If you are a citizen of the states living in the north, or a citizen of Ontario, Canada interested in buying a Labrador Retriever you are hopefully seeking information about finding the right breeder. Buying a puppy is somewhat like adopting a baby. Typically, you would adopt a baby that is healthy, has good genes, and one that you feel a connection with. The same goes when you are picking out a puppy. Similar to an adoption agency, a dog breeder must inform you about all the details regarding the puppy of your interest. Here are a few breeders located in Ontario that are dedicated to producing Labrador Retrievers.

These breeders require the dogs to have high levels of expertise in retrieving before they are bred. Intelligence and temperament are important things that they breed for.
