Good with kids
Need lots of attention/stimulation
Chocolate Labradors are wonderful, beautiful dogs. Like retrievers they are easy to train and love to retrieve items. They can be trained to swim and they love the water. They act as good watchdogs, but not guard dogs. They are very active dogs, and if they do not get enough exercise and stimulation then they will be very hyper and can get destructive. They also like to dig, so if you want to keep yours in the garden, don't get too fussy about your flower beds. On the other hand, they are very good-natured and love children and get on well with other dogs. They are a good dog for a family that likes to spend time outdoors with their animal and is willing to take it on long walks and to the beach, etc.
