How Can I House Train My Chocolate Labrador?

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

I have a 3 month old chocolate lab and no matter what i try he does not seem to get that he has to pee outside…he is good with #2 outside but not peeing. actually last night i came home and just as i was about to walk him he laid on his back all peed all over himself..idk what to do anymore ive tried just about everything.

Have you tried talking to your dog? Some people say that you should hit your dog, rub its face in the accident and yell, then put it outside whenever it pees inside. However, this is just barbaric. I find it is best to sit your dog down and explain carefully why it is important for it to pee outside, and how upsetting it is for you when the dog pees on your floor. I think you’ll see that, when you reason with him, your dog will be more than willing to change its behavior.

Do You Think a Chocolate Labrador Would Make a Good Guard Dog?

Monday, October 11th, 2010

i have one and i was wondering if anyone knows. If someone broke in my house would he realise.

Depends on what you expect him to do. If you are looking for a dog that will bark, the lab probably will. If not it is trained relatively easy.
If you expect him to do anymore, like try to stop the person, no.

Labs are notorious for loving people. Most labs have never met a stranger.

Looking for Chocolate Labrador Retriever Breeders in Winnipeg Mb.?

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

I am trying to buy a chocolate lap puppy for my daughter for a surprise gift and I have already added posts to websites but I also would like links to websites with breeders that have puppies ready to go in november. Any help please…. thanks.
My Daughter is 14 and she has had a dog before so she has experience.

Go to petfinder.com Just put your zip code and you’ll see all the dogs in your area

Labs are the most bred dogs. Shelters have tons of them.

How old is your daughter??
I hope you know puppies are NOT easy to care for. You’ll need to get up every 2 or 3 hours in the night, vet bills are NOT cheap, DOGS do not train themselves and YOU MUST BE CONSISTENT, PATIENT AND RESPONSIBLE(NEUTER/SPAY YOUR DOG, NOT ABUSE, VACCINATIONS UP TO DATE, HAVE MONEY FOR EMERGENCIES, ETC)

Should I Get My 18 Month Old Chocolate Labrador Bitch Spayed?

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

Im a bit apprehensive as have heard their personality can change and they are subject to weight gain. Is this true? Also is there any high risks with the operation? Love my dog to bits and would be gutted if anything happened to her! I know Im soft! Ha! Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Don’t worry about getting her spayed. Unless you intend to breed from her, this is the best thing you can do for her - the more seasons she’s allowed to have, the greater the risk she could develop mammary or uterine cancer later on, and she will always run the risk of picking up a uterine infection if she stays entire. Plus if she’s spayed, you won’t have to confine her every 6 months or so!

There is always a risk every time a dog goes under a general anaesthetic. And there is a higher risk if you get her spayed while in season or coming up to her season (so do it mid-way between her seasons, say around 2/3 months from the previous one). However, this is a routine surgery, the vets will do pre-op checks (to make sure any risk to her is minimal) and believe me, the risks of her picking up the above conditions are far, far higher.

Her personality shouldn’t change - she may be inclined to put on weight, but it’s up to you to keep her weight under control and exercise her well. Her coat may grow a little heavier, but that’s not such a problem.

The pros far outweight the negs. so go ahead, get her done.
