Labrador retrievers, Labradors or labs were traditionally, and still are, used as a type of gun dog. In more recent years pedigree Labrador puppies have been sought out by buyers as they have acquired a reputation for being a good all round dog.
Whilst this is true in many cases, as with all dogs, we believe much of a puppy's temperament is related to the individual Labradors training and their upbringing, not just the breed.
If a Lab puppy is not given proper care and training they could develop behavioural problems in the future. Make sure you're prepared to look after a Labrador puppy and meet all of their needs.
There is a high demand for pedigree and purebred Labrador puppies for sale in the UK.
Unfortunately, because of the way they've been bred, the breed suffers from inherited diseases (PDF 72KB) which can seriously affect the health and welfare of labs.
