We are Kennel Club Breeders of Pure Bred Labrador Retrievers.
In October 2018 the government in England introduced a new law about certain activities involving animals which is called the The Animal Welfare (Licensing of Activities Involving Animals) (England) Regulations 2018. Breeding dogs is one of the activities covered by the Regulations, and they place a legal obligation on dog breeders to meet certain conditions in order to protect the welfare of puppies and their parents.
In accordance with this stringent LEGAL legislation I can confirm that Nook on Lyne Labradors hold a 5 Star License with Carlisle City Council and our License Number is M:008182. Licensed Breeders are given a star rating, depending on whether they meet the minimum or higher standards. Having been awarded a 5 Star Licence means that we meet the higher welfare standards which in turn helps potential puppy buyers know that we are doing more to make sure your puppies and their parents are happy and healthy.
We are delighted to announce that Honey our stunning fox red shade of yellow girl has a planned litter for approximately 2nd November and her pregnancy has now been confirmed.
Honey has the most amazing temperament, she has the most loving gentle nature and is a pleasure to own. Her sire is a working dog and her pedigree shows a number of Field Trial Champions including Drakeshead.
Honey is Extensively Health Tested and has 21 CLEAR Health Tests. She is CLEAR of 16 genetic conditions commonly found in the Labrador Retriever. She had a CLEAR BVA/KC/ISDS eye test on 25th May 2021, hips 3/2 and 0/0 elbows.
As with all of our girls she has a bespoke health testing package far superior to standard Kennel Club Recommendations in respect of both Joint Assessment and DNA.
We work extremely closely with The PupScan Project who are supported by a panel of highly respected and highly skilled Human & Veterinary Orthopaedic Specialist Consultants in respect of the quality of the hip and elbow joints. Analysis X-Ray images were taken of Honey's Hips and Elbows by our vet in a much more natural state, without traction, showing the whole hip and elbow complex thus allowing for a FULL assessment of the joints. These images identified by her microchip number were then passed onto the X-Ray referral team of Specialists to assess her images in detail and provide comprehensive reports setting out their findings. We were clearly over the moon that they confirmed Honey was suitable to be included in our breeding programme at Nook on Lyne Labradors with Normal Joints, No evidence of genetic disorders and No Contraindications to Breeding being reported.
Rogan the Sire who we know personally is a remarkable dog, dark fox red shade of yellow in colour he has an absolutely amazing kind temperament with a a super, gentle nature. His pedigree also shows Field Trial Champions & Winners. Rogan is also Extensively Health Tested and has 19 CLEAR Health Tests. He is CLEAR of 16 genetic conditions commonly found in the Labrador Retriever, he had a CLEAR BVA/KC/ISDS eye test on 25th May 2021 and CLEAR Hips 2/0 & Elbows 0/0. Please see my Gallery on my Champdogs webpage for photos of this stunning boy, you will find a link to this webpage on Our Dogs Page on this Website.
The ethos of any of our breeding involves dedicating an incredible amount of time & expense with the aim of breeding ethically & responsibly to pass on most importantly superb health to all of our puppies together with the desirable qualities & traits of looks, temperament & confirmation.
WE ARE THEREFORE ABSOLUTELY THRILLED THAT AS A RESULT OF BOTH THE SIRE ROGAN AND THE DAM HONEY BEING EQUALLY MATCHED WITH THEIR EXCEPTIONAL LEVEL OF IMPECCABLE CLEAR DNA HEALTH TESTING, IT IS GUARANTEED THAT ALL PUPPIES IN THIS LITTER WILL NEVER BE AFFECTED BY THE 16 DNA TESTED CONDITIONS DURING THEIR LIFETIME NEITHER WILL THEY BE CARRIERS OF THE FAULTY GENES ASSOCIATED WITH THE TESTED CONDITIONS.
Finally, the best and most notable aspect of our bespoke health testing package is the use of The PupScan Project's Ultrasound service subject to the availability. By using this diagnostic ultrasound technology, it will be possible for Orthopaedic Specialists to evaluate puppies at approximately 6 weeks of age to confirm normal healthy hip joint development before they leave for their new homes at 8/9 weeks. The PupScan Project are working closely with the University College of Dublin in the fields of genetics and environment and the IKC to understand the life events of our beloved dogs that may result in poor joint formation and as a result of this awareness we can progress and improve the health and welfare of dogs.
Puppies are born and reared in our home, they are started on a worming programme at 2 weeks old and are wormed every 2 weeks with panacur, they are weighed daily for the the first 2 weeks to ensure adequate daily weight gain, then weekly until 8 weeks. They are microchipped at 6 weeks and vet checked between 7 and 8 weeks at which time they will be given their first vaccination.
The first 16 weeks of a puppies life are crucial for learning & development. With this in mind we have designed a puppy development room that allows for this window of opportunity for puppies to learn both human and canine socialisation and stimulation skills, play and learning about boundaries of behaviour.
They will be weaned onto Royal Canin Starter Mother & BabyDog. This puppy food is highly recommended by vets due to the amount scientific research behind developing this quality food ensuring puppies have the best start in life.
They will be familiar with a crate and have some good whistle recall before they leave at 8/9 weeks old.

A Kennel Club Registration Certificate

Deciding to buy a puppy is an extremely exciting time and your puppy will provide you with endless fun & enjoyment. As it is a huge commitment we just ask that you take some time to look fully at our Website www.nookonlyne.co.uk
this will allow you to gather as much information as possible about us, our breeding ethos and our dogs also we have a Champdogs Webpage for your information.
If you are interested in owning a puppy from Honey's fox red shade of yellow litter then please get in contact by email for a Puppy Expression of Interest Form which asks for details of yourself and the lifestyle you are able to offer a potential puppy.
We like to follow up with a WhatsApp Video Call for a really informal chat whereby you can ask me any questions you may have and vice versa.
If after making contact you would like to secure a puppy from Honey's litter a £300 non refundable deposit/holding fee will be required only once the puppies are born. Proof of ID & address will be required when a deposit is taken.
Weekly WhatsApp video calls will be made to new owners individually in order that they can see the puppies growing and developing over the weeks prior to their first visit. There will be 2 visits available, one to choose your puppy at 6 weeks and one to collect your puppy at 8 weeks old.
We adhere to "The Puppy Contract" which was developed by the Animal Welfare Foundation and the RSPCA and was designed to encourage responsible breeding. It also ensures that buyers have all of the information they need to make an informed decision when buying a puppy from us.
You will be supplied with proof of our identity, had sight of a copy of our license and Honey will be scanned in your presence showing her Microchip Number matches all documentation. In addition your puppy will be scanned in your presence and you will be shown the puppy is registered to us as the breeder before the puppy is transferred into your name as the new owner. Before you leave with your puppy you will be given The Puppy Contract Information Pack and asked to read the guidance notes
designed to protect new puppy owners by ensuring that you have been given/shown all the information a responsible breeder should supply.
By following this process together with our own requirements for a Puppy Expression of Interest Form to be completed we are able to demonstrate the level of care and attention that Nook on Lyne Labradors have put into breeding puppies with the best chance of being happy and healthy and ensuring the best outcome for a Puppy's future.
