    I am getting a labrador puppy from a breeder in 4.5 weeks. Instead of emailing everyone individually every week, she uploads pictures to her website every week so we can keep informed with their progress. The breeder emailed me when the puppies were born and informed me that there was one...

    Our eight months old chocolate lab retriever has started surfing our kitchen counter. Not just food. He also started picking tools like spatulas for chewing. It happens only when we are not around. He doesn't jump on to countertop when we are around. We try to keep our kitchen clean but we...
  3. General Dog Discussion
    Edited: Was a full venting post, didn’t feel comfortable leaving it all up. Basically my sister and her husband don’t want their black lab puppy anymore, he grew up and became too much work, too much like a lab. They can’t find him a home and they don’t want him anymore so they were secretly...

    Hi! My female dog Bella (10 years old) has recently become very aggressive towards my other dog Molly (also 10 years old). Bella is my boyfriends dog, and Molly is mine. We moved in together about 1 year ago, so the dogs have been living together for 1 year. When we first moved in, they got...

    Hi, We adopted the sweetest one year old dog on Saturday. She was listed as a Lab Mix. Does she look like a Lab Pit Mix, Lab Coonhound Mix, or maybe all three? She weighs about 65 pounds, rarely barks, very chill loves to lay around, has been great with adults and children.

    Hi, My husband and I are planning to get a lab puppy and we live in a one bedroom apartment. I wanted to understand how do people leave their dogs in the apartment when they are away for work. Do you confine the dog in a pen area or are there other ways to confine them that makes it easier for...

    I have a female lab Sophie that just turned 7. In the last year it seems like she tires easily. I assumed it was because this summer was really hot and she can’t tolerate the heat. But even on cool days she walks really slow and sometimes she won’t move. She’ll play with her friend biting...

    Good afternoon! My mother was thinking about rescuing a black lab from a local shelter. The black lab is 2.5 years old and honestly is very calm for a black lab. He is everything she wants in a dog, so I told her it couldn't hurt. Problem is, my mom lives in an apartment. Does anyone have...

    Hi everyone, I have a 7mth old male lab puppy, and he seems to suffer from anxiety whenever he is loose in the house. When we first got him, we crated him at night and used a puppy play pen during the day/night when we weren't able to keep an eye on him. As he got bigger, he got more...

    Mom dog is a chihuahua/lab mix and the dad is either a German Shepherd, lab/Pitbull mix, or boxer. I’ll post images of the litter, let me know who you think dad is?! The mom gave birth to 11 puppies, 3 died in he first couple of days, the 8 other just turned 4 weeks old (as seen in pictures)...

    Hello! I'm new to this forum, so I'm sorry if this is repetitive/if I'm posting it in the wrong location. Just to give some context, I have two dogs at the moment. One is a six year old female we've had since she was a puppy, the other is a five year old male we just rescued. Both labs. The...
  12. Dog Training and Behavior
    Hello! I have a 4.5 month old lab puppy. She's adorable and has been pretty easy to train when learning new skills. When we feed her, we've trained her to sit on a carpet about 10 feet away from her bowl and not to go to her food until it's on the floor and we've said "okay". Here's where I need...
  13. Dog Gear and Supplies
    I have a year old chocolate lab who destroys any toy I get her, we have a few that she hasn't destroyed yet (thank the Lord), I was wondering if anyone knows a good brand that is made for big dogs that can last a long while. She loves balls and tug ropes but destroys tennis balls in 5 minutes...

    Hi, I picked up a lab last weekend, and noticed an interesting feature. It has normal lab hair, and I know it is mixed. But one thing that stood out are his brown eyes, and he had this (I clipped it when got home) maybe 2-3in wave / curl at the very tip of his tail.. It's the weirdest thing...
  15. Dog Health
    My 1 year old lab has occasional incontinence (ie: leaks urine) when resting. This happens once or twice a month (at least that we know of). Its definitely an unconscious thing, she doesn't squat or anything and is otherwise completely house trained. I've heard this problem is most likely...
  16. Dog Training and Behavior
    My husband and I recently adopted a 1 yr old lab mix. He is extremely well-behaved most of the time, but has serious separation anxiety/attachment issues. It began with him being overly attached to me. I was the one who picked him up from the shelter. He would cry if I went into the bathroom...
  17. Dog Training and Behavior
    Ok so my dog (a wonderful lab) always howls when any instrument plays, especially when the clarinet is played. He throws his head back and very loudly howls and occasionally he kinda moans. And surprisingly he is able to match whatever note is being played pretty closely! So I was wondering...
  18. Dog Training and Behavior
    After the passing of our wonderful Lab two years ago, my wife became extremely depressed. Being a responsive husband, I contacted a breeder thru AKC and we bought a new Yellow Lab. Looks really identical, and my wife was all smiles. Unfortunately - no two dogs are alike. Teddy is not a very...

    My first post on this forum. Thought I'd share a video of my husky/lab mix attempting a new trick! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEN7StuGPhc

    Hi, everyone! I have a black Lab who's name is Cookie. He's a year old but I've realized he's too smart and he needs toys and entertainment stuff for him. Do you recommend something that has worked for you? I want to keep him busy, he's always paying attention to everything and I want to...
