Our five year old Labrador had her third and final litter of puppies in early February.  They will be ready to go to new homes the first week of April. Both parents live at home with us and can be seen with the puppies.  There’s a page set up for each of them under the Puppies tab, 2019 litter.

She had her second litter of eight puppies of four boys and four girls in 2018.  They range in colour from dark red to pale yellow – see the Puppies tab (2018 litter).  We’ve kept in touch with lots of the new owners who send us pictures and keep us updated on their progress – see https://www.yorklabradors.com/2019/01/27/2018-litter-growing-up/ for pictures.

8 weeks old

Her first litter in 2017 was  seven yellow and red puppies (one girl and six boys) in 2017.  We have kept all the information and pictures under the Puppies tab (2017 litter) and we track their weight daily for the first two weeks and then weekly, as well as uploading regular pictures of their progress.

The puppies’ parents are both trained pedigree and KC-registered English gun dogs. They are also fantastic family pets. Great natured, easy to command and very loving.

Although they have never been entered for field trials their parents are acclaimed FTC winners.

The Labrador Retriever is a dog breed suited as a retriever-gun dog. Also just known as a Labrador, it is one of the most popular breeds of dog in the United Kingdom and the United States. Originally, the breed developed from crossing Newfoundlands, mastiffs and the St. John’s water dog in Canada.

About Labrador Retrievers

Labrador Retrievers make great family dogs.  They need plenty of  exercise, lots of love, swimming and fetching games. They are perfect to get you out and about, as a quick walk once a day won’t do.

A Labrador is one of the best dogs for children – Labrador Retrievers are kindly, good-natured, and take most situations in their stride. With training, they will put up with annoying cats, distractions, other animals and even walk by your side off lead.

Most Labrador Retrievers are very friendly with everyone, though compared to Golden Retrievers, many Labs are just a bit more conservative with their affections. They are slightly more independent and responsive to obedience training. Some have necks like bulls and will easily climb the UKs three highest mountains carrying their own food and water supplies in packs.

The Labrador Retriever matures slowly, remaining a spirited teenager for several years, which can be fun… but will require patience and training to manage.

The best traits of Labrador Retrievers:

• Large, effusive and enthusiastic
• Coat is short and easy to care for
• Fun and cheerful
• Loves exercise and athletic activities
• Even tempered and dependable
• Peaceful with other animals
• Eager to please and responsive to training

Possibly the not so good traits!
• Needs exercise
• Potential rowdiness. Will jump up when young or not exercised enough
• Mouthiness – carrying and chewing objects
