Got our 1st lab 3 years ago he’s now her service dog and I’m picking up new puppy tomorrow couldn’t be more excited. Jack is great to work with. If your gonna get a lab. Jack’s your professional you want
Our Millie was one of Josie and Hunter’s puppies from May ’18. She is ~4 months old now and is the light of our lives! She is smart as a whip, taking to command training, potty training, leash training, crate training, and all of the like just fast as could be! Her temperament is just perfect, and we CONSTANTLY are getting stopped on the street, and complimented on how stunningly beautiful she is! We could not be happier with the caliber of puppy, and with our entire experience at Silver Creek Labs. Millie’s pedigree speaks for itself, health and aesthetics alike, and working with Jack was very pleasant, easy, and effective! Jack runs his business very professionally, but makes sure that the process of picking your puppy is very personal, too. I do not have a single negative thing to say about any aspect of getting a pedigreed lab through Silver Creek, and it is the only place I would recommend to anyone else!
We picked up our puppy three weeks ago and he’s an outstanding dog. Settled immediately into our home. He’s calm and is very bright. At 11 weeks he knows sit, down and stay (for a solid 15 seconds). Jack is very easy to work with and his puppies are beautiful.
Overall a decent option for a lab puppy. The purchasing process was relatively easy, but there were some issues related to health and communication. I’m happy with my puppy, now that I have her. She’s beautiful and has adjusted to home life really well.
Frustrations: Jack is a nice guy, but does not initiate communication like he says he will. Any information about the puppy’s birth, photos, progress, or pick-up arrangements was initiated by me. Unlikely to return your call or check his phone, but will respond to e-mails.
My puppy came home with ear mites and a digestive infection. Easily diagnosed by a vet and treated with low-cost anti-biotics. But not ideal for the first two weeks home.
Reasonable cost. Okay website.
Hope this helps!
Found out today that my 16 month old lab from this kennel has arthritis in his elbow. Limps like an old man. Really sweet dog but pretty disappointed with this diagnosis on such a young dog. Elbow displasia.
