After an in-depth study is complete to decide on a mating pair and we proceed with the breeding. From that time on our females are closely watched in our house under our care. Even though we feel our dogs are beautiful to look at we will NEVER breed a dog with anything less than the perfect Labrador temperament as we keep dogs from most Breedings and 80% of our puppies go into family homes.
We don’t expect you to live with anything that we can’t ourselves. Labradors should have excellent temperaments. Labs have been in our lives since 1976, our first child was a black female Labrador retriever called Dawn and she was with us until she was fourteen.
Our puppies are born in our house in the nursery or sometimes the kitchen. At three weeks old we start our De-worming program. At seven weeks old the vet comes here to give them their first set of vaccines. At that time we also micro-chip our puppies—this is a safeguard to help you recover your pet back should it ever become lost or stolen and also to keep them out of animal shelters. At eight – ten weeks of age our puppies are ready to go to approved, loving homes. They can been seen at 6 weeks of age.
