Labrador Retriever - Guide to Labrador Retrievers

Labrador RetrieverDescription: Although the Labrador Retriever as it is known today was developed in Britain, originated from dogs found along the East coast of Canada. These dogs had been known variously as the Black Water Dog, the Lesser Newfoundland, or the St John's Dog; they were descendants of dogs taken there by explorers, settlers and fishing crews. The dogs, found to have excellent hunting and fishing abilities, were brought to England early in the 1800's where their "modern" development carried on. Crossed with other local sporting breeds, the strong and sturdy Labrador Retriever became, and continues to be, England's most popular gundog. The Labrador Retriever or simply Lab for short excels in obedience and field trials, needs plenty of outdoor exercise and especially enjoys swimming.

Health Problems: Labrador Retrievers are susceptible to hip dysplasia and all breeding stock should be x-rayed and certified clear. They are also at risk for several eye problems including progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), cataracts and retinal dysplasia, therefore all breeding stock should be examined annually.
