We typically issue AKC papers within six months of puppy pickup. This allows our staff to process papers in larger batches, thus avoiding mistakes and allowing us more time to spend with our Labs.
In the Covid era, it will probably take longer than six months to obtain your papers. AKC staff shortages, new employees and work from home have all impacted the speed and accuracy of our papers. We are not currently submitting paperwork applications until they return to a normal schedule. Please be patient. We have a system in place to ensure your papers will be delivered as soon as possible.for life.
