English vs American Labs. What is the difference?

English labs typically have blockier heads and thicker bodies. They also stand shorter and have thick, otter-like tails. English labs usually have a calmer demeanor, therefore making them the perfect family pets. Contrary to popular belief, English labs do have the drive to hunt, which makes them the most well rounded dog. Whether your needs are for hunting, service work, or a family companion, our labs are used for dual-purpose reasons.

How much are your labs?

Our labs are $2000 limited registration. Under current litters and upcoming litters, you will find the price listed for that specific litter.

Limited vs. Full Registration

​Limited registration simply means no breeding rights. Puppy's are still AKC registered and can enter MANY AKC events. Occasionally, on a case by case basis, we do sell full breeding rights to approved homes, for an additional fee. Please know that we are very picky and if we agree, the fee is double the cost of limited registration. 

What color labs do you breed?

Currently, we breed English black, white and light yellow.

How do I reserve one of your puppies?

Your $350 deposit is placed under “deposits” on our website.

Are deposits refundable?

Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE. However, if the sex/color is NOT produced at the time of birth, we DO give your deposit back or give you the option to transfer to another litter or puppy, but only after other depositors. 

How do I pick out which puppy I want?

We post individual puppy pictures at 3 weeks, 4 weeks and 5 weeks. In between, we continue to post LOTS of pictures, videos and updates. We will do everything we possibly can to help ensure you are satisfied with your pick and your needs/wants are met.

When do I pick up my puppy?

After being vet checked and approved to leave, our puppy’s typically go home between 7 and 8 weeks of age.

 

Do you ship?

Occasionally, we do ship via United Airlines. This is SAFE- we wouldn’t do it, if it was not. Flights are temperature controlled and are limited to 1-2 dogs per flight. There may be only 1 layover and the layover cannot be longer than 45 minutes to 1 hour. During the layover, the dog is check on and kept in a temperature controlled van supervised by airport ground staff. 

 

What does my puppy come with?

Each puppy comes microchipped, vet checked, vaccinated/dewormed and a 1 year genetic health guarantee (copy of this is found under “contracts”). Additionally, puppy’s are sent with an extensive portfolio that includes AKC papers, copies of parent’s titles and show pedigree, clicker for clicker training, along with clicker training information, 3 day NuVet vitamin supply, vaccination record, etc. We include quite a bit of information in each pack so that every family is well equipped and prepared for their new family member.

Are your dogs health tested?

YES! Health and temperament is VERY important to us. ALL of our labs have been tested via a genetic health panel that tests for common genetic issues found with labs such as EIC, HNPK, PRA, etc. Additionally, we test hips and elbows via OFA and Pennhip.  None of our dogs are affected, which produces very healthy and sound litters. We only produce healthy Labradors that we, personally, would want to keep as a family member. We have very high standards for our dogs- they must represent the breed well, be healthy and have the BEST demeanor. 

Can I come visit my puppy in person?

For safety and health concerns, we do not allow visitors. Our puppies are raised inside our home and do not even go outside until 6 weeks of age, after their first set of vaccinations. Parvo can easily be tracked inside without your knowledge, on the bottom of your shoes, along with a number of other diseases and viruses. For that reason, we do not allow visitors.

Are dewclaws removed?

No. Dewclaws DO serve as a useful purpose and is a dog’s thumb. Dewclaws come into contact with the ground. At high speeds (especially when turning) or on slippery surfaces, these dewclaws provide extra traction and help stabilize the carpal (joint). They are also useful for climbing out of the water or for jumping.

What vitamins do you feed?

All of our adult dogs and puppies receive a daily NuVet vitamin. These vitamins are crucial for immune system support and ensure that our dogs are getting the necessary nutrients to live a long, healthy life. Our dogs are never sick, have thick, luscious coats and produce the finest litters. All of this is attributed to NuVet vitamins.
