How to Pick Out the Best Labrador Retriever Puppy

How do I go about picking out the best Labrador Retriever puppy of the litter? Should I get the one with the big paws or small head? How about the runt of the litter? Male or female?

I receive many questions like this so I posted a video below that should be helpful to you.

Some advice from All About Labradors:

You can have your breeder choose the Labrador Retriever puppy for you, based on the qualities that you tell them you are looking for. Who better to know the Labrador Retriever puppies personalities than you breeder raising them.

You can also go visit the breeder and observe the puppies. Watch which ones play rough with the others, which ones are pushy with their litter mates and which ones are playful and content around the others.

Watch to see which puppies notice you, which ones follow you when you move. Verbally call the puppies to encourage them to follow. Ask to hold the puppies to see which are comfortable and relaxed as opposed to growling or showing teeth. Look for positive signs to help narrow down you choice. Don't just make your choice on cuteness.
