Our aim is to make certain our pups go to their furever families where they will be loved, spoilt and well taken care of. Poppy is an affectionate, sweet girl who is always by my side. Working from home means she is almost always in my office beside my desk or literally under my feet. Poppy has been DNA tested. A little about dad (Monty). Monty is certified pedigree - chocolate/liver colouring and just a gorgeous friendly boy. Monty is also father to our first litter. Each puppy will be microchipped, vaccinated and wormed. Those details will be listed once known. You will also be provided with your puppies health record and completed change of ownership form from Central Animal Records. If you are in the Geelong area and would like to meet our puppies this can be arranged. As with our first litter, these pups will only be sold to the best and caring families.

Unfortunately we have to sell our family dog seven, yes seven is his name. We don’t have the time he needs to accompany him and he is usually left along during the morning due to work and school. He is sprayed and so he gets excited easily. He is always vaccinated, always on time to take his heart worming tablets and is in very healthy condition. We will only be willing to sell to serious buyers and to a loving family. Thanks

Micky is a well behaved & super friendly dog. Every pet sitter we've left him with has always given great feedback about how calm and behaved he is. We are extremely upset of the fact that we have to give him away but it is becoming really hard for us due to allergies and asthma in our family, hence left with no other option. Micky is: - Healthy - Up to date with his immunisations - Desexed and looking for a caring family he truly deserves :)

The Ultimate Labrador Retriever Guide

About Labrador Retriever

The Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular dogs in the world for good reason. They’re smart, playful dogs that also excel at all sorts of work roles. They need a lot of attention and care, but they repay that with oodles of affection and wonderful personalities.

Grooming

Labrador Retrievers are heavy shedders and will need very frequent brushing.

Origins

Labrador Retrievers come from the island of Newfoundland, off the Atlantic coast of Canada. The breed was first called the St. John’s dog, and took its name from the capital city of Newfoundland.

Since the 18th century, Labrador Retrievers have helped fishermen haul in fishing nets, as well as recover fish that had fallen out of the nets. Labrador breeders chose dogs that would excel at working all throughout the day, a trait which has carried on to modern Labrador Retrievers.

Their long history by the sea has made them excellent water dogs, and their retrieving ability stems from their soft mouths and gentle jaws.

Most Labs these days are no longer kept as working dogs, and spend their days being pampered and adored family pets. However, some Labs are still working dogs, and they excel in a variety of roles.

Key Characteristics Of Labrador Retrievers

Are Labrador Retrievers Family-Friendly?

Yes, Labrador Retrievers are famously eager to please their owners and family members, and are almost always loving and affectionate with humans. They are also friendly with dogs and strangers.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Labrador Retrievers may suffer from:

Osteochondrosis Dissecans (OCD)

A joint disorder where flawed cartilage development leads to the detachment of a cartilage flap within the joint, causing pain and impaired movement.

Cold Tail

A condition characterized by a sudden onset of tail limpness and pain, often occurring after strenuous exercise or exposure to cold water.

Nature / Temperament

Playful, Friendly, Loving, Active, Intelligent

Suitable Environment

The Labrador Retriever loves the outdoors, and thrives in larger homes where they have the space to be playful. They aren’t well suited to being apartment dogs, as their natural instinct is to go through life at maximum intensity.

Labrador Retrievers will be able to adapt to medium or large sized properties. They love being smothered with affection, and need to spend most of their time with humans.

 

Other Considerations

  1. The Labrador Retriever is one of the most food-focused dog breeds and can be prone to weight gain.
  2. Labrador Retrievers tend to make very poor guard dogs as they are not naturally wary of humans.
  3. Most Labrador Retrievers are great swimmers due to their webbed feet, and letting them play in water is a great way to give them the exercise they need.

How can I take good care of my Labrador Retriever?

Nutrition

Labrador Retriever puppies should always be fed high-quality dog food. It’s best to give them a large-breed-specific food that gives them all the nutrients they require to grow properly.

Clean water should be made available at all times.

Since Labradors are prone to weight gain, it’s a good idea to weigh out your dog’s food even when they are puppies. Avoid free-feeding where you leave out food for extended periods of time.

You may consult with your vet about your dog’s diet and nutrition, if necessary.

Grooming

Labrador Retriever puppies and adults will need frequent brushing so that shedding is minimised. Apart from that, their grooming needs are moderate as their fur does not grow very long.

Exercise

Labrador Retrievers are working dogs at heart, and love having things to do – if you don’t give them a job, they’ll happily play all throughout the day. However, they tend to be workaholics and may drive themselves to exhaustion, which isn’t good for them.

Watch your Labrador’s habits and get them to take a break if they seem like they’re starting to get too tired.

A couple of 30-minute walks each day is a good start for most Labrador Retrievers.

Training

Training a Labrador Retriever puppy early and often is the best way to help them learn proper doggy behaviours. They’re happy to learn and even happier to please their owners.

Labrador Retrievers can start obedience training as soon as you bring them home. Because they’re so affectionate, they can sometimes tug on leashes and jump on people. These behaviours should be trained out as soon as possible.

If you are intending to have your Labrador Retriever become a service dog or therapy dog, professional training is required. If you enrol your dog in a training course, ensure that the training methods are based on positive reinforcement.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Labrador Retriever Questions

No, Labrador Retriever puppies do not do well when left alone for long periods of time, as they are meant to be close companions to their owners.

No, Labrador Retrievers do not tend to be aggressive – however, you need to socialise and train your Labrador Retriever puppy so that they get along well with strangers.

If you are searching for a Labrador for sale, we recommend that you adopt from reputable Labrador breeders. Labrador Retriever puppies from good breeders will be happier and healthier in the long run. The average cost of a Labrador for sale will be between AUD $2000 and $5000.
