About Labrador retrievers

The dogs were used by fishermen to go into the water and pull the fishing nets to shore. The Labrador's thick, short coat protected him from the cold water & severe, icy weather. Labradors love water, and care must be taken not to let a puppy go near a pool, or it will drown, as it does not know how to get out. Fully grown dogs will love to get into water & play with a hosepipe.

The Labrador became popular in England as a gun dog and was used to retrieve game that the hunter had shot.

See origins of dogs

Children get along well with Labradors and the dogs love to play and to be kept busy. A bored dog can be destructive.

The Labrador is easy to train. They are good natured. Labradors have often been used as guide dogs for the blind, and have been trained to assist people in wheelchairs.

The word "retrieve" means to find and bring back, e.g. wounded game. Being a "retriever," the Labrador loves to carry and fetch things in his mouth. Use him to fetch things you drop!

Labradors are large, strong dogs who love to go for a walk or a swim. They like people and make great companions. Mind you don't get whammed by a wagging "otter" tail!

Labrador puppies are loveable, but once the dog reaches adolescence, it becomes a boisterous strong dog, who can knock people over, so do train your Labrador puppy to be obedient. 

Colour: black, chocolate, or yellow. The "golden" Labrador retriever is now called "yellow", so as not to confuse it with the Golden Retriever, which is a different breed.

Height at shoulder: males 56 - 57 cm, females 54 - 56 cm.

Class: gundog

 

Labradors were trained by Canadian fishermen to pull their nets to the shore. Once when Jesus's friends were fishing, they had to get a second boat to help them to pull the nets and catch the fish. They had been about to give up, but because Jesus urged them to try once more, they came home with a bumper catch! Let's never give up! Let's pray for strength to try one more time!

Read Luke chapter 5
