Are my prices higher than most?

I actually do ALL the testing where others don't (or won't). So, in reality, my prices are comparable to others.

2017-18 I will be highly mobile due to competing in waterfowl and upland competitions and placing titles on 13 of my dogs. When ordering a puppy, please understand that I could be anywhere on the West Coast when your puppy is ready to go home. I will make myself as available as possible in California, Oregon and Washington, but mutually agreed upon pickup arrangements will need to be made.

Love's Labradors seeks the best health possible that science and medicine provides for testing so as to prevent any inheritable diseases. My pricing for my dogs and puppies are indicative of the testing performed on the parents of the puppies. If you care enough for your pup's overall healthy life, then you should be seeking to purchase your next best companion and hunting partner from Love's Labradors.

Please consider the costs to fix the following: Cataract surgery @$4500, ACL @$4000, Elbow Replacement @$3000/ea, Bad Heart-Most won't pay for heart surgery, Retinal Dysplasia's--going blind or retinal detachment--no replacement but surgical costs @$4-8k.

Call a pet insurance company and review with them what they pay off with Labradors normally ......... and then factor in my higher prices. Yes, Mother Nature can still throw a curve ball with one of Love's Labradors pups, but the chances are minimized in comparison to the other 99% Labrador Breeders.

 

Guarantee:

Registered Puppies have the guarantee up to 30 months for any Hip and Elbow Dysplasia, PRA-PRCD, RDOSD, EIC, CNM, and Refractory (near sightedness). If any puppy is proven to have any of these diseases the owner has the option to keep the dog but you must neuter your dog. Most owners have grown attached to their dog and I understand this. I will be happy to give you another puppy out of a similar breeding at your convenience. I strive for the best breeding possible but as much as I may strive, Mother Nature has her own course and with that being said this means that oddities do happen occasionally. I apologize now if this ever does happen to you. Trust me as much I love these 4-legged Angels on this Earth more so than humans-I will be just as upset if not more, over your dog having anything at all wrong with it.

In regards to your pup coming up with hip or elbow dysplasia, you must be the original owner, have a licensed radiologist read the films and prove to me that your dog has been fed proper all stages dog food and NOT super high protein diet, not on calcium supplements and not been romping with an older dog doing body slams.

If your pup ends up having any eye conditions like Cataracts or other strains of Retinal Dysplasias I will not cover this as science has not supplied me with these tests yet to test for. But guarantee to you is that as tests become available I will continue testing the breeding parents and keep you informed of these results.

Should the situation arise that the buyer cannot keep their dog, Love's Labradors will make all reasonable efforts to help the buyer place the dog in another home and may, without compensation to the buyer, take the dog back at its discretion.

Vet insurance is highly encouraged! It is inexpensive and Labradors have their nose down on the ground and are athletes and try things they should NOT!! www.petinsurancereview.com. I personally use Embrace Insurance.

 

My Strife and Your Protection

My belief is that ALL dogs are beautiful and loving and deserve the absolute best in life full of love and attention. Love’s Labradors are special. Love’s Labradors are superior in the following ways: looks, personalities, huntability, precise marking and controlled blinds, birdiness, loving, gentleness, solid energy and past and present proven National Champions and lineage. Love’s Labradors goes the extra measure that others should. Why do other breeders not go the distance? Because as long as there are buyers out there that buy dogs from less than the best in breeding, breeding facilities, breeding standards & testing then the breeders remain at minimal standards. Raising their standards decreases the amount of money they make. I disagree with that; I expect the absolute best and so should you. Yes, my standards are superior. Perhaps someday ‘the other so-called breeders” will make my standards the normal and I look forward to that day as one should only have the best breed dogs supplied by qualified breeders to the public. I hope to have your business but more importantly you should hope to have one of Love’s Labradors.

Proven dogs for the hunter or family dog? What does this give you? It shows that the lineage doesn't break down to stress, can handle the task at hand and the test of time.

Love’s Labradors Puppies new homes are screened to make certain they are going to the best home that is best for them and the new owners. The new puppy needs to be first a family dog and second the hunting dog (that is if they are going to utilize the lab for hunting). If the personality and energy level of the lab and family are not well matched, please return the Labrador and let’s collectively get you properly matched with the right Labrador for you and your family.
