WHY OUR PRICE AS COMPARED TO OTHERS
We get a number of calls and emails every year about our price and why so much. Well, If you look our prices are actually lower than the other Pointing Labrador(PL) kennels out there. Our dogs go through extensive DNA testing through a credible laboratory (Paw Print Genetics). We also test above and beyond the minimum recommended testing. We also do a cardiac test on the dogs. We also do eye certs, and last is we do Penn Hip and OFA hips and elbows tests and certs. None of this is cheap but, what this does is ensure that puppies born at this kennel are from health tested and cleared parents. We will not get into the different versions of Poodle mixes and Dilutes of the Labradors as it pertains to health testing and cost. Read this article below. It is well said and what this kennel does.
Hope this makes you think a little about the pricing. Also, the days of $500 and even $800 puppies is past. Non tested parents puppies are going for $1,000 to $1,200 and no guarantee. Look at our pricing with Guarantee and the health testing we perform and think hard about pricing now.
Let me say a few words to you, yes you, the person who texts and emails to just ask for the price. The person who calls and hears a price surprisingly says: ′′ I can buy a cheaper puppy somewhere else ". I'll talk to you too; the person who doesn't care about papers because I want ′′ just a pet ". No dog is ′′ just a pet".
Behind every purebred puppy / dog is a BREEDER. I use capital letters to distinguish a breeder from an animal factory or mill. A serious breeder does not breed dogs without documents that do not protect the integrity of the breed.
Registration (papers) are records of ancestry documenting the bloodline and enabling you to investigate possible health problems in your lineage. When you tell a breeder you don't care about paper, tell them you don't care less about puppy health, you just want the cheapest thing you can find!
If you choose to buy a puppy from a reputable and quality breeder, this breeder is responsible for every puppy's health.
This breeder will skip vacation, miss sleep, and most of his personal home space has been transformed into space for his dogs. The truly passionate breeder, who loves what he breeds, puts all his life's blood into it. Not only for puppies that are sold, but also for every customer who owns a piece of their heart and is now a member of their large family. This does not take into account puppies / dogs that may be getting sick or need extra help to thrive. Breeders worry about their babies after leaving and take them back without question.
A breeder will get his hands dirty, often covered in everything that comes with birth. Because that's what life is all about... in the midst of birth and death is life. The wheel that keeps spinning. A breeder conducts tests, echoes, x-rays, analytics, emergency C cuts, vaccinations, registration throws, research pedigrees, deworming and microchips of his puppies and has them
examined by specialists.
Last but not least, a breeder CHOOSES for the family who is lucky enough to have one of their puppies. Yes, you read correctly. A real breeder chooses who he sells to because he doesn't make money selling. There is no compensation that can offset the investment a breeder has made, so they must be able to rely on it to be the right choice. Often more than saying yes...
A good breeder has other criteria for those who want to continue his bloodline, why? Since breeding isn't a responsibility to take lightly, it's a lifestyle choice reserved ONLY for the few devoted people willing to sacrifice. Since a dog is never ′′ just a pet!!! he is the legacy of the breeder, a little boy's best friend, a protector of a little girl, therapy for elderly, a member of the family, someone's whole world!!!

Responsible breeding and possession of several dogs is a lifestyle and commitment many cannot understand. 7 days a week and 365 days a year our lives revolve around the dogs.
