Planning the litter begins with selecting the appropriate
dams and sires to produce the offspring that will first be great companions.
Soundness of the parents which includes both physical
health and temperament are critical to producing a fine family companion and a pleasing hunting dog.
Conformation, the physical appearance and working
structure of the Labrador Retriever coupled with demonstrated trainability are the additional key elements that produce the
versatile performer, at home in the breed ring, the hunt test field, the obedience ring, working as an assistance dog, a service
dog or a therapy dog.
