Wassookeag Retrievers of Maine

April 24, 2013 – 07:47 am

WASSOOKEAG RETRIEVERS in Dixmont, Maine focuses on producing quality, versatile Black, Yellow and Chocolate Labradors and Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers keeping health and temperament as top priorities. As dedicated Retriever breeders and trainers, we always strive to adhere to the AKC standard to retain correct conformation and uniformity within the breed. As a result, WASSOOKEAG puppies have gone on to become show champions, specialty winners, obedience, hunt test, flyball and agility title holders, therapy dogs, service dogs and always loving family companions.

All breeding stock is carefully screened for inheritable health problems and certified clear of hip and elbow dysplasia through x-rays submitted to the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) for evaluation. Their eyes are examined annually by a board certified veterinary opthamologist (CERF) and we utilize the OptiGen test to ensure that puppies are clear of PRA. We are proud to be recognized as AKC Breeders of Merit through the American Kennel Club.

PUPPIES Quality Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers and Black, Yellow and Chocolate Labrador Retriever puppies are available periodically throughout the year. Upcoming litters are posted on our "Puppies" page. Call or e-mail us to make inquiries or check on availability. Please fill out our puppy questionnaire to be added to our waiting list. Most of our puppies are sold in advance by reservation and we may require a deposit to hold a pup. Wassookeag Retrievers requires prospective owners to visit us prior to taking a puppy home. No purchase is finalized until this visit takes place.

All WASSOOKEAG RETRIEVER puppies are raised in our home where someone is always there with them. O

ur pups go through the early neurological stimulation exercises as outlined in the "Super Dog" program. They receive lots of socialization during these first critical weeks and are exposed to the daily hustle and bustle of normal household activity, children, older dogs, a variety of toys, bird wings, ramps to climb on, free romps around the house and time outside in their fenced puppy yard. They are temperament tested at 49 days of age using the Volhard Puppy Personality Profile.

A very select few are sold to established breeders who are seeking a particular pedigree to mesh with their lines.

HEALTH GUARANTEE WASSOOKEAG offers a three-year guarantee of functional soundness which displays the confidence we have in our breeding program. All puppies are vet checked, have dew claws removed, routine worming, current vaccinations and permanent Microchip ID.

"Block head."

That's perfectly normal (the loose skin,) and it's normal for him to have a blocky head. Actually...it's preferred. It's known as an "English" Labrador Retriever or a "Blockhead."
As long as you had him checked by a Veterinarian to determine his HW status, then HeartGard is a good chewable HW preventative.
