Takođe, treba da imate u vidu da između 4. i 12. nedelje štene gubi imunološku zaštitu koju je dobijalo od majke, pa je potrebno što pre izgraditi njegov sopstveni imuni sistem. Ono što je takođe važno jeste da pas uvek mora na raspolaganju imati dovoljne količine sveže i čiste vode. Naime, 25% krvi psa čini voda, pa ako dođe do dehidratacije to može dovesti do pojave raznih simptoma bolesti. Voda pročišćava organizam psa i reguliše telesnu temperaturu. Imajte na umu da je sistem organa za varenje kod štenaca labradora jako osetljiv i još uvek nerazvijen, pa treba voditi računa o hrani koja mu se daje. Kuvane kosti svakako treba da budu deo ishrane vašeg psa, jer sadrže kalcijum, belančevine i druge hranljive materije. Mladim psima bi trebalo davati velike cevaste kosti pomoću kojih će oni jačati zube i desni, a treba izbegavati pileće kosti i kosti koje sadrže šiljke. Na osnovu izmeta se najbolje može utvrditi da li je ishrana vašeg psa pravilna i šta treba menjati. Zdrava stolica treba da bude braon boje i kobasičastog izgleda. Tvrda i bela ili pak previše tamna stolica, ukazuje na neke nepravilnosti u ishrani. Treba imati u vidu da labradori mogu da pojedu velike količine hrane i da su skloni gojenju, a gojaznost može dovesti do brojnih zdravstvenih problema.
The lovable Lab needs to be around his family, and is definitely not a backyard dog. If he's left alone for too long, he'll probably tarnish his saintly reputation: A lonely, bored Lab is apt to dig, chew, or find other destructive outlets for his energy. Labs show some variation in their activity levels, but all of them need activity, both physical and mental. Daily 30-minute walks, a romp at the dog park, or a game of fetch, are a few ways to help your Lab burn off energy. However, a puppy should not be taken for too long walks and should play for a few minutes at a time. Labrador Retrievers are considered "workaholics," and will exhaust themselves. It is up to you to end play and training sessions. Labs have such good reputations that some owners think they don't need training. That's a big mistake. Without training, a rambunctious Lab puppy will soon grow to be a very large, rowdy dog. Luckily, Labs take to training well — in fact, they often excel in obedience competitions. Start with puppy kindergarten, which not only teaches your pup good canine manners, but helps him learn how to be comfortable around other dogs and people. Look for a class that uses positive training methods that reward the dog for getting it right, rather than punishing him for getting it wrong. You'll need to take special care if you're raising a Lab puppy. Don't let your Lab puppy run and play on very hard surfaces such as pavement until he's at least two years old and his joints are fully formed. Normal play on grass is fine, as is puppy agility, with its one-inch jumps. Like all retrievers, the Lab is mouthy, and he's happiest when he has something, anything, to carry in his mouth. He's also a chewer, so be sure to keep sturdy toys available all the time — unless you want your couch chewed up. And when you leave the house, it's wise to keep your Lab in a crate or kennel so he's can't get himself into trouble chewing things he shouldn't.
Labrador Retrievers are registered in three colours:[28] 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.[32][33] 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."[34] 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.[35] 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.
My name is Misty and I'd like to tell you a little bit about myself.  I like to take walks, and I'm pretty good on the leash, except when it comes to squirrels. I think I can catch them but my dreams never come true.  I also love to play ball and will do that as long as you want.  I am very good in the house.  My foster mom is so happy with me because I don't get into anything. I don't mind going in the crate and I don't make a mess in there, either.  I have a foster brother here, and we get along just fine.  I ride well in the car and enjoy looking out the window. Most of all, I'm just a very loving and friendly girl who needs you to love me and take care of me forever.  I hope to meet you soon.

