How to Care for a Labrador Retriever

  1. Feed them appropriately. Labrador Retrievers have huge appetites. Don't find it strange if he or she is always hungry. Depending on the dog, you will most likely have to feed the dog one to two times a day. However, it's a good idea to ask your vet about when you should feed him or her, or how often you should feed them treats.
    • To avoid obesity, walk him or her regularly; at least once a day for 30 min. Labrador Retrievers are the type of dog that love to socialize so if there is a park nearby it may be a good idea to get him or her familiar with the area. But especially if the dog is new to your family, keep him or her on a leash at all times in public, as they are curious to the world around them.
    • Don't worry too much if they are constantly hungry. You may want to feed him or her a treat, and then restrict on the food for the rest of the day. But as mentioned in the previous tip, you should ask your vet about what serving sizes and times of the day you should feed your dog.


  2. Give tons of love! Labrador Retrievers are very loving dogs. But they are also territorial. It's natural for them to bark at anything on the street or sidewalk. But when introduced properly, they aren't so ferocious. Especially to people they're used to. Make sure that you spend some time at home training him or her to the outside world and what to expect. You may just need to introduce them to a life a socializing with both your and their friends.
    • Labrador Retrievers are amazing with children. However, if you have younger children, you will have to keep tabs on what they're doing with the dog at all times. Especially with toddlers, they like to get their paws on anything that they can. So make sure the little guy or girl isn't grabbing at the dog, or this may result in snapping at the little one. In new dogs, you must be very cautious about how close you let your younger children get to them until they are friendly with one another. They love playing with anyone that can give them the time of day to care for them. You'll find that they absolutely love to cuddle, and are great guardian dogs. But you have to remember that you're the one guiding the relationship, and always treat them how you would want to be treated. Just think about putting yourself in their paws, (shoes didn't work for this one).
  3. Make sure to play with them! Petting, playing, and spending time with people, and you! If there's anything Labrador retrievers love more than food, it's getting to see new sights everyday. But if he or she seems abnormal, sort of sad and lazy, pet him or her more than normal, play with him or her more, and maybe take him or her for a walk. They love getting to interact with the world that isn't so familiar with them. You'll see a significant difference in your Lab's attitude! Remember- Labrador's are curious dogs!
    • For a happier dog, let them sniff things as you walk past. Even when you come back from somewhere, let them sniff you or what your brought back.
  4. Don't neglect him or her if he wants to cuddle up next to your feet on Family Movie Night. All dogs love to cuddle. They were raised in packs, so they were raised to cuddle. If you can, let him or her cuddle up with you on the couch.
  5. Supply him or her with plenty of toys. Labs love to express themselves with a toy. Typically, their favorite toy is a tennis ball.
  6. Always provide plenty of clean, fresh water at all times. Labs get very thirsty after exercise and need to be replenished.


  • As your dog ages, you may see such health issues as hip dysplasia, epilepsy or seizures. They can also experience eye problems. If any of these are happening to your dog, immediately contact your vet and talk about possible treatment solution or medication. An elderly dog with any such conditions should see a vet about once a month or once every two months, or as advised by your vet. Labs are a great dog as long as they are kept healthy.
  • Make sure that you also have appropriate space in your house because you obviously don't want to leave a puppy outside by itself.
  • *When you are caring for puppies, make sure that they have the appropriate amount of space to run around and do their "business."

Talking Dog For Sale

A guy is driving around Tennessee and he sees a sign in front of a house:
"Talking Dog For Sale ." He rings the bell and the owner tells him the dog is in
the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a Labrador retriever
sitting there.
"You talk?" he asks.
"Yep," the Lab replies.
"So, what's your story?"
The Lab looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA about my gift, and in no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies
and world leaders,because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping
