FAQs

  • What color of Labradors do you breed?  ANSWER: We breed all three recognized colors: black, yellow, and chocolate.

  • How much do your pups cost?  ANSWER: $1350-1550, depending on the breeding.

  • How much is a deposit?  ANSWER: $300 to hold a puppy. We must receive your deposit within 3 business days.

 

  • How old are puppies when they go to their homes?  ANSWER: 8 weeks.

  • May I visit the pups before "go home" day?  ANSWER: If you have placed a deposit on a puppy, you may visit after they turn six weeks old.

  • Do you ship puppies?  ANSWER: Sorry, but we do not ship. We want to meet our puppies' owners face to face.

  • Do you deliver puppies?  ANSWER: Depending on the circumstances, we may agree to deliver for an additional charge.

  • What comes with the puppy on "go home" day?  ANSWER: We send you home with health records, an AKC puppy pack and registration information, microchip information, 10-day supply of Victor Hi Pro Plus for Active Dogs and Puppies, and a written health guarantee.

 

  • What care will he/she have received?  ANSWER: Your puppy will be socialized and child conditioned, de-wormed multiple times, vet examined, have its first round of vaccinations, microchipped, nails clipped, and bathed.

  • Are your puppies AKC registerable?  ANSWER: Yes. Our puppies are sold on a limited registration basis. If full registration is desired, we will be happy to discuss with you our pricing and criteria.

  • What kind of toys do you recommend?  ANSWER: We ask you to avoid small toys, rope, rawhide, and real bone. Also, we are cautious about toys made in China, due to questionable ingredients. We have had the best luck with durable rubber toys, the larger the better.

  • How big will your Labradors be when full grown?  ANSWER: There can be significant variation even between pups from the same litter. That said, we attempt to conform to breed standards as specified by The Labrador Retriever Club, with males weighing 65-80 pounds and females 10 pounds lighter on average.

  • How does microchipping work?  ANSWER: Your puppy will have rice-grain shaped chip implanted under the skin (between the shoulder blades). This chip has a unique 9-digit number. If your puppy is ever lost and taken to a vet hospital or shelter, they will scan it and trace the number back to you. All you have to do is register your contact information when you take your puppy home and pay a one-time registration fee of $19.95.

  • Do you have references?  ANSWER: If you are interested in a puppy from Dublin's Classic Labradors, we will be happy to put you in touch with current owners of our dogs.

  • Do you ever have adult dogs for sale?  ANSWER: If an adult dog fails to meet our standards for breeding, we make him/her available for re-homing to qualified owners. 

  • Will your dogs hunt?  ANSWER: Labs in general are born to hunt and it's a myth that English Labradors don't care for feathers. However, if you are looking for a hard-core field dog, we have an off-site titled female who produces outstanding hunting companions. Ask us about "Dixie" and we'll be happy to tell you more.
