Temperament

All breeds of Labrador Retrievers are known for being kind and gentle. While these dogs are very friendly to strangers, they have even more affection to give to their beloved families. Widely considered the sweetest tempered dog breed, your Silver Lab puppy will light up every time you walk in the room — greeting you with kisses and affection when you come home after a long day at work. Since the Lab was bred as a hunting dog, this lovable giant will need lots of vigorous, outdoor exercise to keep him calm and centered. Labs are usually a big fan of fetching and chasing games, and enjoy a good romp in the yard with their family. Labradors also enjoy walks with their master, and are good swimmers that enjoy lakes, rivers, pools, and the beach.

Health

Though generally very healthy and long-lived — with an average lifespan of around 10 to 12 years — our Labrador Retrievers for sale are not without their unique health concerns. Like every breed of dog, there are a few conditions you should be aware of before you consider purchasing one of our Lab puppies. Understanding the risks allows you to know the signs and prevent small health concerns from turning into big ones. Lab puppies are at somewhat elevated risk for developing the following conditions:

  •    Progressive Retinal Atrophy
  •    Cataracts
  •    Hip & Elbow Dysplasia
  •    Obesity

Allergies are also a common issue for Labs. If your dog is constantly scratching or seems to have irritated skin, they may be allergic to something in their environment – like pollen or dust mites. Your vet can help you identify the source of the allergy and recommend the best course of treatment.

Coat & Coat Care

The Lab is a beautiful dog breed with a thick, glossy coat. Due to their double layer of fur, it’s important to brush them regularly to ensure that the outer coat and undercoat remain healthy and knot-free.

The coat should be brushed with a firm bristle brush 2 – 3 times per month to minimize shedding. In addition to that, baths are needed fairly infrequently. What is more crucial is ensuring that their toenails are well cared for throughout the year.
