An oolalabs puppy comes to you much-loved.

And we provide each puppy whelped in our home with the following benefits of care.
 


Weekly Updates and 24/7 Visual Access to Your Puppy Under Development.
We keep - and share - a log of our puppies' progress. Here is the log for our last litter. We also offer a 24/7 Nursery Cam to all prospective owners ... providing full diclosure on all that transpires in our puppies' lives from the day after they are born. And, because new owners want to share what their new puppy looks like, we offer developmental photos every two weeks for each litter.

Behavorial Conditioning.
From day 0-21, oolalabs' puppies receive sensory/change-acceptance conditioning following Carmen Battaglia's Biosensor Protocol.

From day 22-48, oolalabs' puppies are conditioned to sleep in crates, potty outside and accept rapid changes in their environment while remaining calm and alert. We put teter-totters, toys, mazes, and numerous climbing obstacles in their play area and challenge them to accept and use these in their play. We also expose them to loud noises (drills, vacuums, banging pans, pop guns), music (like Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture), street noises - you name it - to condition the puppy to remain calm when exposed to loud sounds. (We want dogs who won't cower in a closet - or, worse, bolt and get lost - at the presence of fireworks, gunshots, and city traffic.) We also expose them, daily, to the types of behavioral conditioning implied in Volhard's Puppy Aptitude Test.

On day 49, we run each pup through the Volhard test: Our goal at oolalabs is to breed and condition for "perfect fours". Our desire is to deliver excellent service, assistant and companion dogs to the most devoted individuals and familes. Though show and field/hunt champions are in our lines, that is not our developmental area of concentration. If that is what you are after, contact us: we can refer you to the best of the best providers who concentrate their breeding programs on those areas.

Healthscreening.
At 7.5 weeks, your oolalabs' puppy will be fully examined by a veterinarian licensed in the state of California to confirm it is functionally in good health (heart, lungs, eyes, etc.). It will receive its first puppy vaccination, and you will receive a copy of the vet-industry-standard recommended vaccination guidelines (schedule). The puppy will also be tested/dewormed (as needed) at 4 and 6 weeks of age and confirmed worm-free at 7.5 weeks.

Note: All oolalabs' puppies are cleared by parentage (will never develop) for these genetic diseases, which are often found in labrador retrievers: Exercise Induced Collapse Disorder, Cystinuria (CY), Degenerative Myelopathy (DM), Uric Acid (Hyperuricosuria), Progressive Rod-Cone Degeneration-Progressive Retinal Atrophy (prcd-PRA).

Our breeding puppies destined for service-dog organizations will be further examined and tested, as follows: male puppies will be examined to ensure the puppy's testicles are fully descended at 7.5 weeks of age; and, since Maizey is a recessive carrier of the EIC-producing gene mutation, breeding puppies will be buccal swabbed at 6 weeks and confirmed EIC-clear (non-carriers) by the University of Minnesota before they are released.

Microchipping.
Our oolalabs' puppies are implanted with a universal-RFID microchip at 7.5 weeks of age, and owners will receive all paperwork - with instructions - to help register each puppy with the top US finding services. We highly recommend all dog owners microchip and register with at least three finding services (AKC Reunite, AAHA/Petkey, FoundAnimals) to ensure viable finders'-service coverage in the unfortunate event of a puppy's loss or theft.

Full Disclosure and Acknowledgement of the Dog-Purchaser's Rights - in writing - Under the Lockyer-Polanco-Farr Pet Protection Act. We support this legislation and offer the following reprint of Section 122190 - under joint signature - as part of every puppy buying contract :


Every pet dealer that sells a dog shall provide the purchaser at the time of sale, and a prospective purchaser upon request, with a written notice of rights, setting forth the rights provided for under this section. The notice shall be contained in a separate document. The written notice of rights shall be in 10-point type. A copy of the written notice of rights shall be signed by the purchaser acknowledging that he or she has reviewed the notice. The notice shall state the following:

A STATEMENT OF CALIFORNIA LAW GOVERNING THE SALE OF DOGS

The sale of dogs is subject to consumer protection regulations. In the event that a California-licensed veterinarian states in writing that your dog is unfit for purchase because it became ill due to an illness or disease that existed within 15 days following delivery to you, or within one year in the case of congenital or hereditary condition, you may choose one of the following:

(1) Return your dog and receive a refund of the purchase price, plus sales tax, and receive reimbursement for reasonable veterinarian fees up to the cost of the dog plus sales tax.

(2) Return your dog and receive a dog of your choice of equivalent value, providing a replacement dog is available, and receive reimbursement for reasonable veterinarian fees up to the cost of the dog, plus sales tax.

(3) Keep the dog and receive reimbursement for reasonable veterinarian fees up to 150 percent of the original purchase price of the dog plus sales tax on the original purchase price of the dog.

In the event your dog dies, you may receive a refund for the purchase price of the dog, plus sales tax, or a replacement dog of your choice, of equivalent value, and reimbursement for reasonable veterinary fees for the diagnosis and treatment of the dog, if a veterinarian, licensed in this state, states in writing that the dog has died due to an illness or disease that existed within 15 days after the purchaser obtained physical possession of the dog after the sale by a pet dealer, or states that the dog has died due to a congenital or hereditary condition that was diagnosed by the veterinarian within one year after the purchaser obtained physical possession of the dog after the sale by a pet dealer.

These fees may not exceed the purchase price of the dog, plus sales tax.

In order to exercise these rights, you must notify the pet dealer as quickly as possible but no later than five days after learning from your veterinarian that a problem exists.

You must tell the pet dealer about the problem and give the pet dealer the name and telephone number of the veterinarian providing the diagnosis.

If you are making a claim, you must also present to the pet dealer a written veterinary statement, in a form prescribed by law, that the animal is unfit for purchase and an itemized statement of all veterinary fees related to the claim. This information must be presented to the pet dealer no later than five days after you have received the written statement from the veterinarian.

In the event that the pet dealer wishes to contest the statement or the veterinarian's bill, the pet dealer may request that you produce the dog for examination by a licensed veterinarian of the pet dealer's choice. The pet dealer shall pay the cost of this examination.

In the event of death, the deceased dog need not be returned to the pet dealer if you submit a statement issued by a licensed veterinarian stating the cause of death.

If the parties cannot resolve the claim within 10 business days following receipt of the veterinarian statement or the examination by the pet dealer's veterinarian, whichever event occurs later, you may file an action in a court of competent jurisdiction to resolve the dispute.

If a party acts in bad faith, the other party may collect reasonable attorney's fees.

If the pet dealer does not contest the matter, the pet dealer must make the refund or reimbursement no later than 10 business days after receiving the veterinary certification. If the pet dealer has represented your dog as registerable with a pedigree organization, the pet dealer shall provide you with the necessary papers to process the registration within 120 days following the date you received the dog.

If the pet dealer fails to deliver the papers within the prescribed timeframe, you are entitled to return the dog for a full refund of the purchase price, including sales tax, or a refund of 75 percent of the purchase price, including sales tax if you choose to keep the dog. This statement is a summary of key provisions of the consumer remedies available. California law also provides safeguards to protect pet dealers from abuse. If you have any questions, obtain a copy of the complete relevant statutes.

This notice shall be contained in a separate document. The written notice shall be in 10-point type.

The notice shall be signed by the purchaser acknowledging that he or she has reviewed the notice. The pet dealer shall permit persons to review the written notice upon request.

NOTE: This disclosure of rights is a summary of California law. The actual statutes are contained in Article 2 (commencing with Section 122125 of Chapter 5 of Part 6 of Division 105 of the Health and Safety Code."
