Yorkshire Terrier

The Labrador retriever is the most popular breed of dog in the United States and United Kingdom. One only has to be around the Labrador retriever for a short amount of time to see why. They are very intelligent, energetic, helpful and lovable dogs. They are probably one of the most popular dogs to be kept as pets, as well. They love giving and getting attention and respond very well to praise. It takes a lot to make the Lab aggravated or annoyed. Labs love going in the water and splashing around having fun, which many do with members of their family. When they are having a good time playing, they almost have the appearance of smiling on their faces. They are ideal dogs for children, as they have lots of patience and the ability to play for hours.

Although many breeds of animals make good family pets, few make as wonderful companions for children as the Labrador retriever. Because of their gentle and mellow attitude, they are not often used as a watchdog. They are just too lovable to scare off too many strangers. They do, however, bark and combined with their size, it usually keeps strangers away. Despite their gentle nature, they are very loyal towards their family and will stay by the children in their family almost in a protective manner, as though keeping them out of harm's way.

Because of its high intelligence, the Labrador retriever is very easy to train and even more eager to please. Despite their large size, they are usually kept as an indoor dog, where they make themselves right at home as one of the family. They shed regularly throughout the year, but not as heavily as some dogs do. This is an appealing quality for many families wishing to get a Labrador retriever (Lab).

The personality is very easy going and gentle. They don't generally show signs of aggression or undue shyness like some breeds. They also make wonderful pets because they don't exhibit signs of being territorial or suffer from separation anxiety, insecurity or destructiveness. They can be left home while the family is working or at school and will wait patiently for their return, not bothered at all. They love playing with children or adults, and just like the name 'retriever' would suggest, there is nothing they enjoy more than playing catch. You would be surprised at how long they will keep retrieving things - they never seem to get tired.

When they are young, it may seem as though they are hyperactive, but this is normal for Labs, as they don't usually mature until they are at least three years old. They love to eat and have a huge appetite. Their loving nature will make you want to give them food and treats as much as they want. However, the Lab suffers from certain disorders due to obesity so their food consumption needs to be limited. They do accept almost anything that is expected of them and will be a faithful loyal companion and pet for many years.
