The Labrador Retriever is also known as a guide dog for the blind; as well as working with law enforcement agencies to help in the aid of narcotic detection. They are also great for working with the search and rescue teams as they are excellent hunting dogs with great sense of smell.

A male Labrador can weigh as much as 90 pounds and a female can weigh as much as 70.
They are equipped with webbed toes which makes them wonderful swimmers. The webbing between the Labrador's toes can also be a snowshoe in cold climates, keeping the Labrador from getting snow caught up in between their toes.

The Labrador's coat is also waterproof so that the fur does not retain water easily and does not get cold when swimming in the winter time. Their coat is short and frequently sheds.

The Labrador Retriever is a family-friendly breed of dog and they have great reputations with children and also around other pets.
They are a very versatile breed of dog and can perform a wide range of different commands. Labrador's make very good pets and they are excellent retrievers, as they love to carry something in their mouths.

They love to chew on things when they are puppies, but this can be prevented with simple training. This breed of dog is known for their soft mouth and also their ability to handle something that they do pick up with their mouth as gentle as can be.

Labrador Retrievers are a gentle breed of dog and usually not aggressive at all. The Labrador would not make a good guard dog, but they might bark if they hear a strange noise or sound.
