Labrador Retriever Info & Labrador Retriever Breeders

The Labrador is a gun dog - one of several kinds of retriever. Labradors are described as kind, pleasant, well-behaved and easy and gentle with children, the elderly, and other animals.  They are playful and athletic and the most popular breed of dog by registered ownership in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States (since 1991).   Labradors are frequently trained to aid blind and autistic people, act as therapy dogs, and perform screening and detection work for law enforcement and other official agencies.  Labradors are ranked # 7 in Stanley Coren's The Intelligence of Dogs.

 

Labradors' have an excellent sense of smell and can follow almost any scent to its origin.  For this reason they are often used by military and police as detection dogs. Labradors instinctively enjoy holding objects and even hands or arms in their mouths, which they can do with great gentleness (a Labrador can carry an egg in its mouth without breaking it). They are known to have a very soft feel to the mouth, as a result of being bred to retrieve game such as waterfowl. They are prone to chewing objects (though they can be trained to abandon this behavior).

 

Although they will sometimes bark at noise, Labradors are usually not noisy or territorial. They are often trusting with strangers and therefore are not the breed of choice for a guard dog.  They are fun-loving and can be boisterousness which  may require training and firm handling at times.

 

Labradors have a well-known reputation for appetite, and some individuals may be highly indiscriminate, eating digestible and non-food objects alike. They are persistent and persuasive in requesting food. For this reason, food intake must be monitored to avoid obesity and health problems.
