Our Labs are healthy
....We take great care and pride in breeding and raising our Lucky Labs puppies. It begins with proper care of our adult Labs. We keep our Labs healthy by maintaining their vaccinations with their yearly physical by our vet and keeping them on monthly heartworm prevention meds & frontline plus. Our female will usually only bred once a year and she has her exam & vaccinations just prior to breeding to ensure optimum antibodies pass to their pups. We feed them a high protein diet with our favorite dog food .....Nature's Recipe Easy to Digest along with other foods high in protein and we give them Nuvet vitamins. 30 days after the mating they are seen by our vet for their check-up and to confirm their pregnancy. She does not go through labor & delivery alone. She is watched very carefully with temperature checks to be sure when labor will occur. We stay with her through the whole process and help when she needs it. For the first couple of weeks she remains in our master bathroom, where we can keep close eyes on them. We pay close attention to temperature and make sure mama & babies are comfortable. Once they start getting around, they are moved into our large laundry room where they can have privacy and outdoor access. They are handled and loved every day. Starting at 3 weeks my children start playing and socializing with them along with us. They come out into our main living area 4-5 times a day for 30 min-an hour or however long it takes till they are tuckered out lol. At 4-5 weeks they start going out for play and socializing with our other labs and JRT’s. We also start potty training with the Potty Park and crate training. All this results in a Healthy, Happy, Well Adjusted Labrador Retriever Puppies that are handled from birth and ready to become your best friend and/or hunting buddy.

Our Labs have excellent temperaments…
..All our pups come from carefully selected parents that exhibit and pass on in their offspring the gentleness, loyalty and dedication that exemplifies the very best of the Labrador Retriever breed and has made it the Number One dog in America for over 18 years.. Our labs are full spirited, enthusiastic, eager to please. They are quick learners and very easy to train... not nervous or high strung. If we find when the pup matures that he or she does not have the right temperament we are looking for, we will not breed them. Even though they are a member of our family and we love them dearly we would rather find them a more suited pet home where they can be happiest, then to be selfish and keep them and not use them in our program. Because we are small family breeders who do not kennel or cage their labs & JRT's they must all have exceptional temperaments and get along well with each other and to LOVE children is a must!

Try Potty Park Risk Free!

Hey Everyone!  I’ve got some great news for you and your pets!

 

Over and over I am asked the very same question from my new puppy buyers – what is the best way to house train my new puppy?  This has always been a tricky answer because until recently there was no best way or worst way – just the long way.  Well thankfully that has all changed!

 

I was recently introduced to a product called Potty Park.  It literally is a toilet for dogs that can be used indoors or outdoors at your home, apartment or anywhere else your dog may need somewhere to relieve itself.  Essentially it’s your own private little piece of the dog park anywhere you need it.

 

I have seen other dog potties for sale and have been very skeptical because of the inherent dangers of all of the bacteria building up on these units, but Potty Park is made from anti-bacterial and anti-microbial medical grade materials.  In fact it’s the only true anti-microbial dog potty in the world! 

 

Once I found out that the White House uses Potty Park for Bo Obama I was sold!  I mean, if there was a better dog potty out there don’t you think they’d be using it?

 

Not only does it save your floors from accidents and stains, but it also allows you to spend more quality time with your dog(s) and less time cleaning up after them.
