Sure, your Labrador won’t be a very good guard dog...but that’s only because the breed is so darn friendly.

Frequent Questions

Still have questions about Labradors? We have answers.

What affects the price of Labrador Retriever puppies Washington DC area?

As with all dog breeds, puppy prices depend on a variety of factors. Breeder experience, dog pedigree, and even coat color can all affect the price of your puppy. If you’re wondering how much the “average” cost of a Lab is, don’t sweat it—we’ll help you find a breeder that fits your budget, too.

Does your network ship pups out of state if there are no Labrador Retriever puppies for sale in Washington DC?

They sure do. While families are invited to pick up their puppies in person from the breeder, we realize that’s simply not possible for most. Companies and breeders in the Uptown network are able to ship puppies to any major US airport—excluding Hawaii and Alaska—meaning your perfect puppy is never too far away.

How do you screen Labrador Retriever Washington DC breeders?

Uptown screens Labrador Retriever breeders with a strict set of criteria that means only 10% of all applicants make it through. Some of the things we look for in new breeders and businesses include animal care, breeder experience, size and cleanliness of facilities, and much more. Head on over to our Breeder Pledge for more info.

Why is Uptown Puppies different from other Washington DC area Labrador Retriever breeders?

The internet has made it super easy to find puppies online, but more and more it’s becoming hard to tell exactly where your dog is coming from and how it’s raised. We wanted to help our customers avoid the countless puppy scams online by creating our own network of ethical breeders, and helping you connect with them to find the ultimate dog.

What is a puppy mill?

At a puppy mill, profit is king. Animal welfare and ethical breeding practices are thrown out the window as owners attempt to breed as many dogs as possible, regardless of health and behavioral issues. The fact is that puppy mill dogs are far more likely to develop expensive health issues—and to pass away at a young age.

Are there any purebred Labrador Retriever breeders in the Washington DC area?

With the Uptown network, some of the county’s best Labrador Retriever breeders are at your fingertips. It all starts with our MatchMaker process, where you’ll tell us your puppy preferences. Next, we’ll scour the network for current and upcoming litters. Finally, we’ll connect you with the best breeders, where you can finally meet your dream dog!

What is the MatchMaker process?

MatchMaker does two things. First of all, it helps you weed out all of the bad breeders and scams. Second of all, it helps match you with puppies that fit your preferences to a T. The best part is that MatchMaker is FREE—just give us a couple of minutes of your time, and we’ll help you meet the dog of your dreams.

How do I know I can trust you?

Together, Uptown and our many customers are doing our part to help eliminate puppy mills and unethical breeding operations. Take a look at our reviews and puppy alumni, and you’ll see the power of our strict vetting system, Breeder Pledge, and MatchMaker process in action. Are you ready to meet your dream puppy?
