Puppies are priced at $1800. We do keep lists and accept deposits for upcoming litters. Deposits are $500, with the balance of $1300 due upon receipt of your puppy.

The primary purpose for our litters is to replenish our breeding and show dog program. We are very selective in which puppies we keep, and therefore have several from each litter that are available to approved pet homes. Please be aware that we do not normally sell puppies that are represented as Show Prospects, as those puppies go into our own show and breeding program.

Breeding stock is screened for common Labrador problems such as hip & elbow dysplasia, as well as eye diseases. Puppies are released at approximately 8 weeks of age. Older puppies we might have are ones that we held back to evaluate for our breeding/show program. All puppies are sold with a written contract/guarantee and on AKC Limited Registration.

We sell our puppies at a family companion price, not a breeding/show dog price. We rarely sell dogs for breeding purposes. Researching prices in your area, you will find that well-bred Labradors cost anywhere from $1500 to $2800. A puppy you find for less money will most likely come from what is referred to as a 'backyard breeder'. Most of the people who breed their pets together are not in the sport of purebred dogs, do not research the health and genetics behind their Labrador pedigrees, and do not perform the neessary hip, elbow, and eye testing of the breeding stock. Although the X-rays and DNA tests can get pricey, they give the breeders a higher chance that their puppies will live long and healthy lives, free from most of the inheritable genetic problems that affect so many Labradors worldwide...
