Got a male lab pup 40 yrs ago, he waited by the door to go outside and potty and just stared at Labrador (2) - Blood (Vinyl) if I was slow, a genius dog,natural duck and bird dog, he would carry fishing poles and small tackle boxes. The best dog ever!!! Named Cole, a twist of words for black as coal:.
Hi this is Ben fistner! I have a chocolate lab who keeps jumping on visitors do you guys have any idea how to stop him form jumping we tried turning away from him we tried pushing him down when he jumps up!
He is 9 years old have any ideas? Please reply. I have had 4 labrador puppies and Labrador (2) - Blood (Vinyl) told this tactic by the breeder in Pembrokeshire UK with my first chocolate lab in It was useful advice! Good luck!
My two labs are quickly calmed when I give my visitor a treat for each. Labs are great dogs! One thing to remember is that raising lab pups is kind of like raising young boys.
They both will go through a phase where their mission in life is to destroy your stuff. Just wanted to say thank you for this site. We have a 13 week old golden retriever puppy and I have picked up fantastic advice here about biting, destruction, and over-exuberance that seems to be part and parcel of raising a young pup.
A few days in and we are already seeing some behavioural changes — in Mabel and in ourselves — and I certainly feel calmer and not quite so desperate I have had furniture and my clothes shredded and she has drawn blood.
It is getting easier to calm her down. Both her parents were beautiful, calm dogs so sure that she will be too. Well done and thanks. Hello, we have an 11 week old black lab. She refuses to be potty trained even though we follow this site for training. She hates walks, and being on the leash or being outside.
She will just sit and not move on the leash at all. She will even get taken out for minute walks and then immediately come inside and go to the bathroom. She will bark non stop if left in the crate. Labradors first became popular as pets around the time that the first dog shows were springing up and exhibiting dogs was becoming a fashionable hobby. Gradually the two lines Labrador (2) - Blood (Vinyl) Labrador — those bred for a role as gun dogs, and those bred for a role as show dogs — began to diverge.
As the years passed the working type Labrador and show type Labrador became more different from one another. And breeding between the two types became less common. Capable of winning in the show ring and in the field. But as Field Trial competitions became more demanding, field bred labs became more specialised, faster, and more focused. Some not all lost their classic Labrador looks.
While show bred Labs became a little more exaggerated, chunkier, heavier, and shorter in the leg. It was these heavier dogs that became more popular as pets and show breeders who exceeded the field type breeders in number Labrador (2) - Blood (Vinyl) took over the role of providing the gene pool for the majority of pet Labradors.
In the USA the two types of Labrador also acquired some new names — English for the show type and American for the pet type. These names have nothing to do with location and everything to do with role. And the same applies to the terms English and show or bench type Lab.
Whichever country you happen to be in. Many Labs of either type are incredibly versatile. Many English Labs will do a passable job of fetching a bird for you. And many American Labs will do a good job of being the family pet. But there are differences that may affect your choice.
The working strain Labrador is likely to be easier to train. It may be easier for example, for an inexperienced owner to get him walking nicely on a lead. Extremes of sensitivity can occasionally lead to nervousness, but on the whole, temperament is sound throughout the breed. Outdoors in the open, American Labradors may have very strong hunting instincts and be more likely to pursue your local wildlife. This can be a problem for those living in rural areas or exercising their dogs in countryside populated with rabbits or squirrels!
English type Labs are often heavier than their field bred cousins, and shorter in the leg. They may also be less agile. As juveniles, some English Labs can be extremely playful and distractible which can be a challenge, especially if you exercise your dog in busy dog parks where they are mixing with a lot of other dogs.
My working type Labrador Tess, was quite grown up and sensible by the time her first birthday came along. My part show dog Rachael is six and is still not quite grown up!
I get asked this question quite a bit! Drakeshead is actually just a British Labrador Kennel name. The Drakeshead Kennel is a famous kennel in England that breeds and competes very successfully working type Labradors. They also export Labradors to other countries. And it depends a bit on what you expect from your dog, and on where you live.
Working bred labs respond best to lots of human contact and a more managed approach to exercise outdoors. American Labs also tend to be more focused on their handler and may be more responsive to training. This can be helpful if you want to get involved in a sport or activity that involves your dog.
