At 8 Weeks
All of our puppies are placed on Limited Registration to their new homes. The puppy can still be registered with the AKC and compete in all events except conformation showing. The “limited” simply means that if you bred the dog, none of their offspring can be registered with the AKC. Puppies are placed in their new homes at approximately 8 weeks old, after receiving their first inoculation, de-wormings and will be micro-chipped.
We also offer basic training for your puppy. If you would prefer to pick up your puppy at 3-4 months old, after the “puppy stage,” this is also available. The puppy will be micro-chipped, received all inoculations and Rabies, have their own crate and the following obedience: Leash trained, heal, sit, stay and crate-trained. You will still have a young dog, being able to enjoy their “puppy-hood,” yet have most of the work done for you! Payment for the additional time and training is required at 8 weeks, when you meet your puppy.
Started Companion Dog
We take great joy in the temperament and attitude of the Labradors we are blessed with. In turn, we strive to reproduce these traits in all of our litters. We have placed multiple Service Dogs, Guide Dogs for the blind and Therapy Dogs over the years. If you are looking for a dog to start on therapy work or just a super nice companion dog, we also offer started companion/therapy dogs.
These dogs are placed at approximately 2 years old. They have all the work of the 3-4 month old pup and they will work off-lead, have been spayed/neutered, will have been exposed to a number of distractions, including shopping malls, grocery stores and schools. They will be comfortable riding in any vehicle, will test and complete their AKC Canine Good Citizen Title with you, at our farm, before they leave and be ready to take and pass their Therapy Dog test.
Due to the extra work and veterinary expense involved, a deposit is required when choosing a companion/ therapy dog and full payment will be divided in two parts: half at 8 months of age and half when you take your dog home.
