Labradors are an incredibly popular breed. Many dog books or dog breed websites state that they are the perfect family dog and are always friendly to strangers or other dogs. One site even said they are 100% trustworthy around cats or small pets, even if they haven't been brought up with them. Labs are probably the breed of dog I most often bump into on dog walks. They tend to be badly trained ( it seems people often think Labs are guaranteed to be 'nice' and therefore don't need obedience… Read Full Review

Beebe is a wonderful Boxer Lab mix rescued from the aspsc. She was 5 weeks old when I viewed her. I finally decided to take her home after observing her strengths and territorial attributes towards the other puppies in the pin with her. Now that I’ve had her for more than 6 years, she has more than proved her worth. She’s protective, gentle and very playful. Her knowledge level exceeds most of the so called intelligent animals, and she talks, or should I say respond when spoken to as well… Read Full Review

Bruce is our 21 week old Black Labrador! We got him when he was 8 weeks! He is big, boisterous and very naughty! He loves to chase the cats and has the kitchen bin over at least 3 times a day! He chews anything and everything! Now he is getting bigger he steals food off the kitchen work tops! Oh I nearly forgot he loves to eat horse poo! Oh and twice he has been sick and brought up some kind of rodent! Cats must have killed it and he ate them!
But we adore Bruce and wouldn't swap him for any… Read Full Review

unfortunately, i have just lost our lab, she was 12 years and she had an anterior cruciate ligament operation when she was 10 years, but apart from that she was healthy, be warned about an incredible appetite, we did well to keep ours at a reasonable 32kgs considering she would eat till she was sick if you let them, or as we found out, leave a box of thorntons continental on the kitchen worktop. labs do grow into the perfect pet, giving loyalty, affection and obediance and also differing from… Read Full Review

I got my yellow Labrador Retriever when he was 3 months. He was crate trained and easy going. He's 10 months now and I really love him. He's a challenge though, I run with him and he wants to go to other people, which I don't like. He chews everything I give him up, including his bed. He does shed a lot and we could not house break him. He loves my running, although he poops out after a few miles, so I will have to get another breed to run my longer runs with! He needs a buddy anyway… Read Full Review

Carbon - thats my 1 year old is a great dog. The way he comes to us wagging his tail when we reach home at the end of the day is worth everything on Earth. He is caring and good at understanding our emotions. He would never bother us when he rightly senses our preoccupation… Read Full Review

We have a 4 month yellow lab and she is great. She's really friendly and was so easy to house train. She has tons of energy and keeps us all very active from walking and playing. We took her to the lake and she LOVED it, spent all day swimming and playing fetch in the water. I could not recommend a better choice especially if you have a family… Read Full Review

We got a yellow lab when I was about 11 years old and she lived for 12 years with nary a problem (medical or otherwise). Everyone in my neighbourhood loved her, she was so good with people, and was (honestly)) the smartest dog I've ever met. I can not recommend this breed highly enough!
Sadly, because she was SUCH an amazing dog, I don't know how my future pets will be able to live up to her! :D… Read Full Review

A good Labrador is hard to better! They are loving, affectionate and eager to please you. All they want is company and cuddles. Labs love everyone. My black Lab, Buddy is five, and is definitely one of my best friends. Labradors are lovely. There is a reason why they are the most popular breed, and it's because they make great companions, excellent family pets, and are a friendly, easy going kind. They do want companionship, and a certain amount of exercise, but if you have the time to give to… Read Full Review

I have two black Labrador Retrievers: Ben and Holly. Ben is an old man now at 13 years old. Holly is his young pal and she's coming up for 3 years old.
We found Ben to be a handful when he was younger. He loved to explore - sometimes to his folly. He pulled a lot on his lead. He twice escaped from the garden [after taking a running jump over the fence] and spent a few happy hours in the custody of her majesty's finest. He finally got his brains at around 5 years old! His intelligent eyes hides… Read Full Review

Why would you even think about buying a different breed?
I don't think that a labrador would bite your child, they don't even bark much.
Buster (I didn't name him) is nothing short of fantastic. He cost us 350 quid as a pup from breeders who didn't want him because he has a wonky set of teeth - not that this stops him eating or chewing things.
He follows me around in the hope that I will drop some morsel of food. He sleeps at my feet. When I'm sat watching TV, he lies on my feet to ensure that… Read Full Review

I brought Bonnie, my Labrador Retriever, over 12 months ago now and she is my baby! She is house trained, a fab companion and loves a good walk. I take her out for at least 1.5 hours to 2 hours every day to allow her to let off steam. Labs get on well with other dogs and even cats, this is one of the reasons I chose a lab. She does scrounge for food a lot but never goes in the bin!
I would recommend a Lab to anyone, as they are the best dog in the world… Read Full Review

As a family after our break in we decided to buy another dog the wife wanted something loyal and that had a good temperament as we have a young toddler so we had to be careful about which breed to buy.
After asking many questions regarding the aforementioned and looking at many different breeds we went to see some Labrador puppies my sons face lit up when this little black lab. would not leave his side my wife and i thought this was hilarious and decided there and then to buy the little chap… Read Full Review

I have a 8 month old black lab and she is a wonderful family pet. There is not much to say against these great dogs and I would call them the perfect family pet. They will play with anyone, learn to fetch within days, and are a joy to play with in a pond of stream. These dogs love the water and ours learned to leap after sticks when they were thrown into the pond. the only negative side to owning a lab is their tendency towards hip displaysia in their later years. Buy a lab only from a… Read Full Review

The Labrador Retriever is one of the best breeds anyone could ever even dream of having. They are loyal, affectionate, and can be a bit silly at times. But I think that's one of the things that I think makes a lab a lab. Especially the way they sit and hop up in the chair when they feel as if they are not getting enough attention. Labs are #1 baby! Yeah!… Read Full Review

My Labrador retriever, Casey is almost 6 years old and he is very sweet, and good with my 2 year old sister. Although he was very hyper when he was younger, and I've heard that as a trait of labs, until he was almost 3, he is a good family dog. Casey isn't very loyal at all, if there was someone with food outside he'd just run, even if they were standing in the middle of the busy street...and we're not able to take him off his leash or else he will run away. That might not be a problem on his… Read Full Review
