Placement information
My puppies are carefully placed in approved homes. I strive to place each puppy in the home that I feel will provide the puppy with an optimal environment to thrive. The information from the prospective owners regarding their lifestyle, family dynamics, and the plans they have in mind for the puppy is an essential part of the selection process. 

All first time prospective owners must submit the puppy questionnaire to be considered for one of my puppies. It must be filled out by an adult. Completing the questionnaire does not reserve a puppy. I reserve up to five puppies before the litter arrives.

Visits start when the puppies are about 5 weeks old. To prevent the spread of dangerous infections,do not visit another litter before coming to my home. If you currently own a dog, please wear freshly laundered clothing and shoes cleaned with a disinfectant wipe.

No placement decision is final until after the temperament testing has been completed. The testing is done by an experienced dog trainer when the puppies are at least 7 weeks old.

My puppies are $2000. I accept a $300 deposit after the first visit if I think there will be a puppy that will be a good match for your family.

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 one or two 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. The puppies are exposed to a variety of sights, sounds, and surfaces. They also spend a lot of time interacting with friends and family. 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. When the puppies are about six 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.

The information obtained from the temperament testing and my evaluations of the puppies are used to match the puppies with their new family.  A puppy to be placed in a home with young children, first time buyers, and seniors will receive careful consideration. There may not be a puppy in every litter that is suitable for these families. 

When the puppies are between seven and eight 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.
