I recently bought a dog from Laughlin Kennels. First of all, when I saw the side and back yard, I saw sheds that the dogs must have been kept in. Didn't know if they had heat. Looked very run down.
RED FLAG. Second, no one is allowed to see where the dogs are housed. Our vet said that is a definite RED FLAG. Third, the area where you can see dogs is basically a breezeway in a house. There was only one woman working at the time: answering constant phone calls, bringing dogs up and down from the basement, and dealing with customers, all at the same time. Although we had an appointment, there were two other families there at the same time we were there, all in this small breezeway. Lots of puppies were brought out at the same time, and all the pups were running around together, and no one had a chance to have private time with the dogs they selected. We asked if we could be put in a private room, but they said no. Another family didn't like this at all and left. It was like a chinese fire drill. No organization at all. RED FLAG.
As of today, we had the pup checked by our vet and he is ok.....I will update this review if his condition changes (he was very dirty when we bought him). I should have listened to my gut feeling that told me to "get out of here" when I saw what was going on. I would not buy another dog from this kennel. When you get that RED FLAG feeling, listen to it.

Do you have $20,000 to spend on your pet should it live for 7 years?
If not are you willing to max out credit cards and take a loan out to keep your animal alive? I ask you this because, this is exactly what I had to do, after "adopting" (buying} my dog from Laughlin 7 years ago). Laughlin Kennel is not a puppy mill, as they breed only 4 kinds of dogs. However the other 30 dogs they sell come from Puppy Mills. Case in point my dog came from New York Mills Minnesota Pick of the Litter Puppies, and a notorious animal abuser named Kathy Jo Bauck. If you Look her up on line you will get a good picture here. My dog was born with stage 4 hip dysplasia with no angulation of the hocks, jaw malformation, and other deformities. When I received my dog I believed she was from a private breeder, this is what I was told. I did receive my money back $600 at the time, ONLY AFTER I had a news station in Springfield Ma call and investigate. I am writing this to so other people do not suffer the heartbreak of a sick animal or go broke trying to care for them, in the manner they deserve. Learn from my ignorance and adopt from a shelter. Such as Second Chance Animal Shelter in East Brookfield Ma.

The bottom line is do your research before you buy a puppy and do not buy a dog from here. If you google, Laughlin Kennel you will see tons of negative reviews. Buying a puppy from Laughlin Kennel is like playing Russian rulette. Laughlin Kennel sells mostly sick dogs, and they have no remorse about doing it!

Laughlin Kennel sold my boyfriend and I a sick pet and refuses to refund the purchase price or offer alternative recourse to us. We visited Laughlin Kennel and placed a deposit on a cavachon puppy. We made arrangements to pick up that puppy the following week. The day that we were scheduled to pick the puppy up, we were at the Kennel playing with him when he began to cough. The employee working at the time stated that he believed that he might have kennel cough, so we would be unable to take him home that day. He informed us that Laughlin Kennel had their own vet and that the puppy would see this vet.

We received a call from Laughlin Kennel informing us that the puppy did have kennel cough, and that we would have to wait until he was healthy and completed treatment to adopt him. We called Laughlin Kennel numerous times for updates on the puppy's heath and visited him during the following weeks. On August 19, 2011, Laughlin Kennel told us that the puppy was seen by their vet that day and he was healthy and cleared for adoption. On this day, we picked up the puppy and paid for him.

On that same day when we had the puppy home, he was still occasionally coughing. The puppy was seen for an examination by our own vet the following day. The vet believed that the puppy was still infected with kennel cough and prescribed Clavamox.

The puppy's health began to quickly decline about five days later. The puppy continued to cough, quit eating, was extremely lethargic and began vomiting. The puppy was admitted to an emergency care animal hospital on August 30, 2011. The puppy has been diagnosed with kennel cough, pnemonia,coccidia, and dehydration . To date, we have incurred $1,182.00 in vet expenses, and the puppy is still staying in intensive care. The vet estimates that we may have to spend up to $3000.00 before the puppy is healthy enough to come home. On August 31, 2011, I called Laughlin Kennel to request a full refund of the purchase price of the dog or an alternative remedy. I spoke with James on the phone, and he informed me that I was not eligible for any remedy unless the puppy was returned.We are not interested in returning the puppy because we have already grown extremely attached to him. The puppy was sick when he was at Laughlin Kennel, he was sick when he came home from the kennel, and his health continues to decline. The puppy has never been healthy. Laughlin Kennel sold us a sick dog.

