Labrador Retriever Breed Profile 2016

The Labrador Retriever, more commonly known as "Labradors" are the most common breed of dog in the United States. Labradors are large dogs, normally around fifty to seventy five pounds.

Labradors come in three colors - black (Black Labradors), brown (Chocolate Labradors), and yellow (Yellow Labradors). Yellow Labradors can vary from nearly white to fox red, but the other two colors are pretty much all the same.

Labradors are excellent swimmers, and most greatly enjoy the water, even in the winter. For this reason, Labradors make great duck hunting or fishing dogs. A labs coat is relatively resistant to water, which helps it in water activities.

Labradors are very friendly, loving dogs, and generally love being around people and children, making them a great family dog. Being large, active dogs, Labrador retrievers need plenty of exercise and activity.

Labradors are generally easy to train and very responsive. Labradors are rarely overly aggressive (though they will normally bark at intrusions), hyper, destructive, or overly territorial. They are great to get along with.

Labradors do like chewing on things, so they often must be trained to chew on the correct things and not your furniture.

Labradors, as mentioned before, love people. Most Labradors cant get enough human attention. Labradors especially love retrieving, whether it be a ball, stick, or whatever. Most will continue bringing back a ball as long as you will throw it for them.

Labradors generally live about twelve to thirteen years, and are not overly prone to many health problems. Labradors do have some susceptibility to hip dysplasia, ear infections, or knee problems. Probably the most common problem is gaining too much weight, though. Labradors love to eat, and their food intake must be controlled carefully.

Overall, Labradors are an excellently well rounded, even tempered dog. Really, they are great for anyone, as long as you can give them enough exercise.
