I posted about this in Introductions, and a couple of people suggested that I post over in Lab chat instead.
We're looking to add a Lab puppy soon (in the next 12 months hopefully) and are in the process of trying to find a breeder. We're looking for a puppy with potential as a therapy dog and rally competitions, so temperament as well as health is important. I've been talking with several breeders in the VA/MD area and have narrowed down to 3 (previously 2! we added a new one :-) ).
They are Canvasback, Brookhaven and Tealwood. If anyone has any experience/information about any of these, would you please PM me? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
Any of those would be fine. Nothing wrong with them from what I know.
One more breeder I've come across - WatersEdge. If anyone knows anything good/bad/otherwise, please PM. Thanks!
My daughter has a Brookhaven Lab. She is one of the sweetest pups I have ever known.
That's good to know! I have heard great things about her dogs' temperaments from several sources.
