We live in Tassie and our house consists of me (angela), my fiance, our two daughters (18 months and 5 months) and a moggie kitten.
We want to get a family dog, an only dog, and due to the ages of our children we decided a Labrador would be best, black or chocolate.
We also like golden retrievers and greyhounds and were looking at them too before deciding on a lab.
We could easily get one from the trading post right now for $600, however we bought our kitten from a pet shop and then learnt that impulse buys like this encourage backyard breeders, and as the pup will be a family dog we decided to go through a breeder with a waiting list which means it'll be around xmas time before we get a pup!
Anyway, I got two quotes, around $1200. Is this average?
Does anyone know any really good breeders, preferably in tassie!
The pup will be desexed, and taken to obedience training.
Thank you for any help at all
