Tips on Selecting A Puppy
The unique genetic characteristics inherent in each Labrador clue us in to subtle differences that are apparent from one pup to another. Because we the breeder, are with these puppies training -and living- side by side for many weeks, we come to see these characteristics clearly and do our best to make appropriate recommendations to those who choose to purchase one of our Labradors.
We strive to match you to the dog that is best suited for you and your unique situation, along with your lifestyle, energy level and expectations. Along with the Obedience Personality Testing that we implement, we also ask that each prospective puppy parent complete our Puppy Personality Inventory to assist us in determining which type of puppy personality would best fit you and your family's needs. If we do not have a puppy that would blend harmoniously into your specific situation we will recommend a like-minded breeder that does.
Puppy ownership is a serious responsibility, yet it is also extremely rewarding. As a breeder, we encourage you to consider the weight of this responsibility and be certain that you are willing and able to invest the time, resources, and energy necessary into caring for the life of a new puppy. Your dog will rely fully on you for its physical, psychological, and emotional needs. The personal sacrifice is great but the rewards are plenty!
We strongly encourage each adoptive family to continue loving, training, and nurturing the puppies once they are in their care. In our Kingridge Puppy Package (the packet of information we provide with each puppy) there are worksheets that detail specific training exercises that should be practiced in the first month that you bring your puppy home. This helps to ensure that your new family blends harmoniously. We feel strongly that the continuation and consistency of training is extremely important to the relationship that you develop with your new companion.
We remain accessible via phone or email to answer any questions that may arise, and we see it as our privilege to assist you in any way we can throughout the lifetime shared with your new AKC Labrador.
