Placement Policies
Everyone must submit a puppy questionnaire to be considered for one of my puppies. The questionnaire must be submitted by an adult.  Completing the questionnaire does not reserve a puppy. 

I match the new owners with the puppy that are most likely to meet the expectations. The selection is based on the temperament, confidence level, training attitude, sound sensitivity, and activity level of the puppies as well as the personal preferences of the prospective buyer. Final placement decisions are made after the temperament testing has been completed There may not be an appropriate puppy for families with young children, first time dog owners, and/or seniors in every litter. 

Companion dogs are sold with a spay/neuter agreement with AKC limited registration. 

I will not place 2 puppies from the same litter with a family. I recommend waiting about a year before getting another puppy.

I will not sell a puppy as a surprise gift. I want to meet with all members of the family that will have daily contact with the puppy. 

I do not ship puppies. 

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.

Planning and Raising Litters
My goal is to breed intelligent, healthy, sound puppies with correct conformation, classic Labrador temperament, and a low to moderate energy level. I breed black and chocolate American show-type Labradors, often referred to as English 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. 

My puppies are raised in my home. The puppies receive quality care with regards to safety, diet, exercise, veterinary care, and companionship. You will be able to meet with the dam of the puppies and several of her relatives. I do not own the sires of my litters. For the first month, the puppies are 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. I provide them with a wide variety of toys. Weather permitting, puppies are in an enclosed 12 foot by 24 foot patio area and a 10 foot by 34 foot shaded grassy pen for several hours a day. They have toddler climbing toys and toddler playhouses to play in. The puppies are exposed to a variety of sights, sounds, and surfaces. My puppies also spend a lot of time interacting with friends and family while they are with me.  During the last 2 weeks the puppies are with me, I bring them into other areas in the house individually. When the puppies are about 7 1/2 weeks old, they make the first trip the veterinarian. The puppies receive the first vaccination against canine diseases. I breed 1 or 2 litter a year.
