Charlie and Connie are great breeders! We have had the best experience getting two pups from them. Our boys are big, beautiful, healthy, and well socialized. From the very first conversation I had with Charlie, the whole process was great. They kept in touch as the puppies grew and sent updates and pictures. All their paperwork was in perfect order when we picked them up. It is obvious that they take great pride in breeding quality English Lab! Highly recommend if you are looking for a well bred, beautiful pup!

The Best Place to Find English Labrador Show Type Dogs
The English Labrador Show Dog is one of the most popular and beautiful dog breeds in the world. It has amazing looks and an endearing temperament that makes it a perfect companion on four legs. Many times, people get confused by its name ‘English Labrador,’ which is a misnomer. It is imperative to understand that the breed was divided into the English Labrador and the American Labrador based on their roles as hunting companions or show dogs.
The Labrador breed came from Newfoundland and was pioneered by English settlers who brought their fishing and hunting companions from England for the uninitiated. Thus, all Labradors are English and were initially working dogs. When bringing a pet home, especially an English Labrador Show Dog, it is imperative to know about its appearance and temperament.
This dog breed is instantly recognizable and is very popular. However, certain distinctive features set them apart from their other working-bred relatives. Its thick tapering otter tail and its chiseled head are two of its classic features.
Its head is chiseled and is heavier and larger than other working-type labs. The marked “stop” is more distinctive in yellow English labs than the American labs. This “stop” is the point where its skull rises gently upwards from the muzzle base. It has large kind eyes that seem to implore you to take him home.
The body shape of this dog is based on the broad theme which continues up to its tail. Well-proportioned, strong neck and deep and broad chest give it a royal look. It has a powerful and well-muscled hindquarters. Its tail is one of its major attractions, which is heavy and bushy and sweeps downwards right behind him. Sometimes its shape may give it a shorter appearance or look short-legged, but it is just an impression. When looking for show dogs, you may find them slightly shorter in the leg but is proportioned with the spine.
The otter tail is its unique feature which is heavy and tapers to a point. It makes the English Labrador looks more attractive and good-looking.
The coat of this dog is double and waterproof. It is perfect for tolerating the ice waters of Newfoundland. Thus, the coat is perfect for them to sustain sub-zero temperatures. Three Bears Labradors is the perfect place to find the best English Labrador Show Dogs.
