Accepting advanced reservations for males and females.
Our whole family delights in each puppy born at Creekside. Children play an integral role in the socialization and development of the puppies from the time of birth and assist in their care as well as making sure they get plenty of exercise! The puppies are included in all the happenings here on our 26 acres which produces a sound, highly confident, well-adjusted and happy puppy ready to go home and bond with you. We have found that early exposure to many different sensory stimuli within our safe environment affords the puppies an opportunity to develop a high level of confidence and adaptability.
One of our favorite activities to do as a family is to take the puppies on an outing down to the creek. We are blessed to have two creeks bordering our property, one of which is rocky and shallow, which allows us to introduce them to water at a fun and comfortable pace. This is a favorite activity for the puppies as well!
Your Creekside puppy gets LOTS of personalized love and care. We invest a great deal of time working individually with each puppy to make sure the transition to your home is as stress-free as possible for them and you.
We believe that providing high quality nutrition is extremely important in the growth and development of healthy puppies. Creekside puppies are given the best nutritional start possible because we feed a combination of raw and premium adult/puppy formulas with human grade ingredients. Good nutrition both during gestation and after birth is crucial to the foundational building blocks of health that will positively impact your puppy’s health for a lifetime.
The raw portion of their diet includes fresh all-natural chicken, beef, lamb, eggs and goat milk produced on our pesticide/chemical free pastures from animals not fed genetically modified ingredients (GMO), antibiotics or hormones.
Our babies are introduced to solid food beginning at 3 weeks of age and are allowed to follow a natural feeding schedule determined by the mother dog which typically results in them being completely weaned by 7 weeks of age.
After searching for a safer immunization program, we found the protocol by Jean Dodds, DVM, a widely respected immunological specialist, whose studies indicate that many diseases experienced in a pet’s life are the result of repeated assaults on the immune system from unnecessary vaccinations. We vaccinate at 8 weeks of age using the Intervet/Schering-Plough Nobivac Puppy DPV for Distemper/Parvo. This is a high titer vaccine which immunizes through the maternal antibodies and provides a higher level of protection from the viruses to the puppy at an earlier age. We recommend three doses at 4 week intervals.
We begin accepting reservations for puppies as soon as our anticipated matings are posted on the website. We do request a deposit at the time your reservation is placed to hold your position on the reservation list. Your deposit is held until the arrival of the litter so that your choice of color and gender can be verified.
If the litter did not produce your gender preference (and with Labradors the desired color black vs yellow), you have the options to swap gender or transfer to another litter - or the deposit will be returned to you. Deposits are nonrefundable after the litter is born. Cash payment of the balance is requested at the time of pickup or prior to air transport.
We prefer not to use cargo services for the transport of our puppies to their new homes. We offer a couple of other transport options if distance prevents driving to pick up your puppy.
1. We have a transporter who can travel with your puppy in the cabin of the plane from the Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) in Charlotte, North Carolina to the airport nearest you. This allows the puppy to ride in the cabin where they can be constantly monitored and reassured during the flight. Cost for this option varies depending on location in the USA (plus the price of a roundtrip ticket): $350 for eastern United States, $450 for central United States and $550 for western United States. We supply the carrier needed for the transport.
2. We will meet you at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport (CLT) in Charlotte, North Carolina for the puppy to be carried in the cabin with you. Cost for this option is $100 (plus the price of your roundtrip ticket). In addition, you must purchase a soft airline approved carrier for under your plane seat.
