Litters planned

Mekoro Labradors are very pleased to announce the approval of a Breeding Licence under the new Animal Activities Licencing Regulations 2018. Please be advised that any puppy being sold or re-homed without its mother present and/or without the breeder having a licence number provided by the council is potentially breaking the law. Which is why we are so very happy to promote the new Breeding Regulations as a step forward against battling the poor welfare conditions many breeding dogs succumb to. For more information on this legislation and what breeders have to adhere to please visit: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/animal-activities-licensing-guidance-for-local-authorities

Our breeding aims to produce Labradors that are sound and kind in temperament but remain working dogs at heart. Additionally, intelligence and natural ability are key within our breeding, so the puppies have the potential to compete in working tests and field trials, as well as working as a peg or picking up dog.

At Mekoro Labradors we do not breed from all our bitches every year, nor do we have any more than 2 litters in one year. Therefore, the demand for our puppies is quite high. We are strict in our criteria for new owners and as such we will only allow potential owners to visit the puppies from 3.5 weeks of age. We prefer our puppies to be placed in country homes with owners that are active outdoors as a minimum. Owners that will undertake structured training such as obedience, agility or gundog work will be preferred over purely pet homes. However, all homes will be considered but new owners will be chosen on what we deem to be the best home available.

Sparra's consistent trialling career is evidence of his natural game finding ability, a trait inherited from his excellent lineage. 

Tess has produced high calibre offspring that are both in working pet homes and competing in Field Trials.

     

Both parents are extensively health tested for breeding (see above information or visit the dog’s individual pages). Each puppy will be hereditary clear of CNM, PRCD-PRA and SD2 as both the parents are either clear through heritage or DNA testing. More information regarding these diseases that affect Labradors can be found on: http://www.laboklin.co.uk/laboklin/GeneticDiseases.jsp 

This litter are priced at £1200 each.
