Dear Visitor to Deep Run Retrievers website,

Welcome. We are open.

We are still working hard here at Deep Run to breed and raise some exceptional Labrador Retriever puppies for you.

Our excellent, experienced staff is still working every day to provide safe and clean housing, top quality Purina Pro Plan foods, and the socialization, health care, exercise and training to help provide our pups with the foundation to become exceptional pets and companions for you. We are adhering closely to COVID-19 guidelines. We are maintaining social distance from each other, washing our hands frequently, and staying at home when we are not at work.

All interaction with our valued customers will be by appointment only, so we can be safe for everyone. Staffed office hours are currently 8 am-12 pm Monday-Saturday. Please be patient.

We are still open for Boarding and Training. We will do your petís dropoff and pickup outside in front of our office, and maintain appropriate social distance from you. We will talk with you on the phone about your dogís needs and progress, and provide videos, if appropriate. We are accepting reservations for current and future puppies, as described on our website. We are only currently accepting reservations for customers who are within driving distance of our kennel. The immediate future for airline travel is too uncertain to make any commitments to get a pup shipped to you. As soon as this changes, we will adjust accordingly. Please call and ask if you have questions.

Our Breeding Services continue as normal. Dr Giroux can provide in house progesterone testing with a one hour turn around time by appointment 7 days a week We can help with timing your female whether for breeding to one of our sires or one of your choosing. We are still collecting and shipping chilled semen from your dog or one of ours.

I am grateful to my conscientious employees for keeping the faith and following the rules in this challenging time. Without them, we could not continue to provide our normal top quality services.

If we can provide services for you and your current or a future pet within the guideline set by our Governor, please contact us.

Phyllis Giroux DVM, owner.
