hi all, im going to be looking for a new puppy in the next 6 months to a year and i want to do it RIGHT this time!
i want a lab i can show!
does anyone recommend any good rep. breeders sites?
If you go to the AKC site (www.akc.org) or the LRC, Inc page (http://www.thelabradorclub.com/) you should be able to find the lab clubs near you. I'd start there. Shop the breeder's websites, figure out what "type" of lab you prefer, and start talking. Do realize most breeders will want to co-own w/ you on a show dog considering it will need to be on Full registration. This is not a bad thing!!! Just find someone you can definitely work with, someone you wouldn't mind being a buddy with for the next many years. I've seen folks go out of their area to buy dogs (any breed), and it's not often a good thing.... many folks are less inclined to help out a newbie who went off and bought elsewhere. -Anne
