It may have been a shotgun that set the standard of elite production methods and fine quality designs, but it is the retriever found on our logo that makes this company a family business. We are fanatical about Labs so why wouldn’t we make our logo a Labrador Retriever. Everybody loves labs, right? But the love of labs is only part of our story. About the same time Over Under shotguns were coming on the scene and changing the sport of wing-shooting, a new breed of hunting and retrieving dogs had heads turning. The first Labrador Retriever registered with the American Kennel Club was in 1917. This pup was a product of decades of hard work and selective breeding. Their strength, versatility, hardiness, friendliness, looks, smarts and eager to please attitude has made the Labrador Retriever the most popular dog in America for hunters and dog lovers alike for 19 years running. The breed continues to be the total package not only for a working dog but for a family dog as well. I came to know and love these dogs at a very young age as I was surrounded by them, but it wasn’t until after owning, and training my very own Chocolate Lab, that I began to truly understand what amazing animals and friends they quickly become. Their undeniable good looks as well as their unwavering devotion and affection for mankind sets them apart from the average hunting and retrieving dog. We knew from day one they were the perfect choice for our logo. Furthermore, to show our great love and appreciation for man’s best friend, we’ve developed a line of quality dog collars & leashes crafted by products made only in the USA.
Labrador Retrievers are registered in three colours: black (a solid black colour), yellow (considered from cream to fox-red), and chocolate (medium to dark brown). Some dogs are sold as silver pure-bred Labradors, but purity of those bloodlines is currently disputed by breed experts including breed clubs and breed councils. Some major kennel clubs around the world allow silver Labradors to be registered, but not as silver. The Kennel Club (England) requires that they be registered as “Non-recognised.” Occasionally, Labradors will exhibit small amounts of white fur on their chest, paws, or tail, and rarely a purebred Lab will exhibit brindling stripes or tan points similar to a Rottweiler. These markings are a disqualification for show dogs but do not have any bearing on the dog’s temperament or ability to be a good working or pet dog.
Labs Rule!! Gracie my 5 y/o Lab stretches with me laying on her back while I stretch my hamstrings(legs in the air)..Oliver 2 y/o follows me to the toilet each morning and waggs until I talk to him with my nasty morning breath in his nose…I will never have any dog but a Lab(s)
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.
Our 16 year old black lab has dwindled from 65-70 lbs down to barely 30lbs and has switched to grazing instead of gobbling his bowl. His eyes and ears are overly productive requiring cleaning every 2 days. I know it’s irritating him because he shakes his head a lot, however because of his decreased muscles he falls down when he shakes his head, as well as randomly when walking. He can’t fetch his ball anymore without falling. He’s blind in one eye, and definitely going deaf. His gas smells of death, his breath horrible. He holds his bm until he has an accident inside. All this and his mind is still that of a pup. He’s been my friend for 12 and I think we are saying goodbye this week.
This sweatshirt is a good quality shirt, true to size and as the title says has a great Black Lab picture on it! It was bought as a gift for someone whose dog looks just like the one on the shirt. She loves the shirt! The shipping was prompt and as promised was here in time for Christmas! The seller has a good professional manner and is reliable enough that I would shop from him again.

I have a 4 1/2 month old black lab name GRYFFIN, he is my 3rd Lab in my adult life time and he is my best friend and I have only had him since July of this year. He is smart as hell, very trainable at every level so far. I cannot be happier

They first came to Europe around 200 years ago when those trawlers docked at Poole in Dorset on their way back to Portugal, and this is where these ‘Little Newfoundland’ dogs were first sighted in Britain. Actually the name Labrador is slightly confusing.
They are the most common colour of Labrador, due to the way in which their colour genes are inherited. Perhaps for this reason, they are a little overlooked when it comes to people’s top picks for the best Labrador colour, but they are still really remarkable dogs.
