THIS IS BAYLEIGH

She has been part of our family for more than two years.
She is a pure-bred, yellow labrador retriever. She and the sire of her pups, Chief, are registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC)
and have been screened for the health problems most commonly associated with her breed. (See health detail on each parents 'About...' page.)

Bayleigh is a well-trained, off-leash dog that enjoys nothing more than chasing and catching a frisbee.
She and her puppies live in our home and are doted on daily by the six human members of her pack.

WHAT MAKES A GREAT DOG?

Just like people, all dogs are different. Each dog is a unique combination of the talents and traits inherited from their parents but they are also greatly influenced by their own life experience and environment. Puppies are a little like the proverbial box of chocolates - if a chocolate could be trained - but there is a lot you can do to increase the likelihood of finding the right dog for you.

Picking the right breed of dogs is the first step. The Labrador Retriever has been the most popular breed in the U.S. for 26 years straight for good reason. It is a gentle, intelligent, friendly, even-tempered breed with a strong desire to please.

So now you have decided on a lab. What make one lab better than another? Even within a breed that is predisposed for certain traits, you can maximize the traits you prefer by being selective in the parentage of your puppy. Choosing a puppy bred from a dog with the characteristics you prefer will, of course, increase the likelihood that the puppy will be similar.

Because purebred dogs - by definition - come from a smaller gene pool than mixed-breed dogs, there are potential health issues assciated with all breeds. A reputable breeder will avoid breeding from the same family gene pool and they will test their prospective parents for health conditions to which the breed is known to be suseptible. You can GREATLY lessen the chance that your purebred dog will struggle with health problems later in life by confirmng that the parents are free of any markers for those conditions now.

Once you have found the right breed and the right parents, then take some time to get to know the litter and the specific little guy or girl that seems just right for you!

WHY WE BRED BAYLEIGH

There are many reasons why we chose to breed Bayleigh but there were really two that first led us to consider it. On our journey to find the right dog for our family - once we narrowed our choice to a lab - we really struggled to find well-bred lab puppies in the Atlanta area. In fact, we finally found Bayleigh at a breeder about a 2-hour drive away. And, because we selected Bayleigh weeks before she was ready to be separated from her mother and siblings, we had to make that trip twice.

Our second motivation was cost. After we had done our homework and learned the differences between different breeders and their dogs, we found that puppies of parents like Bayleigh and Chief, bred with the best care, environment, and socialization started around $1500 and went as high as $2500.

We just don't believe that you shouuld have to go that far or pay that much for a healthy, well-bred labrador retreiver puppy.
