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. 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 dogs and their puppies receive quality care with regards to safety, diet, exercise, veterinary care, and loving companionship. My canine kids are part of my family and they live in the house with me. My girls usually have 2 litters. A couple of them had 3 litters. My retired breeding girls live with me for the rest of their lives. You will be able to meet with the dam of the puppies and several other older relatives.  I do not own the males that sire my litters. I provide information about the stud dogs that sire my litters. I breed about 1 litter a year. 

My puppies are raised in my home. They receive quality care with regards to safety, diet, exercise, veterinary care, and companionship. For the first month, the puppies are in the guest room.  At 4 weeks of age, I move my puppies into large pen in my sunroom where they have room to sleep, play, and grow. Weather permitting, puppies are in an enclosed 12 foot by 24 foot patio area and a 10 foot by 34 foot shaded grass pen for several hours a day. They are exposed to a variety of sights, sounds, and surfaces. My puppies spend a lot of time interacting with friends and family while they are with me. When the puppies are about 7 1/2 weeks old, they make the first trip the veterinarian for a check-up. The puppies receive the first vaccination against canine diseases and prophylactic treatment for parasites. 

My puppies are placed in approved homes with a comprehensive sales agreement that includes a health guarantee and a return clause.  Companion dogs are sold with a spay/neuter agreement on AKC limited registration. Based on the temperament, confidence level, training attitude, and activity level of the puppy as well as the personal preferences of the prospective buyer, I match the new owners with the puppies that are most likely to meet the expectations. There may not be an appropriate puppy for families with young children, first time dog owners, and seniors in every litter.

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