We are very enthusiastically breeding Labradors, however Mother Nature aka hormones often makes a mockery of our plans. If we don’t have “buns in the oven” please let us refer you to another top-quality breeder. The time from conception to “walking out the door” is approximately 4 months. There is no reliable pregnancy test for dogs. We don’t maintain a long waiting list because it is possible for you to end up puppyless after patiently waiting.
We never know exactly how many puppies we will have available until after they are born. In the last 5 years we have had every number from a lonely singleton to 14!
Please don’t take it personally if we suggest a referral. Labrador breeders, like their dogs, are friendly and maintain an informal network – the Labrador Grapevine.
