If you are traveling alone we do suggest a small crate.   We suggest this crate as it has an opening in the top to make it easy to get to the puppy if needed.  You will not need a crate if you have someone riding with you.

We do not accept checks on pickup day. So if you want to use a check you must pay the balance due by the time the puppy is six weeks old.

You must pay sales taxes on all puppies.
To help breeders comply with the law, IDOR offers the following guidance:
Tax is due when the animal is sold to a purchaser who will keep it as a pet.
Tax is due if an animal is picked up at the breeder's Illinois facility, even if it will be immediately taken out of state. 

When traveling with another person your puppy will do well in their lap or in the floor under their feet. We do suggest keeping the leash and collar on we will provide you with to help control the puppy on the ride home.

A small water bowl would need to be brought along with bottled water.  

​Small plastic bag in case the puppy has any accidents and needs to be cleaned up. 

Lysol wipes

Roll of paper towels

​We do suggest you to go straight home with the lab puppy.   Take them first to where you want them to go potty at your new home. Then inside the home after they have used the bathroom. 

We suggest that you have your insurance started one to two days before picking up.
