Labrador Retriever Facts

Is the Labrador Retriever breed right for you?

Labrador Retriever1. The first thing that a Lab owner must understand is the breeds oral fixation. Providing chew toys, dog-proofing the home and training the dog what not to chew are essential elements in developing a companion dog with whom you are able to live happily.

2. The Lab loves his people and needs to be included with his family.

3. Great with kids, low-maintenance in terms of grooming, friendly and versatile, the Lab offers many wonderful pet qualities.

4. Labs, especially as puppies, can get a little crazy! Owners must commit themselves to training, as this means the difference between an enjoyable companion and an uncontrollable nuisance.

5. Look beyond the breeds popularity and widespread appeal to determine if the Lab really is the right dog for you, and vice versa!

I Love Black Labs, they are my favorite breed of dogs, ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also the Chocolate Labs are so cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The yellow or golden labs are, however dull breeds, because almost everyone owns them, and there is no excitement for these breeds.

My lab, Roscoe, is the best friend I have ever had. He can drive me crazy, and I will love every second of it.When I take Roscoe out on a walk (1-2x a day) lab people tell me that it takes a lab 5 years to settle down. At first I couldn't believe that it would ever take that long, but now, I am dreading it. Roscoe is almost 2 now, so hopefully we have a nice long future together. This site is awesome! I will be a regular, and will tell my dog friends about it also. Keep up the good work
