Left alone for too long is sure to tarnish his sacred reputation: A lonely, bored Labrador will dig, chew, and find other destructive ways to release his energy.
Daily 30-minute walks, a romp at the dog park, or games of tag are some ways to help your Labrador burn off its energy. However, a puppy should not be taken on long walks and only play for a few minutes at a time. Labrador Retrievers are known as "workaholics" and overwork themselves. It's up to you to finish the game and training sessions.
