CHOCOLATE AND BLACK LABRADOR RETRIEVERS
Field Trial Champion Blood Lines and Family Companions
Welcome to Silver Bow Labradors. We have been successfully breeding Labradors for over thirty years. We specialize in Chocolate and Black Labs. We are located in Washington State on Thirty-Eight beautiful acres, where all of our pups are born and raised. We imprint our puppies from birth and handle them every day, several times a day. They love to snuggle. We handle all of our pups like they are going to homes with children. Silver Bow pups are introduced to new variables and environments, when they are ready, in order to grow their confidence and development.
Silver Bow Labrador pups are bred for health first! We only breed dogs that are 0FA clear of any hip dysplasia and CERF clear of any eye defects. Only then, will they be considered for our breeding program. Our dogs are clear of PRA, EIC, CNM and DILUTE by parentage. Meaning, the parents are not carriers thus the puppies are genetically clear. We are breeding intelligent, problem solving, thinking dogs in our kennel. These dogs are hard charging in the field and able to turn it off in your home. This is important! We do not breed hyper Labradors... Our dogs have exceptional hunting lines that are tried and true. They have the lineage and proven performance to back up what you need them to do in the field!
Our pups stop traffic with their looks!! We believe that it is important to have a pup that you can be proud of, but looks are nothing if you don't have great genetics! And we do. That's why we make sure that health is first in our breeding program.
Silver Bow pups are AKC registered and come with a full hip and eye guarantee. We want you to feel as confident as we do about what you are getting from our kennel. Our guarantees on all of our puppies apply only to the original purchaser.
AKC Registration and Breeding your dog: All of our puppies come with AKC registration papers. We sell puppies with limited registration papers, which means you may not breed the dog. This does not limit your dog in anyway from participating in field trial events, agility or any other organized events.
If you are specifically looking for an animal for a breeding program we are always open to talking with Breeders and discussing our requirements for a full registration.
Silver Bow Labs has placed dogs all over the country. Our dogs have been used by professional hunters for many years. Our dogs are also used for antler retrieval, Search and Rescue as well as service animals and family companion dogs. We have been donating dogs for people with disabilities for many years. We have placed the first service dog in Lima, Peru that aids over 350 children with special needs. It is vital that puppies are temperament tested to make sure that the right pup goes to the right family. We are wonderful match makers here at Silver Bow!
Puppy Pick Day: A litter of ten puppies may all look the same but they are all different in personality. We tattoo our pups at five weeks and start watching their personalities. We spend lots of time with our puppies socializing them and introducing them to new things to see how they react. This has been a huge benefit to our clients because we can help you navigate the process of choosing a puppy. We've spent so much time with these little ones that we can tell you what their personalities are. We want you to have the best fit for your family and we want the puppy to be happy doing what God created it to do... (Hunting, SAR, Antler work, Therapy dogs, and Service work). There will be no other clients here while you are picking out your puppy. You will have the full facility at your disposal. You may bring the pups out and play with them with wings and toys to determine which puppy is the best fit for you and your family, and of course we are here to help! Our facility is 100% ADA accessible for our clients.
I Want A Puppy From Silver Bow! How Do I Get Started? We require a $250.00 Non Refundable deposit to hold your place in line for a puppy. Your position for a pick in the litter is determined by when your deposit arrives. If we do not produce the color or gender of your choice, we will refund your deposit or let it ride on a future litter. The choice is yours. The full cost of the puppy is due the day of pick up and we require cash on the balance on the day of pick up. Puppies flying out of state need to be paid well in advance to shipping. Our breedings are carefully selected so if you are considering a Silver Bow Labrador please call us today. Not all of our breedings are listed... we do have some breedings that may not be advertised.
COST OF PUPPY: Our
litters are not all the same price. The cost is determined on the breeding
itself. (The pedigree of the animals being bred are considered, and if the
breeding was natural or if an artificial insemination, or surgical implant
were required). Also, the ability to reproduce the breeding. (Some breedings
are done with frozen semen with dogs that are exceptional and the breeding
may not be able to be done again). Rare breedings cost more.
Call for more information on the litters that are advertised.