The Vietnam War is the only war in American history in which US war dogs, which were officially classified by the military as "military working dogs," were not allowed to officially return home after the war.[88] Classified as expendable equipment, of the approximate 4,000 US K-9s deployed to the Vietnam War, it is estimated that only about 200 US war dogs survived Vietnam to be put into service at other outposts stationed overseas.[89] Aside from these 200 or so, the remaining canines who were not killed in action were either euthanised or left behind.[90]

From Marcy's foster mom – she’s an absolute sweetheart.  She was surrendered to a local shelter after getting out of the backyard with her dog buddy.  She hasn't tried to escape while with here with us.  I do think she was kept outside quite a bit so we’ve had some house training to do but we are making progress there.  We crate her at night and she goes in easily and is quiet all night.  Daisy is fine on walks and getting better each time.  She rides great in the car though I have the feeling she hasn’t had many car rides.

Hurricane Irma may have devastated the Florida Keys, but the dedicated staff and volunteers behind the region’s SPCA shelter are determined not to let it define them. The shelter was flooded, the roof was left in pieces, and fencing was mangled as a result of the monster storm. The heroes at this shelter prepared for the worst and were able to find enough fosters ahead of time to house and protect their animals during the storm! Fortunately, all animals and workers are safe. Now it’s time to rebuild, and 20% of the purchase price of this mug will go to help to rebuild the shelter. Your favorite dog mom can know that her new favorite coffee mug helped save the lives of future rescue animals in the Florida Keys.

Labrador retriver je društven i nežan pas koji se lako dresira i za kratko vreme može da postane odan i veran čovekov prijatelj. Smatra se jednim od najodgovornijih, najtalentovanijih i najposlušnijih pasa na svetu. Labradori spadaju u inteligentne pse, pa veoma lako uče nove komande i trikove i uvek su spremni za bilo kakav nov zadatak. Osim toga, jako su poslušni i privrženi svom gospodaru. Dobro se slažu i sa drugim psima i sa ostalim kućnim ljubimcima. Sa decom su jako umiljati i tolerantni, pa se preporučuju porodicama koje imaju malu decu. Labrador retriver je jedan od omiljenih porodičnih pasa, mada nije najbolji izbor ako tražite psa čuvara, jer previše voli ljude i nije agresivan. Poverljiv je i prema strancima i veoma retko laje. Pored toga, dokazano je da je labrador izvanredan terapeut koji može da pomogne obolelima, naročito osobama sa invaliditetom. Naime, on može bolesniku da vrati volju za životom, tako što uspostavlja specifičan odnos sa obolelima u sanatorijumima, staračkim domovima i raznim ustanovama za rehabilitaciju. Labrador se često koristi za lečenje dece obolele od dečje paralize, kao i za pomoć hendikepiranim osobama. Osim toga, ovi psi se često koriste u raznim šou programima.
Jack Vanderwyk traces the origins of all Chocolate Labradors listed on the LabradorNet database (some 34,000 Labrador dogs of all shades) to eight original bloodlines. However, the shade was not seen as a distinct colour until the 20th century; before then, according to Vanderwyk, such dogs can be traced but were not registered. A degree of crossbreeding with Flatcoat or Chesapeake Bay retrievers was also documented in the early 20th century, prior to recognition. Chocolate Labradors were also well established in the early 20th century at the kennels of the Earl of Feversham, and Lady Ward of Chiltonfoliat.[27]
The Labrador Retriever was bred to be both a friendly companion and a useful working dog breed. Historically, he earned his keep as a fisherman’s helper: hauling nets, fetching ropes, and retrieving fish from the chilly North Atlantic. Today’s Labrador Retriever is as good-natured and hard working as his ancestors, and he’s America’s most popular breed. These days the Lab works as a retriever for hunters, assistance dog to the handicapped, show competitor, and search and rescue dog, among other canine jobs.
Zanjeer ("Chain", or "Shackles"), a detection dog who detected arms and ammunition used in the 1993 Mumbai (Bombay) serial explosions. During his service, he helped recover 57 country-made bombs, 175 petrol bombs, 11 military grade armaments, 242 grenades and 600 detonators. His biggest contribution to the police force and the city was the detection of 3,329 kg of RDX. He also helped detect 18 Type 56 rifles and five 9mm pistols.
A vigorous dog may or may not be high-energy, but everything he does, he does with vigor: he strains on the leash (until you train him not to), tries to plow through obstacles, and even eats and drinks with great big gulps. These dynamos need lots of training to learn good manners, and may not be the best fit for a home with young kids or someone who's elderly or frail. A low-vigor dog, on the other hand, has a more subdued approach to life.
