Labrador Retriever

The Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular dogs of all time. While they are a fairly large dog at 55 to 80 pounds they are the perfect family dog and great around children.

The temperament of the Labrador Retriever is what makes them the perfect dog for a family. They are loyal, gentle, intelligent and very adaptable to different situations. While they are a large dog breed, you do not have to worry about them around children, they seem to have an instinct to know when to be gentle making them a great companion or playmate for a child.

Labrador Retrievers come in three different colors black, yellow and chocolate. They are a double-coated breed which means they have two layers. You will need to groom them regularly to keep their coat in good condition but since they are a short hair breed it does not take a lot of work to groom them.

They are a very energetic dog so they will need daily exercise. Playing with them in the backyard with the ball may not be enough, especially if you have a small yard. It is recommended you take them on a long walk daily so they are not too rambunctious in the house.

They are very easy to train as long as they feel as if they are part of the family but you do need to be firm with them in your training. They want to please so once you establish that you are in control and they get enough exercise you should not have any problems with training and they will be loyal until the end. When they do not get enough exercise and are left to entertain themselves they can become destructive and you could find your trash knocked over or the cushions on your sofa destroyed. If you need to leave them by themselves for any length of time make sure you have exercised them first so that they will not have this destructive behavior.

As you can see the Labrador Retriever is an all-around great dog for the family, they are easily trained, obedient, loyal and great around children.
