Puppy Placement Policies
  • Sunset Labrador puppies are carefully placed in approved homes. My primary responsibility is to the puppy. 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 essential. Final placement decisions are made after the temperament testing has been completed when the puppies are at least 7 weeks old. I want to feel comfortable with the families that are adopting my puppies. I also want the families to feel comfortable with my breeding program and the puppy selected for them. 
  • All first time prospective owners must submit a puppy questionnaire to be considered for one of my puppies. The questionnaire must be filled out by an adult. Completing the questionnaire does not reserve a puppy. 
  • The puppy for families with young children, first time dog owners, and seniors will be carefully selected. In some litters, there may not be a puppy that will be a good match.
  • My puppies are sold with a spay/neuter agreement with AKC limited registration. Males are to be neutered between 18 and 24 months of age and females need to be spayed between 12 and 18 months of age.
  • 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.
  • I will not place 2 puppies from the same litter with a family. There are often problems associated with raising litter mates. The puppies often develop a very strong bond to each other, and form a weaker bond with their new owners. Training 2 puppies at the same time is very demanding. A correction or praise intended for one of the puppies could easily confuse the other puppy. I recommend waiting about a year before getting another puppy. 
  • I will not sell a puppy as a gift. I need to meet with all members of the family that will have daily contact with the puppy before making a placement decision. 
  • I will not place a puppy in a new home on or around December 25. It's a very busy, stressful time for most families. Also, decorations and some holiday treats can be dangerous for a puppy. A new puppy needs a calm environment, a consistent routine, ongoing training, and a lot of attention during the first year. 
  • I do not ship puppies. No exceptions
