Both parents of our puppies are on the premises and available for viewing.
Our puppies will have contact with all of us from their date of birth until you take them to their forever home, making them very people friendly pets.
We start our puppies on a De-worming Schedule at 2 weeks of age and continue de-worming every 2 weeks.
When our puppies are mature enough to start eating puppy food, we feed them 4Health Puppy Food made by Diamond Pet Foods and available only at Tractor Supply. Our Labs eat 4Health Dog Food and we highly recommend it.
At 6 weeks of age our puppies will visit our Veterinarian’s Office for a Health Exam and their first shots.
They will be fully weaned at about 7 to 8 weeks old and will then be available for pickup at 8 weeks old. We provide a "New Puppy Pac" with each puppy consisting of a bag of puppy food, some information about the puppy with some dos and don’ts, Veterinarian paperwork, AKC registration paperwork, a copy of both parents Pedigree, a receipt, Bill of Sale etc.
We have a Puppy Pickup Weekend shortly after the puppies are 8 weeks old when you can pick a time to come out to Backyard Labs and pickup your new puppy. This will usually be the Weekend after they are 8 weeks old. Puppy Pickup Weekend has proven to be a big hit with our new owners, and it is better for the puppies to all leave on the same day with hopefully not just 1 or 2 left behind.
The cost of one of our AKC Registered Labs is $700. A $250 deposit is required in advance to hold your puppy. Litter Picks Are Done when Deposits Are Received. Additional pictures of any particular puppy can be sent upon request. Deposits can be paid through PayPal, Venmo, or with Cash. Use the Buy Now Button below to pay your deposit with PayPal. Cash is accepted on Pickup Day for the remaining balance after the Deposit. We provide a PayPal Payment Button (Buy Now) below to pay your Deposit for your convenience. You will receive an emailed receipt for your paid deposit.
We understand that on occasion someone may need to pick up their new puppy a few days after the typical 8-week-old pickup day. If you need us to board your new puppy for you for up to 10 days past the Puppy Pickup Weekend, we provide that service for our new owners after they have paid in full for their new puppy. The cost of this service is $10 per day and is payable in advance.
We will take return of one of our puppies, But no refund will be issued. We only do this for the benefit of the puppy, and we take on the responsibility of caring for the puppy and finding the puppy a proper home all at our expense.

Why Backyard Labs ?
Molly and Roscoe as Puppies
Many of you may be wondering where we got our name, Backyard Labs. Well, many large dog breeders look down upon small breeders because we aren’t as big as they are. We don’t have nearly as many litters each year as they do and therefore we don’t offer as many puppies each year to new owners like you as they do. So, as an insult to the small breeder, we are called “Backyard Breeders.” They may have a larger quantity of puppies to sell each year, but we believe that we offer better quality. You see, our AKC registered Labrador Retrievers are a part of our family and because of this; our AKC registered puppies are also a part of our family, until they become a part of yours. We are proud to be small “Backyard Breeders” and so we decided to celebrate that by using it in our name. We believe that our puppies are simply better. Our puppies are loved by our family and they are taken very good care of from birth until they become a part of your family. Our puppies are more social with people because the family, including our Grandchildren, interact and play with them daily. And we may even cry a little when they leave our home to go to yours. So there you have it. We are proud to be small and we’re proud to be Backyard Labs and we hope that you and your family will consider us when it's time for you to add one of these amazing animals to your family.
