Step Two: Interview
After we have received a request we will arrange an agreeable time to talk about your
needs (when you plan to add a puppy to your home, preferences regarding color/sex, etc.)
and to review your specific plans to raise and care for a Labrador retriever.
First time pet owners are as welcome as the "seasoned" experienced owner.
The topics we like to cover during the interview focus upon your commitment / ability to
devote the time and resources required to properly raise a dog from "puppyhood" through
their entire life span. The value of the personal interview for us and you is to get a good
"feel" for each other in determining if we have a good "fit".
Step Three: Commitment / Reservation
After we have determined that we have a "fit" … you will be placed on our waiting list.
