You should also make sure that the Labrador retrievers that are in the breeding program of the Labrador retriever breeders are well screened. Choose a Labrador retriever that is screened for orthopedic diseases, eye disorders and heart valve problems. Also, you must make sure that the Labrador retriever has a DNA test done. This will assure you that the Labrador retriever will be sold to you while they are healthy. You will therefore not need to worry about the health of the Labrador retriever.