Please take our story as a lesson and do not buy a dog from Laughlin Kennel.

I researched this place extensively...the conclusion was 50/50...however, I decided to go see it for myself and make my own judgements...

Went there at the end of March to look at some puppies...they were running around, playing, having the time of their lives...I was so happy to see that they looked healthy and acted healthy! The facility itself wasn't what I thought it was though. It definitely felt kind of like a business being run from the home rather than an actual kennel...which kind of creeped me out...but it wasn't so bad that I just wanted to run away. The kid who was working the counter wasn't exactly super-friendly, but he was decent enough and was able to answer all the questions I had.

So I sat there and played with a particular puppy who I absolutely adored and who seemed to get along with me the best...so I purchased him and brought him!

Took him to the vets a couple of days later...the anticipation was killing me...I became so paranoid that I purchased a sick puppy thanks to all the reviews...brought him to the vet and the vet said that my puppy was absolutely healthy. Nothing to worry about! Brought him back two weeks later to finish up his shots and the vet gave him a full inspection again and told me that he was still healthy and that he was doing great!

So yeah, don't believe everything you read, but definitely use the things you read as guidelines. Even though I got a beautiful and healthy pup from there, would I go back and get another one? That I don't know...wont really know until the opportunity presents itself.

The only opinion that you can really count on is your own. Follow your instincts.

I bought a wonderful, healthy, Boston Terrier puppy from this kennel two weeks ago. I thought the place was clean and I had no problem with the staff. I read the review below and wonder, if the place was so bad, why would they ever buy a puppy from them? Christine, who was the employee that sold us the puppy was wonderful. Very patient and walked us through every step. I would highly suggest getting your next puppy at Laughlin Kennel.

We found our beautiful Mini-Aussie "TOBY" at Laughlin Kennels. The experience on buying a pup is exciting and at his first health checkup the Vet told us the kennel did an excellent job worming him and was in perfect health! I would recommend this kennel to anyone who finds a dog they fall in love with on their website!!!

In July 2009 we purchased an adorable chocolate cocker spaniel from Laughlin Kennels. He is the best puppy we have ever owned. We also have 2 other dogs and with his easy going personality he blended right into our family and our busy life from day one! We can not imagine our lives without him!

We purchased out puggle bentley from laughlin kennel almost a year ago and he has been a blessing to us. He was extremely happy and playful when we went to pick him up. When we brought him to the vets he got a clean bill of health and the vet was very pleased with how happy he was. He has been healthy and happy since the day we brought him home. Everyone is gonna have there own opinion on the kennel just like people have there opinions on everything else. The people that work at the kennel were very friendly and helpful til the day we went to pick up our puppy i called daily and they were always very kind and understanding thank you laughlin for our beautiful, happy baby bentley.

I bought two puppies at Laughlin Kennel, and recently sent them an email as a Christmas card, while I was looking up the email I thought I'd drop in here. My first puppy from Laughlin Kennel was a Beardie my daughter named Abby, which was odd because her mother had the same name and I hadn't shared that with her. She was such a wonderful dog when it came time for another puppy we went to see Laughlin, and sadly they no longer breed Beardies. Since we were there we looked at several breeds and spent almost all day there. In the end my daughters had fallen in love with a toy poodle and we picked her up a few days later, she is named Alice. My experience with Laughlin has been exceptional, two wonderful puppies, a clear contract which spells out everything in plain English, and a staff who seems to be the opposite of pushy. I cannot fully express my gratitude to them for sharing these wonderful animals with my family.

When you are a Mom you want to make Christmas a Magical wonderful time that will always be remembered. When I buy a pup and take it home I know it will be taken care of. What is a better gift, for a family than a puppy! We looked at the Laughlin Web sight it is beautiful. So are the pups. We decided to get the pup before Christmas so she could be a big part of the whole holiday season!
We selected a few puppies to look at. The staff brought them up for us to see. The kids were excited and happy. We saw the pups were fat and healthy. We picked out our baby girl and were able take here home with us that day! We have had her for two weeks and she has been a love! She is healthy and smart. Our vet even said she is a very sweet pup! Santa will bring her toys and treats along with the kids toys.The Kids love her and we do too. She is already a part of our family. We had a nice experience at Laughlin and want to tell them thanks. You have made us very happy!

