In fairness I love all dogs. Growing up above my father’s veterinary surgery in central London we shared our flat with dogs, cats, parrots, veterinary nurses and an assortment of patients that would often spend the night.
Networking can help you find a dog that may be the perfect companion for your family. Most people who love Labradors love all Labradors. That’s why breed clubs have rescue organizations devoted to taking care of homeless dogs. The Labrador Club of America’s rescue network can help you find a dog that may be the perfect companion for your family. You can also search online for other Labrador rescues in your area.
Proper collar fit is vital for your dog’s health and safety, yet many dog owners don’t know how to determine whether their dogs’ collars fit correctly. Choose a collar that allows you to easily slip three fingers into the collar without touching your dog’s fur. Of course, you don’t want the collar to be too loose, but it should be one notch away from being able to slide over your dog’s head.
Eye problems are also possible in some Labradors, particularly progressive retinal atrophy, cataracts, corneal dystrophy and retinal dysplasia. Dogs which are intended to be bred should be examined by a veterinary ophthalmologist for an eye score.
As their name indicates, Labs were bred to retrieve downed prey such as ducks, grouse, rabbits etc. But a dog’s usual instinct is to bite down on flesh. Not so for the Labrador retriever, a breed with incredible control of jaw muscles that can be taught not to bite down. Watch Jake, a yellow Lab, carry a raw egg in his mouth without breaking it.

The cost of a Labrador Retriever puppy varies depending on his place of origin, whether he is male or female, what titles his parents have, and whether he is best suited for the show ring or a pet home. The puppy you buy should have been raised in a clean home environment, from parents with health clearances and show or working titles to prove that they are good specimens of the breed. Puppies should be temperament tested, vetted, dewormed, and socialized to give them a healthy, confident start in life.
Art prints, giclee prints and canvas prints from an original painting by Kevin Daniel. Kevin Daniel depicts mainly remote, undisturbed scenes of bears, deer and wolves as though viewed by a fellow creature. Daniel grew up in Minnesota, first painting portraits, then devoting himself to realistic depictions of the varieties and complexities of the wildlife that shaped his childhood. Inspired by Renoir, Rembrandt and Monet, Daniel strives to impart his works with panoramic scenery, meticulous detail and expert use of color. Daniel has amassed many honors, including Minnesota Wildlife Heritage Foundation Artist of the Year and induction into the U.S. Art Hall of Fame.
So where did the Labrador actually come from? Their origins are complex, combining Portugal, Newfoundland and Britain in their ancestry. They were originally Canadian fishing dogs, whose ancestors were taken on to work on the Portuguese cod trawlers off the remote Canadian island of Newfoundland.
Black Labs, Chocolate Labs and Yellow Labs, portrayed by Nigel Hemming. Nigel Hemming is regarded by many as one of the country’s leading painters of working dogs – his images often bearing a narrative theme. He says that he tries to paint pictures not simply of dogs, but about them. The appeal of his work led to his being presented with the Fine Art Trade Guild Published Artist Award in 1996.
Although popular for highly trained roles, and of course very photogenic and therefore frequently used on charities literature, the yellow Labrador can still make a magnificant pet and be popular in the show ring too.

Hip Dysplasia is a genetic disease that affects the hip joints of dogs. (It is also known as degenerative joint disease, arthrosis and osteoarthrosis) and can lead to pain and debilitation in your Labrador. When canine hip dysplasia (CHD) was first described in the 1930s, it was thought to be a rare condition. Dysplasia literally means abnormal, so hip dysplasia literally translates as abnormal formation of the hip socket.Despite years of research and the combined effort of the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals and responsible dog breeders, it has been impossible to eliminate hip dysplasia from labradors.Hip dysplasia can be seen in dogs as young as five or six months of age. In others, symptoms do not develop until after the dog has matured.

Love’s Labradors puppies strives for the best caring and most loving homes for their puppies. We seek adopted homes to have a fenced yard, be responsible home owners, be past Labrador Retriever owners or raised a puppy of some breed and the care they are going to give this new 4 legged Angel on Earth is beyond what others would call Heaven on Earth. I care for these kids and want the love and caring to continue to the level I would care and love them and even more. I have never pushed my Labrador Retriever Puppies to competitors, as I wish for them to be loved on more than anything. Love’s Labradors is not a breeder for the field trialer or the show ring.
We update this page several times per week as our Labs are adopted almost as quickly as they are coming in. You can email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask for a copy of our questionnaire, we won’t adopt to you without one.

Since we are not dogs, there are other methods to training our pups to keep their piranha teeth off our bodies and personal items. First, we need to look at the types of biting associated with any dog breed. They are:
Yes, they are big. But not too big. And they have unique personalities. Nari will chase a ball until she drops. She hates the lead, will swim in the surf with sharks and run up mountains. Ronda (they reckon she’s my fave) is a princess who hates to get her feet wet, loathes to walk, and loves it best when on the lead at my heel.
This is a remarkable piece with a special message to those who truly love the special connection between humans and dogs. Each of the four paw prints represents one of the four chambers of the heart. The curving line is actually the outline of a heart that is opened. When the human and dog connect t…
