Choose A Labrador Retriever Puppy To Add As A Family Pet

Juan Harris

If a pet is desired by you, your spouse, and your youngsters and you are trying to decide upon an animal type and breed that you will all be happy with, maybe you would like to learn about the personalities of Labrador retrievers and what you will need to keep your pet happy and protected. The Labrador retriever is a very popular dog breed. This type of dog is known for its loyalty, ability to learn commands, and playful demeanor.

Learn About A Labrador's Personality

Chocolate and yellow Labradors are mild tempered, fun loving, and trainable. Puppies are fairly active and will require a lot of attention, so be sure that you and your loved ones are ready to commit yourselves to the care of a new puppy.

A puppy can get into quite a bit of mischief on their own, so it is best to accept that they may tend to chew on items in the home from time to time until they have learned what you expect from them and are able to follow simple commands. Of course, puppy-proofing your home will reduce the stress associated with damage to your or your loved ones' possessions.

Labrador retrievers like to spend time with their human family. If they are left alone for a long time, incidents may occur that coincide with their uneasy feelings of being alone. Make sure that your new addition will not spend time in isolation. Constant companionship and a daily routine will help your puppy adjust to their new home and family. 

Choose Your Puppy And Then Get Ready

If you have located a pet store or individual who is selling Lab retriever puppies, bring your family along with you to view the puppies. Find out if the puppies have received their shots and have been dewormed.

Spend time with all of the puppies so that you can see how they interact with one another. Tell your spouse and your children that you will all need to come to a consensus when it comes time to choose one of the puppies.

After selecting a chocolate or yellow Labrador that will be your new pet, ask the person who is selling the puppies if they can hold your new pet until you have purchased everything you will need for him/her and have set up their new eating and sleeping quarters. Then, get down to business by purchasing bedding, a dog training manual, dog toys that you can use while training your pet, food, bowls, a leash, and a collar.

About Me
Bringing a New Kitten into a Home with Cats

Hi! My name is Lisa Caldwell, and I often refer to myself as the cat lady. My husband isn’t as proud of that title as I am. Oh, he loves our cats. It’s just that every time he says no more cats, it seems I find a poor little kitten stranded in the snow or wandering the streets. We have a nineteen-year-old cat, a twelve-year-old, and three cats under the age of two. Each one has been rescued or came from the local Humane Society. We also have an eighty-five pound dog who thinks he’s one of the cats. I never bring a new kitten into the house and just toss them into the mix. I have a particular method of introducing a new pet into the household. I am going to share how this works, also how we feed and care for new kittens. Enjoy!
