Copper Creek Labrador Retrievers Puppies

here is a general overview of what you get when you purchase a Copper Creek Labrador Retriever.
  • each one of our females and males we use have been put through genetic testing so we know we are producing health puppies for you and your family. we do not breed any dogs that are carriers or effected by any genetic issues.
  • each puppy is sent home with dewclaws removed, de wormed at 2 4 6 and 8 weeks, first set of shots and first vet check, parents pedigree, started on heart gaurd, and a puppy starter pack (starter bag of food, a toy with litter smell on it and a blanket) along with a copy of our contract.
  • we strive to give the best pups out there and we are confident in them that we send each pup home with a 30 month health guarantee. if anything is wrong health wise with the pup we will give you a new pup at the same price as the first one you bought.
  • each pup is handled from day one and exposed to lots of sights sounds and smells by eight weeks. 
  • our puppies are raised in home with us and are handled by adults as well as children and are around other dogs and cats.
here is what to expect when you bring a new puppy home 
  • adjustment can be stressful on these little guys and gals. depression not eating and some diarrhea is normal. if it persists for more then a couple days please contact your vet
  • you will need to make a potty schedule a good rule of thumb is every two hours some times more frequently
  • potty after wake up and after meal time 
  • there can be some crying and whimpering
  • when you buy a Copper Creek pup we are here for each new puppy parent for questions and concerns to help you navigate this crazy but super fun adventure!

Our Journey with Labs

I (Kelsey) have grown up with an array of dogs from Dachshunds to Great Danes and Irish Wolfhounds. i got my first lab at the end of high school. Jack was an amazing dog. i rescued him from a shelter he was the last of a litter of 8 found in a box behind a grocery store. i could not do anything wrong in his eyes and he was my everything. Travis and I trained and worked with Jack really hard. he loved to retrieve and hunt with us even though he hated gun shots. as he got older we found he had so many issues. from congenital issues to genetic issues. Jack lived to be 11 he lost his fight with caner right after his 11th birthday.

i did a lot of research knowing i didn't want anything else in my house but a lab. i found a handful of breeders across the country testing for a panel of genetic issues. so i dug and found Kim at Vikings and she tested all her dogs to get rid of any of the genetic issues in her kennel. we got Copper from her.

Shortly after Copper while mowing one summer day i watched one of the most heartless human acts i have ever seen. we live in the country and people dump dogs here all the time but i watched a person push a older in horrible shape male chocolate lab out of the side door of a mini van down from our house. i jumped into action and cleaned him up. Duke was in horrible shape from his coat to his ears to his teeth. i spend the entire summer cleaning him up and getting him to where he should be nice shiny coat. his ears were so infected it ate his eardrums into nothing. we gave him the best 2 years of his life. he passed away peacefully. since the rescue of Duke i took in rehabbed and re homed a number of lab and lab mixes Dexter being the last he will live out his life here per contract. he is retired and gets to do the things he loves swim and take long walks in the woods.

we have had some amazing dogs pass through our hands through the years and we couldn't be more fortunate to have the group we have now! with my background in animal health as well it really has helped to get a good group of both American (field bred) and English (show bred) Labs in our program.
