Puppy Availability & Info
Thank you for your interest for a Lachlan Labrador.
We wish you and your family a healthy 2021.
We're in the beginning stages of planning a black & yellow litter.
Thank you for your interest in a puppy from Lachlan Labrador Retrievers. Our litters are bred with the primary goal of keeping something for ourselves to show. As such, we are very selective about who we breed. While we focus on temperament, conformation, as well as retrieving ability, we make every effort to ensure we are breeding the healthiest representatives of the breed with the intent to produce the same.
Health Screenings are the most important, but only the first step, in determining whether a dog should be bred!!! Our dogs are screened for their OFA Hip, Elbows and Heart, Eyes Certified by a Board Certified Ophthalmologist as well as Optigen, EIC and other genetic tests when appropriate.
A puppy from a reputable breeder, by parents who have been carefully selected for health and temperament with OFA Hip, Elbow, Heart clearances, eye certification, as well as various genetic screenings, range from $2,000 to $3,000. The intent here is not to advertise the price, but to inform those researching breeders what to expect and aid in their search whether you get a puppy from us or another breeder. The best way to screen a breeder is to search their dogs registered name in the public OFA database that lists the health clearance of the parents (www.ofa.org). The basic health screenings are inexpensive. There is no excuse for a breeder, whether they show dogs or not, to breed a dog without an OFA hip & elbow clearance. If both parents of the litter are not listed in the OFA database, it is a red flag. I hope this bit of knowledge aids you in your search.
Our commitment to the breed goes well beyond health and temperament, our dogs are as much apart of our family as your new puppy will be with yours. Our dogs are not raised as kennel dogs, they are part of our family. We are very selective with who we keep and breed, the puppies are raised in our home and are socialized with our own children, friends and family. And of course your own visits. You will take home a very healthy and happy puppy.
We believe in puppies being reared properly. Litters are born and nurtured in our home, our Sunroom. We spend a lot of time, during the first eight weeks, handling and exposing puppies to different stimuli, new experience, and people. Each and every puppy receives a lot of love, playtime and attention. Our puppies are socialized, current on vaccinations, microchipped and de-wormed before they go to their new homes. They will also receive a health checkup from our veterinarian. Our pups are versatile, make lovable, loyal companions and can compete in obedience, conformation, agility, and of course make great hunting companions.
