Labrador Puppy Guide

poolThe Labrador Retriever

As a breed the Labrador needs no introduction. Probably one of the most famous, popular and widespread breeds in the world, they have been a familiar sight for decades by the sides of heads of state, on advertising and in the ring of honor at Crufts. They were developed in Britain as an all round gundog. As such they still retain the webbed feet and waterproof double coat of their forebears and their greatest joy in life is to go for a swim or to dash off and retrieve something for you. They are valued for superb temperaments and willingness to please which make them as good a family pet as a working companion.

Things To Consider Before Ownership

Is A Labrador The Right Choice Of Dog For Me? A purebred dog as versatile and talented as the Labrador Retriever attracts many admirers. Whether you are looking for a puppy for a family pet or house companion, a show dog, a field dog, or a competition dog, there are many serious factors you should think about. Do you think you have enough time to devote to your new Labrador? Even a pet Labrador will require considerable time to train. Of course, a field dog or obedience/agility dog will require hours of daily attention and special training. The Labrador is a demanding dog who will want to share his whole life with you, consider your choice carefully.

Puppy Checklist

Puppy Checklist

Here is a list of things that you will probably need for your new Labrador puppy.

- A crate
- Stainless steel water & food bowls. (These cannot be chewed)
- A light, thin, nylon lead and collar suitable for a puppy.
- Kongs, tennis balls etc., Whatever toys you buy, make sure they are fun, safe, durable and washable. You will need to teach your puppy that its toys are the best things to chew on, not the sofa or your furniture!
- Food. Select a high quality food, your breeder may have given you a few weeks supply so that you can continue it's normal feed, gradually changing to your chosen food if applicable.
- Bedding. The choice is up to you, but remember it may well end up being chewed.
- An I.D tag. (Micro-chipping is also a very good idea- speak to your vet about this)
- A good quality brush to groom your puppy.
- Poop Scooper and bags
- Some new towels as your old ones will be used for drying / cleaning your new pup :)
- Toothbrush (good to start this really early so he accepts it as normal)
- Baby Wipes - Usefull for cleaning all over your new puppy
- Big supply of Kitchen Roll - Handy for wiping floor from waterworks problems, mopping up drinking water, wiping muzzles etc
- You can now buy absorbent pads from most large pet stores, to absorb the odd little toilet accident your puppy may have.
-  A camera - to take lots of pictures

Getting Your Puppy

Getting Your Puppy

The safest way for you to obtain a puppy is to find a reputable breeder. This is also the case even if you are not looking for a show specimen or a top contender in field work. The novice breeders and pet owners who advertise at attractive prices in the local newspapers are probably kind enough towards their dogs, but perhaps they do not have the expertise or facilities to successfully raise these dogs. A insufficient diet can cause indigestion, weak bones, rickets, poor teeth and other problems. The colour of the Lab you choose, is strictly a matter of personal choice. While no importance is placed on colour in the breed, only the three colours - yellow, black and chocolate - are recognised as true Labradors.

There should be two important documents your breeder should give to you, and these are the Health Certificate and registration papers. The breeder should register the litter and each pup with AKC ( American Kennel Club)  and it is necessary for you to have all the paperwork if you plan on showing or breeding in the future. It is best that you know the breeder's intentions on which type of registration they will obtain for your puppy. There are limited registrations which may prohibit the dog from being shown or from competing in non-conformation trials such as Working or Agility if the breeder feels that the pup is not of sufficient quality to do so. There is also a type of registration that will permit the dog in non-conformation competition only.

Your breeder should always be available for you, before and after you receive your puppy. They should be a reliable source of help as you and your puppy adjust to life together. By visiting litters in action you will be able to get a firsthand look as the puppy 'pack' and get to know what each of the pup's individual personality is like, you might have found a particular one that appeals to you. If you haven't found the puppy of your dreams, observe other pups in other litters, as this will help you learn and recognise certain behaviour, which will give you a good indication as to the personality of the pup. Some pups may be leaders, some less outgoing, some may be confident, others shy, playful, friendly, aggressive, etc.,

When you finally acquire your new puppy, he or she should be examined by your vet as soon as you buy him or her. Your vet will be able as well as start your puppy on a vaccination programme. Your home should also have been prepared for your new puppy's arrival. Anything potentially dangerous should be moved out of reach.

Bringing Your Puppy Home

Moma and PupBringing Your Puppy Home

Labrador retriever puppies are absolutely irresistible. Every time I see a Lab puppy they steal my heart. Many people act on impulse when seeing such a cute puppy and don’t realize the tremendous amount of work which is involved in training such a ball of energy. The average amount of time for a Labrador puppy to settle down and act like an adult dog is 2-3 years.

You will probably get your new Labrador puppy when it is  8  weeks old. Remember that your puppy is being separated from his mother, siblings, and everything that he has known in his life. Going to a new home without his familiar surroundings is going to be the most upsetting experience of his young life. A puppy is still a baby and will need a great deal of affection and care.  The first night at home away from Mom and littermates can be challenging - lots of middle of the night whining.

Labradors, even as puppies, see themselves as housedogs. It is extremely important to teach your puppy the house rules from the very beginning and then let them be a part of the family. These early lessons need to come with gentleness and kindness. Create train your puppy.
