There’s no doubt about it – Labradors are great dogs. For 26 years in a row, this adorable, family-friendly dog has been the top breed in the United States, according to the American Kennel Society. Read on for a few reasons why labs are so popular, and such wonderful dogs to own.
They’ll get you off the couch
Labs were originally bred fishing dogs in the 18th century, and were popular as hunting dogs in England in the 19th century. In other words, physical activity is part of their genetic makeup! Labs are great company for hikes and runs, and are always up for a game of fetch or Frisbee in the backyard. Labs also love to swim, so when you buy a lab from Silver & Charcoal Kennels, take the pup a family excursion to the beach or the lake!
They’re easy to train
Labs are one of the most intelligent breeds around, and they’re very eager to please. Housetraining your lab will probably be a snap, and he’ll learn to come when he’s called, sit and lie down pretty quickly. You can also teach your lab cool tricks, like running an obstacle course or solving a puzzle for a doggy treat.
They’re good with kids and other pets
Labs are known for their gentleness and patience, making them a great family dog for households with kids. Your children will love playing outdoors with your Labrador, who will most likely have as much energy as they do. Your lab will probably get along with other pets as well, especially if you introduce them when they are still a puppy.
