    DefaultReputable Ohio (or surrounding states) breeders! Advice?

    Hey there! We've decided on a lab puppy for the next addition to our family, but now the question is, "where do we get him from?" I did have a certain breeder in mind but the mother was not tested for cardiac issues, so I'd like to find a very responsible breeder where both parents are tested for everything & possibly show! I'm just looking for a companion dog, but I also want an exceptionally healthy dog! Any help would be fantastic, please!

    .Where do you live in OHio? I know of several good breeders located around the state. Are you looking for field or conformation lines? You can PM me if you like.

    The AKC Parent Club of the Labrador Retriever

    This would be a good place to start. Here are several breeders in Ohio. You have 3 Lab clubs in Ohio - google for Labrador Retriever Club Ohio and you will see them. There are probably more breeders listed on those sites. Now, being a member of an LRC does not necessarily make a breeder awesome, but it is a much better selection than you will find by just looking at Lab web sites. If you want critique of any particular breeder, you can ask for it and people will respond by private message.

    Patm- How do I PM you? I live in the Columbus area!

    BigBRownDog- Thank you so much! I'll check it out! That's good to know that I can have other people critique certain breeders. I'm new to this breed so any help is much appreciated! :

    Do a Google for the Miami Valley LRC and the Central OH LRC

    I'll definitely google them!

    So...is Winding Creek Acres not a good idea (the male is bred through Green Gables Farm)?

    Do you know what you plan to do with the dog? Will it be a pet or will you compete with it in obedience, agility, hunt tests, etc?

    If you are looking to do something specific with your pup, I would suggest looking for a breeder who also competes with their dogs in that type of event.
