The brutal, heartbreaking reality of having a dog of course is that we will inevitably outlive our beloved hound. Losing Inca was like losing a limb. She’d had a good life. She lived to 12. I cried for a week. I suffered panic attacks. Only those who have loved a dog will understand the grief. We scattered her ashes in the park and she has a sapling dedicated to her, Inca’s Tree. I hang a Bonio biscuit from it on her birthday each year.
Why include our own personal experience with such a negative behavior? Kindly, it is to illustrate that most negative behaviors can be corrected with persistent and consistent training. The same goes for territorial biting. The owner need only research what caused the behavior and slowly recondition the dog to understand that they have nothing to be territorial or fearful about. If you are unsure how to proceed with such training, please ask your veterinarian if they can recommend a dog behaviorist to assist you further.
Years ago I seen my dad hunt with dogs and love them like a person.When I got a lab for my daughter I actually got a son a life long friend and an animal in all my life I swear I could not love more.Every thing they do makes me wonder do labs actually have,all our senses feelings and emotions except the ability to tell us I love my white lab and black lab who have totally different personas equally .I suffered depression for along time they where the only thing that brought me out of it
The high intelligence, initiative and self-direction of Labradors in working roles is exemplified by dogs such as Endal, who during a 2001 emergency placed an unconscious human being in the recovery position, retrieved his mobile phone from beneath the car, fetched a blanket and covered him, barked at nearby dwellings for assistance, and then ran to a nearby hotel to obtain help. A number of Labradors have also been taught to assist their owner in removing money and credit cards from ATMs with prior training.

And before you decide to buy a puppy, consider whether an adult Labrador Retriever might better suit your needs and lifestyle. Puppies are loads of fun, but they require a lot of time and effort before they grow up to become the dog of your dreams. An adult Labrador Retriever may already have some training and will probably be less active, destructive and demanding than a puppy.
You can avoid some negative traits by choosing an ADULT dog from an animal shelter or rescue group. With an adult dog, you can easily see what you’re getting, and plenty of adult Labrador Retrievers have already proven themselves not to have negative characteristics.

SAFETY. For all of her gentle, patient, kindness I still find her to be a great guard dog too. She has great instincts when somebody is acting strangely nearby (she’s flushed a few weirdos out of bushes) and though she is very rarely vocal if she gets “spooked” (i.e. she can hear a noise but the cause is hidden) she will be bold and challenge it. I don’t think burglars would get in without us knowing!
I love my lab because she’s kind and has the biggest heart. She wakes me each day for her wee and much needed breakfast. She never misses meal! She brings me joy each day. There are days were I look at her and say “Bella, ur the reason I keep going”. She completes my life. Best dog / friend / companian I could have ever asked for. I think god must have sent an angel to be there for me, to be my pillar and keep me sane. 🙂
