Labradors- the breed to get!
Member Name: rachhol86
Advantages: Affectionate and loyal dogs
Disadvantages: Expensive to feed, need LOTS of exercise
I have a yellow labrador who turned 2 this week. We have had him since he was 10 weeks old. We are so glad that we chose to get a Labrador, he has been a treat. Like all Labradors he is VERY energetic and needs about 1 and a half hours of exercise a day - preferably with half an hours off lead exercise a day. Although he is now starting to calm down a bit over the past few months. He has been very easy to train - I think labradors in general are as they are an intelligent breed - he knows and can perform many tricks (for a treat)!! Labradors are renowned for being chewers however we have found that if we exercise him regularly and stop him from getting bored whilst we are not around (a Kong is perfect for this) then he does not feel the need to chew. Touch wood he has not destroyed anything valuable!
I would recommend labradors to anyone looking to buy a dog, their advantages are: very affectionate and loyal dogs/ easy to train/ keep you fit/ great with children and other pets/ very easy to groom (just need occasional baths and brushes).
Some disadvantages: expensive to feed!/ require a lot of exercise/
Definitely a breed to consider if you enjoy exercise and want a furry companion!
Summary: Affectionate and friendly family dog
