    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.

    New Additions
    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...
  4. My dog tires quickly

    Dog Health
    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...
  5. Black Lab in Apartment

    General Dog Discussion
    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...

  9. Crashing into food bowl

    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...

    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...

    New Additions
    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...

    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...
  14. Why/how does my dog sing?

    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...
  15. Our Aloof Lab

    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...
