jj, you can get a good pup for less than $500. I bought one for $250 that is AKC and UKC and had both parents on site and I looked at the bloodlines 6 generations back and they had many, many grand master hunters and master hunters among other championships. She has been very easy to train and picks up everything I teach her really fast. Just look around. You can find them. :thumb:

There are so many lab litters around, you can find a great one if you do you research. First do not buy a pup that doesn't have an OFA Good or excellant rating on their hips. I would also look for heart and eye cerfs as well. Next make sure these dogs are from hunting stock. If I hunted with labs, it would come from parents that have titles, certs, and a puppy guarantee. You can find all of this for a reasonable price. You lab guys are lucky! I hunt with boykins and they are twice as much.

This place will be on the expensive side but good dogs.

I'll have to second Wareagle too. I got my pup from there and I have had quite a few over the years......she is hands down the best of the bunch.

Like stated above don't buy one without a gaurantee or from parents that don't have good to excellent hips and eyes. You'll pay more on the front end but it will be well worth it in the long haul.:thumb:
