Our 2 months old Labrador retriever know now how to sit and stay in a place before she eat. She’s adorable and sweet, loves to cuddle and play. She’s also not growling even if we touch her or walk around near her unlike some other dog owners problem. Before I read about this some article about ‘growling while eating for puppies’, I didn’t even know then that growling while eating is unfortunately common for the most of the dogs that means the dog is afraid for their food to take away from them and a simple warning like ”back off!” for them to secure their food from you. I’m also taking away my puppy labs food away from her calmly and give her more treats for being calm and not growling at me for doing that. Truly, Labrador retrievers loves to eat and eat and eat. As long as you gave them proper diet and healthy or high quality dog food there’s no need to worry. But, Labrador can be obese so it’s a must to control their eating habit and give them proper exercise and training. If you’re looking for a lovely affectionate pet, I highly recommend for you to choose Labrador Retriever especially if you have kids at home. Hope this’ll help for some! ps: any kind of dog can be as affectionate to you as you are to them if you are true honest to yourself on giving them your love. peace and love!

Customs and Border Protection Agencies often use Labrador retrievers to detect contraband, especially plant and animal products that, if imported into the country, could cause damage to the native ecosystem and the economy. If you’re wondering, the beagle—also in the AKC Sporting Group—is the other popular dog breed used by government agencies.
Vet insurance is highly encouraged! It is inexpensive and Labradors have their nose down on the ground and are athletes and try things they should NOT!! www.petinsurancereview.com. I personally use Embrace Insurance.

4. Labs don’t hold a grudge. I have worked with Heart of Texas Lab Rescue for many years. We get Labbies into our program who have been horribly abused, and have every reason to distrust people. But after some love they all come out of their shells and love again.
NOTE: The pictures make him look black, but I can attest that he is the beautiful chocolate color these labs are known for having. Great displayed only condition – one small blemish in paint on his ri…
Dogs are living, breathing, sentient creatures that each come with their own personality and set of characteristics, just like people. Because we rarely know the backgrounds of the dogs in our program, we can’t make definitive statements about their health or temperaments. We can only provide information about our observations of the dog while it is in our program and our homes. We do not take our dogs to dog parks and generally don’t recommend them for rescue dogs, there are too many unknowns.
Hi I have three dogs a springer spaniel a wire haired daschund and a black lab,they are all great friends.My lab was born with elbow and hip dysphasia ,he is now five,He is such a lively boy and loves to fetch tennis balls,I can’t throw them for him ,as it jars his joints so I spend lots of time hiding them so he can find them.It has been very difficult to stop him running too much and playing with other dogs as he is like most labs very sociable.I have always had recall problems ,I bought your book total recall and found it very helpful ,today he came back to.the whistle while playing with another dog!!!!
In his book Excursions In and About Newfoundland During the Years 1839 and 1840, the geologist Joseph Beete Jukes describes the St. John’s water dog. “A thin, short-haired, black dog came off-shore to us to-day. The animal was of a breed very different from what we understand by the term Newfoundland dog in England. He had a thin, tapering snout, a long thin tail, and rather thin, but powerful legs, with a lank body, – the hair short and smooth.” wrote Jukes. “These are the most abundant dogs in the country…They are no means handsome, but are generally more intelligent and useful than the others…I observed he once or twice put his foot in the water and paddled it about. This foot was white, and Harvey said he did it to “toil” or entice the fish. The whole proceeding struck me as remarkable, more especially as they said he had never been taught anything of the kind.”
2. The meaning of true love as in the feeling that someone has your best interests at heat and won’t let you down or leave you because she cares for you as much as you care for her (see below for more of an explanation).
The foundational breed of what is now the Labrador Retriever was known as the St. John’s water dog, St. John’s dog, or Lesser Newfoundland. When the dogs were later brought to England, they were named after the geographic area known as “the Labrador” (they were known as Labrador Retrievers because they “retrieved” in the Labrador Sea) or simply Labrador to distinguish them from the larger Newfoundland breed, even though the breed was from the more southern Avalon Peninsula.

We have a white and black lab ( litter mates), and they are remarkable. Easily trained, always ready, and very intelligent. They know their property and don’t leave the fenceless yard. They go to the property line and bark for the neighbor to come out to say hello. They know probably 50 or 60 words and help out around the house, whether bringing in the groceries, retrieving items, or fetching my son’s slippers.
Although they will sometimes bark at noise, especially noise from an unseen source (“alarm barking”), Labradors are usually not noisy or territorial. They are often very easygoing and trusting with strangers and therefore are not usually suitable as guard dogs.
Choose a comfortable cloth, webbing, or leather collar. Bare chains are too rough and can get caught on obstacles, leading to injury. If you must use a chain-type choke collar, choose a style that features a protective fabric cover encasing the chain. Collars that encircle the muzzle are excellent for firm control without discomfort, and do not restrict breathing the way traditional choke collars do.

