Labradors are widely recognized as extremely family and intelligent dogs. This race has been good for the image of contemporary culture as an element of a happy family. That is why they are always very desirable in our homes and enjoy great interest, especially among people who have never raised their own dog.
Labradors in shelters
Sometimes, however, any dog can turn out to be a burden that cannot be dealt with. For this reason, many Labradors go to shelters. However, there is a widespread opinion that only sick and old animals go there. Owners give their charges often for personal reasons.
That’s why in the shelters we can meet dogs of all ages, including pedigree. If we have decided to include a Labrador in our family, it is worth looking for advertisements on thematic sites or to call to nearby shelters.
Adapted “lab” will certainly repay its love, and we will gain a feeling that we gave the pet a second chance. If the dog landed in the shelter, most likely his previous home did not give him the fullness of love and interest. Accustomed to negative experiences dogs in a new home will quickly feel the difference and start to behave more confidently, emanate humour and energy.

Puppies and their upbringing
Although all puppies are beautiful and cute, it is worth remembering that their upbringing involves a significant amount of time, energy and eaten furniture. It should be considered whether at the time of adoption we will be able to give up part of our daily duties to educate the dog. A poorly behaved puppy can cause trouble for the rest of his life.
Undeterred separation anxiety can in the future pay back to the damaged furniture and the howling of the dog during our absence. Labradors have the opinion of a respectable breed, which makes the adult dog even easier to adapt to in a new environment and easily endure separation during our stay at work. It is also worth remembering that dogs put into a shelter undergo evaluation under the guidance of behaviourists.
After observation, the specialist can determine to what conditions the dog is suitable and suitably adjust it to our situation at home and the possibility of paying him enough attention.
Puppies and grown up Labradors
Young Labradors can react in a specific way to children. However, this is not about aggression, because this race is famous for its peaceful attitude towards people. The problem may be teething in puppies, which often involves “biting” small householders. Dogs are more likely to show their more brazen behaviour towards smaller individuals, which makes our children a victim of small, prickly teeth.
Adult dogs are already well-trained. This allows a much easier and more accurate match of the dog’s personality to our expectations. A hyperactive monster can grow out of the couch puppy, which will calm down after the hour of throwing the ball in the park. Regardless of the time of day and year – even in the middle of a severe winter, we will be faced with a choice whether to tire a dog through a portion of outdoor physical activity, or let the coffee table to the end of the fire.
