Both parents are extensively tested above most litters you see. As a result every puppy in this litter is guaranteed to be hereditary clear of all the above listed DNA tests .Health and temperament are most important to us .
The puppies will be born beside my bed and then moved into the kitchen where they quickly get use to all the household noises, that you would expect in a busy country farm house.
The puppies are being weaned onto fish4dogs .
Before leaving us at 8 weeks your puppy will have been given the best start in life and will be well socialised. He/she will have been on a very strict worming programme and treated with front line at 6 weeks to prevent fleas. The puppies will be microchipped at 6 weeks and vet checked as close to 8 weeks as possible.
Not only will the puppies be use to all the household noises but they will also get to experience our purpose built enrichment puppy room. This will give them the freedom to explore and play with plenty of space. Our Early Development Puppy Play area was created to support early stimulation and cognitive development in young puppies. Studies regarding early neurological stimulation in puppies have confirmed that one of the critical periods for canines to be stimulated is between 4 and 16 weeks of age. Research has shown that non-stimulated pups may become fearful of unfamiliar objects and will withdraw rather than investigate. Even well bred puppies with superior pedigree could grow up preferring the safe environment of their kennels/crates rather than the stimulating world outside, and may also be more difficult to train. We believe our Puppy Play Areas ,coupled with interesting puppy toys, introduces puppies to different textures, sounds, and stimulates their developing nervous systems. We understand the importance of raising stable, well adjusted and confident puppies. Exposing them to many different sounds and textures during their early weeks will give them a great head start.
Please feel free to contact with any other questions I haven’t already answered in my add . I am advertising this litter early to give families time To get to know me over the phone , in txt and when you view the puppies . I want to be able to keep in touch regularly over the next couple of months with everyone sending you updated photos and progress reports weekly rather then advertise when they are ready and only have limited conversation
‼️£300 NON refundable deposit/ holding fee is required to hold your chosen puppy ONCE THEY ARRIVE . Once you have left your deposit we will then update weekly with progress reports . Once the puppies are over 6 weeks you will be invited to come and view the puppies and at this stage chose which puppy you would like if you haven’t already done so and this will be done in order of deposits taken to make it fair for everyone . The puppies will leave us for their new homes with a puppy pack containing
vet check report
kc documents (‼️Endorsed‼️ )
Thank you for reading our advert and we look forward to hearing from you here at Sykehead and be able to keep you informed on progress along the way .

Labrador Buying Checklist
We highly recommend every buyer reads through the below advice when purchasing or rehoming a Labrador Retriever.
- View the animal in the place it was born and raised - check for genuine home environments if buying privately, or the quality of the breeders set-up if applicable.
- If viewing a puppy under 6 months, by law they MUST be seen with their mum.
- Make sure the animal's old enough to be rehomed. 8 weeks should be the earliest a puppy can be rehomed.
- By law, all dogs MUST be microchipped
Avoid Potential Scams
There are a number of red flags to look out for when purchasing a new puppy:
- Seller demands a deposit without allowing you to see the dog first - never send any money before meeting the animal in person
- Seller is reluctant to send you additional photos or videos
- Seller offers to deliver the dog/puppy
- Seller asks to meet in a mutual location
- Seller uses fake or stolen photos from the internet. Always carry out a "Google image search".
Although we have a number of automated systems in place to prevent scam and fraudulant adverts, these can never be 100% accurate and its important to use caution when buying online. We do not accept any responsibility for transactions between our users, especially when our safe buying advice is not followed.
