The price of a Labrador puppy will vary from breeder to breeder, and from place to place.

In the USA as a rough guide, you are looking at $800 to $1200.

In the UK you can pay anything from £650 to £850 for a well bred, health tested Labrador.


One site, My Dog Breed, claims that a 60-pound Labrador needs about 4 1/2 cups of food each day, divided into two portions.

Feed one portion in the morning and the other in the evening.

Labrador puppies require four feeds a day and can be given 1 1/2 cups of food each meal, according to the Official Labrador Guide.

Spending Time with Your Puppy. Exercise your puppy every day. Lab puppies have a lot of energy and they need to use that energy or they get into trouble. To avoid having items in your home chewed up and to keep your Lab's body healthy, your puppy should be allowed to walk and run around for at least an hour every day.
Puppy should be eating 2 to 3 cups of food a day. 12 weeks to 6 months: Puppy needs to be eating puppy food 2 to 3 times a day, with meals divided into equal amounts. 6 to 15 months: Continue with puppy food, giving puppy 2 equal meals a day.
Labrador retriever, breed of sporting dog that originated in Newfoundland and was brought to England by fishermen about 1800.

At a minimum, it's advised to bathe your dog at least once every three months.

You can wash your dog as frequently as every other week (with gentle shampoo, it could be even more frequent).

When in doubt, use your judgment — if your dog starts to smell, it's probably time for a bath.

The Labrador breed dates back to at least the 1830s, when St. Johns Water Dogs bred by European settlers in Newfoundland were first introduced to Britain from ships trading between Canada and Poole in Dorsetshire. These were then bred with British hunting dogs to create what became known as the Labrador Retriever.
