Labrador. His full name is a labrador retriever, which means a dog feeding a game. Do not forget about this his quality, because it is in his blood.
Bringing game is his life, his passion. Labrador Retriever prides itself on this. But do not think that this breed is intended only for hunters. Not a gun makes a Labrador happy, which is really important for him - it is to bring objects. Even if it's a stick. But even more important for him is water.
Labrador retriever likes to bathe at any time of the year and at any hour. He is also very fond of the owner, so he is ready to share with him the greatest joys in his life. Should immediately say, if you want to see your dog happy, you can not always remain dry, and not only on the street.
For a Labrador, water is always associated with fun, at least as a puppy, before he realizes that water games are forbidden in the house, he will certainly arrange several small floods. Immediately we will speak about one more problem that the owner of the Labrador retriever will have to face is his mobile tail.
Labrador Retriever wags them so happily and with such enthusiasm, as if he lives his life. This is one of the characteristic features of the Labrador and very pleasant, but not in the house. In the house, this can cause a number of incidents, especially if the dog is still young. Will we continue to talk about problems? In truth, we have already finished, because this ends all problems. Labrador retriever is so kind and affectionate and reliable dog that it is impossible to speak about it badly.
However, minor shortcomings can come to light, because this dog becomes incredibly common and it should be expected. Such a beautiful, kind and useful dog could not long remain in oblivion. Unfortunately, this medal has a downside, because sudden success is always dangerous for the breed, which has to face two dangers: firstly - the decrease in the quality of the puppies.
When there is a growing demand for some kind of breed, home-grown dog breeders grow like mushrooms after the rain. They themselves do not know what they are doing, because a real dog breeder has years of study, work, experience, good or bad. But hackers produce as many puppies as the market requires. And by the time when the general public can assess the quality of the breed, it begins to deteriorate.
From the point of view of cynology, the quantity and quality of things are not compatible. The second danger faced by dogs of fashionable breeds is that people are attracted to their appearance. They want the same dog as their neighbor or follow fashion and acquire a dog that does not know anything and does not suspect either of its merits or of the problems that may arise.
It is for this reason that we first started talking about the disadvantages of a retriever labrador. The one who really likes this breed will not be frightened by these problems. But it's better to have an idea about them from the very beginning. Despite all the listed problems, the Labrador is a wonderful dog, affectionate, kind to children, friendly to other animals.
He represents all the canine qualities, often embellished, but quite suitable for a labrador. Labrador retriever is a faithful, faithful, intelligent, affectionate and versatile dog . He is very fond of people and his last flaw is that he is completely unfit for the role of guard dog, because he also expresses his joy in barking.
Labrador, truly a dog for all: he adores children , affectionate and calm with the elderly. Labrador retriever is a strong and enduring companion for young and active people. In general, this dog has no contraindications, no side effects. This dog is for everyone, although not everyone can become a good owner for him.
The ideal host for a retriever labrador is primarily a person who can give him a lot of attention. This dog is vital to communicate with a person. The ideal host should know that the Labrador's tail should have at its disposal a large space. The rest of the dog does not require such a large space, but unfortunately they always go together.
Well, if the house has a garden, where the labrett retriever can give free rein to his cheerfulness. Well, if there is not a lot of steps, because the puppy should not go down and climb them at least until 4, 5 months. Until then, the puppy of the labrador retriever must be carried on his hands. But the Labrador puppy is very heavy. The ideal owner likes to work with his dog.
He does not need to be the master, but he should experience the same pleasure from learning as a labrador from school. If there is such a feeling of closeness between them, the Labrador will be able to learn to do any work. Hunting and hunting game remain his favorite pursuits, but if carried away by collecting mushrooms, he will do it quite successfully, thanks to a perfectly developed scent. If you are not too fond of the forest, then you can use the Labrador's instinct to find more home, but from this no less useful items.
We said that the Labrador Retriever is now a fashionable dog, so the risk of acquiring second-rate puppies produced only to meet the needs of the market is very large. In order not to be mistaken, it is better to contact a dog breeding club specializing in this breed and recognized as a cynological association.
There you can probably get thorough, healthy puppies , properly selected and nurtured. You must tell the dog breed what your family is by specifically indicating the presence of the elderly and children and explain what kind of dog you want to get. There is a difference between workers, rooms and exhibition dogs, and you must clearly explain what you need if you want the dog breeder to pick up a dog suitable for you.
Labrador retriever often turns out to be a glutton from a very young age. It is necessary to satisfy his desires, because it is very important for him to build up a layer of subcutaneous fat, which allows him to work long hours in the water without feeling cold. For this breed, high-quality, well-balanced dry dog food is perfect.
In addition, you should add to it fats, because the best dog food contains few fats, while the Labrador retriever needs a large amount of fats. If he prefers home cooking, you can alternate red meat and poultry: chicken, goose with cheese, eggs, fish, mixing them with seasoned olive oil porridge or boiled rice.
In addition to hunting, as we have already said, Labrador can be used in other areas. In recent years, dogs of this breed have been successfully used to find truffles, especially in Italy and France. Labrador searches more slowly, more deliberately, but the result is beautiful. He very carefully combs the site, even makes samples until he is sure that he hit the mark.
But you can not doubt, rare mushroom escapes from this meticulous dog. Recently, the Labrador began to take part in agility competitions. Despite its size, this dog shows amazing dexterity, easily overcoming obstacles. But one should not be seduced by his successes. For Labrador Agility is a game. But in terms of their physical qualities, these dogs are not born athletes. Let's remind that it is not necessary to add the puppy to employment of this kind of sports until its physical development will not be completed.
Labrador retriever - a wonderful, intelligent, useful, multi-purpose dog. But besides this, the Labrador is still a wonderful friend who teaches us that one can feel happy even in a puddle of water, that life should be rejuvenated every minute, that to feel part of nature and to love all life is the most natural thing in the world. Labrador is a capable and diligent student. But he is also a great teacher. And his valuable lessons should not be forgotten.
