Puppies and COVID times:
Please take note:
The COVID virus has brought on an incredible volume of individuals searching for puppies. Apparently, working from home has benefits for all, including dogs. Most of our club members are finding that they are overwhelmed with inquiries for puppies. At this time because of the volume of inquiries, there are few puppy postings on the club web site. Contact the site administrator who may be able to forward you names of members who have mentioned that they may be doing a breeding this year or email members listed on the Breeders page. Also check other Lab club web sites to see if their members have postings.
|Be sure this is the right time for you to have a puppy. A puppy needs a REGULAR DAILY SCHEDULE, proper housing/food, and LOTS of attention. If you don’t think you can spend quality time with your dog on a daily basis, now might not be the time for you to consider a pup. Puppies and Dogs are for LIFE so seriously consider all these points when you decide to make that first step toward acquiring your new best friend.

SILVER LABRADORS– The PRLRC supports our breed’s parent club, The Labrador Retriever Club, Inc., on the issue of coat color. The PRLRC does not support the crossbreeding of any breed with a Labrador. FMI-Crossbred “Designer” breeds.
UPCOMING LITTERS: If you do not see the color pup that is your preference, please check back or visit the BREEDERS REFERRAL to inquire of individual breeders. You may also contact listing co-ordinator who may be able to refer you to breeders not listed who can help you in your search.
Occasionally, breeders may have adults or older puppies available. These dogs are either kept from a litter with the intention of including them in the breeder’s lines or showing program. In today’s show ring, the level of competition is extremely competitive so not every dog turns out to be those few special dogs that a breeder finds will compliment their breeding program. These available dogs and older puppies are healthy, well socialized, should be housebroken, crate trained and, have some degree of training. They are wonderful dogs for families who would like to skip the sleepless nights that come with raising a youngster puppy.
See Breeders Referral page (under construction) too for links to member’s sites. They may also have litters but have not posted on site.
