    Looking for a new puppy, any recommendations?
    Has anybody heard or know anything about Nor Cal Labs?
    Thanks

    Good places to peruse litters. Especially if willing to widen the search out of state. Litters advertised in the above classifieds are predominantly from parents with health clearances and from decent hunting proven pedigrees, and often times from very proven parents.
    Hunting lab pedigree is great because you can see and research the litter pedigree, and see parents' health clearance test results.

    Be careful when looking at litters on bookface. Often there are a LOT of litters advertised there where little to no thought or effort has been put into them, parents without health clearances, let alone proven with hunt test or FT titles, and yet they sometimes ask as much or near as much as I did for FC AFC x MH pups.

    At least demand to see OFA, eyes and genetic defect clearance results if they are not upfront about them in the ad.
    I wouldnt give a second look to any litter ad that doesn't show pedigree and list clearance test results in the ad.
