Raising Quality Chocolate and Black Labradors Since 1985

Our Puppies

 

Handsome, healthy, sound working dogs you can live with

NOTE: We have all of our dogs cleared for hip displasia, elbow displasia, have annual eye exams by a certified canine ophthalmologist and have tested our dogs for the Centronuclear Myopathy gene (CNM) and the Exercise Induced Collapse gene (EIC). EIC and CNM can be potentially fatal in dogs that are affected. Identifying the carriers so informed breeding decisions can be made means we will NEVER produce an affected dog.

A carrier bred to a clear dog will produce NORMAL (non-affected) pups. Some of the pups may be carriers, but this does not affect their health or working ability. The pups that will be used in future breeding programs should be tested and breeding decisions made accordingly.

 

All of our pups are well socialized from birth. Dew claws are removed at three days old.

Shortly after birth, we start early neurological stimulation which has shown to improve the overall health, hardiness and confidence of pups. At seven weeks old, pups receive parvo virus and other booster shots as recommended by our veterinarian. Around six to seven weeks, our pups are microchipped, each with a unique letter/number combination.

Between seven and eight weeks old, the pups will be examined by a certified canine ophthalmologist. Eye exam results will be included in the health records received by new puppy owners.

Puppies will be introduced to feathers from five weeks on and will be worked with individually as well as within the litter. Based on the personalities and traits of the puppies, I match each puppy with the requirements of the prospective owners.

Our pups are usually priced between $1,200 and $1,500, depending on the pedigrees and titles of sire and dam. We do not accept credit or debit cards.

Although not preferred, shipping can be arranged with the added costs of air freight, shipping crate, health certificate and transportation to the airport. A great alternative to shipping is for you to fly to Spokane, WA and carry the pup back in the cabin with you. This is easier on the pup and gives you a chance to see where your pup was raised.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are unable to pick your puppy up on the designated days (usually over a weekend), you need to notify me ahead of time to make arrangement for boarding the pup ($20 a day) plus any additional expenses such as shots or worming.
