To promote responsible breeding, all of our puppies are sold on a Limited Registration
basis. Limited Registration means that the dog is eligible for registration with the American Kennel Club, however, any offspring
produced by the dog would not be eligible to be registered with the AKC. This does not mean that the dog is of lesser quality.
It just means that they are ineligible to enter conformation shows or produce registered offspring. They are eligible to enter
other AKC events such as hunt tests, agility, and obedience trials.
Most puppies purchased from Drakebay Labradors are purchased as companion dogs by
owners who have no interest in breeding or showing; therefore, limited registration will have no bearing on these dogs and
their owner. However, should an owner decide to become involved with showing and/or breeding in the future, limited registration
will be a factor. When and if certain necessary criteria are met by the dog and owner, Drakebay can remove the limited designation
and allow full registration of the dog after the dog is more than two years of age.
