Unfortunately sometimes problems do develop regardless of preventative efforts, and that is why we provide a guarantee to our buyers. If your puppy is found to have hip dysplasia (an OFA rating of less than Fair), poor elbows, or suffers from congenital eye defects requiring medical attention, we will replace him or her with the same sex pup and equal breeding at our earliest opportunity.
Puppies are ready to go home at eight weeks of age and will have had their first shots and worming. All puppies have a full vet exam and come with a written health guarantee. They are sold with a limited registration.
Adding a new Labrador Retriever puppy to your home is a big responsibility - emotionally and financially. With proper veterinary care and food, Labrador Retrievers live from 12 - 13 years of age.
They will need annual vaccinations, daily walks, and constant companionship. If you want a clean, hair free house, do not buy a Labrador. They are also one of the most affectionate, loyal breeds and do well with families and young children.
Training should begin as soon as your puppy comes home. Families with young children should also include them in their training sessions. Ask you vet for recommended trainers in your area.
Georgetown Labradors recommends crate training your puppy. This prevents unwanted damage in your home until your puppy is fully trained. The crate should also be used for your Labrador Retriever puppy when you are not able to watch them. Our adults Labradors still consider their crates their dens and put themselves to bed in their crates every night.
