When it is time to start considering getting a new dog for your home, you want to go over all of your options and really think about what qualities are important to you. If you want a dog that is loyal, dedicated, smart and gentle, then the Black Labrador may be the perfect choice for you and your family. They are quickly becoming one of the more popular breeds to own because they are so great in a house environment and do very well with people.
Yellow Labradors are the ideal family pet and they are also very popular because they are dependable, reliable, loving, friendly and excellent to have for children around whom they are docile and gentle. You must already have formed an impression about this Labrador type from the way that they are shown in movies; often heroic, and certainly very friendly and intelligent. However, they are not always like that in real life and it would indeed be wrong to consider that every Yellow Labrador will turn out to be like they are shown in movies and television shows.
You need to ask your prospective Labrador Retriever breeder a lot more questions other than how much they cost. Because Labs are the most popular breed in North America, there are (sadly) many people who breed Labs for quantity rather than quality. With a pre-written list of questions for your Labrador breeder, you can help avoid those breeders that shouldn't be within a mile of a puppy.
Just because they have short hair doesn't mean that Labrador Retrievers don't have to be groomed on a regular basis, because they do. Daily grooming sessions should include removing the dead hair from the dog's coat with a short haired rake, an inspection of the dog's ears to make sure they aren't infected, a quick glance at the dog's feet to make sure that the pads aren't cut and a brush with a firm bristle brush.
Nothing can melt your heart more than a Labrador puppy. That is why it's no wonder that Labradors for sale are the most sought after in any community. Labradors are very sweet, companionable, and loving. The breed itself is known for its intelligence and being even tempered. It is a dog that is free from aggression and insecurities.
Law enforcement and natural disaster response teams are often largely dependent upon the help of rescue dogs (or search-and-rescue dogs) to find trapped or lost human beings, or sometimes, in the worst cases, corpses. The most common breeds favored for this kind of work are Burmese mountain dogs, Saint Bernards and, last but certainly not least, Labrador Retrievers. The successful training of a Labrador rescue dog in particular is dependent on several factors, including the dedication of the handler, and the disposition of the dog.
