About Purchasing A Puppy

From Barnes' Puppy Love Kennels

Getting Started

You see how beautiful and adorable our puppies are here at Barnes’s Puppy Love Kennels and the next Questions are usually;

– How much do they cost? Do I need to put a deposit down?
– Are there any available & when?
– How do I choose my puppy?
– How do I pick up my new puppy or get it delivered?

We are going to answer these questions and more. If you don’t find an answer here or elsewhere on our website give us a call. We are a family that lives and breathes for our dogs so we have no problem chatting with you to help equip you with the information to make the best decision for you and your family.

All limited registration Labrador puppies are $2400.00-$2600.00 (unless a special breeding)

All limited registration Shih Tzu puppies are $1700.00- $1900.00

Full registration pups are additional cost.


We accept deposits payments of $500.00 on the puppy color and gender of your preference. Deposits can be be placed on upcoming litter wait lists to secure a spot. All deposit payments are non-refundable unless we fail to provide the puppy that has been requested.

All deposits taken are sold on limited registration, until certifications of the hips, elbows and eyes are done. Upon sending us copies of the certifications, along with the extra fee, we will lift the limited registration to full, unless prior arrangements are made. So please let us know if you plan to breed before getting your puppy

We do accept credit card payment through www.paypal.com

Also through Venmo.

We also accept Credit Cards at the Kennel. If using credit card for pick up balance, there will be additional fees added on.

We strive to keep our dogs happy and healthy and take the greatest care in ensuring their well-being. Our females are bred at intervals that reduce the risk of pregnancy complications and adverse health affects. The best way to keep in touch with the upcoming litters is to follow us on social media or visit our Litters page for the most recent updates and litter announcements.

Choosing your puppy begins with a deposit on a litter. Our puppies are in high demand, so if you wait until there are pictures of the puppies you may be too late. The best time to make a deposit is at the time of the announcement of a litter. Picking your puppy will depend on the order of deposits, we run a first-come, first-serve model. So first deposit gets first pick. Barnes’ Puppy Love Kennels reserves the right to keep first pick open on each litter for ourselves, if we see a puppy we feel would be a great asset for the kennel.

Pickups are scheduled based on the deposit order. All picks are made on your schedule pickup day at your scheduled time. This means that if you are at the bottom of the list the puppy you saw in the pictures may not be available. You must pick from the color and gender you put a deposit on.

After placing a deposit on the puppy, Barnes’ Puppy Love Kennels will continue to care for your puppy until the day of your puppy pickup. They will receive the necessary vet checks and health screenings prior to your pickup day. By law puppies cannot leave the kennel prior to their 8 week birthday. There are no exceptions.

You will receive a date and time (usually the weekend after their 8 week birthday) for puppy pickup on-location at Barnes’ Puppy Love Kennels where you can “get to know” the puppies and make your final selection. We respectfully ask that you do not arrive any earlier than 5 minutes prior to your scheduled pickup time. The kennel is a 24/7 operation and the appointments are scheduled to maximize time and efficiency. Typically the majority of the pickups will be scheduled for the same day which means if you do arrive early you will have to wait until the buyer with a higher pick order is completed with their pick(s). We ask that you do not interfere with their time with the puppies and wait your turn. We know its hard to wait because those puppies are so darn cute!


Road deliveries are an option provided by Barnes’ Puppy Love Kennels at our convenience. Arrangements can be made for regional deliveries. The additional cost of delivery will be determined by the distance for the delivery and FINAL payment must be made 1 week in advance of the delivery. Choosing the delivery option will void your pick order unless you are the first pick of a gender.

When you visit the kennel we have available a wide variety of supplies for your new puppy. Collars, leashes, beds, food dishes, toys and cute little stuffed labs. We also have a variety of Labrador Retriever shirts, and shirts and hoodies with our logo on them.

When you pick up your puppy you will be given several days of their current food. They are fed Iams Large Breed Puppy. We strongly suggest keeping them on this food. If you feel the need to change, please keep them on a large breed puppy food. And gradually mix in the 2 foods to allow them to adjust to the new formula.

We also highly recommend NuVet Labs for your dog’s health needs. They are highly recommended by our veterinarians and have been the Dietary Supplement of choice here at Barnes’ Puppy Love Kennels for nearly 2 decades.