The breed tends to shed hair twice annually or regularly throughout the year in temperate climates. Some Labradors shed considerably; however, individual Labradors vary. Labrador hair is usually short and straight, and the tail is quite broad and strong. The webbed toes of the Labrador Retriever make them excellent swimmers. The webbing between their toes can also serve as a “snowshoe” in colder climates and keep snow from balling up between their toes—a condition that can be painful to other breeds with hair between the toes. Their interwoven coat is also relatively waterproof, providing more assistance for swimming.
We now have Frank a 15 month old Black Lab he didn’t make the grade as a gun dog so he came to us, he is a younger version of Tara our previous dog with all the same traits, the house was empty till he arrived .
Puppies of all colours can potentially occur in the same litter. Colour is determined primarily by three genes. The first gene (the B locus) determines the density of the coat’s eumelanin pigment granules, if that pigment is allowed: dense granules result in a black coat, sparse ones give a chocolate coat. The second (E) locus determines whether the eumelanin is produced at all. A dog with the recessive e allele will produce only phaeomelanin pigment and will be yellow regardless of its genotype at the B locus. The genes known about previously have had their number increased by the introduction of the K locus, where the dominant “black” allele KB is now known to reside. Black or chocolate Labradors therefore must have the KB allele. Yellow Labradors are determined at the E locus, so the K locus is irrelevant in determining their colour. Variations in numerous other genes control the subtler details of the coat’s colouration, which in yellow Labradors varies from white to light gold to a fox red. Chocolate and black Labradors’ noses will match the coat colour.

By the early 1880s original Buccleuch strain had all but died out, just six decades on from those original purchases on the Clyde. This could well have signalled the end of the Scottish lineage of the Labrador, were it not for the third Earl of Malmesbury, who ‘gave the duke a pair, descended from our own imported dogs’ and the bloodline was continued when they were mated with the duke’s dogs.
A nice Lab puppy can usually be purchased for $700 to $1,500. For this price you should expect the puppies to have been raised in a clean environment, from parents with health clearances and show or field championships to prove that they are good specimens of the breed. Puppies have been temperament tested, vetted, dewormed, and socialized to give them a healthy, confident start in life.
Artist Kay Johns was born in Hertfordshire, England in 1964. She spent most of her childhood around horses, riding around the beautiful Chiltern Hills and surrounding countryside. Always having a house full of pets, and an extreme passion for painting and drawing, painting pets and wildlife was an obvious choice of subject matter.
I’ve owned black and chocolate labs. I’ve had many friends that have had Blacks, Chocolates, and Yellow Labs. I’ve hunted with all 3 of the Labs and some of each color have been better than others. Both have a lot of energy. Both are great family dogs. We’ve also many other breeds as well that were good dogs. To each dog his own. It depends on how you raise and train the dog. A lab is bred to make the owner proud. That is why I believe they are one of the most loyal dogs a human can own. Every dog is a good dog if raised right, but labs have always held a special place in my heart. I have a 13 year old female black lab and he has been an incredible pet. I like to hunt pheasant and unfortunately we could never break her from being gun shy. She was always the fastest dog at the dog park retrieving the dummies and had a drive that would never quite. It broke my heart because she would have been one of the best pheasant dogs ever, but she just didn’t like the sound of a gun that would freeze her up. She is still a wonderful family dog. Since she was gun shy it forced me to get another lab and this time I chose a Male Chocolate Lab. He was the biggest male of the liter and the most aggressive that I could see. I liked the way he would keep his nose to the ground and he definitely picked me. When all the puppies were running around playing he chased me across the yard and basically begged me to take him home. I have 4 kids now (8, 6, 4, 2) and he was by far the best family dog of my two labs. He would lay on the ground and all 4 could jump all over him and he enjoyed every minute of it. They would play fetch for hours with him in the yard. He was a very slow, but effective bird hunter with a great nose. My wife called him my shadow because he was always by my side where ever I would go in the house or the yard. I had to put him down a few days ago because he got liver cancer and it was the hardest thing I ever had to do to put him down. Both are great dogs, but in my case the Chocolate lab had the biggest hold on our families heart. We’ve already picked out the newest member of the family and can’t wait to pick up our new Male Chocolate Lab in a few weeks. You can’t go wrong with any lab as long as you take the time to train and exercise them. They have a lot of energy so make sure you take the time every day with them or do the dog a favor and don’t get one.
Labs are active, unless they’re sleeping. It was probably a Lab who inspired the saying “A tired dog is a good dog.” Joint and overall health permitting, be prepared to give a Lab a couple of half-hour walks or runs daily to meet his exercise needs. The best part about having a Lab is that there are any number of fun ways you can provide him with physical activity and mental stimulation. Take him swimming, teach him to run alongside your bike once he is physically mature at 18 to 24 months of age, go hiking, make him the first mate on your boat, or get involved in dog sports such as agility, obedience, rally, tracking, flyball, freestyle — you name it, a Lab has probably done it. However, it’s always a good idea to check with your vet before starting a new exercise program with your dog.
I have been privileged in life to have had black Labradors for over 20 years. I don’t think I could survive without the love of a black lab by my side. Rosie was our first and was almost 13 when she died. She was the first to come to us and showed me the love of a lab. She was so loyal, loving and giving. Molly died a year ago today. She was 12 and had a long battle with Cushings Disease. Molls was the most softest, sensitive lab ever. She was beautiful in looks and nature. Molls was always slow time and taught me to appreciate life slowly. We are left with little Charlie now 7 years old. She is very naughty and mischievous. Always a tom boy, nothing girlie! Always happy and enthusiastic. The joy a black Labrador is gives is the best thing ever. God bless Moll xxx
I breed Labrador Retriever puppies that are 100% birdy in the field by age 6 months with a bird desire and willingness to learn by your methods and not be on their own agenda. By producing Labrador Retriever puppies that are American Field plus some lines have half English or British, Scottish or Irish lines in there to help balance the steadiness out in the field as your hunting partner or at home with a level head. Love’s Labradors believes in the original look of the Labrador 100 years ago with a nice blocky square head, balance structure to the body, otter tails along with natural hunting instincts that also makes it easy enough for an average person to train.
