Labs also see veterinarians frequently because they have eaten something they shouldn’t. It’s not unusual for Labs to undergo multiple surgeries to remove hand towels, toys, corn cobs and other items they’ve swallowed that then cause an intestinal blockage.
Elbow Dysplasia. This common cause of fore-limb lameness occurs in many large breeds and is caused by several possible defects, including osteochondrosis and an incongruous growth rate between the radius and ulnar of the fore-arm. This disorder is another reason not to overfeed a growing Labrador.

Thanks so much for this wonderful, informative article. My blind daughter is now in NY for a 3-week training with her guide dog, a black lab. She’s so happy with him. I’m so grateful for all the work many people have put into providing, raising & training this dog.
I love my Lab! She’s the sweetest girl ever, love kids, gentle, patient, kind, sweet as can be. We use to have a black lab before April came along but he was hit by a car, he has a special spot under a big tree in our yard, because of him we instantly fell in love with labs. I tell ya, once you get a lab in your life, no other breed will surpass your desire. They become part of your family and you grow to love them as such. God bless them labs.
Now may be the right time to feed raw for you, or it may be the right time to feed kibble. Your circumstances are unique so only you can decide. For those of you (the majority) that will be feeding kibble. Let’s look at a few more concerns
The AKC describes the Labrador’s temperament as a kind, pleasant, outgoing and tractable nature. Labradors’ sense of smell allows them to home in on almost any scent and follow the path of its origin. They generally stay on the scent until they find it. Navies, military forces and police forces use them as detection dogs to track down smugglers, thieves, terrorists and black marketers. They are known to have a very soft feel to the mouth, as a result of being bred to retrieve game such as waterfowl. They are prone to chewing objects (though they can be trained to abandon this behaviour).

Aren’t Labs Something?? I bought my first lab, and english chocolate lab female. She was a leftover puppy, from the breeder that we had just bought an English Cream Golden Retriever from. I paid more for the English Cream Golden, than I did for the last chocolate lab that they had. He weighed in at $1,000.00, while little Snickers cost us $650.00. My Wife wanted to give away the English Cream Golden. He’s barky, and was dominant for a while after Snickers came. We had to get a behaviorist to come to our house for 6 weekly sessions. Yukon hated Snickers so much, since we guess, he was here first for about 3 months, before Snickers came. He would growl at me, just trying to wipe off his paws. Leadership exercises got the respect back, and now he is a good dog. But Snickers was never mean. Chocolate Labs are so special, and I’ve been told that it’s not just the Chocolates that are great dogs. The black, yellow, chocolate labs are all SWEET!!!! But I’ve only owned this English Chocolate Lab. You’re right, it’s fun to spend all of your free time with the babies. My two dogs are very special, and fun to be with. Dogs are so much more fun to be with than people. Dogs love you no matter what. Dealing with people today, is a rat race. I lease apartments, and dealing with tenants can be a PITA!!!! But when you get home to your RETRIEVERS, you forget all about the stressful day that you just encountered. LOVE THOSE LABS AND GOLDENS!!!!
Finding a healthy one and keeping him healthy. Unfortunately, Labrador Retrievers have become a risky breed for long-term health. Many Labs do live to 12 or 13, but many others are lost at age 7 or 8 years of age, to crippling joint and bone diseases, heart disease, epilepsy, or cancer.

Careful breeders screen their breeding dogs for genetic disease and breed only the healthiest and best-looking specimens, but sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas and a puppy develops one of these diseases despite good breeding practices. Advances in veterinary medicine mean that in most cases the dogs can still live a good life.
The modern Labrador’s ancestors originated on the island of Newfoundland, now part of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The founding breed of the Labrador was the St. John’s water dog, a breed that emerged through ad-hoc breedings by early settlers of the island in the 16th century. The forebears of the St. John’s Dog are not known but, were likely a random-bred mix of English, Irish, and Portuguese working breeds. The Newfoundland (known then as the Greater Newfoundland) is likely a result of the St. John’s Dog breeding with mastiffs brought to the island by the generations of Portuguese fishermen who had been fishing offshore since the 16th century. The smaller short-coated St. John’s Dog (also known then as the Lesser Newfoundland) was used for retrieval and pulling in nets from the water. These smaller dogs were the forebears of the Labrador Retriever. The white chest, feet, chin, and muzzle – known as tuxedo markings – characteristic of the St. John’s Dog often appear in modern Lab mixes, and will occasionally manifest in Labradors as a small white spot on the chest (known as a medallion) or stray white hairs on the feet or muzzle.
Every dog breed has their own unique characteristics. Sometimes that can make them difficult to identify. Many of our customers are shopping for the dog lover in their life. Matching dog gifts to the real life breed can be tricky. Compare these real life Black Labradors to the dog you are shopping for so you know you have the right breed!
5. Labradorian is a universal language. I have traveled the world. I can be in a foreign country where I don’t even speak the language but when I see a Lab I can usually pull my cell phone out and show the human a picture of my Labs and they understand that I need to sit down with their Lab and get licked and loved on. All truly civilized societies have Labs.
Labradors have a reputation as a very even-tempered breed and an excellent family dog. This includes a good reputation with children of all ages and other animals. Some lines, particularly those that have continued to be bred specifically for their skills at working in the field (rather than for their appearance), are particularly fast and athletic. Their fun-loving boisterousness and lack of fear may require training and firm handling at times to ensure it does not get out of hand—an uncontrolled adult can be quite problematic. Females may be slightly more independent than males. Labradors mature at around three years of age; before this time they can have a significant degree of puppy-like energy, often mislabelled as being hyperactive. Because of their enthusiasm, leash-training early on is suggested to prevent pulling when full-grown. Labradors often enjoy retrieving a ball endlessly (often obsessively) and other forms of activity (such as agility, frisbee, or flyball).
It is important that your Lab start learning his manners when he is young. Spend lots of time with him from an early age so he is comfortable with you. Roll him over, touch his feet, look at his teeth, and brush him gently. This will help him get used to being handled and he will be a better companion when he is older.
Good-looking, smart and fun-loving, the Lab has a a lot going for him. He’s large, but not too large, he’s calm and easygoing when he’s not exuberantly fetching a tennis ball or a bird. He’s a do-it-all kind of dog.
The Labrador breed standard says that temperament is as much a hallmark of the breed as the “otter tail.” The ideal Labrador is kindly, outgoing and tractable, eager to please, and tends not to be aggressive toward people or other animals.
Our Sugar is now 14 years old and unfortunately has to be put down on Saturday. She is our family’s whole world and we are going to miss her – her sweet, gentle nature and irrepressible optimism and her absolute believe that there will always be more food in her bowl 🙂
Dogs come in all shapes and sizes,as do our coats and jackets. This chart will help you identify the correct size for your dog. In most cases, the girth measurement (taken around the widest part of the chest or rib cage) and weight will be the best indicators of fit size. The Length measurement shown here is from the base of the neck to the base of the tail.
As a brief summary, the primary well documented benefits of raw feeding are great dental health (with self-cleaning teeth), small quantities of virtually odourless and (important for dogs with allergies) a diet free from grains.
