Training Your Labrador Retriever (Training Your Dog Series)

Books in Barron’s Training Your Dog series offer breed-specific advice on virtually every aspect of canine training, including housebreaking, obedience to basic verbal commands and hand signals, retrieving, and walking on a leash. Also covered are humane methods of breaking a dog’s bad habits. The typical Labrador Retriever is good-natured by temperament and willing to please his master–qualities that make him relatively easy to train. In this book, the author takes Lab owners step-by-step through her time-proven training method, which emphasizes positive reinforcement. Instructive color photos on most pages.

Labrador Retriever and Cheetah are Best Friends

Here’s an unlikely combination. Amani, a black Labrador retriever and Winspear, a cheetah are best friends. They celebrated their first birthday party together recently at the Dallas Zoo. The zoo threw them a bash complete with a big pop-cycle made of milk and broth and a couple of water troughs for good measure.

Canine Acne

Some of you may not be aware but dog breeds like labrador retriever puppies  and dogs can develop what is called canine acne. Canine acne usually breaks out on their chin, lips, and muzzle. It can also be associated with scabs and blackheads on their lips, chin and muzzle. While not usually harmful canine acne can become infected which like any other infection can lead to a whole host of other problems.

Canine acne can sometimes be confused with or mistake for food allergies. Some people report having good results with switching to a grain free dog food for example.

A few people on the chat forums have remarked that they changed their labrador retrievers bowls from plastic to steel or ceramic. Their dogs were allergic to the plastic. If you search the net you will also find dog owners who’s dogs have had problems with plastic toys that contain a chemical called BPA. Try finding dog toys without this chemical. Many dog toy makers have made the move to omit this from their toys.

Like everything else when your dogs health is concerned I will give the same advice. Go to a Veterinarian to be sure of what is wrong with your dog and to make sure you have a proper diagnosis.

The lab in the rain barrel or with the three tennis balls in his mouth was mine.

At the same time, you envision a dog who is gentle and completely in tune to your needs, your whims, and your every move. That perfect dog is likely a Labrador Retriever.

Dog Toys that Won’t Rip

Are you looking for good quality dog toys that won’t rip two minutes after  you get them? Well I am not going to guarantee 100% that your dog won’t tear one of these Tuffies but we have had the best luck in our house hold with them. They have lasted longer than any other stuffed dog toy that we have purchased over the years. That’s with two chocolate labs going at them.

They come in different animal types and have different names for you to remember them by. They float so you can use them in the water.  Each Tuffie toy is made with 4 layers. 2 layers are made of industrial grade luggage material, 1 layer of plastic coating, and the other layer is made of soft fleece on the outside. All of these layers are sewn together to make one super strong layer of material. Each toy is sewn together with 2 layers of cross stitching and then 2 layers of linear stitching. After the toy is sewn together an additional piece of black trim is added to cover the four rows of stitching. This extra piece of black trim is sewn with 3 linear stitches to give the product a total of 7 seams. These toys are machine washable (air dry) and float.
