About Labrador Retrievers
Labrador Retrievers are one of the most popular dog breeds in the world, and for good reason. These loyal, trusting, obedient and affectionate pooches embody all the values we look for in a companion and lifelong friend.
Easy to Groom
The short coat of the Labrador Retriever makes grooming a cinch—perfect for families looking for a low-maintenance puppy.
Labrador Retrievers are some of the cutest dogs on the planet—come on, just try to say no to that face.
Labrador Retrievers are extremely friendly—even with strangers. They might not make the best guard dogs but they LOVE cuddling!
Labrador Retrievers always seem to be puppies at heart, and never get tired of playing games and having a blast with their families.
Labrador Retrievers make training a breeze—these dogs were bred to respond quickly to commands, and they make great students.
Fun for the Whole Family
Labrador Retrievers are outstanding dogs that get along really well with both kids and other animals.

About Uptown Approved Breeders
No puppy mills. No scams. We thoroughly vet all breeders based on our 47 Breeder Standards. When you find a puppy at Uptown, you're not just getting a dog--you're getting peace of mind that your new best friend is coming from an experienced, ethical breeder who loves dogs just as much as you do.
Questions & Answers
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
