Pros & Cons of a Labrador Retriever | Dog Breeds

I’m Julia Szabo, also known as a Pet Reporter,
and I am the “”Living with Dogs”” columnist for I’ve actually written 6 books and I’m hard
at work on my next one. It will be about about dogs — that’s as much
as I can say right now. I love dogs and I think nobody’s life is complete
without one. So I’m here to tell you about a variety of
different dogs breeds that might suit your lifestyle. I hope you’ll adopt one soon. The Labrador Retriever; is probably one of
the most popular breeds in the world, certainly in America. It’s always in the top 3 of the most popular
breeds. They’re incredibly great dogs, they can be
trained to do so many things. The most recent interesting application for
Labradors in terms of helping humans, is, that, they’re amazing at, detecting the, sugar
lows, that people with diabetes experience. So, uh, their actually what’s called “”Dogs
for Diabetics””, that’s the group that trains them and what they do, is that, they take
dogs, Labradors, who didn’t make it through all the way, to the “”Guide Dogs for the Blind
Program””, and, for whatever reason they flunked, maybe they liked to rearrange a person’s shoes,
and you can’t do that to a blind person. So, that dog still has all that amazing training. So, they’re recycled to actually help people
with Diabetes. So, um, Labs are incredible, they’re very
playful, they’re very athletic, and they love an athletic owner. A friend of mine, um, she’s an editor and
a writer, and she runs every single day with her lab. She’s actually, like, a marathon runner and
the way she stays in shape is running with her lab, and the lab stays in shape, it stays
happy, it doesn’t destroy the house. Um, they’re amazing water dogs. They love to be around the water. So, if your lifestyle in anyway incorporates
swimming or boating or any of those things they would love to be with you.

    Yeah my friend has a pure breed chocolate lab… She hates baths she hates the rain she hates water..
    She is as lazy as anything can be.. she won't walk more than a block and a half and when we tried to go further after a week or so she began to hate going out altogether..
    She would act like I am not going out!! you make me walk too far!!
    So we cut back the distance to a block or two and she then would go out again wantingly.
    but if we try to go just 5 steps more she will sit down hard and stare at us like no way jose
    She doesn't like running around she just wants to lay on her bed next to the sofa and watch tv with us… Then she is happy.. She is not sick she has been like that since she was a puppy and the vet said that is just her personality… She is a couch potato

    I would like to buy a Labrador retriever but the problem is that I have to go to school for 7 hours during that time I might have to leave the puppy alone would it be okay if I leave the puppy alone for 7 hrs ?

  11. tigerise 11 says:

    Can they do agility?

  12. emilyhorch says:

    You really need to update the title of your video – it has nothing to do with pros and cons of Labradors and very little to do with Labradors at all really. However, I love pit bulls, so it was fun to see your pitties.

  13. Brian Mckenna says:

    im thinking about get ing a lab a choclate brown one does any 1 have 1 what are they like

  14. Angela WM says:

    the pros and cons were a short list at the end that didn't include cons. I love my lab, but there are cons. like getting bored easily (even at 10), tendency toward obsessive behavior, over excitement, etc. I love my lab, and he's one of the best things that every happened to me, but I'm not gonna lie, it was an adjustment.

  15. Skarical Core says:

    What about the cons?

  16. Jeffery says:

  17. BroPanda Gaming says:

  19. Czo Lo says:

    Hopefully, if you love dogs so much, you wouldn't crop their ears for some sort of aesthetic ideal… That's seriously cruel.

  25. Alexis Floyd says:

    Omg why all the hate on labradors? I love my black lab to death they are great for families they are eager to please great for people that are active. My lab is one of my best friends! U have to train it when u are young. And yes, they are hyper, they are big dogs and if u leave them in the house all day they will chew things up when they are young so u have to take them on walks. I taught my lab to go on off leash walks and we do it almost every day.
