Finding Labrador Breeders
If you are considering making a Labrador your pet, there are several things you should keep in mind as you search for Labrador breeders. First of all, make sure that you know exactly what you are looking for, before you go hunting for a family pet.
Finding a Good Breeder
Once you have studying the Labrador, and you are sure that you want to make one part of your life, you need to find a good breeder. There are several things you should look for when you are considering Labrador breeders. Remember that a breeder is only as good as his knowledge. For that reason, you should try very hard to be sure that you are talking to breeders and asking them questions that Labrador breeders should know the answer to. Do your research about these dogs so that you are sure you are asking the right questions, and then listen for the right answers.
Be wary of any Labrador breeders who don't ask you questions. A dog breeder should be screening the people who are buying puppies from them, so if the breeder doesn't ask you about where you live, how you plan to raise the puppy, and things that like, it isn't a good idea to buy a dog from them. Make sure that the Labrador breeder that you pick is taking an interest in where this puppy will go, because that means that the Labrador breeder has also taken an interest in other owners. That makes him a very good breeder.
A good Labrador breeder should never be afraid to answer you questions about his breeding program. Some questions you should ask are, are there any papers to go with the dogs? How does the breeder know the parents aren't related? How many puppies has this dog had, is she a good mother? Have any other people who have bought puppies from you been disappointed? What kind of health problems do your dogs have?
By asking questions of Labrador breeders, you are going to get an idea about how knowledgeable they are about dogs and how much they care for their own dogs. This is going to give you a good idea of what kind of puppy you are going to be taking home.
Remember that you should only get a puppy from a Labrador breeder who you are comfortable with. You need to know that you are making a good choice, so do your research first, and take the time to get to know the Labrador breeder that you pick personally so you can make sure you've made the right choice.
