Welcome to Barefoot Labradors of Killingworth
Barefoot Labradors specializes in AKC black, yellow and chocolate Labrador Retriever puppies for the family.
Located in Killingworth, Connecticut, we have been providing exceptional puppies to families in the Northeast since 1995.
Our English style labs are AKC, OFA, OFEL, CERF registered. They enjoy 12 wooded acres surrounded by Connecticut State Park and Killingworth Land Trust, and swim in lab-friendly Pond Meadow Brook.
We breed for sound health and good temperament. We raise our puppies in a home environment and socialize them through frequent handling and play.
From their third to 16th day, we give them a series of gentle neurological stimulation (The Bio Sensor Program) to improve cardio vascular performance, tolerance to stress and resistance to disease. Also, during the 8-weeks they are with us, they listen to National Public Radio (NPR).
We microchip all of our puppies to help in their return to you in the event they are lost or stolen.
All of our pups are examined by a Vet at 2-4 days and again at 6-weeks (1st immunization).
Our puppies go to their new families with immunization records, AKC Litter Pedigree Certificate, copies of their parents' OFA & CERF certificates, and general information about care and training.
They are sold with a limited AKC registration to help protect the breed from genetic faults. They come with a 30-month Health Guarantee for hip and elbow dysplasia, and hereditary defects of the eyes.
Pups from our litters have become service dogs for the deaf and physically disabled through the National Education of Assistance Dog Services (NEADS) West Boylston, MA.

Luna and her pups
Our litters are planned well in advance. Our puppies are sold to approved families that have been placed on our waiting
lists. Families are notified within a few days of the litter's landiing and are invited to a "Meet & Greet" Zoom meeting to see their pups at six weeks old. The puppies
go home when they are 8 weeks old.
Occasionally, we have older or retired labs to place to suitable homes.
If you would like more information about upcoming litters, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your preference of color and gender. Sorry, but we cannot respond to text or phone call requests for information. Only email inquiries, please.
