Frequently asked questions

  1. When can I pickup my puppy?
    Puppies are available for pickup beginning at 8 weeks of age. We encourage puppies to be picked up no later than 9 weeks of age so that the bonding process can begin.
  2. Why won't you ship puppies?
    We consider our puppies as family not baggage, therefore we will not ship. Shipping puppies can be dangerous, and is not worth the risk. We will however, in some circumstances, meet you half way for a small fee.
  3. How often should I bathe my new best friend?
    Labs have oil in their coat. And its there for a reason. The more you bath with soap the more you remove the oil in their coat. And the result can be a dry flakey skin/coat. Therefore, it is best to simply "hose down" him/her when needed,without using soap.
  4. Do your Labs come microchipped?
    We microchip all of our puppies so that they can be identified if lost or stolen. However, you are responsible for the fees associated with registering your new best friend's microchip ($19.99 per year to register through HomeAgain).
  5. Will I need to have his/her dewclaws removed?
    We have already had this done for you. When our pups are between 3 and 5 days old we have their dewclaws removed to prevent future dewclaw injuries, unnecessary pain or risking infection from him/her accidentally ripping a dewclaw off.
  6. How do I know I'm getting a healthy pup?
    Our pups receive a checkup/dewclaw removal by a licensed veterinarian within 5 days of age. They will be dewormed at 2, 4, 6 and 8 weeks of age and will have all vaccinations up to date.
