Natural Rearing Philosophy and Benefits

Our philosophy toward canine health begins with proper nutrition.   A HEALTHY animal, whether a high performance dog or a family’s adored pet, is the basis for ensuring a satisfying and successful relationship between owner and dog.  Mining Camp Labrador’s puppies are naturally reared.  This means they are fed a raw, natural diet that does not contain grains or other foods that are not species appropriate--ie, like the wild wolf eats.  Also, our vaccination schedule is radically different than most breeders since we believe that vaccinations carry very real health hazards and are not to be administered without extreme caution.  We do not use chemical wormers, pesticides or heartworm poisons as these chemicals can and do create serious health issues in puppies and dogs. Some of the benefits of Natural Rearing (as compared to kibble fed and highly vaccinated dogs) are:

-- Long, happy lives free of chronic disease with minimal need for veterinarian support

-- No body odor

-- No bad breath

-- Strong healthy gums and teeth, with no need for costly teeth cleaning

-- Beautiful coats free of allergins

-- Ease of training because the dog is not hyped up on carbohydrates from kibble

-- Much less doggy poop!!

               

     

Our Adoption Process

Because we receive many inquiries, we find it very helpful if you, the prospective puppy owner, could tell us a little about your family and lifestyle.  If you are interested in adopting one of our puppies, please let us know first by phone call or email.  After a short conversation, we will ask you to  complete and return our puppy adoption application.  Once we have received your application, we will contact you for an on site interview to meet our Labrador Retriever family.  If after the visit both parties agree that adoption is likely, we will either add you to our waiting list for a future litter or accept a deposit for the current litter.  For current litters, we will encourage you to visit the pups to enhance their socialization.  At about 7 weeks of age, we temperament test our pups in order to match them to appropriate owners.  We typically send pups home with their new owners not earlier than 8 weeks of age.  Our puppies are potty trained to a doggie door prior to going to their new homes.  All puppy parents are OFA and CERF certified and most are either AKC champions or show pointed.
