The price of a Lab depends on where you get him, his breeding and what, if anything, he's trained to do. Labs obtained from animal shelters and rescue organizations are relatively inexpensive because these organizations charge only enough to cover their costs.
Reputable breeders, when pricing their Labs, must factor in the expenses involved in breeding, raising, training and showing their dogs. A puppy whose parents (and often grandparents and other relatives) are proven show or hunting champions has the potential to excel in these areas as well and will cost more money than a puppy who is the offspring ofjust average parents. Adult Labs from proven show or hunting lines are more expensive than similarly bred puppies because of the additional costs of raising a puppy to adulthood and because it's easier to determine overall quality in an adult dog. Finally, the most expensive Labs are those adults who have already proven themselves as show dogs, hunters or breeding dogs. There's very little risk involved in purchasing a proven Lab—and these dogs will be priced accordingly.
