Available British Labradors Puppies
General Breed Information
Here In America, when we run across an undesirable trait in a dog such as unsteadiness, hard-mouth or even strong will, the American approach is to force train this out of the dog. Consequently, these undesirable traits are manifested in their genetics and continue from generation to generation.
The British method is quite different. A dog exhibiting an undesirable trait is simply but selectively ‘culled’ from the gene pool. This has been practiced for many, many years. The British breeding process sets the standard for Labrador Retrievers with flawless calm temperament, the unwavering need to please their master, uncanny hunting instincts, and a driven spirit that is easy to train. And oh yes, by the way, they make the best companions I’ve ever seen.
At Meadow View Puppies, we use only the best breeding stock from British bloodlines, so as to mirror the British standards here in the United States. If you’re looking for a Lab that is truly different and a joy to own, try one of our top-of-the-line British Labs. You won’t regret it!
