I am currently looking for a puppy. I am mainly interested in a hunting dog and while I would not rule out eventually being interested in hunt tests, it is not a high priority for me. I of course want to get the best dog possible regardless. My question is what price range am I looking at for a quality lab with all the necessary health clearances out of a hunting line? I am not against paying for quality and I realize you get what you pay for. I am mainly asking to get an idea so I know what to look for when I start looking seriously. Anything else I should look for or watch out for? Like I said, I want to get the best dog possible for my needs.
Thanks in advance,
