I am new to the forum and was hoping you could all give me some feedback. I am from Western New York and searching for a breeder as far as Northern PA for male or female lab puppy that I wish to train as my mobility service dog. I will be training the dog for 2 years with a formal service dog agency, but I have only contacted one breeder and got a brush off by no returned email or phone call. I would be looking for a puppy ready as early as this August - October or then I would wait until Spring/ Summer 17. I know waitlists fill fast and puppies can be reserved sometimes a year in advance, so I understand the need to get on those lists and wait which is not a problem. I know puppies aren't an exact science with breedings taking either. Could you shed some light on this ? Helpful positive feedback requested. Thanks in advance.
