Labrador Breeders That You Should Avoid

Jul 1, 2008
Of the hundreds of breeds of dog that you can choose from these days, Labrador Retrievers are still some of the most popular. This is really not surprising, considering how appealing and wonderful their appearance and temperament are. They are easy to take care of, and have a very calm, non-aggressive personality, which makes them ideal pets.

If you are interested in getting a Labrador Retriever as a pet, then you are going to have to determine where you are going to get one. You have a few options, including buying from a pet shop or backyard breeders, but if you want to ensure that you are getting a happy and healthy puppy, the only option you have is to go through reputable Labrador breeders. Pet shops and backyard breeders are casual breeders and will not be as educated and understanding on the breed or on what they need to do to take care of them properly.

There are a few things in particular that you should be considering when it comes to you learning about which Labrador breeders to avoid. The most important thing is that you ask lots of questions, because responsible breeders will always be willing and able to answer buyer's questions and provide them with the paperwork and other information that they need.

Be wary of any Labrador breeders that are not as willing to answer your questions, or who will not allow you to meet the mother dog. Remember that good breeders are those that are educated on the breed and who breed dogs simply because they admire the breed and want to contribute to its betterment.

Breeders that should be avoided on the other hand, are those that are in it more for the financial means and who could really care less about the dogs and do not end up taking proper care of them, either out of a lack of knowledge or a lack of consideration.

The process of choosing from the thousands of Labrador breeders is a major one, one that often requires a lot of time, knowledge and patience. Remember that there are many ways to locate a respectable breeder, including visiting your local area kennel and obedience training clubs. You can also speak to your veterinarian who will have dealt with their fair share or of breeders in the past and who will be able to offer you some very valuable advice here.

One of the most helpful tips is to avoid using newspaper classified ads to locate a breeder. Few responsible breeders ever advertise here because they are already busy enough, often with people even waiting in line to buy a dog from them.

Therefore, most of the breeders who do advertise here turn out to be amateurs who know little about the breed that they are selling and who you will want to avoid.
