The AKC describes the Labrador’s temperament as a kind, pleasant, outgoing and tractable nature. Labradors’ sense of smell allows them to home in on almost any scent and follow the path of its origin. They generally stay on the scent until they find it. Navies, military forces and police forces use them as detection dogs to track down smugglers, thieves, terrorists and black marketers. Labradors instinctively enjoy holding objects and even hands or arms in their mouths, which they can do with great gentleness (a Labrador can carry an egg in its mouth without breaking it). They are known to have a very soft feel to the mouth, as a result of being bred to retrieve game such as waterfowl. They are prone to chewing objects (though they can be trained to abandon this behavior). The Labrador Retriever’s coat repels water to some extent, thus facilitating the extensive use of the dog in waterfowl hunting.

Labradors have a reputation as a very even-tempered breed and an excellent family dog. This includes a good reputation with children of all ages and other animals. Some lines, particularly those that have continued to be bred specifically for their skills at working in the field (rather than for their appearance), are particularly fast and athletic. Their fun-loving boisterousness and lack of fear may require training and firm handling at times to ensure it does not get out of hand—an uncontrolled adult can be quite problematic. Females may be slightly more independent than males. Labradors mature at around three years of age; before this time they can have a significant degree of puppy-like energy, often mislabeled as being hyperactive.



Yellow, Chocolate, Black



The Labrador Retriever’s coat should be short and dense, but not wiry. The coat is water-resistant, so the dog does not get cold when taking to water in the winter. That means that the dog naturally has a slightly dry, oily coat.

Health Issues

In 2014, the UK breed survey reported an average lifespan for the Labrador Retriever of 12 years and 3 months, with some living up to 19 years of age. Labrador pups generally are not brought to the home before they are 8 weeks old. It is a healthy breed with relatively few major problems. Notable issues related to health and well-being include inherited disorders and obesity.

Living Environment

The Labrador Retriever loves to be around people, so it’s best not to leave outdoors alone. The dog should be moderately exercised in at least an average sized yard.

Puppy Select Finds Your Dream Puppy
ready for you to adopt!


Why Choose Puppy Select?

We, as a family, have always been dog owners. We have owned many breeds of dog and have had many champions; even world champion dogs from Europe and elsewhere. Not only conformation competitions but also were highly involved with working dogs. We even had a schutzhund club that would meet at our property several days per week.

We are an American-based company that has traveled across the continents to find quality dogs for our many customers, as well as for myself. We have a qualified dog finding team that works extensively across Europe, North America, and South America to find the perfect puppy for you. Our mission is to bring you a quality puppy that has been hand selected by members of our staff. Our staff is composed of FCI judges across the continents that inspect each puppy, and then licensed veterinarians inspect your puppy again. Our puppies will never come out of puppy mills like so many other internet companies or pet stores. We take the stress out of your puppy search and purchase.

Do you have to qualify to purchase one of our dogs?

The answer is no! It is our desire that everyone who wants a pet should have one. This is one of the reasons that we started this business. Nothing is more frustrating than purchasing a quality dog, then to be controlled by a breeder and their contract. If you purchase our puppies, you may or may not breed your dog, you may or may not show your dog as you wish. You will receive a full pedigree. We do however, reserve the right to act in the best interest of our puppies, and reserve the right to refuse service to a potential buyer.

Do you offer a Health Guarantee?

Yes. We offer a health guarantee for all puppies. Please see the terms and conditions under our Purchase/Health Guarantee Contract. All buyers must sign the agreement with our terms and conditions prior to purchase.

What does it mean if the puppy has a champion sire or dam?

Sire means that the father of your dog is a champion. Dam means that the mother if your dog is a champion. If it says “champion lines” it means that one or more of their ancestors were or are champions. Basically, you are getting a puppy that is a representation of the breed with good, solid bloodlines.

Can I get a highly trained dog?

We offer dogs that are trained and certificated in many specialties.

*Search and Rescue (all terrains)
*Guide dogs for the Blind
*Therapeutic Dogs (assistance for people with disabilities)
*Certified Dog Helpers (assistance for people in wheel chairs)
*Hunting dogs
*Protection Trained (Schutzhund or IPO trained)

Contact us in regards to information in regards to any of these specialized dogs.

Will my puppy come house-broken and trained?

The answer is no. Puppies are generally not trained before arrival to you. For specific breeds, some training options may be available. Please contact us for further details.
