Labradors are medium-large, with males typically weighing 65–80 lb (29–36 kg) and females 55–70 lb (25–32 kg). The majority of the characteristics of this breed, with the exception of colour, are the result of breeding to produce a working retriever.

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.

I didn’t remember life without her; there was no good time to say goodbye. The nap of the fur on her ears, the depths of her brown eyes, her toothy grin; all indelibly marked on my heart. The night when I was eight and she gave birth to seven purebred labrador puppies under our house was the most exciting of my little life.
My belief is that ALL dogs are beautiful and loving and deserve the absolute best in life full of love and attention. Love’s Labradors are special. Love’s Labradors are superior in the following ways: looks, personalities, huntability, precise marking and controlled blinds, birdiness, loving, gentleness, solid energy and past and present proven National Champions and lineage. Love’s Labradors goes the extra measure that others should. Why do other breeders not go the distance? Because as long as there are buyers out there that buy dogs from less than the best in breeding, breeding facilities, breeding standards & health testing then the breeders remain at minimal standards. Raising their standards decreases the amount of money they make. I disagree with that; I expect the absolute best and so should you. Yes, my standards are superior. Perhaps someday ‘the other so-called breeders” will make my standards the normal. I look forward to that day as one should only have the best breed dogs supplied by qualified breeders to the public. I hope to have your business, but more importantly you should hope to have one of Love’s Labradors.
Most puppies will not show aggression at a very early age. This is mostly a learned behavior over time. Hence, when small puppies bite, they bite out of fun, playfulness, teething, or the need to have something in their mouth. At first it may be cute, but it should be corrected immediately since it will not be as cute when they are a 70 lbs. adult Lab! Puppies should be taught from a young age never to mouth or bite humans. How do you do this? Well, based on our experience, there are a couple of steps to curb this type of behavior. When a puppy bites, first use a sharp tone and say “No Bite!” If the puppy continues to mouth or bite, grab the back of its collar with your other hand and give a quick/sharp tug and say “No Bite!” again. The tug action should only serve to startle the pup and not hurt it in any way. It may take 4-5 times in a row of performing the tug action while saying “No Bite!”, but the pup will understand quickly that when it bites you, it receives something it doesn’t like (the tug action).
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”.
Labrador Retrievers have really cool personalities. They are friendly, loving, and very patient. They are almost never aggressive (mean). Labs love to be with people and they especially like children.
Pippa, First, Let me say I really enjoy your website and have learned so much about our lovable Labs. I have one Lab, Ollie. (See my picture on my email) He is my first Lab. I now can’t believe it has taken me this long to be a Lab pop. He is now 15 months old. Your 10 reasons are spot on! I can honestly say my Ollie has made me laugh EVERY DAY since I brought him home. He even seems to be patient with me as I learn to understand him. So, how about those characteristics: Humorous, Smart, Empathetic and some how patient with a first time pop!

In November 2000, President Bill Clinton signed into law an amendment that allowed retired US military working dogs (war dogs) to be adopted by personnel outside of the military, leaving the Vietnam War as the only war in US history in which American war dogs never returned home.
I love my chocolate lab Willow because she is faithful, funny and so intelligent – with more than a tiny bit of cheekiness! She brightens every day, no matter how bad it has been! I love how every time she sees me she acts like it has been ages, even when it has just been 10 minutes! I should get mad when she tries to jump in the bath with me (!) but I can’t help but laugh when she puts her whole head under the water! How she actually talks to me and my partner when we get home form work, we joke that she is telling us how her day has been and what she has been up to 🙂

The world’s best dog can’t be defined by a breed; it is any dog that, when you come home tired and flop onto the couch, will walk backwards and forwards under you so that your overhanging hand can stroke it without you even moving a muscle.

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.

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…

If you want to adopt a dog, read the advice below on how to do that.
IMPECCABLE MANNERS. My girl has the manners of a Victorian gentleman. Some have developed with training but some seem to have been innate; she has never pushed on the stairs, rarely at the door. She waits to have her feet wiped when we come in. She’ll flirt with passers by but she waits for an invitation say hello. When treats are being given out other dogs snatch and push but she waits patiently at the back with that sweet smile on her face. She has never tried to steal from my plate and won’t steal another dog’s ball. Once she jumped on the sofa to fuss my now ex and when I joked where was I going to sit she actually scooched over to make room!
