This is a video of Yellow Lab puppy Bailey in his first few days home. The days when everything is entertaining to them. And to us. When a rope will keep them happy and busy. When digging a hole in the sand is the end mission, and the reward is lying in that cool sandy spot they dig for themselves. Labradors have been ranked as the most popular purebred dog in the United States, according to the American Kennel Club. There are good reasons for this. They are so versatile, writes Vetstreet. They can help people by serving as our companion dog, a service dog, a guide dog, a hunting dog, an athlete, a sniffer dog, a rescue and search dog, a show dog, and a therapy dog. How many breeds can claim this wide range of potential?
What are Labradors like?
Labradors enjoy the outdoors–hiking, swimming, boating, jogging (if their health permits this). If you enjoy these outdoor activities, or if your family does, you would be a good match for a Labrador. They would be delighted to accompany you and participate in these outdoor sports. The best part is they get to spend time with you. As long as they get enough exercise, Labs are okay with apartment or country living. What they dislike is being isolated. They want to be a member of the family and be involved with you. These are active dogs who need physical and mental stimulation everyday. Like many dogs, if they are bored, they can become destructive. Labradors come in 3 colors–yellow, black, and chocolate. Labs have an undercoat to insulate them, and an outer coat to protect them. They DO shed. Brush them once or twice a week. You can read more about Labradors here.
Enjoy watching Bailey’s first few days in his new home.
