|In each litter
the puppies will vary in breed quality, individual abilities and
personalities. The puppies are graded at 7 weeks of age and then matched up
with the new owners and what they are looking for. This assures the new owner
of getting the best puppy suited for their needs. I will not know which
individual puppy is yours till 7 weeks.
Some are going
to new homes for obedience or agility competition, some will go through
training and be hospital therapy dogs. Others will utilize their natural
instinct and become great hunting dogs or family companions. A few will
compete in hunting and trial
competitions or be used for breeding and show competition. Different litters
and individual puppies can vary in price accordingly. I take a $300 deposit,
non-refundable, when you are ready to commit to having a new member for your
|The Labrador Standard -
Every breed has a "standard" that describes
what that breed should be. All breeders should try to adhere as closely
as possible to this standard when they decide to use their dog to reproduce.
Breeding is not done just to produce pets or for so kids can have the
experience of birth.
There is no such thing as an "American Lab". Many people
decide to breed just to make a dog what they want it to be, for their purpose
and their pleasure, and not for what the dog was originally meant to be
according to its breed standard. You won't find a breed standard with this
name "American Lab" as there is none. So please educate yourself when speaking
about a Labrador. Review the breed standard as to what the correct build and
design of the Labrador should be and its original purpose.
There are many Labradors bred to compete in Field Trial Competition.
These dogs are bred away from the Breed Standard. Many people now are
referring to them an "American Lab" to describe what these dogs are like.
These dogs are usually taller and/or longer legged lacking depth in chest and
barrel, and lacking in the desired bone and substance required of the Lab
Standard. Many of these dogs have other desired breed features missing,
including the heavy type of coat and very thick straight tail. This example of
a dog has been bred and turned into a power-house of retrieving for hard
competition in the field. They are fast, cover ground quickly and have the
slighter build to make this possible. A totally different build and mental
level is needed for this dog to compete in Field Trial Competitions today that
require Quad marks (4) and blinds at distances of 350-375 yards on land,
especially in summer heat, and similar in the water. You need an
"athlete". It would be very hard to do this with the dog that is a well bred
Labrador Retriever as his build is totally different. The Lab was bred to be a
companion and retriever when hunting at closer distances. People who want to
compete in much of the field work are breeding the Labrador away from the
standard for this reason.
All this being said, there is only the one Labrador Breed Standard. If you
choose or have a need to have a different looking dog from what the Labrador
should be, so be it. But please don't assume that your "Field Looking" dog is
correct for the breed and that it is what the Labrador Standard should be.
It is not.
Silver is not correct and it is not an acceptable
color for a Labrador
