Picking The Right Black Labrador For You

By: Brookesunderland
There is a lot to think about when trying to figure out which breed of dog would be best for you and your family. But when push comes to shove, it seems that a lot of people are finding themselves attached to the idea of a Black Labrador being a good pet for the family. And they are correct as these dogs, even though they are known for being excellent work dogs for the police, are able to make excellent pets in the home.

As it is, this breed of dog is one of the most popular dogs being used by police and other types of government bodies. These dogs serve as wonderful detectives and have a high working ability and never give up easily. These dogs are not only great for work but also for families as they are very gentle, intelligent, and they have a wonderful good nature about them. But, this breed must be trained on the basics of housebreaking because if left undone, they can become very boisterous.

There is a lot to love when it comes to Black Labradors and that is not just referring to how smart they are. These dogs are anything but your typical lap dogs, as they will grow to become very large. The females weigh in as the smallest but they are still anywhere from fifty five to seventy pounds. The males, the larger of the two, end up being somewhere between sixty-five and eighty pounds.

Their look is distinctive with their straight tail being able to give a nice strong slap it if you get too close to it. Their short hair is very smooth and it almost seems to be waterproof when going for a quick swim. It is also said that their strong and straight tail acts as a perfect rudder as when they swim, the tail helps them change direction. This breed is certainly one that is recommended by many people for their looks and personality.

Black Labradors are certainly an ideal pet for families as they are extremely gentle. In fact, they can be so gentle that some Labradors have been known to be carry to carry an egg in their mouth without ever breaking it.

This breed is very gentle and so much so in fact that they have been known to be able to carry an egg in their mouth without breaking it. But one downfall is that they do like to chew on things, but this habit can easily be broken with a little bit of proper training.

It does take about three years for Black Labradors to fully mature which means three years of puppy fun and training. But in the end, they are very mature and respectful dogs and the female is normally the gender that ends up being a little more independent versus the male.

Also, in order to keep your pet at a safe weight, you really need to watch how much the dog eats because they will eat and eat until they become obese.
