The Labrador Retriever is, in many ways, the dog with the ideal temperament. A special blend of intelligence, honesty, and kindness has made it unrivaled as the most popular dog in the world. Bred originally as a fisherman's dog, the gentry were swift to see the potential in this sturdy retriever, and the Labrador was adopted as a versatile gundog, retrieving game over land and in water. Today, the Labrador is still highly prized as a working gundog, but its intelligence and good nature have been put to many more uses. The Labrador is used worldwide as a guide dog for the blind, its excellent nose has made it a first-class arms and drug detection dog, and its gentle nature has made it an ideal therapy dog. Quick to learn and eager to please, the Labrador has also made its mark in the competitive sports of Field Trails, Working Trails, Agility, and Obedience. The breed's handsome looks ensure its success in the show ring, but perhaps most important, the Labrador excels as the perfect companion dog.Until the puppy will stay for at least two minutes, do not attempt to move away, but reassure the pup with the word you are teaching, thus: aThata#39;s a good Down.
