Registered Labrador breeders in NSW Australia, Truebred Labradors, are members of Dogs NSW.
Also, Truebred have been Labrador breeders in NSW Australia since 1997 and mostly offer both black Labradors for sale and yellow Labradors for sale. Puppies normally go to their new families from when they are at least eight weeks of age.
Before we provide a few more details about our puppies, we want to clarify that a Labrador Retriever is the correct and proper name for a Labrador. It is NOT a cross-breed between a Labrador and a Golden Retriever. We receive a number of emails about this and just wanted to clarify.
Top 7 things you should get from your Labrador breeder
There are 7 things that I believe that you should be able to get, if you wish, from any Labrador breeder in NSW Australia. These include:
- hip-score test results for both puppy parents (should be below about 13);
- elbow test results for both puppy parents (should be below 3);
- PRA test results for both puppy parents (pups should not be affected);
- EIC test results for both puppy parents (pups should not be affected);
- pedigrees for both puppy parents (should be registered);
- the current vaccination certificate for your Labrador puppy (should be current and have atleast C3 vaccination); and
- the microchip registration transfer form (should have correct microchip number).
Obviously, some of these will not be available until after the purchase of a puppy.
IMPORTANT! Please note that there is a website named truebreds dot com and which are NOT me and also seems to me to be dodgy! The registration details for that domain are made private (see http://wa-com.com/truebreds.com), and many of the images (if not all) seem to be from other breeders websites. Also, there are no contact details, address details, etc on the website.
Our Puppy Update page will normally have details of puppies available. We try and post updates often.
Most of our Labrador puppies go to their new families in the Sydney, Newcastle, and Central Coast regions, with some going to the Mid North Coast and Far North coast regions. Some pups also go to homes throughout NSW and also interstate. Transport can be arranged if desired. This can include by road and/or by air. Please note that we do not export puppies. More details, including costs, for example, are available on our Labrador puppies for sale NSW page.
There are a few labrador health problems that are at higher risk with some puppies or from some breeders. Our puppy parents or breeding stock are tested and screened for various possible hereditary or genetic health issues. These include (for example) hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, Exercise Induced Collapse (EIC), and Progressive Retinal Atrophy (PRA).
If you are looking for cheap labradors for sale then we feel that this can be a ‘false economy’, as what you may save in the purchase price may be exceeded later on with health problems or associated Veterinarian fees. In addition to the stress etc. to the puppy owners, puppy, etc.
We hope that the above details and our website are helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us if any further details etc. are required in relation to our Labrador Retrievers.
Please note that our registered breeder kennel name is Truebred. Another Labrador breeder in NSW has used ‘truebred labradors‘ on their website. They have been asked to remove this, so they have changed it to ‘true bred labrador retrievers‘. So please be aware.