We bought a pup from Laughlin earlier this year. Hershey was just fine -- stool sample was negative for parasites, ears clean, etc. He was sneezing at home so the vet put him on a mild antibiotic for 10 days just to be sure, as he was coming from a kennel environment. Anyway, he is fine -- the vet isn't even sure he ever had kennel cough.
What I liked was that we could look at the pups on their website. It's not the same as seeing the pups in person, but it helped us a lot in selecting Hershey -- we pretty much knew he was the one we wanted before we even got there.
Their prices beat the pet shops around here and the pups just looked better -- fatter or healthier, I don't know exactly what it was.
We got out previous puppy from a shelter. That pup was fine too, but did have some parasites, but no big deal. But we didn't have much of a choice. He was a little older, not a husky but maybe a husky or shepherd cross. We named him Mutt and he was fine but just not as devoted to us as Hershey is.
We would definitely get another puppy from Laughlin.

I want to share a little bit about the puppy we bought from Laughlin kennel in Oxford Ma.We had never owned a pup before but we felt that a pup might be nice for the kids. We talked a lot with the with the staff about what kind of pup would be good for us. We talked about what kind of care the pup would need and what it's grooming needs would be. The staff took all the time in the world helping pick the breed that was right for our family. After about three trips back to Laughlin we settled on a very pretty little Cockapoo. My girls just love her We have had her for six months and she is the best. I wanted thank Laughlin and let them know there are a lot people who are happy who are they are there. I am one of them.

I would like to post my experience with Laughlin kennel. My family was dealing with the loss of our 14 year old Collie. We saw the web site and all of the beautiful pups. How could you not be taken in with pictures they are beautiful. When we got to laughlin we found the kennel clean and well staffed. We had picked three breeds of Dogs we wanted to see. We arrived at the appointed time. The pups were fat and well cared for. We saw lots of happy bouncing pups. We chose our pup and were able to take him home the same day. So he could start to fill the void in our lives.Well he sure did that. He brought joy and love and laughter back to our house. You forget just how much energy a puppy has! Tucker is a great dog. He has been healthy right from the start. We have had Tucker for four years.. Two weeks ago we decided to Purchase a new friend for Tucker. We went right back to Laughlin.
We are happy with both of our puppies and want to thank Laughlin and the great staff. You guys do a wonderful job. Keep up the good work!

This is our second pup we are buying from Laughlin. The first one live for 13 years and we had a great life with him. he was a part of our family. we call him Jess and he was the sweetest guy. So when we were ready to buy a new pup we went back to Laughlin. We bought our second pup and we are so great full to have him. He is already bringing us joy and happiness. We are looking forward to a long and happy future to together.

We bought a Boston Terrier that was very sick with coccidia, and giardia which can be passed on to our other dog as well as humans. She also had a nasty case of kennel cough/pneumonia that took weeks to clear. This in my opinion is incredibly irresponsible. When we contacted them with regard to our concerns we were dismissed and told we could return the dog if we wanted to but they were not going to pay us for the vet bills we incurred as a result of the puppy's condition. Also, the owners were "unavailable" to discuss this situation which left us working with employee who ultimately isn't responsible for these deplorable practices. They basically deal with puppy mills and we'll never go back there again. They wre recommended to us by Starwood Kennels in Oxford so as far as I'm concerned they should be on the same "watch list"

