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.
An early report by a Colonel Hawker described the dog as “by far the best for any kind of shooting. He is generally black and no bigger than a Pointer, very fine in legs, with short, smooth hair and does not carry his tail so much curled as the other; is extremely quick, running, swimming and fighting….and their sense of smell is hardly to be credited….”

I love labs because of how loyal and loving they are and how they help to heal us as humans I suffer from anxiety having horrific anxiety attacks and panic attacks and the one thing that helped me with this was getting my lab Duncan. We have a great bond and he seems to understand when I am feeling low or anxious and will watch and sit with me doing things to cheer me up. When days are bad in work I am always greeted with a helicopter tail wagging madly when I get home. He loves me for who I am and doesnt mind my extra few pounds gained over Christmas. I love him and am so grateful we found each other – I am lucky to have a lab x
Since most of our dogs are strays and we don’t know their background you MUST have a safe (escape proof) fenced yard at your home for our dog, we won’t adopt to you without it (community yards, invisible and electronic fences will not work for us)!
Labradors can also be a little accident prone due to their high-energy, enthusiastic personality. This enthusiasm extends towards sometimes eating unusual things around the home or at the park, with a high risk of gastroenteritis or surgery for foreign bodies.
Hello, We adopted Chase on Monday…he is 99% wonderful with 1 bad habit! His previous owners (returned him to the breeder as they didn’t have “time” for him) taught him to jump up and give them hugs…I’ve never heard of anyone training a dog to jump up but now at 13 months old we have to teach him we do not find this acceptable behaviour…I personally turn my back on him and ignore him…any advice you could offer would be sincerely appreciated.

I’m looking for a family who spends lots of time outdoors, whether it’s the park, beach or backyard. I’m smart, so don’t expect me to always amuse myself, I flourish with training and being kept busy. If you love to run, take me with you. If you like dog parks, I do too.
Not too long ago, Labrador retrievers were considered a tad exotic. In the 1950s, the sporty mid-size breed was a suburban rarity, popular mainly among upper-crust Anglophiles who liked the idea of owning a dignified hunting dog. Today, however, Labs are the Levi’s jeans of purebred dogs. They’ve topped the American Kennel Club’s list of registered canines for 12 years straight. And not just topped, but dominated: The number of registered Labs is nearly three times the number of golden retrievers, the second most popular dog on the list.

We’re calling it now: Labrador retrievers will be the AKC’s number one most popular dog breed again in 2015, and to show you why they deserve the top spot, here are 14 reasons why Labradors are such awesome dogs:

Those traits are the foundation of the Lab’s personality, but each dog puts his own spin on them. Some are serious, some are clowns, some are reserved, some never meet a stranger. You might hear that Lab personalities vary by color, but it’s more likely that a dog’s temperament is affected by the breeder’s goals. Labs from breeders who produce top-winning field-trial dogs are more demanding when it comes to exercise and training. They are unsuited to lying around the house all day while everyone is at work or school. More laid back Labs typically come from a breeder who shows dogs in conformation.

You will love your Chocolate Labrador Retriever. We have an English Chocolate Labrador Female named Snickers. English Chocolates are shorter in size, but still have the broad head. We have an english cream golden retriever, also. What I’ve learned about labs has amazed me. They are so sensitive, and loving. Our golden retriever is very dominant, and the second golden retriever that we’ve owned. Both goldens were extremely dominant. But our chocolate lab female is so sweet. She never meets a stranger, loves and cries for anybody that she sees. When we first got her, about two months or so into owning her, I scolded her for bringing sticks into the yard, while I was trying to mow. I threw a stick at her, not hitting her, but she felt threatened, I guess. She went into our wooded area of the fenced-in backyard, to hide from me. I finished mowing about an hour later, but Snickers never came back down to our house. I went up in the woods to find her, and she was sitting in a corner of the fence crying by herself. She was scared to come back home. I picked her up in my arms, and told her that I would never scold her again. She licked my face all the way back down to the house. When I sat her down, she ran fiercely to Yukon our golden retriever, and then ran back to me, and sat down. I never SCOLDED her again. I love that chocolate lab more than anything in this world. She never had to fear me again. I LOVE CHOCOLATES!!!! Her sweetness has finally rubbed off on our Yukon Boy, Golden Retriever. HER AFFECTIONATENESS IS CONTAGIOUS!!!! Best dog that I have ever owned. Yukon has dropped his dominance, and has learned that Snickers is GOOD, and that he has to be GOOD, TOO!!!! BEST OF LUCK WITH YOUR NEW CHOCOLATE!!!!
