The best breeders - maybe even others you are considering - do some of the following to breed good puppies. Very few, if any, do everything we do. Don't take our word for it. Ask them.
All but one of the adopted puppies in the current litter have gone to families that have had a lab before. People who know labrador retrievers choose Bayleigh's Labradors.
There are many reasons why we chose to breed Bayleigh but there were really two that first led us to consider it. On our journey to find the right dog for our family - once we narrowed our choice to a lab - we really struggled to find well-bred lab puppies in the Atlanta area. In fact, we finally found Bayleigh at a breeder about a 2-hour drive away. And, because we selected Bayleigh weeks before she was ready to be separated from her mother and siblings, we had to make that trip twice.
Our second motivation was cost. After we had done our homework and learned the differences between different breeders and their dogs, we found that puppies of parents like Bayleigh and Chief, bred with the best care, environment, and socialization were typically priced from $1500 up to $2500.
We just don't believe that you shouuld have to go that far or pay that much for a healthy, well-bred labrador retreiver puppy.
