Labrador Retriever

I was searching for months for a breeder for an English Labrador near where I live. I was having trouble finding one where the timing of the litter would work out, or was within a reasonable price range. It was practically a full time job. Then I discovered puppy spot! I found the exact puppy I was looking for, and the person who I was in contact with provided all the necessary information, including photos of the parents.

Labrador Retriever Characteristics

Labrador Retrievers have been America's most popular dog breed for many years. They are well-known for being friendly with everyone they meet, human and dog alike. In addition to being highly intelligent, Labs have high energy levels and are extremely active. Even so, they are highly trainable and eager to please their owners, which makes them wonderful companions.

Fast Facts

  • Energy High
  • Size Large
  • Trainability Accommodating

Labrador Retrievers are a loving and intelligent dog breed. They are famous for being devoted to their owners and love showing their affection and receiving it in return.

Labs get along well with all family members, which is why they’re very popular with families. They’re also quite intelligent, which makes them fairly easy to train.

A Labrador’s color can vary from chocolate to black to yellow or even white. Their coats are sleek and fairly easy to care for, but they are heavy shedders, so you’ll need to brush them regularly. They have wide foreheads and sweet, affectionate eyes – but watch out for their strong tails that are often wagging!

Their topcoat is thick and short, and their undercoat is soft and helps protect against cold temperatures and water.

Labs have the high energy levels you would expect from a working dog breed. They require at least 30 to 60 minutes of daily exercise. Also, Labs love to eat! You have to be careful not to overfeed them as they will eat until they are overweight.

While most Labs spend their days soaking up the attention of their owners, they can still make excellent work dogs. They are particularly great for search and rescue, as well as hunting.

Labrador Retrievers are a large, sturdy breed and can weigh anywhere from 55 to 80 pounds. The typical lifespan for a Labrador Retriever is 10 to 12 years.
