We only breed english labradors retrievers, with our focus on producing Lab puppies with an excellent temperament and a strong desire to please. Our AKC labrador puppies will make great companions as well as therapy, hunting, and show potential dogs. Its important that if you are going to add a Labrador puppy to your family that you get the right one. There are a lot of lab puppies for sale, but what kind of lab breeder are they coming from. There are good labrador breeders out there, but there are also lab breeders that do not care about the quality of the labrador puppy you are going to take home. There are also some labrador breeders that try to sell speciality labrador puppies in different colors that do not meet breed standards.

Things to think about before you Buy a Labrador Puppy
So you’ve thought about buying a labrador puppy, here are a few things to think about before bringing your new addition home. One of the great things about owning a Labrador is the years of joy that they bring you, but you don’t want to make a decision that you will regret later on.
Are Lab puppies for You?
English Labrador puppies are wonderful family dogs, and faithful companions. They are very calm dogs and do well in inside environments. Though they might lay around inside all day, they still require some daily exercise. It can be as simple as fetching a few balls, swimming in the pond or pool , or an evening walk around the neighborhood. They do shed year round, but it is nothing a quick vacuum or broom can’t fix! From newlyweds, a family with young children, or a retired couple; anyone can be a perfect fit for a labrador puppy!
we are a lab breeder that takes pride in breeding labrador puppies that meet AKC Breed Standard
Even though labs are very easy going and can adapt easily to any situation, owning any breed is a big responsibility! This is not the time to hunt for a bargain. Your new labrador puppy will be a member of your family for his lifetime, so you'll want to make a wise investment. Before purchasing a puppy, you need to make sure that you are prepared for the financial and time responsibilities of owning lab puppies. Labs need a quality food, annual vet visits, monthly flea, tick, and heart worm preventatives. Purchasing a labrador from a responsible breeder that only breeds healthy dogs that meet the breed standard will reduce your veterinary bill for the life of the dog. It is also important to purchase the best quality food you can afford. We feed 4 Health Performance for our adults and 4 Health Puppy to our lab puppies under 18 months old. The 4 Health brand is sold at Tractor Supply and is a grain free kibble. (Food Review) The quality of the food is a large part of the health of your labrador puppy. Its also very important that you dont over feed a labrador puppy as this can cause health problems later in life.
As responsible Labrador Breeders we sell our Lab Puppies on Limited Registration
Obedience training is the key to years of enjoyment. One wayto make your Labrador puppy a joy to be around for everyone is through quality obedience training like the AKC S.T.A.R. puppy program. A poorly behaved labrador puppy is a problem for everyone. Nothing is more frustrating than attempting to corral a dog that will not "come" when you call. A well trained dog is not only a pleasure to own, he is a goodwill ambassador for the entire canine community. A well-behaved dog is the result of the dog's owner being willing to work with the dog regularly in a systematic manner. Time spent training your dog is time well spent. Labrador breeders that truly want to better the breed can help you locate a reputable training facility. If you are looking for a labrador puppy that is going to be an inside family member at your house, then we are the labrador breeder for you. We are not looking to sell yard dogs.
