Talking to you about Labrador Retrievers
is talking about the best all-around dog anyone could ask for. It is hard to find a more awesome dog than the Labrador Retriever. This wonderful canine is a great hunter (said to be the best), a gentle family pet even with young children, a guide dog for the blind, assistant for the handicapped, a contraband detective, active playmate and best loving pal. Geez, hardly more I can say---before you rush out that door to go buy one. But wait there is more . . .
The Labrador Retriever is a muscular, active dog who loves to be put to the challenge. She is smart and wants to use her mental and physical abilities so she enjoys the process of training. You can see her thinking as you work with her. Her face is such that you almost expect her to start talking to you. This fact is important to know about Labrador Retrievers: this super dog needs LOTS of exercise, especially lab puppies
, so it's not a good choice for a family of couch potatoes. She enjoys a good romp in a big yard or field, agility course or a long game of tug o' war or fetch. This dog needs to exercise those big muscles to be healthy and happy.
Right By Your Side
Loyalty would be a Labrador Retriever's middle name (if he had one). This lovely dog will watch over and protect toddlers or be their pillow by the fireplace. Remember these are the dogs that are chosen to be trained to guide the blind, hunt on rescue squads, and assist the handicapped. They are supremely loyal and on duty to those they love. They love to go places with you and are well behaved if trained young. Which brings me to an important bit of info.
This is not a wimpy kind of dog. This breed is best trained when very young and then continued throughout his life time. Since they are so big and active if you wait til they're full grown (around 7-8 months) you're going to have your hands full and some of the fun of training will turn into . . .well, work. That's not how you want to think about your best pal. One of the great things you will learn about this breed is they, even the Labrador Retriever puppies, really do want to please you. So by being responsible and getting out to obedience classes and being consistent at home (all family members being trained and consistent) you are doing yourself and your beloved friend a favor for his/her lifetime.
I could go on and on about Labrador Retrievers
and how delightful they are but you need to experience one yourself. There are Labrador Retriever rescues that you could visit to see how they are yourself. There are also caring breeders that treat their dogs and puppies well. You could make an appointment to visit and see how the dogs behave. Once you've played and cuddled with a Labrador Retriever it's going to be hard to not want one in your life!
