The beginning

My love for animals started in my pre-teens when in 1989 our family decided to purchase our first pure-bred Labrador Retriever; a black male named Bareon. From that point, I was “hooked” on raising Labrador Retriever puppies. Our family bred pure-bred Golden Retrievers for a short time but decided the Labrador was the breed for us.

Is the location of the breeder important?

While it’s convenient to purchase a Labrador Retriever puppy from a local breeder if you find that the breeder you select is located in another state then it means you will have to have to pick up your puppy or have your new Lab puppy shipped.

I’ve heard shipping puppies through the airlines is dangerous.

Nothing could be further from the truth! Airlines have strict guidelines on the handling of live animals. They’re treated better than people!! If there were to be any potential danger in the transportation through airlines, we’d simply refuse to allow our puppies to travel with the airlines.

How much does a Labrador pup cost?

Labrador dogs are one of the cheapest breeds, but prices vary by various factors and range from $1,800 to over $5,000. Labradors are among the best breeds of dogs; their average price varies between $1,800 and $2,500.

Which breed of Labrador is best?

Labrador Retrievers are bred for three main reasons: Field Trial, Hunting, and Show.

  • Field Trial – These Labs tend to be hyper, as they’re bred for energy, intelligence, and performance in the field.

  • Show Trials – Labradors bred for show trials are bred for one thing: Looks (aka physical visual attributes. Health, energy, and intelligence take a back seat to looks, as looks are the only attribute that wins ribbons.

  • Hunting – This is your classic Labrador. Bred to be a calm, hunting companion. We source our breed stock from lineages that have been bred for hunting companions. Since the hunting season is fairly short, the Labrador is often a member of the family during the rest of the year. Hunting Labs have to be calm, intelligent, and obedient.
