a spacious pen in my sunroom where they have room to play and grow. I provide them with a wide variety of toys. Weather permitting, puppies are in an enclosed 12 foot by 20 foot patio area and a 10 foot by 34 foot shaded grassy pen for several hours a day. They have toddler climbing toys and playhouses to play in and around. The puppies are exposed to a variety of sights, sounds, and surfaces. They also spend a lot of time interacting with friends and family after they are 4 weeks old. When the puppies are about 6 weeks old I start bringing them into other areas in the house and main dog yard individually. The are exposed to household sounds including the vacuum cleaner, dish washer, telephone, and radio.

My puppies are temperament tested by an experienced dog trainer when they are at least 7 weeks old. The information obtained from these test and my observations are used to match the puppies with their new family. 

When the puppies are about 7 1/2 weeks old, they make the first trip the veterinarian. The puppies are  checked for intestinal parasites and each puppy is examined to identify any health problems. They receive the first vaccination against canine several diseases.

 I provide new owners with a copy of the New Hampshire health certificate, a small bag of dog food, a packet of information including care instructions and training tips, and copies of the pedigrees and health clearances of the sire and dam. I will register all the puppies in the litter with AKC.
