Sorry if this is a duplicate post, but I wasn't sure my other one posted. I am currently looking for an 8 wk old male or female lab to owner train as my mobility service dog. I am also planning on training him or her with a service dog agency. I live in Western New York and am looking for a breeder as far as Northern PA. I am looking for a litter that may be ready between August- October then if not would wait until Spring / Summer 17. I have contacted one breeder by email and phone with no success. Now I know breeding puppies is not an exact science as pregnancies fail etc, but I do know that waitlists can exceed a year for some breeders. I am willing to wait, but what more could i do to ensure a follow up contact from a breeder? Positive, helpful feedback requested. Thanks in advance.
