Focus on The Breed: Labrador Retrievers

The most popular dog breed in the United States and the developed world, Labrador retrievers, or labs, can best be described as the Swiss army knife of dog breeds- they seem to have something for everyone. They are considered to be one of the smartest and most easily trainable dog breeds and are thus desired as working dogs and service dogs. Some of the common traits of the breed include:

  • They are ideal for families, including kids, and get along well with strangers and other dogs.
  • They are high energy and may become destructive if they are not given sufficient stimulation.
  • They are generally healthy, but like all large breeds, they can suffer from hip, back, and knee problems. They are also prone to obesity when not exercised regularly.
