Biting or mouthing is common is young puppies. From the beginning, they use it as a form of play with their litter-mates. It is a social interaction between dogs that is healthy in the beginning. However, the mom of the litter has been known to swat down, growl at, or ignore such behavior when it becomes too much. This is a prime example of the “dog pack” method of letting the pup know when biting is allowed and when to just knock it off!
My belief is that ALL dogs are beautiful and loving and deserve the absolute best in life full of love and attention. Love’s Labradors are special. Love’s Labradors are superior in the following ways: looks, personalities, huntability, precise marking and controlled blinds, birdiness, loving, gentleness, solid energy and past and present proven National Champions and lineage. Love’s Labradors goes the extra measure that others should. Why do other breeders not go the distance? Because as long as there are buyers out there that buy dogs from less than the best in breeding, breeding facilities, breeding & health testing then the breeders remain at minimal standards. Raising their standards decreases the amount of money they make. I disagree with that; I expect the absolute best and so should you. Yes, my standards are superior. Perhaps someday ‘the other so-called breeders” will make my standards the normal. I look forward to that day as one should only have the best breed dogs supplied by qualified breeders to the public. I hope to have your business, but more importantly you should hope to have one of Love’s Labradors.
I love my black Lab Samson (aka: Mr Woofkins) because he gives me unconditional love and loyalty. He goes everywhere with me, (except work unfortunately as there are a few people there that could do with a Lab cuddle) and when I wake up in the morning, he is laying snuggled up to me with his head resting on me and gives me lots of face licks to tell me that he wants his breakfast. He makes life worth living, I love my dog more than anything in the world. Thanks Sam for making me happy.

Yes they’re great with kids, yes they have an even temperament, yes they’ll eat all your leftovers and minimise your waste like no other dog, but this is the real appeal of the breed – for unbroken meaningful eye contact between the species, labradors are unbeatable.
Good breeders will welcome your questions about temperament, health clearances and what the dogs are like to live with and come right back at you with questions of their own about what you’re looking for in a dog and what kind of life you can provide for him.
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.

The Labrador Retriever has consistently ranked as the most popular purebred dog in the United States for more than 10 years, according to the American Kennel Club. The AKC registers more than a hundred thousand new Labrador Retrievers each year, but when you take into account all the Labs never registered at all, or registered with another organization such as the United Kennel Club, the popularity of this stable, family-friendly dog is truly staggering.
I love my lab, because labs seem to see into your mind and respond to us as if they understand what is going on with us. Labs seem to crawl into our soul and be on the same wavelenghth in a weird uncanny way.
All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems, just as all people have the potential to inherit a particular disease. Run, don’t walk, from any breeder who does not offer a health guarantee on puppies, who tells you that the breed is 100 percent healthy and has no known problems, or who tells you that her puppies are isolated from the main part of the household for health reasons. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about health problems in the breed and the incidence with which they occur in her lines. Here’s a brief rundown on what you should know about some of the medical conditions that can affect the Labrador’s health.
I lost my black lab Daytona to kidney failure. She was a rescue and the center of my world. It happened very quickly and devastated me. My husband and I decided to join a local rescue and adopted our twin, litter mates, Coco and Wonka. I said I could not do black again so we did chocolate. They have filled a huge whole in my heart. No matter how bad a day they are there to love and kiss and nothing comes better than two.
I then rescued a lab puppy 3 years after Candy died. His name was Jackson. He was the best boy that ever was. We lost him when he was 4 to some disease which 3 vets could not diagnose or treat him after surgery and hospitalizations. We miss him so.
Pippa, First, Let me say I really enjoy your website and have learned so much about our lovable Labs. I have one Lab, Ollie. (See my picture on my email) He is my first Lab. I now can’t believe it has taken me this long to be a Lab pop. He is now 15 months old. Your 10 reasons are spot on! I can honestly say my Ollie has made me laugh EVERY DAY since I brought him home. He even seems to be patient with me as I learn to understand him. So, how about those characteristics: Humorous, Smart, Empathetic and some how patient with a first time pop!

Providing enough exercise and mental stimulation. Labrador Retrievers were developed to be hunting dogs. They are athletic dogs who need regular opportunities to vent their energy and do interesting things. Otherwise they will become bored, which they may express by becoming rambunctious and destructive.
Framed Labrador Retriever Art frequently features them helping people with disabilities, as they are famous for being great as assistance dogs. They are an invaluable help for people suffering from autism, blindness or deafness and are extremely patient. Many centuries ago, the breeding program revolved around their ability of helping hunters and the Labrador retrievers proved to be so successful that they were exported all over the world.

Also more independent — though quite biddable and responsive to obedience training, some Labrador Retrievers can have a noticeable stubborn streak. Some have necks like bulls and barely notice tugs on the leash.
