One of the most popular dog breeds today, the Labrador Retriever is the favorite choice of many families. Known for its gentle, intelligent, and kind temperament, this breed is very famous among dog afficionados. According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), Labrador Retrievers have taken over Golden Retrievers as the most famous species among dog breeds.
This versatile pet was originally used for hunting and retrieving purposes, but over a period of time have been groomed to be the best companion dog that any family can ever hope for. There are three general colors to choose from – yellow, black and chocolate. Labrador Retrievers are also highly popular as guide dogs for the blind, and as key participants in search-and-rescue operations by armed forces and law enforcement agencies.
Labrador Retrievers, with the affectionate nickname of “Labs,” is one of the most popular breeds throughout the United States. Originally from Newfoundland, the breed was initially used to haul fishermans’ nets to shore. Later specimens were brought to England in the 1800s by ships coming from Labrador, the place where the breed’s outstanding retrieving instincts were honed and developed. Breeding experiments with spaniels and other retriever breeds were then conducted to perfect the gene that is known today as that of the Labrador Retriever.
The Labrador Retriever is considered to be a great family companion with its sweet, affectionate, and patient disposition. Just like kids, Labrador retriever puppies have a natural instinct to play and be constantly active. With a temperament that is reliable and friendly, they get along very well both with children and other dogs. Perfect as family dogs, they have an innate ability to adapt to the demands of an active household. Labradors are some of the world’s best sniffers and make great hunting companions. They love a job or a task that keeps them mentally and physically active. Apart from their love of hunting with their masters, most of them love water as well and benefit from a beautiful, water-resistant coat. Since they are predisposed to becoming a bit lazy in the absence of physical work, it is recommended that you provide a dedicated regimen of exercise and physical activity for growing Labrador Retriever puppies to keep them physically fit.
Labrador Retrievers are strong, medium-sized dogs with an athletic, well-balanced appearance. Known as a short-coupled breed, this dog’s body length is equivalent to or just longer than its height. Its overall physique features a strong back, leveled top line, and a wide, strong loin which characterizes flexibility. They have a comparatively long neck that is muscular and rises in an arch from the shoulders assisting them with jumps and a variety of physical endeavors.
Labrador retrievers have an underbelly which is almost straight, well-muscled, proportional, and sturdy. They have shoulders that are well laid-back and form a 90-degree angle with the upper arm which facilitates dexterity of motion. When viewed from the front, the Labrador Retriever’s front legs are straight and well-boned. The elbows of this breed are located directly under the withers. Their compact feet are strong and feature a set of arched toes and copious pads. The tail of the Labrador Retriever is thick at its base, and it gradually tapers toward its tip which is of medium length and it extends no longer than to the hock. The Labrador Retriever tail is uniquely distinctive and appears similar to that of an otter.
The skull of the Labrador Retriever is quite broad giving it a placid appearance. A wedge-shaped head is clean-cut and the skull’s bony structure is well-chiseled beneath the eyes. With a dominant muzzle and wide nose with prominent nostrils, a pair of powerful jaws support strong teeth which usually close in a scissors style. The eyes are medium-sized, set far apart, and are brown or hazel in color. The breed’s ears are set relatively far back, somewhat low on the skull, and hang comparatively close to the dog’s head.
With proper grooming and care, this dog’s top coat which is short-haired, straight, and very dense retains a beautiful shine. Labrador Retrievers also have a soft, water-resistant, protective undercoat which requires a regimen of proper diet and adequate care. Many also have a distinctive white patch on the chest, which enhances their appearance.
Among the different types of Labradors, the most notable are the English Labs and the American Labs. English Labrador Retrievers are described as very calm, which can make them an especially good choice for families. The American Labrador breed which is generally taller and leaner qualify as perfect companions on hunting expeditions.
Size and Proportion
Female Labradors vary between 21- 24 inches in height, while the males may get as tall as 24-1/2 inches. The weight of the breed varies between 55 and 100 pounds. Usually this dog may be inclined to enjoy generous portions of food as a result of a voracious appetite. This means you as owner must supervise their caloric intake to prevent noticeable weight gain in more sedentary dogs.
