Litters at Sweetwater Labradors are well-planned and both parents tested for hereditary diseases prior to breeding. I have been breeding and showing Labradors for almost 30 years, and determine which stud to breed to based on pedigree, phenotype (what the dog looks like), temperament, overall balance, structure, movement, and Labrador type. That being said, what we breeders think a litter will turn out to look like is sometimes a crap shoot! We strive for consistency in type in our lines, and breed primarily for ourselves, to continue our lines. I have puppies occasionally that make outstanding pets as companions and therapy dogs. My next litter will be in the Fall of 2017.
