Companion Dogs

You may have noticed we do NOT have a payment link on our website! This is because we do not support the idea of accepting deposits for puppies without first “meeting” our potential buyers. Please fill out an application and after review you may place a deposit if we feel one of our puppies is a good fit for your family. If accepted you will have the option of placing a deposit by mailing a check or bringing it to our home.

A Silver Platter Labrador puppy is $1,250. Deposits are $250 and go towards the total cost of your puppy. The remaining balance of $1,000 is due in full before your puppy goes home. If you are picking up in person, we request cash only on day of pick up. If your puppy is being flown to you we require payment in full, as well as additional shipping costs at least 7 days before his/her departure date.

Breeding Rights

We sell our puppies with limited registration and on spay/neuter contracts. We VERY rarely sell puppies with breeding rights. A limited registration puppy on contract is $1,250. A dog with breeding rights is subject to our breeding contract and prices can be found below.

Generally, all of our puppies are sold as companions only and require proof of alteration by 13 months of age. On rare occasion we may sell a puppy as a potential breeding dog to an approved family. We will not sell to “hobby breeders” but instead only to families that are willing to follow responsible breeding practices including genetic testing, controlled registration (offspring of said dog not being sold with full registration to every buyer) and proper whelping and puppy raising protocols. It is crucial to us that we not only protect our bloodlines, but the future of Labrador Retrievers and respectable breeding practices as a whole. Breeding is a major decision that should never be taken lightly even if “it’s just one litter”. Prices for one of our puppies sold with breeding rights are below.

Female chocolate (carrying silver) $1,700
Male chocolate (carrying silver) $2,000
Female silver: $2,000
Male silver: $2,300

How it Works

Puppies are chosen in the order deposits are received. Unlike other breeders, we do not “tie you down” to a specific litter. You will be offered a puppy in each litter born, in the correct order, until you have chosen. You may be surprised how often a family who’s heart was set on silver male may actually choose a chocolate girl because that is the puppy that connected with them! We want you to have this freedom and not fear losing your place in line if a puppy from your desired litter does not stand out to you. Of course, that doesn’t mean you cannot have a preference ahead of time! Example:

1. Smith family
2. Jones family
3. Shan family
4. McKinney family
5. Allen family

If Smith, Jones & Mckinney choose a puppy from “Litter A” but the Shan & Allen families both choose to wait, Shan will be bumped up to the #1 placement and the Allen family will become #2 for “Litter B” and so on.

Deposit families are asked to choose their puppy by the time they are 21 days old (3 weeks). This gives other waiting families a chance to make their decisions in a timely manner and gives me an opportunity to advertise any remaining puppies if a few aren’t chosen. I send photos, videos and descriptions from day one along with our temperament evaluations. We help you make the best choice possible for your family!

Unfortunately we are not in a position to offer payment plans at this time. Your puppy must be paid in full before he/she goes home.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
