Puppy Cost or Price
Puppy Cost ranges between $1500-$2000, depending on the litter, parentage, etc. A $300 deposit is due once pups are born to hold a puppy for you.
All puppies purchased from Dawson Labs are sold on Limited Registration unless otherwise agreed upon and stated in the contract. We do place a few select pups in show/breeding/performance and on some litters, we will give a discount for guardian homes. If interested, please email me for details on how this works.
There is no 100% guarantee that any puppy will be free of health problems. We take great care in evaluating the health and soundness of our Labradors and the studs we choose for our litters. Even two parents who are free of hereditary diseases can produce a health problem from time to time. Screening reduces the chance of problems. All puppies will be up to date on vaccinations, wormed, and a health record provided. We also provide you with a puppy packet that contains a pedigree, pictures of parents, and copies of parents’ health clearances.
Pups will be ready to leave between 7 and 9 weeks of age. We reserve the right of the first pick of all our puppies. However, all the puppies are special and we do our best to match a suitable puppy with your family based on our conversations. Whenever possible, we will allow you to choose your puppy out of a select few to suit your lifestyle. And if one catches your eye, we will do our best to make that match if possible.
We do ship our puppies, for an additional charge of $350.00. We provide a crate for shipping, health check-up by the vet before the flight, and a quick flight from the Kansas City airport to almost anywhere in the USA.
You can be assured that your future family companion will be well socialized. The pups are raised in our home learning to live with normal household noises. They will be socialized with our adult dogs, as well as our family and friends. The importance of socialization while at our home, and later at yours, can be read here. Our puppies are also exposed to early neurological stimulation and they have experienced 7 surfaces (carpet, gravel, sand, etc.) by 7 weeks of age.
We recommended that our puppy families do not spay or neuter their new puppy until after one year of age. Information about long term health risks and benefits can be read here. If you have any questions or concerns, we ask that you discuss this with us prior to setting up the appointment with your vet.
