I'm newly registered to this forum buy have been lurking for a couple of months now. Thank you all for the great information you provide. I lost my good friend of 13 plus years a couple of months ago and I'm finally ready to bring a new member into the family. I was hoping to get any recommendations you have for a breeder in the Northeast.
Some information about me. I'm located in Massachusetts, but I'm willing to make the drive if necessary to connect with the right breeder. I would prefer a chocolate, but would definitely consider any color if they have the right health/temperament. I don't plan on showing, mostly looking for a companion for hiking, canoeing, camping, Sunday football on the couch etc. Potentially hunting in the future.
Thank you for your time.
Here's some I know of.

lrcgb.org is where I started my search two years ago. Labrador Retriever Club of Greater Boston. I looked over all the breeders and saw some other clubs they belonged to for competition which widened my search a bit. I settled on a breeder in Connecticut, Maritime Labs, and was very happy with her pups and her whole set up.
Start with the Lab Clubs and go through their breeder listings and review each.
If you don't mind going a bit north, look into Celtia Labradors.
They can always get on a waiting list though (I really like those dogs!)
Or try Hollyridge Labradors (Rhode Island)
