How to Train a Labrador Retriever

June 20, 2013 – 02:54 pm

The Labrador Retriever is a Canadian breed that is thought to have been developed by fishermen in Greenland. The Labrador Retriever is now classified as a sporting dog in the gundog class. This dog makes a great family pet, a great guide dog for the blind, a great drug search dog, and a great sporting dog.

The Labrador Retriever comes in three color variations, chocolate, black, and yellow. The current trend is for the Chocolate Lab, however, the Black and Yellow Labs are also popular. The males of this breed are slightly larger than the females. They stand between 22.5 and 24.5 inches tall and weigh between 60 and 75 pounds, and the females stand between 21.5 and 23.5 inches tall and weigh between 55 and 70 pounds.

Many claim that you must wait several years before the Labrador ‘calms down’ and becomes a normal member of the family. With proper training, however, you can have your Lab be a well mannered dog in no time.

Labrador Retrievers are perfect family dogs. Although originally bred for hunting, they are good natured and don’t mind being bossed around. Therefore, they are well-suited for obedience training.

Labrador Retrievers seem to be very loyal and arguably, the smartest breed among canines. Labs are medium-sized dogs that are certainly strong enough to create chaos if untrained. They are extremely playful and oftentimes, too playful for your own comfort.

It is imperative to train your Labrador Retriever to have a pleasant relationship with the canine companion. Here are key tips to consider in training your Lab.

She's a labrador retriever then?

That's not exactly rare. She's technically a "yellow" labrador retriever though some refer to them as "vanilla"
From the AKC standard: Yellow--Yellows may range in color from fox-red to light cream, with variations in shading on the ears, back, and underparts of the dog.
So light cream.
I'm sure she's beautiful though :-)
