***CURRENT / UPCOMING LITTERS***
***Parents are AKC titled and OFA Hip/ Elbow/ Eye & Cardiac (ECHO) Normal certified and have also had all pertinent genetic testing as recommended for the breed. ***
Ruby's puppies sired by Bogey arrived on 3/6/2019 and will be ready for their new homes in early May. I am currently making contacts with folks on my wait list.
No other litters are expected until late fall or early winter.
If you are interested in a pup from a future WindyCanyon litter, please email me with a bit about yourself / immediate family members, and 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 often have a wait list since 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.
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).
