How To Take Care Of Your Labrador Retriever Before Bringing It Home

Commitment Over The Long Run
To start with, getting a dog requires a commitment of at least 13 years. This is because dogs are pack animals and need to be surrounded by other dogs in order for them to feel comfortable and secure. If you don't have the space or time for your dog, then you're likely going to end up abandoning him or her. In fact, this is one of the main reasons why so many dogs are abandoned: people can't follow through on their commitments and end up leaving their dogs behind.


There's A Reason Why Pedigree Matters 
It is important to be aware of the pedigree of the dog you are buying, as this will help you ascertain its quality and health. You should also purchase your puppy at least 55 days old, in order to prevent it from contracting any illness.

Another thing to keep in mind is that puppies born in late winter or early spring (between December and March) tend to be more prone to ear infections and other respiratory illnesses. Make sure that your new pup is at least 55 days old when you bring her home so that she has had enough time to develop immunity against these illnesses.


Learn More About The Breed 
Labradors were developed over many centuries in the cold, wet climate of Newfoundland, Canada. They were originally bred to hunt and retrieve ducks, but they have since been introduced to other areas of the world and developed into a variety of different breeds.

Some of the most common Labradors today include the Labrador Retriever, which was specifically developed for hunting waterfowl. They are friendly and well-mannered dogs that are known for their intelligence and loyalty.


Make Sure Your Pup Is Well Trained 
There are several different types of Labrador Retriever training available, but the most common is obedience training. Obedience training teaches your pup how to obey simple commands like "sit" and "stay." It helps him develop good manners and socialization skills, which are essential for keeping him safe and comfortable around other people and animals


Train your pup regularly from when he's young so that he becomes habituated to following commands and behaving appropriately. You can also use positive reinforcement – such as snacks or petting – to help encourage good behavior. And always remember that puppies rebel against rules at first – so patience is key!

The Most Common Illnesses ;
Labradoodle dogs are prone to a variety of common illnesses and conditions, some of which you may be familiar with. Some of the more common include:

Allergic dermatitis or Atopy is an itchy skin disease of animals that is caused by an allergy to substances in the environment.

Bloat is a condition that occurs when gas accumulates in the stomach and causes distress or death. 

Cancer is a potentially fatal illness that affects humans and many other animals. 
Congenital heart malformations are birth defects that can occur as a result of genetic abnormalities. They may require corrective surgery or medication to prevent serious health complications later on in life.