I actually did get a puppy from Laughlin kennel. She is absolutely beautiful, people stop me when I am walking her just to tell me so. The puppy I took home is a yorkie, and my kids and I named her Ella. Laughlin kennel was very helpful, and truthful. I was informed Ella's past health issue. She had a cold before. The young man working there basically said, "that this is a kennel, and that all these puppies are at some risk of getting cold much like a child in school or daycare. This made me a little nervous at first, but then I read their contract. They have a 14 day health guarantee that would allow me to return the dog for any health issue with a written vet statement. This agreement seemed completely reasonable to me. I could take the puppy to my vet, and if she found anything wrong with the puppy, I could just bring her back. Besides, the puppy seem perfectly healthy to me. I did, however, believe the puppy needed a bath, but so did the kennel because they strongly suggested she get one before we took Ella home. Upon my visit to the vet, she found Ella to be completely healthy! So, for my visit to Laughlin k, I received a clean healthy puppy that my family truly loves. I have personal statement to those of you posting about how you love your puppy, but Laughlin k. is a "bad place". I found it to be as clean as I would think a kennel would be. I saw that the kennel is regulated by the state, and has been in business for 15 yrs +. I am telling you that I think it is ok that you got a beautiful puppy from Laughlin kennel. Thanks Laughlin From Ella and fam

Lauglin Kennel Staff are real dog professionals! Their web page is well set up and easy to use. Phone calls and emails were (and still are) returned in a timely manor. We were experiencing the grief that comes with the loss of a old dear family dog. The house was quiet and just plan lonely. My wife and I thought about it and decided we would like to drive out to Laughlin. We emailed them and called and that afternoon we had our new pup Mischief Maker at home. He gets into everything, but has brought us Joy and laughter. He is nine months old now and has been healthy since day one. He did eat a whole sock, that gave us a scare, but that is what having a puppy is all about! Thank you Laughlin. You guys are the very best. Laughlin Staff made buying our new puppy a easy and fun experience.

Pros: Nice fat healthy puppies Ready to take home!

Cons: I can't think of one!

The sales people are mean. I overheard some girl arguing with a customer over the phone while I was there about some kind of contractual thing. When we asked to see the puppies they asked us which one. They wanted us to choose from pictures on their website... they would not let us see the actual dogs without picking one so they could hide where the pups were kept. A little fishy. After talking with a few local vets in oxford I'm glad we walked away from this one.

I bought a dog at Laughlin, Golden Retriever, male. I got him at a lower cost because he was 3 months old. He was not socialized at all, and very afraid. It took about 8 months to get him to keep his tail up. I hired a trainer and he was trained by my daughter and the trainer at our home. That is just to tell you that he was part of the family and not an outside dog. Then he started loosing weight, after many trips to the vet it was determined he had kidney failure. Well, this couldn't be so I took him to the Spca hospital in Springfield, MA . Yes, it was true. I work in the medical field and the vets showed me how to give him fluids under the skin, that had to be done 2 times a day. I had to purchase the fluids and needles and tubing. I did that for a year, because we couldn't let him go. We finally had to euthanize because he stopped eating. I spent in excess of $10,000. on this dog. I had all vet records and Laughlin refused to return my calls. The teenager in the office
just said I didn't buy the extended warrenty on the dog. His cost was $600. and I didn't think I would need to spend more money for a warrenty. I just wanted to get him out of the kennel he was so scared of everything. I certainly hope something can be done about Laughlin. Her kennel reminds me of a kennel I visited once in the Midwest.

Fourteen years ago we got Sammy, a Chocolate Lab, here at Laughlin Kennel. He was absolutely the greatest dog, right from the start -- smart, loving and (believe it or not) responsible. At night he would get up and make the rounds checking each of our children. He helped us keep our kids from going into the road. Just a great dog. A few weeks after we had to put him down, we decided we needed another dog. We decided to get a girl, and a smaller dog. We naturally thought of the same place and were a little surprised to discover that they are not only still there, but going stronger than ever. We "shopped" on their web site and decided on a very cute little Cavalier/Poodle cross. That was about four weeks ago and we just had to post a review because we have gotten just the sweetest and loving and smart puppy for the second time in a row.

Almost bought a bassett hound puppy from this place. The place was dirty and stunk to high heaven.Gave a deposit and was going to pick up a few days later after the vet check. Got a call that the puppy was sick (kennel cough and god knows what else. The girl we dealt with was down right rude and was not going to give us our deposit back. A friend of mine just bought a puppy from this place. She brought it to the vet and she was fine, other than a lot of behavioral issues. I don't recommend buying a puppy from this place.

