Kennel occasionally has a started/finished dog for sale, and we are
always willing to take orders for a started/finished dog out of a
specific breeding or upcoming litter. Many questions/concerns can arise
about purchasing a started/finished dog. Our Kennel will attempt to
answer any and all questions you may have. The following may address
some of those questions.
1.) Pricing: Our
pricing structure for started/finished dogs are our Rookie, Junior and
Professional programs. All pricing below includes all costs our Kennel
may encounter while your dog is with us (including but not limited to
puppy price, food, veterinary expenses and birds). The price does not
include shipping or transportation costs that the owner may encounter
if he/she is not able to physically pick up his/her dog when the dog is
ready to go home. (See Shipping.)
Rookie: 6-12 months of age ($4,000): Basic obedience, introduction to
birds, started on retrieving drills. The dog will be ready to finish
and fine tune his/her hunting skills under your direction. This
is NOT a finished gun dog at this point!
Junior: 12-18 months of age ($6,000): Rookie skills enhanced. In
summary, the dog will be able to hunt with you, and generally will be
prepared to compete for his/her Certified Pointing Labrador title.
Note; this price will not include trialing your dog for his/her
Certified Pointing Retriever title, you must be enrolled in the
Professional program to earn the title under our care.
Professional: 18-24+ months of age ($8,000): All of the above skills are
enhanced and the dog will have his/her Certified Pointing Retriever title prior to pick up.
The dog will have his/her Certified Pointing Retriever title at
this point. After the final fee of $8,000 is paid the customer
will then be transferred to a monthly invoice/contract with our
trainers at their current rates and will continue training to the level
desired by the customer.
Deposit: The deposit for any of our three pricing structures is the
full puppy price that our Kennel is charging. If you are getting a
Rookie, the remaining balance is due at the time the dog is picked up.
If you are getting a Junior dog, at 9 months of age a total of $4,000
must be paid and the remaining balance is due at the time the dog is
picked up. If you are getting a Professional dog, at 9 months of age a
total of $4,000 must be paid, at 12 months of age a total of $6,000
must be paid, and the remaining balance is due at the time the dog is
picked up. If you are getting a Finished dog, the same
deposit/payment schedule is in place as a Professional dog, then you
will be billed monthly per our trainers current rates.
Please contact our
Kennel for other questions you may have and to schedule the breeding,
color, and sex you desire for your started/finished dog. Please
note, due to our current extremely busy schedule (children's sports
schedule), and kennel space, we will only be subconsulting this service
out to our highly qualified trainers, and we will not be doing the
