Thank you for your interest in a SecretWinn Labrador Retriever. We only plan a breeding when we want something for ourselves. Our breeding’s are carefully researched and well planned for the future of SecretWinn Labradors with the hopes of improving each generation. All of our Labradors have the appropriate health screenings which include DNA genetic clearances, OFA Hip, Elbows, Heart ECHO cardiograms and Eyes certified yearly by a Board-certified Ophthalmologist. The health clearances, temperaments, soundness, quality, trainability of both the dam and sire are of the upmost importance to us when considering a breeding. Our hope is to always move forward bettering the breed and maintaining the integrity of the Labrador.
All of our puppies are whelped and nurtured in our home. We convert our living room into a wonderful whelping room, which is a comfortable environment for our Mamas, puppies and myself. Each puppy receives lots of love, attention, playtime and exposure to different toys, sounds and surfaces. Our puppies will be well socialized, have had complete health examinations at 7 weeks old, de-wormed, first vaccinations and be microchipped before going to their new home. Each puppy will be temperament tested, begun crate training and potty trained to pine pellets. We follow Pat Hastings, Rules of Seven to ensure that each puppy is ready to grow up into an outgoing, well developed and confident adult Labrador.
Our goal is to make the transition from our home to yours as smooth as possible.
If you are interested in a SecretWinn puppy, please copy & email us the completed application.
This brief application is the first step in ensuring that our puppies go to a selected home
that will provide a safe, loving and wonderful environment for the lifetime of the puppy.