I went to Laughlin Kennel last weekend. I went there because my dog, I had for her for fourteen years passed, away. The house was so lonely! I needed a pup. Just not any pup but a real good one. One just like the last one I bought from Laughlin! They had a new litter of Wheaten Terriers they were beautiful! We went home with our new bundle of joy. I took her to the Vet she and the Vet said she was a well cared for puppy. My whole family is as happy as we can be. I will shop there again when I need a pup and I highly recommend Laughlin to any and all who need a pup. They told me they get a lot of repeat business, It's no wonder why. The service is great and the dogs are great!

I currently own a dog, obtained from Rescue that was originally sold by Laughlin. He has a serious underbite, hip, elbow and eye problem, and his disposition could use some work. I have also met seven other Laughlin Kennel dogs and not one of them is sound from a health standpoint. We're not talking about defective toaster ovens, but rather creatures who become beloved members of our families. There is no excuse for this kennel churning out geneticly flawed dogs.

I took my family to Laughlin Kennel to pick a new pup for Christmas. We spent a hour or so and bought a fantastic little dog two weeks ago Saturday. We took her to the vet just like they ask you to do. Our little Noel checked out just fine. Her house breaking is going well. She has made the kids happy, which makes me happy. This was the best time for my family to open our home to a pup. They have a caring and helpful staff. I would go back anytime I was looking for a pup.

My family went to Laughlin kennel in Oxford Ma on Saturday November 10th to look at puppies. I am very proud to say we bought a beautiful little mixed breed girl and we love her. We thought about having a pup shipped in from out of state, but even the best of them require that you pay the shipping if there is something wrong with a pup and you have to ship it back, which just seems awful to me in the first place. One I saw wouldn't do anything unless the puppy died! So we bought a pup bred in Missouri from a local place. It seemed like the better choice and we're glad we did.

I bought my first golden, Gidget, from Laughlin kennel 14 years ago. Shortly after we purchased a black lab, Moondoggie. Both have been complete joys to our family. Recently my Gidget passed away. Without looking anywhere else we went back to Laughlin kennel for our third puppy. Once again, I am happy to report that our new family member Mindy, a minpin, is a healthy happy and wonderful addition. Although the kennel was more crowed and busy then I had remembered, the staff was helpful, friendly, and extremely patience with my babbling on about my last purchases from their business. Over the past 14 years my husband and I have recommended Laughlin Kennel to our friends and I will continue to do so. Go there, you will be happy you did!

I just came back from Iraq and my girlfriend bought me a Pug as a surprise. I was held over an extra day and in that time the dog took a turn for the worse and had to be put down. Needless to say it wasn't a very nice surprise. She's still waiting to get her money back. A very unconcerned office worker told her it wouldn't be until next week at least if at all.

Run don't walk away from this place. My son is going through a nightmare with these thieves. He's lost over a thousand dollars in vet bills and has a heart full of ache. I spoke with the owner before he bought the pup and she seemed nice enough, but when you have to do talk with her for anything else other than giving her money the owner becomes very ornery. She dominated our conversation so I couldn't even say anything. I would not recommend this puppy mill broker to anyone. It's one thing to sell someone a sick dog, and another to be rude about it.

My family went to Laughlin Kennel because we were looking for a pup. We looked all over! We started with rescues and shelters but they didn't have much and what they had was just not what we wanted. The shelters were hard to deal with. It cost about the same to buy a new pup! We found Laughlin on the web. They have such a beautiful web site! You can see all the dogs on the web and shop all you want! We even printed out pictures of the pups we were interested in. When we got there they brought them all to us! We were helped by a man named Chris and a man named James they were so helpful. They warned us before we came that it could be busy on the weekend and it was. We bought two tiny little Puggles.We had to wait and take our turn when we bought them but we had to wait at the vet too! I would highly recommend Laughlin. My family is so happy with our new family members! We took both the girls to the vet and both were wonderful! Beautiful and healthy!!!! No problems.The dogs were clean the place was clean.My family had a wonderful experience. We will go back and I will tell all my friends to go there when they a pup.

