Thank you to all of the PRLRC members who contributed to making this year’s Back-to Back specialty another successful show for our exhibitors.  Thank you to our exhibitors for braving this year’s challenge and attending the show.  We all have a huge appreciation for our judges who made amazing efforts to come to us to judge the show.                                                                              ~~~~~~~~~



 Please take note; Are you looking for a puppy?  For those seeking a puppy at this time, be prepared to work with our club’s breeders to insure their, and your safety during the Corona Virus outbreak. Your breeder may suggest you FaceTime or use other video means to view puppies. Instead of providing a “Puppy Instruction Packet” when you pick up your puppy, the breeder may offer to handle all paperwork and puppy instructions via email . Please keep a safe distance between yourself and the breeder when you go to view and pick up your puppy. We want everyone to stay healthy and also have the joy of a new pup.

We hope to introduce you to our versatile breed within these pages.

Originally our breed was described as a  “water dog”, and subsequently used for retrieving felled water and upland game birds for the hunter. The Labrador today retains the same qualities of yesterday but also has become the countries favorite companion “family” dog. Whether you are looking for a pet for your family, a hunting partner, or perhaps a Therapy working dog,  Labradors are the perfect choice.
