***CURRENT / UPCOMING LITTER INFO***
WindyCanyon breeding stock is AKC titled and OFA Hip/ Elbow/ Eye & Echocardiac (Echo) Normal certified, plus have all pertinent genetic testing as recommended for the breed.
with particular attention to the paragraph regarding breeders involved with "fad colors". Don't walk away, RUN from these people!
If you are interested in being added to my wait list for a pup from a future WindyCanyon litter, please email me with a bit about yourself and any immediate family members. Describe to me your idea of the "perfect Labrador" (color and gender preferences, energy level, etc, along with the primary activities you plan to pursue with your pup). Your location as well as any past experience with Labradors is appreciated. I generally only breed 1 or 2 litters per year in the late fall or winter (after my busy apple season is behind me), so your timeline and any budgetary constraints may be important to note as well. If this is to be your first pet, please take the time to find a reliable vet now-- many vets are not accepting new clients due to COVID 19 & related widespread vet shortages.
Please do not inquire if you are not 100% ready to commit to a new puppy now!
*Emails just asking about availability and price will not be taken seriously *
I take pride in placing the right pup with the right owner, so everyone wins. Some of my pups are geared more toward "working" homes, meaning hunting or performance homes, but many will do well with active, outdoorsy type families.
If I don't feel my litter is the best fit for your family, I will try to steer you toward a more suitable one-- another reason why the written details from you are important!
Though I understand the desire to visit and pre-screen breeders, this is my home, not a "kennel facility". I also operate my own fruit consulting business from here, so visitations are limited to pre-approved families by appointment only. I am happy to provide personal and professional references if so desired.
PLEASE NOTE: **WindyCanyon does not ship puppies!**
WindyCanyon puppies are ready for their new homes at 8 weeks unless prior arrangements have been made and mutually agreed upon well in advance (at least 4 weeks). Additional boarding / training fees may apply.
Another excellent resource is the PSLRA puppy referral listing for puppies and older dogs currently being advertised by fellow lab club members. All litters listed there must comply with the PSLRA Code of Ethics (both parents must have a minimum of hip, elbow and current eye clearances on file along with other breed specific genetic testing such as EIC, CNM, and PRA).
