pl tell me the best breeder in the country for labrador and beagle puppies?

i have a male adult boxer dog bought from aryonoush, hyderabad. now i wish to buy a good pedigree puppy of labrador breed or a beagle. so pl advice.

This question is all relative. Different people will value different things in a breed. Because of this no breeder is going to be "best" for all individuals as many of them breed dogs for different temperaments or purposes.

I personally would prefer a breeder who focuses more on producing dogs used for work as opposed to breeding for show rings.

Could you elaborate on what you plan to do with your dog? It might help bring in more constructive or useful answers.

Labrador Retrievers - Breed Introduction

Classified as a Sporting Dog, the Labrador Retriever is the most popular of today’s dog breeds, and its versatility is unsurpassed. The Lab not only makes a wonderful family pet, but is also an excellent hunter and swimmer. In fact, water is one of the Labrador’s greatest loves.

Labs are excellent gundogs, and can participate in field trials, obedience trials, and agility events. A Labrador can sniff out narcotics, aid in search-and-rescue work, or work as a guide dog for the blind with equal proficiency and ease. This dog is intelligent, dependable, and extremely loyal.

A medium-to-large dog, the Labrador Retriever is typically 21.5 to 24.5 inches (54.6 to 62.2 centimeters) in height and weighs 55 to 80 pounds (24.9 to 36.3 kilograms).

History of Breed

Labrador Retrievers originated along the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, in the early 1800s. There they were used by fishermen to help pull nets ashore, as were Newfoundlands, a slightly larger breed that originated in the same area.

In order to differentiate between the two breeds, what we know as Labs today were initially referred to as “Small Water Dogs.” It wasn’t until 1887 that they were actually dubbed “Labradors,” when the Earl of Malmesbury is said to have bestowed that name upon them.

During the nineteenth century, the Newfoundland fishermen, who were salted cod traders, traveled to Dorset, England, and their dogs accompanied them. Local British landowners were impressed by the Labs’ outstanding ability to retrieve, swim, and run, and some of the fishermen were persuaded to sell their dogs.

The English subsequently bred Labs for use as gundogs. The breed was recognized by the British Kennel Club in 1903 and the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 1917. Many British Labs were brought to the U.S. in the 1920s and ’30s.

Color and Coat

The coats of Labrador Retrievers are one of three solid colors (though there may be a small white spot on the chest): yellow, chocolate, or black. Yellow Labs can range in color from light cream to gold to fox-red.

Chocolate Labs range from medium to dark brown. The black coat was the first to be in vogue, but yellow and chocolate coats have since become equally popular. The Lab’s fur is short, straight, and dense, with a weather-resistant undercoat. This natural waterproofing contributes to the Lab’s affinity to swimming.

Personality and Temperament

Numerous adjectives can be used to describe the Labrador’s personality, and virtually all are complimentary: happy-go-lucky, friendly, gentle, outgoing, agreeable, sweet-natured, and even-tempered are but a few.

The playful Lab is an excellent retriever (naturally), and loves to carry things in his mouth. Though not well-suited to working as a watchdog , the Lab will bark when alarmed and guard against intruders.

Labradors have a high energy level, especially as puppies. Therefore, it’s necessary to teach these youngsters some manners – the earlier the better. It can be difficult to deter a Lab who has set his mind on a particular task, but the Lab is eager to please, and thus responds well to obedience training.

Labradors need regular exercise. An ideal routine consists of four 30-minute exercise periods per day.

Labs are exceptionally patient and reliable with children, making them a good choice for families. It’s helpful to remember, though, that any exuberant puppy can overwhelm fearful or very small children. Labs also adjust easily to and get along well with other pets.

Labradors are best suited to rural or suburban environments where there’s room to run, but they can adapt to city life if given enough opportunities to exercise. One caveat: The Lab won’t hesitate to jump into a pool, but may not be able to climb out of it without assistance. To avoid this danger, access to pools must be prevented any time close human supervision is unavailable.

Labs are sociable and prefer companionship to being alone. They may suffer separation anxiety if left alone for long periods of time, and this can lead them to be destructive. The best human family for a Lab is an active one, where there’s plenty of attention and affection to be had.

Show Characteristics

The Labrador Retriever has an athletic physique and a graceful gait. The sturdy barrel chest tapers to a slim abdomen, while the neck and legs are muscular. Show Labradors should appear to be well proportioned, and movement should appear to be free and effortless.

The Lab’s coat should be short and dense, without wiriness. Black, yellow and chocolate are the only acceptable colors. The eyes should be brown or hazel, and they should appear to be intelligent, friendly, and expressive.

The ears, neither too long nor heavy, should hang close to the head, and be set rather far back and low, while the upper teeth should closely overlap the lower teeth. The skull should be wide with a defined stop, while the muzzle should be of medi
