One of the best all-round dogs in the world…

Not only are Labradors devoted and loving pets, but they are also used for retrieving game, as assistance dogs, therapy dogs, search dogs and ‘sniffer’ dogs for drug and arms detections. The athletic build of a Labrador, along with his strong nose and bravery and confidence, make him the perfect dog for any job!

Greedy guts…

Space and Exercise!

Labradors were bred to do physical jobs that use up lots of energy, both physical and mental! Therefore, it is very important when getting a Labrador that you have space and time. They need more than two hours of exercise a day and plenty of mental stimulation to avoid a bored, naughty and sometimes even a destructive dog!