In common with other large dog breeds, the Labradors are prone to problems with hip and elbow dysplasia. Other health concerns include eye problems like PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy), or blindness. EIC (exercise induced collapse) and TVD (Tricuspid valve dysplasia) are other conditions which are common in the breed for which they should be checked. The longevity of this breed is 10 to 12 years. The Labrador’s average litter size is 8 puppies and these young ones will require responsible care in their growing years.
Naturally curious and ready for an adventure, they enjoy freely running in an open field, searching for toys and avidly following every possible scent they detect. If regular exercise is not encouraged, these dogs tend to bloat. This is a condition that results when gases, fluids, and/or solids build up in the stomach, cannot be eliminated, and may be fatal. A dog with bloat must be rushed to the vet as quickly as possible.
In some cases, Labradors are prone to bouts of epilepsy, as well as Anterior Cruciate Ligament Rupture of the knee. Ear infections can also occur due to bacterial build-up in the folds of the ear, something which can be prevented with regular cleaning.
Maintenance and Care
Labrador Retriever puppies must receive great care and proper attention in their growing years. This is the time when they develop lifelong habits and are more receptive to training for their specific roles. Naturally inquisitive, these puppies tend to pursue everything they encounter with great interest. Labrador puppies are very quick to learn, but this learning calls for even doses of praise and control. Adult Labrador dogs grow to be very strong and resilient, but during the growing years, Labrador puppies need to be leash-trained carefully. An indoor kennel or crate is a very good training mechanism for a growing puppy. Consult with your puppy’s breeder on best practices for early training.
The growing puppy’s hair needs to be brushed regularly with a firm bristle brush, with extra attention given to the dog’s undercoat. This double-coated breed sheds seasonally, and regular grooming is a must. They should be bathed or dry shampooed only as necessary.
You will find that your new Labrador adores all water-sports, perhaps more than any other breed. If you can, indulge your Labrador Retriever’s love of water as often as possible, and you will have a very grateful and happy dog indeed!
The Labrador Retriever has consistently held the top spot in breed popularity in the United States for the past 24 years! On a worldwide scale, studies done during the past decade by the World Canine Organization (aka Fédération Cynologique Internationale) have ranked this dog as the top dog in all 84 major countries it represents as well. And for good reason! A highly accomplished breed, the Labrador Retriever excels in a number of important skills which serve the hunting and service sectors of our culture. In addition to being an outstanding waterfowl retriever and superlative upland game gun dog on the hunt; an intelligent partner in police and military search-and-rescue activities; as well as a compassionate servant to people with disabilities or other physical and emotional needs; this dog offers families and children a special kind of affectionate, reliable and devoted companionship for a valuable lifelong friendship. Labs are typically black, yellow and chocolate, black being most predominant in the majority of registries. Generally more lithe if its lifestyle is governed by field trials, the Lab (like many dogs...as well as people!) can be prone to weight gain if not monitored carefully for overeating! And, as with all dogs given proper training and socialization, the Lab will exude a patient, quiet, obedient and well-disciplined demeanor in whatever activity it is engaged, regardless of the level of difficulty or physical demands involved. With the ability to intuitively sense the need for its assistance, the Labrador Retriever has been known to perform heroic feats of rescue totally independent of any human interaction
These are some of the qualities that Idaho’s Sawtooth Retrievers refine in their breeding and training program dedicated to started and finished gun dogs. Concentrating on only their own very special dogs, their breeding initiative is highly selective, usually matching a Male Field Champion and a Female Master Hunter. This produces a dog tough enough to withstand the elements and run in high-level competition if you so desire, but stable and level-headed enough to make a great hunting companion. A prime example is Smoke, the exquisite 2-year-old male Finished Gun dog pictured above who is available to a new home. This dog is so loved and admired that candidates must prove outstanding qualifications within a required 3-day program to learn care, proper setting and handling of this exceptional Lab.

Labrador Retrievers require some kind of yard for exercise. Urban apartments will work only on the condition that you can walk or otherwise exercise your dog on a regular basis. Suburban homes or even rural areas are usually the best in terms of space in order to keep your lab healthy. Rural areas with readily-accessible bodies of water (rivers, lakes, beaches or even ponds) are the best of all.
