Raw feeding is quite a big topic, and it is both complicated and simple. Complicated because we tend to worry about the nutrients our dogs are getting and we can’t see a list of ingredients on a meaty bone.
A favourite disability assistance breed in many countries, Labradors are frequently trained to aid the blind, those who have autism, to act as a therapy dog, or to perform screening and detection work for law enforcement and other official agencies. Additionally, they are prized as sporting and hunting dogs.

The first sightings in Britain of the “St John’s dogs” or “Little Newfoundland dogs” were in the late 18th century. The Newfoundland fishing fleet docked regularly at Poole Harbour in Dorset, with its catch of cod and other fish kept on ice in the hold. One day the 2nd Earl of Malmesbury, an MP and keen sportsman, spotted some of the ships’ dogs retrieving fish that had been thrown out and decided that they were exactly what he needed for his “wildfowling” – duck shooting.
We have an 11 yr old black female. Wondering if any one has some advise. The older our girl gets the more needy she is becoming. She injured a hip, & is no longer able to play fetch or run around which always kept her happy. We’ve tried kong toys with treats etc. Any ideas how to keep her more engaged & self assured?
Hi Pippa, I have a lab couple, the female being fawn and the male black.. (and planning to get the third one).. The one word that describes them aptly would be difficult for me to describe.. Because they are cute, lovely, messy, silly all at the same time.. and they love each other so much as well.. Once when Smokey( the female lab) was ill and wont eat, Boozo (the male one) too stopped his favorite thing to do, ie, eating.. and Smokey wouldn’t sleep without putting her head on Boozo’s back.. So much do they care..They mean the world to me..
Labradors are high energy dogs. They require lots of exercise to keep them mentally stimulated, fit and to ward off their tendency towards obesity. As puppies they need up to 2 hours of training and exercise each day. As adults they are very sociable and are happy with families where they can join in on daily outings.
At around the same time, the fifth Duke of Buccleuch and his brother Lord John Scott started importing dogs from a Newfoundland fishing fleet that sailed into the River Clyde to use as gundogs on the Queensberry estates in the Scottish borders. They had also realised what an extraordinary dog the Labrador was and so established their own kennels in around 1835.

Vet insurance is highly encouraged! It is inexpensive and Labradors have their nose down on the ground and are athletes and try things they should NOT!! www.petinsurancereview.com. I personally use Embrace Insurance.
The transition back to city life was tough for both of us but together we resettled. She accompanied me on photo shoots and TV shows but her greatest coup came when she helped find me a wife. It was 2004 and we were walking together in Hyde Park when I spotted a beautiful blonde girl running with her Labrador Maggi. It was fate, and Marina and I married with marzipan figurines of the two Labradors on our wedding cake. The dogs even came on our honeymoon.