Laughlin Kennel in Oxford - I've lived in Oxford for over 9 years. In this time, I have had many friends purchase puppies from Laughlin kennel. Due to my constant nagging and pleading to my husband (my hard work paid off!), I've recently have been blessed with the opportunity to search for a puppy of my own. Like many people, I too have heard horror stories of "puppy mills" and mistreatment of animals. I am not the type of person who would even dare walk into a kennel without doing extensive research. I find it funny how many people go looking for a problem after the fact, to me that is just silly. I would go as bold to say ignorant and nonsensical. Why look in the first place? Because you had a bad experience? Right off the back your research is tainted with words driven from your own biases.. Sorry, a pet peeve of mine. Mostly, I am writing this review because I now know not only from my prior research but also my own personal experience that Laughlin Kennel is a wonderful place to purchase a puppy - if you can not adopt your desired breed from a shelter. My yorkie is the gem I've always wanted. My husband has grown quite attached too, despite his hardest efforts. The place was clean. The staff was very helpful and precise in their instructions for handling my knew family addition. I highly recommend this kennel. After more then a decade of good reviews from people inside the community, I feel this business is safely coined as a proper place to purchase a puppy in New England. However, I would void the place on weekends. It is often very busy and difficult to see the puppies one-on-one.

Whenever I visit the staff is proffessional and kind and puppies are clean and well cared for. I'm just writing to say thank you laughlin kennel, and I'll keep an eye on your website!

My husband and I were looking into getting a puppy for our grandchildren to enjoy when they spend time at our house. We read on the internet that the Laughlin Kennel had a variety of puppies. When I called for information, I asked the nice young man who answered if they got their puppies from puppy mills, suspicious that they seemed to have one or two of nearly every breed. We read very mixed reviews on your site, 25% of which were negative, but we decided to see for ourselves. The place is very ramshackle and the smell was terrible both inside and out. We told the same young man that we were not interested in puppies that were shipped. He said there were a couple of puppies raised there that we could see. We were shocked when he brought the puppies up. They did not look like normal puppies. One was shaking and shell-shocked but the second one was either very ill or completely traumatized. He could not life his head or respond. He just slumped in our arms. When we put him on the floor he couldn?t stand up. We then asked to see the mothers. That was even more heartbreaking. Both mothers were obviously not used to being outside a cage. One was terribly thin and had very little hair. Neither mother had any interest in human beings and both were extremely skitterish. We concluded that they had perhaps never been out of a cage, except to be bred. We felt sick and helpless. We didn?t want to support this place by spending the between $850 and $1,100. they were charging for these two puppies, but we wished that we could save them. We walked away feeling terrible. Don?t even think about going to this place and supporting this kind of treatment of animals.

We bought two tiny little Puggles.We had to wait and take our turn when we bought them but we had to wait at the vet too! I would highly recommend Laughlin. My family is so happy with our new family members! We took both the girls to the vet and both were wonderful! Beautiful and healthy!!!! No problems.The dogs were clean the place was clean.My family had a wonderful experience. We will go back and I will tell all my friends to go there when they a pup.

My family went to Laughlin Kennel because we were looking for a pup. We looked all over! We started with rescues and shelters but they didn't have much and what they had was just not what we wanted. The shelters were hard to deal with. It cost about the same to buy a new pup! We found Laughlin on the web. They have such a beautiful web site!

Pros: Nice Healthy puppies, Nice place, nice people!

Cons: They could use more sales space.

I bought a puggle with a hyperplastic trachea. I also thought ahead and per the office kids suggestion bought the "extra" coverage in case he had a congenital defect. When we called them back we got the run around and to this day have not seen one dollar honoring our contract. I contacted the dept of agriculture and they informed me that its completely legal to sell dogs with this condition even though other officials have vehemently stated otherwise.

Pros: a nice new friend...

