The Labrador Retriever

The good-natured, loving and loyal Labrador Retriever makes a wonderful companion dog. Labradors thrive on human companionship.  These friendly, outgoing dogs generally enjoy company of children.  Labradors are rarely aggressive towards other dogs.  Most Labradors are eager students and have a strong desire to please their owners.  

Labrador Retrievers are intelligent, hardy dogs.  Due to their large size, muscular built, and playful nature, Labradors require plenty of exercise.   Traditionally, these dogs have been bred for hunting and retrieving.  The energetic and versatile Labradors are easily trained for hunting, obedience, agility, and as therapy and guide dogs.
