      Ontario reputable breeders?

      Hi guys. I'm newbie here, living in Toronto, just overwhelmed by the number of breeders we have here in this province. I did a decent amount of research and have some options I thought would be suitable. But would someone please PM me some reputable breeders or the ones I should avoid contacting with?

      Big thanks to everyone!!

      Once you get some takers, best to give them who you've found and let them take a look. Quick red flags...no clearances listed, no registered names listed, only using their own males and females, breeding lots of litters a year....

      hello and welcome. I have some contacts in the area and have been researching for years :P (though haven't actually bought a puppy). I'm in the eastern part of the province. I'd be happy to help.

      There is at least one other member from Ontario who competes with her lab (conformation) and a few others who've worked with some breeders as well.

      But yes you need more posts in order to receive PM's

      Another question here... is cardiac clearance necessary? I saw that a lot of breeders in my area did not list that on their websites.
