  2. Dog won't go potty in backyard without someone with him

    Dog Training and Behavior
    Our Labrador was raised in a 4th floor condo for the first 2.5 years of his life. So every time he had to go out to potty, we took him on walks to do so. Fast forward to present day, we just moved into a house with a nice fenced backyard. We were excited because with a baby on the way, we...

  4. Should I get a lab puppy in an apartment?

    New Additions
    Hi, My husband and I are considering adopting a lab puppy. We live in a one bedroom apartment so space is definitely a challenge but I want to know if it's still okay to raise a lab in an apartment (we understand that the lab will need at least an hour of exercise everyday and couple of hours...

  6. Advice needed on grooming longer haired lab

    Dog Grooming
    Hi everyone! I own a beautiful chocolate Labrador named Bonnie and she's a pure blooded lab, but she's so different from the labs I usually see. She's super stocky, and has longer fur than normal. While she's not long haired, I certainly wouldn't call her short haired. She's always been...

    Hi all, I adopted a black labrador pointer puppy when he was about 4 months old and he is now 6,5 months old. And since I got him: he is shedding like crazy. I mean, after some hours the floor looks like it hasnt been vacuumed in two weeks. It stresses me soo much because I hate dirty floors...
  8. How Do I manage my pup's defiance

    Dog Training and Behavior
    My 7 month old currently has an issue with over reactive bursts of nipping and biting. They occur around the same time each night, somewhere between 7:30pm and 9pm. She essentially reaches a point where all attempts of redirecting to toys have become useless, she simply ignores them and goes for...
  9. a Pos-R training blog: 2 countries, 1 Lab, many changes

    Dog Training and Behavior
    just stumbled over this blog in passing - the dog, Spencer, is a M yellow Lab adopted at 9-MO; a complete hooligan on arrival - no training, no self-control, just an OTT madman. His primary human, Sarah, started the blog to track their training &...
  10. Trouble with Stairs!

    Dog Training and Behavior
    I have a year old chocolate lab who had no problem going up and down the stairs until a few days ago. Now she can't, which has caused problems since her outdoor area is through the basement and everything else is upstairs. It doesn't help that she is the most vocal lab I ever heard since she...

    Hi to all. A few weeks ago my dog Spunk developed a cancerous tumor. We visited a specialist who informed us that it appears to be thyroid cancer. The specialist encouraged us to get Spunk into surgery to remove the tumor as soon as possible. Unfortunately I was not able to schedule an...

  14. Brushing options for a Lab mix's coat

    Dog Grooming
    I've read some articles saying to go easy on a Lab's coat, for fear of stripping the undercoat. Below are the two brushing tools I use. I brush every two days or so, lightly. Which of these two brushes would you use most, and how often? I'm concerned in particular with the wire brush, even...
  15. Question about bathing Labrador Retrievers

    Dog Grooming
    Though my Tessa is a mix, her coat is pretty much the short stuff of black Labs. I've read some folks say they never bathe their Labs, and others that they do it rarely. Tessa is mostly an outdoor dog, so I'm thinking a monthly to bi-monthly schedule may be required. Already after two weeks with...

    Hello all, recently you explained to me what my "mal" might be, by "mal" I mean probably some GSD mixed with a floppy eared dog.. haha. Let's try it again with her brother, Plato. He's a "Lab mix" but he pretty much only has the coat of a lab. Head looks different, ears different, tail...
