Thank you so much for your desire to choose a Hawkshead Labrador and also for your patience.

Once I have notified all interested parties and they confirm their pup on a first served basis for a bitch or dog, the process begins.  A $200 deposit is required in 3 working days to secure your pup and the remaining balance is due 1 week before homing. Upon receipt, I send through all the certificates for hip, elbow and eye and also pedigree papers for the dam and sire.

The pups are wormed every 2 weeks from 3 weeks old, they have their first vaccination at 6 weeks, then their second puppy vaccination at 3 months old. This is the ideal time to microchip them as well.

From 4 to 5 weeks old, the pups are in a kennel with runs, depending on weather. They have fairly much a free run for most of the day, they learn all about the garden, where to go and for how long.  They can be real dogs and each week they become more adventurous!! When I bed them down in their kennel at 6pm, I can honestly say I don’t hear a peep out of them till their mum feeds them in the morning.

They are fed 3 times a day when they go onto solids at 3 weeks (a Science Diet puppy up to 1 year) and Mum will also feed them as much as she wants to through the weaning process until they leave.

I meet a very strong criteria for breeding and am also as passionate about my family dogs as I am about the pups.  I put extreme care and good management into all of them and when the time comes to hand them over, I am very, very proud of them.

There will be papers to sign, so I send these off 3 weeks before homing for you to return to me signed, and your registration papers will come directly to you once I have homed all the pups.

When I hand your pup over, you will have a log book of vaccination and worming to date and I will also give you another 2 months supply of worming tablets to get you through to the next vet appointment. Worming thereafter is every 6 weeks.

I hope this is of help to you and I have every confidence you will have many years of enjoyment and loyalty from your Hawkshead Labrador.

Merry Christmas and very Happy New Year

Bridget Jones
