The lab requires both physical and mental exercises that keep it fit because a bored lab dog can easily get into trouble.
The dog breed will survive in an apartment environment if you expose it to plentiful exercise. The enormous exercise is attributed to the fact that the Labrador dogs were initially designed as hunting dogs. Consequently, they need an alternative source of interesting things to occupy themselves with and at the same time get rid of the extra energy that builds up in them with time. However, it’s most effective in a compound with a yard. A the same time, taking them out of the compound for a couple of minutes is not enough, as they soon become bored that can be alarming as a bored lab can be a bit destructive and rambunctious. These dogs are also associated with high levels of energy at a tender age to a period of two to three years. The pups can easily blow off any unstable people off their feet, including toddlers. Therefore for safety of the entire family especially that comprising of children, adopting an adult Labrador from a rescue team would be very effective. The mature labs are temperate and calm breeds available in a large number. The most fun activity of the labs is swimming with their webbed feet; they significantly enhance their ease of swimming.
However, before purchasing the dog, the primary factor to consider is heir health status. The Labrador breed has lately become a victim of long-term diseases. Hence, purchasing a healthy breed is not a permanent solution to the threat posed by diseases; however, keeping them healthy is the most crucial factor. The most common diseases among the Labrador retrievers include heart diseases, bone and joint disease, epilepsy, or even cancer. The healthy labs live to a period of 12 or 13 years while the above mentioned diseases take the lives of some labs at the age of 7 or 8. The best way to use to keep this dog safe include giving them the right vaccines, that prevent the occurrence of fleas, ticks and heartworm as well as providing them with the rightful healthy meals. The breed easily gains weight so it is advisable not to over-feed them so as to keep them healthy and physically fit. Another crucial step involves keeping dangerous objects that are risky to the dogs away from the homestead.
While taking the lab on their daily exercise, it is advisable for the person holding the lead to lead the way as the dogs mind is set to belief that the human is the leader and the leader should always lead the way. After the exercise, the lab will be glorious if you give them a job to complete exclusively on their own. The male labs have a height of 22-24 inches with a weight range of 60-75, while some type can go to a weight of 100pounds. The female labs have a height of 21-23 inches with a net weight of 55-70 pounds.
