In case you hadn’t heard… the Labrador retriever was named America’s most popular dog for the 26th year in a row. But why? What makes a Lab so special?
If you’re asking that question, dear friend, prepare to be enlightened by the simplicity of its answer: Labs are really nice.
Okay, so there’s obviously more to it than that, but, really, it has been suggested that the Labrador retriever’s continued popularity can be attributed to the seamlessness with which it can be integrated into a family. They’re great with babies. They’re great with kids of all ages. They’re great with adults and the elderly. And, just as important, they’re great with visitors, often trotting to the front door to greet your best friend, who just happens to be in town for the first time in years.
Generally, Labs are easy dogs to raise, to train, and to coexist with. But there’s a lot more to Labs than just being kind and welcoming. There’s history there, and skills, and crazy facts, among many, many other things. So, let’s put you to the test!
