Training A Lab Puppy
The Labrador retriever is a simple dog. He asks very few questions and has much love to share around. He doesn’t have the high and often complicated intelligence of other working dog breeds. If, however, any dog breed had the capability for emotional intelligence the Labrador would be it.
The Labrador is a gun dog who was originally bred to retrieve injured or dead birds after they have been shot. His specific employment is to carry the quarry in his soft mouth and often walk through wet and rugged conditions. The Labrador is still used regularly in this circumstance as well as being a popular and common family pet.
