  • FALL BLACK MALE PUPPY SALE! We're giving you a spectacular deal by reducing the price of our older (3-month-old) black Lab male puppies by $300! We had an abundance of black male puppies this fall and, as of December 8th, we have only 2 black male pups left in Tanana's litter and 1 in Tal's litter. Is anything wrong with the puppies? No! Our supply was just greater than the demand. To make these puppies more salable, our trainers have put in several hours of basic obedience training into these pups, so they are learning to come to the word "here" on walks, "sit" on command, and they're being crate trained for about two hours at a time.
  • Colors and Genders Available: We currently have both male and female puppies available in all four colors: black, yellow, fox red and chocolate!
  • Winter Puppy Photos & Videos: Winter photo and video shoots are always a challenge. It has been snowing and raining here, so we haven't taken any photos or videos of the puppies in a couple of weeks. In order to get the shots, we have to place puppies in a wagon and cart them into the house where the lighting is better, and we don't want puppies to get cold and wet in the transport process. When the weather clears, we will be able to get more photos and videos. Thanks for your patience. (By the way, when we get a good, dry, powdery snow, we like to take the puppies on walks, so we'll try to get photos and videos then. They love the snow!)

Our Prices:

Our base prices are listed below, according to current demand for colors and genders. If and when first and second picks of a litter become available, we charge $100 more for 2nd pick and $200 more for 1st pick:

  • Black and yellow males are $1450.
  • Chocolate and red males are $1650.
  • Black and yellow females are $1700.
  • Chocolate and red females are $1900.

Reservations, Deliveries and Social Media

  • To Reserve a Puppy: If you're thinking about adopting a puppy and you'd like our help in recommending a litter that would best fit your needs, please complete our "Puppy Preference Form" (PPF), which is a questionnaire telling us what you're looking for in a dog. If you know you want to reserve a puppy in a specific litter right away, please complete our "Reservation Form" and send that to us with a photo of your $300 deposit check. You can locate both the PPF and the Reservation Form on our "Reservations, Guarantee, and Policies" page. Send either form to us at: info@mmkennels.com and we'll get back to you shortly with either a litter recommendation or our reservation confirmation letter. Remember that, when you reserve a puppy from us, you are reserving your picking order for a puppy in a specific litter and not necessarily a specific puppy (unless it's the only one of that color and gender in the litter). Most people will not know which puppy you are choosing until the designated puppy adoption day.
  • Two Frequently Asked Questions: 1) Can I pick out my puppy before the designated adoption date? Sorry, but no. Everyone reserves a picking order ahead of time and then, on adoption day, everyone chooses in the order of their reservations. 2) Can you send me a photo or video of the puppies still remaining in a litter? Sorry, but the answer is usually no again, based on the answer to the first question. We don't know which puppies are actually available until after everyone else chooses their puppies on puppy adoption day.
  • Shipments & Deliveries: Because we are located 4.5 hours north of Sacramento, many people prefer to have us transport puppies further south. By request, and for an additional fee of $140, we are often able to transport puppies to Westwood Park in Davis, California. We also ship puppies via airplane all over the continental United States, Alaska and Canada. (We no longer ship puppies to Hawaii, due to their difficult restrictions.)
  • Social Media: We invite you to follow us on Instagram and YouTube!
  • What supplies do we need for our new puppy? So many people ask us this question, we wrote a blog giving our advice. You can read our blog here.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Please visit our "Frequently Asked Questions" page and, hopefully, your questions will be answered there.

MMK Programs & Services:

BASIC OBEDIENCE & ADVANCED GUN DOG TRAINING: Find out more about training on our "training" page. You can also view clips of training videos on our "videos" page. (If you scroll down to the bottom of the videos page you can also view links to past litters of puppies for your viewing pleasure.)

STUD SERVICE: Please view our Stud Dog Breeding Sires page and contact us to discuss stud fees, canine dispositions, etc. The cost is $1,000.

STARTED DOGS: We don't have any started dogs currently available, but we have a couple in training. To find out more, please contact Pete (owner of MMK) at pete@mmkennels.com. Just FYI, most people get started dogs from us from one of two ways: 1) They purchase a puppy from us and bring him/her back to us to train or 2) They bring us their own personal dog for us to train.

SCENT DETECTION: Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), our current trainers are training so many dogs right now that we have temporarily suspended our canine scent detection training program until we can hire a new trainer.
