A LABRADOR IN THE FAMILY
Any family can enjoy the endearing character of a Labrador. Many people think that being a large dog they need a large house with a garden so that the dog can have a good quality of life, but it does not have to be this way.
The Labrador retriever loves to run and play, it is something that he loves, but it does not matter how big the house is because he will learn that whenever he is at home he must remain calm. It will be during walks taking him to the park when he can play, for example, ball or with other dogs. Obviously, if we have a garden we can give it a game without going outside, but that should not replace the walk that is essential for any dog. But we insist that the size of the house is not important, because inside it you will want to rest and for that a comfortable corner to rest is enough.

THE LABRADOR OUTSIDE THE HOUSE

As a rule, a Labrador requires 3 daily walks, although when he is more adult, some Labradors are enough with 2 walks. This is an important time to bond with him, allow him to explore new places and smells, to release energy, and to socialize with other dogs, people, and noises.

The Labrador is a great dog for those who have an active life, because he will always be happy to accompany his family wherever he goes and will know how to do it to enjoy the moment.

It is a dog that never seems to tire, it will always be prepared to go for the ball, play with the children, take a long trail up the mountain, bathe in the sea or accompany its owner to run. Likewise, he loves to share quiet moments with his family accompanying them while they watch television, study or nap. For the Labrador Retriever the most important thing is always the company of his family.

THE LABRADOR'S NEEDS
The labrador is a very intelligent dog and his capacity to be trained is enormous since he is always looking to please. With very few repetitions, you can quickly learn what to expect from him, and as he learns, his ability to understand new commands is further accelerated. For this reason, one of the needs of the Labrador Retriever is training to develop its intellectual capacities and keep its hard-working mind balanced. Teach him tricks, challenge him to get his food, propose new situations and games ... He will always be happy to show that he can do anything.

Regarding veterinary health, it is important to pay attention to his bones, since being a fast growing dog we must ensure that we provide him with a good diet during his development, be careful that the dog does not make too sudden movements and support nutrition with a veterinary chondroprotector that strengthens the joints.

And at the hairdressing level, the care is very simple. You should brush your hair to prevent it from falling out and take regular baths to hydrate your skin. He makes the move twice a year, and at that time it is ideal to go to the hairdresser to have a skinning done to avoid the discomfort of hair loss and relieve the heat of the dog.

Labrador retrievers are sturdy and compact dogs. Its appearance is practically square, with a strong body and robust legs. The maximum height for a male is 60 cm, which places them in the category of medium-sized dogs, although due to their robust constitution they appear much larger. Weight ranges from 38 kg in a large male to 25 kg in a smaller female. Dogs bred for the field line are usually taller and somewhat leaner in build.

Labradors are easily recognized by their broad heads, drooping ears, and large, expressive eyes. Two characteristics of the labrador are its double layer of thick but rather short hair, very resistant to water, and the well-known "otter tail". The tail is thick and robust and comes out of the almost straight top line. The feet are described as having an "interdigital membrane" as they have a longer skin between the toes that helps them swim. Color can range from black through chocolate to red / yellow and even almost white.

The Labrador Retriever is a breed that matures at a moderately fast rate, reaching its adult height between six and twelve months of age, although it can continue to gain weight until two years of life. Many reach 12 or 14 years of age.

Personality
Labrador Retrievers are generally great family dogs as long as you keep in mind that they need to exercise and receive training. They are dogs bred for work and they work hard, and they love being assigned tasks, especially rescue.

Labradors often get along well with other dogs, other pets, and children, provided the training has lessened their natural exuberance. They are strong dogs and need some obedience training from a very young age to prevent them from dragging their owners down the street when they feel like it.

Given their energetic nature, those left alone or not exercising enough can adopt destructive behaviors by biting, digging, and barking excessively.

Many Labradors are especially energetic dogs, while others are "flat" completely from a very young age. Nibbling can be a problem, because they have an oral fixation as a result of their strong rescue instinct, so it is helpful to have toys for biting, training and exercise.

Coexistence
Obviously, Labradors have multiple adorable traits that make them very popular. They are smart and easy enough to train, in part because of their desire to work with people. They are good eaters and can be overweight if they don't exercise and their food portions aren't adjusted as needed. Labradors are excellent family dogs because they love company, so they feel sad when they are in kennels or remote areas.

Labradors tend to be protective of their families and homes, although they also often welcome visitors. They can also end up being teethers and destroyers if they don't get the right toys and guidance. Labradors can nibble on people, and the solution is often just to give them a toy that they can take with them to keep their mouths full. They are very strong dogs and an early training is necessary to get a dog that walks pleasantly on a leash.

The wonderful double coat of fur that keeps the Labrador warm when working in icy waters also makes this breed the queen of molts. Normally a quick cleaning per week is sufficient, but in the molting season a daily cleaning is necessary. The amount of exercise they need varies according to their utility: Field dogs can run all day, while show dogs only need moderate exercise.

History
At the beginning of the 19th century, some "multi-function" dogs used in North America (mainly in Canada) by hunters were sent to England. Many of these water dogs were of the Newfoundland type, but the smaller ones used to be designated as St. John's dogs. In England, the breed developed and improved (probably with contributions from smooth-haired retrievers) to become the breed we recognize today.

As specified by name (retriever means ‘retriever’ or ‘rescuer’), Labrador retrievers were raised and selected for their remarkable rescue capabilities, especially in the water. They have worked as fellow duck hunters in all kinds of conditions and climates. His intelligence and desire to work as a companion to man has earned him many other tasks. Today, Labradors excel as support dogs and guide dogs, family pets, trail dogs for the military, customs and special body dogs for arson, search and rescue dogs, as well as companions for hunting and working dogs. .


The good character of this breed has catapulted it to number one on the American popularity charts, a position it claims to retain. Despite their fame as indoor pets, they are also found outside of homes. It must always be remembered that Labradors are water dogs by nature, and from a very young age puppies show a strong desire to carry things and a strong attraction for water, even in puddles.
