Puppy Selection Process
Preventative Health Care
Puppies dew claws are removed within 3-5 days of their birth. During the first three to eight weeks of age the puppies receive their first & second rounds of de-worming. The first round of vaccinations are performed after the puppies are 6 weeks of age. Your puppy's medical history will be provided to you in your puppy packet on the day of pick up.
We register each litter with the American Kennel Club.
Each puppy is registered with prepaid AKC limited registration.
A deposit of $300 secures your selection for your male or female puppy. After your deposit is received, you can enjoy photos and videos of your soon-to-be puppy on our website or Facebook page Retriever Ridge Labradors. The remaining balance is due when your puppy is 8 weeks old and is ready to be taken home. All balances need to be paid in full for final pick up.
Prior to mating, both the Sire & Dam have received health clearances on hips, elbows, eyes, exercise induced collapse (EIC), centronuclear myopathy (CNM), and degenerative myelopathy (DM). Retriever Ridge Labradors provides a one year health guarantee for your puppy on congenital diseases for hips, elbows, eyes, EIC, CNM & DM as well as a three day guarantee on contagious diseases. Proof of a veterinarian puppy check as well as microchip registration needs to be performed within 3 days of pick up for health clearances to apply.
