Labrador Retriever Information

Labrador Retriever BreedOh the Labrador Retriever, the most popular dog breed in the world! Energetic, friendly and and loving, the Labrador makes the ultimate family dog. They’re also incredibly athletic with keen hunting abilities. The breed is often used for guide dogs or search-and-rescue teams due to their obedient nature and desire to please.

Available in three colors – yellow, black and brown – the Labrador actually did not hail from Labrador, Canada, but from the neighboring Newfoundland. With its high energy, obedience training and lots of exercise are a must. A tired Lab is a well behaved Lab!
