Many of the Labradors we are asked to re-home come to us because of changed family circumstances and most are well cared for and in good health. Some however, are old and infirm and need a good retirement. Others DO HAVE PROBLEMS, but in the right home can blossom into happy dogs again. As Labradors are sociable animals and enjoy company we will not usually home a dog where it will be left alone for more than 3 or 4 hours a day.
Nothing any good comes out on top of a popularity contest. My next dog will either be rescued from a shelter – and probably fall outside of the AKC’s elitist scope – or enormously expensive, with the health problems embedded over centuries of in-breeding to boot. I’ve already starting saving for my Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever.

It still seems amazing to me that some of the world’s most prolific swimming dogs came from the cold waters of Canada’s Atlantic coast. But then maybe that was the point. People had to find an alternative to getting in the water themselves.

It’s starting to seem like a doggone forgone conclusion: for the 25th year in a row, the labrador retriever has been found to be America’s favourite dog. American Kennel Club vice-president Gina DiNardo said the Lab – family-friendly, athletic, comes in three different colours – “checks all the boxes”.
But despite its popularity, in nearly 140 years of the Westminster Dog Show, a labrador has never been named best in show. It’s one indication that the labrador, while a stalwart of the scene, might not be universally loved – and certainly, the AKC’s result has proved controversial amongst Guardian Crescent View Labradors we’re striving to produce Labs you love to live with- healthy, calm, intelligent, and loyal companions.

The Lab has a double coat — a soft, insulating undercoat topped with a short, hard, protective outer layer. Labs shed heavily, and brushing them once or twice a week will help keep the fur from flying.
Talk to the breeder, describe exactly what you’re looking for in a dog, and ask for assistance in selecting a puppy. Breeders see the puppies daily and can make uncannily accurate recommendations once they know something about your lifestyle and personality.
Before individual Labradors can be included in the Canine Health Information Center (CHIC) database, the Labrador Retriever Club requires them to have hip and elbow certifications from the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) and certification from the Canine Eye Registry Foundation (CERF).
Heartworms are foot-long worms that live in the heart, lungs, and major blood vessels of pets. It sounds like something from a horror movie, but worse… it’s a reality. Whilst US dog owners rightly worry about heartworm, this parasite can also infect cats and ferrets, along with wild mammals such as coyotes, wolves, and foxes.

You can reduce hair-fall with daily brushing and ensuring their diet is rich in proteins and oils to support skin health and promote hair retention. Apart from daily brushing Labradors are considered relatively low maintenance when it comes to grooming.
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.