Cons: ...with a nice congenital abnormality

My family bought a puppy at Laughlin Kennel in Oxford Ma. She is healthy and smart. The office Staff really know what they are talking about. They were helpful and spent a lot of time answering our questions. It is clear they care about the people who buy the pups as well as the pups. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs a pup

We bought our first puppy at Laughlin kennel 15 or 16 years ago. It was A nice Dalmatian. His temperament was outstanding. We bought our second Dalmatian some place else. We Loved her but she was not as nice our first. Last year we went back to Laughlin and bought a really nice Wheaten Terrier. She is the best! When we bought her she was up to date on shots and had been checked out by a vet. We took her to our vet who agreed she is a beautiful healthy pup. She is a little over a year old now and we decided to get one more. We loaded the kids in the car and drove back to Laughlin Kennel. The people are nice and easy to deal with. An hour after we got there I signed the contract and we became the proud owners of our 3rd Laughlin pup. I took her to our vet and she is wonderful. I will never go anywhere else to buy a pup. If you want a puppy go to the LaughlinKennel web site. they have a great site. They keep pictures of the pups they sell current and update them often. That was nice. We could see the pups and we knew that a pup we wanted would be there .I recommend Laughlin Kennel to anyone who wants a healthy well bred animal.

My niece bought a schnoodle pup there for about $1K. The dog had luxating (sp) patellas ( a problem with the knees that is inherited from the parents) that would require surgery to repair. The dog also had kennel cough. They did not even treat the other dogs that this dog was in the pen with once they found out about the kennel cough.
They took a very long time to return her money, she actually ended up having to dispute the charge with her credit card company for them to do anything & they already had the pup back!!

This is second little yorkie we have bought from them. We knew we wanted a pup so we watched their web page until we saw the most beautiful little girl in the world. We called them and drove right out. Everyone is so helpful. They Talked to me for a long time answering My questions. After I got my puppy home I had a lot of questions. My first Yorkie didn't like her new Little sister. They helped us though that I think they talked to me every day for two or three weeks. Both of my girls have been healthy since day one.Both have made my family happy and brought joy and love and mischief. Thanks Laughlin. We love ya!

I was skeptical at first that all the bad reviews were truly indicative of this place, but after going and seeing it in person I have to agree with the bad ones. If you do buy a pup from here be sure to ask them which congenital defects are salable and which ones aren't. I asked them and their answer scared me.

We bought a Christmas pup at Laughlin kennel in Oxford MA. This is not our first Laughlin pup. We bought the last one 12 yrs. ago. We were so happy with him we would never go anywhere else.The Kennel was a busy place lots of people who wanted a Christmas pup. There was a young man named Chris who helped us. He was great! He helped my kids pick the pup that was a perfect fit for our family. Not to big, Not to small just right! I loved that they had a contract so we could all see what is expected of both us the puppy owner and the kennel. Our pup went to the Vet today and is in perfect health. Our new pup is learning fast! he loves his big bother( Our older dog). We had some questions so we called and talked to Christine, She spent a lot of time with us. The Laughlin Staff is top notch just like the puppies they sell! I highly recommend Laughing Kennel!

I actually did get a puppy from Laughlin kennel. She is absolutely beautiful, people stop me when I am walking her just to tell me so. The puppy I took home is a yorkie, and my kids and I named her Ella. Laughlin kennel was very helpful, and truthful. I was informed Ella's past health issue. She had a cold before. The young man working there basically said, "that this is a kennel, and that all these puppies are at some risk of getting cold much like a child in school or daycare. This made me a little nervous at first, but then I read their contract. They have a 14 day health guarantee that would allow me to return the dog for any health issue with a written vet statement. This agreement seemed completely reasonable to me. I could take the puppy to my vet, and if she found anything wrong with the puppy, I could just bring her back. Besides, the puppy seem perfectly healthy to me. I did, however, believe the puppy needed a bath, but so did the kennel because they strongly suggested she get one before we took Ella home. Upon my visit to the vet, she found Ella to be completely healthy! So, for my visit to Laughlin k, I received a clean healthy puppy that my family truly loves. I have personal statement to those of you posting about how you love your puppy, but Laughlin k. is a "bad place". I found it to be as clean as I would think a kennel would be. I saw that the kennel is regulated by the state, and has been in business for 15 yrs +. I am telling you that I think it is ok that you got a beautiful puppy from Laughlin kennel. Thanks Laughlin From Ella and fam

Pros: honesty, helpful, good gaurantee

To the person who made that last review, why would I just give you your money back. I DO run a business and even if I did sell you a sick dog, it wouldn't be very profitable to hand over all the money you just gave me. After all, I invested in that dog too so why should I have to pay for it? You're the one who didn't do your research.
