Thank you for the opportunity to introduce our puppy program to you and your family. Our Labrador Retrievers are the perfect blend of stellar athlete and loving household companion.
We are very serious about our breeding program and work hard to ensure your puppy is free of hereditary defects. When considering dogs of this caliber and potential, soundness is an important issue. All pups purchased at Silverbrook are guaranteed from hereditary defects. All dogs in our breeding program are required to be certified by OFA for hips, CERF for eyes, EIC, CNM, PRA, and RD/OSD. It is our obligation as a reputable breeder of fine Labrador Retrievers, to perpetuate all the outstanding qualities the breed possesses.
Silverbrook carefully selects the breeding stock from the best the AKC, NAHRA and HRC programs have to offer. We select Sires with outstanding producing and competition accomplishments and base the root of our breeding program on our females who are equally as well decorated. We feel strongly that the female must hold competition titles and have considerable hunting experience before asking you to purchase a puppy from her litter. Many hours must be spent training the mother of your future puppy to produce lines having excellent natural hunting abilities.
All puppies are crate trained as a manner of standard practice. Our crate training will produce a dog who adjusts to your home much quicker because it is comfortable in the crate and you will be able to begin housebreaking immediately. A puppy comfortable with crating can begin to acclimate to your feeding and work schedule quicker as well. This is important because your puppy will already understand how to “hold it” in the crate while you begin to establish your schedule.
All necessary worming and shots are given, and dew claws are removed. In addition, all pups at Silverbrook are microchipped, CERFed and Vet Certified at 6 weeks old.
Although we feel that we produce the best quality working dogs, we consider good pet homes as the most important placement for our pups. We care about the lives they will have after leaving us. We are always available to answer questions about our program or specific questions concerning testing or guarantees.
