14 Interesting Facts About Labradors

The Labrador is one of the most popular dog breeds in the world. It has also been widely used in the USA over the past 15 years. He is a real all-around talent and is used, among other things, as a hunting dog, rescue dog, drug and explosives detection dog, and as a guide dog.

In addition, he has proven himself thousands of times over as a loyal, always friendly family dog with strong nerves. Good-natured with children, he loves to play and romp and usually gets along well with other dogs as well. Labradors love water. No opportunity for a small bath goes unused. They are intelligent, easy to train, and love to be cuddled. If you can say anything about the Labrador, then it is his passion for hunting that makes him run away during a walk.

#1 Labrador Retrievers love, love, love to eat and will become overweight very quickly if overfed.

Limit treats, give your Lab enough exercise, and give regular, measured meals instead of constantly providing food. Also, be warned that the Lab's great appetite doesn't stop at eating people, nor does it stop at inedible objects. Labradors will eat trash, clear out kitchen counters, and can make a whole meal out of even chewed things like children's toys.

#2 Labrador Retrievers were bred for physically demanding tasks, so they also possess the high energy that comes with being a working breed.

They need at least 30 to 60 minutes of exercise every day. Without it, they vent their excess energy in destructive ways, such as barking and chewing.

#3 Labs have such a good reputation that many people feel like they don’t need to worry about their training.

However, Labs are large, high-energy animals and, like all dogs, need to be taught good dog manners. So sign up for puppy and dog school as soon as you bring your Lab home.
