PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS, AND GREAT-GRANDPARENTS FREE FROM HIP AND ELBOW DYSPLASIA - RESULTS OFFICIALLY CERTIFIED BY APMVEAC AND CPC
All parents are free from hip and elbow dysplasia with certificates and medical reports available. In addition to them, grandparents, great-grandparents, and many ancestors are also free from dysplasia. Check on our 'Breeders' page.
This test is crucial to detect any bone deformities and prevent significant problems or expenses in the future. This costly test, which involves anesthesia and X-rays, evaluated by a veterinarian with specific training in canine orthopedics, along with genetic tests for screening other diseases, are two of the various factors that distinguish a professional breeder from the average home breeder.
All our breeding dogs have their reports officialized by APMVEAC and are also registered with the Portuguese Kennel Club (Clube Português de Canicultura). This ensures that there are no falsified or reused documents. Pay attention to the authenticity of this document from other breeders. Occasionally, I also buy Labradors, and I have seen my contact being blocked when I insist on seeing the hip and elbow dysplasia documents. The test results for all our dogs are recorded on the LOP/pedigree itself as a guarantee of bone and joint health, which is rare to see in lineages and pedigrees. If you have had/have dogs and access to an LOP/Pedigree, check how many ancestors have the test results (HDA, HDB, or ED0) listed under their names.

ALL OUR BREEDERS HAVE GENETIC SCREENING FOR MULTIPLE DISEASES

To learn all about these diseases and how the control is done, please visit our genetic testing page and our breeding dogs:

FCI KENNEL NAME BROWNSUGAR LABS
After over 16 years of existence and with great care in selecting the best genetic lines, we have registered our name with FCI and CPC, a name that will be attached to all puppies of our breeding. Internationally, we are known as 'Brownsugar Labs.' With confidence in having the best genetic lines, both in morphology and temperament, as well as health control, we aim to identify the puppies in our litters with the name of our kennel.
LITTERS VERIFIED IN PERSON BY THE PORTUGUESE KENNEL CLUB (CPC)
Due to the high demand for our dogs, we are visited by the Portuguese Kennel Club (CPC) and also by the Directorate-General for Food and Veterinary (DGAV) to verify litters, parents, and conditions of the dogs, and I welcome them with great pleasure. They assess the quality and accuracy of the information we provide and confirm that everything is in compliance. As an example, they confirmed that our dogs were indeed the parents through the reading of the microchip (with their own device) and that they matched the ones listed in the LOPs we possess. Number of puppies, age, etc.; everything matches. The DGAV checked the conditions of our kennels and the quality of life of our dogs, and it was with great pleasure that we heard many compliments and that our dogs have a quality of life well above the average in Portugal.

Nutrition is crucial from gestation, just as it is for humans. Our females are supplemented during pregnancy as recommended by the veterinarian. Additionally, the early months are essential. Puppy's early nutrition will have repercussions on the future development of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems. For this reason, the puppies in our litters are fed, right from weaning, with high-quality dog food that provides all the necessary nutrients for excellent development and protection of vital organs. It's gluten-free, free from genetically modified ingredients (GMO-free), includes fresh ingredients (meat and vegetables), joint protectors (chondroitin sulfate and glucosamine), integration of MOS and FOS to improve intestinal flora as well as glucose (sugar) and protein absorption. They are enriched with Omegas 3 and 6, which also act on the coat, blood circulation, among other systems. The bags of food for puppies and parents are visible on our kennel! If you visit us, don't be shy and ask to see them.
Understanding the importance of nutrition, we offer a Dibaq Puppy KIT to all new owners, including a 2kg bag of the same dry dog food to prevent gastrointestinal issues during the adaptation to the new home, the Puppy Guide with important information, 1 can of Sense Grain-Free dog food, and a ball.
They are delivered with a Vaccination Record, Veterinarian Stamp, and respective vignette. Pay attention to records with only 'initials' or breeders'' signatures. Vaccination administered by breeders or others can often be misdirected and incomplete. This is why there are veterinarians. There are often changes to European vaccination guidelines to ensure animal immunity. For example, several years ago, only 2 multi-defense vaccinations were given in the initial phase, and currently, 3 are recommended to ensure that maternal immunity does not interfere with acquired immunity (e.g., against parvovirus).

This provides health assurance in addition to the usual medical reports.
