The nature of the labrador retriever is truly angelic. These beings were supposedly sent from heaven to carry love and positive. Always cheerful and ready for new adventures, Labradors are created for movement, and therefore the owner of the dog needs to be so active and mobile. Without physical exertion, the dog will shift his attention to all sorts of antics and generally will not listen to the commands. But the exhausted, weary games of the shops turns into an affectionate, gentle creature that will fall asleep next to the owner on the couch and allow you to indulge yourself infinitely with stroking over the luxurious body. In general, labradors are prone to obesity, and they definitely need to move a lot. Be sure to keep this in mind when taking the breed.
Labrador retriever has a very flexible nature, and will feel good in the family of any composition. A lone person, a married couple or even a large family with small children in any number can take a puppy or an adult lab. In any case, it is necessary to engage in education and training, otherwise even such a gentle and kind creature as a Labrador will get out of control and turn into a hellish beast. In addition, never leave a child and dog of any breed alone, until the child learns how to behave properly with the animal.
Labrador is a relatively young breed. Its history begins in the XIX century. Then on the island of Newfoundland lived a perennial assistant fishermen "little Newfoundland." Several individuals of the breed were brought to England, where they were crossed with a curly-haired retriever, setter and English foxhound. That's how the modern labyrdom appeared. In general, Englishmen know the dogs well and it's not surprising that they managed to bring out such a marvelous breed!

Caring for a labrador retriever is not anything complicated. It is enough several times a week to comb the Labrador's wool with a rubber brush, which, besides small hair, improves blood circulation. To bathe a factory often does not make sense, it will suffice and two times for a year. For sure during the dog's walk it gets dirty, then wipe it off with a wet terry towel. Actually, the most difficult part of caring for a Labrador is paddocking, since it will have to spend a relatively long time. To quickly walk the dog and tire it physically you need to play with it in active games. Be sure to train the pet team "Aport" and "give". You can find out about them on the site in the section "Training of dogs".
How to feed a labrador retriever, dry food or natural, the owner chooses. Which is better - an eternal dispute. Dry food is more profitable in terms of time, while natural food will cost less money, which is true for small towns and rural areas. It is impossible to interfere with two types of food in any case. If you are in doubt about the composition of the feed, then it is better to either choose a better food (super premium class), or feed yourself. By choosing a natural food you can control the quantity and quality of the desired products.

Labrador dog is very tricky, but the master must be more cunning and be able to insist on his own. It is enough for a laboratory to know the commands "to me", "lie down", "sit", "place", "near", "give", "fu" - they are most often used in everyday life, and therefore the dog should be taught to them from the moment of appearance in home. Also, be sure to teach the factory team "aport" - it will help much better and faster walk the dog, tired it physically.
To bring up a puppy Labrador retriever could be called right, first you need to establish rules of conduct in the house. Labric must clearly understand what he is allowed, and what is forbidden.

In general, the education of the Labrador process is not complex, although these beings adore cunning! Be persistent, and you will very quickly be able to explain to the dog where his toilet is located, that you can not nibble at the master's things and bite the hands in hands, jump with the paws after the master's home, and also learn to pick up food from the floor or eat from other people's hands. To entrust the education and training of a Labrador child should not be earlier than from 8-10 years.
