Retrieving Skills

Some think this blog is just about our beloved Dakota and Cheyenne. Actually, that is half-true. You see, given our love of the Labrador Retriever breed, we feel that it is important to help inform other people about this specific dog breed. Too many people run out to buy a Lab from a breeder around their block and when they get it home, they are usually pulling out their hair.

Labrador Retrievers are a very particular breed. They are bred to innate skills that must be catered to in some fashion or the dog just isn't happy. That is why I like sharing video clips that I find on the dog breed itself.

This video helps give further insight into the Labrador Retriever dog breed and its need to use its mouth and retrieving skills. It is a great window into yet another aspect of this beautiful dog breed that all prospective dog owners should watch.



Sure, the video may seem a bit cheesy but the message is still real. Labs use their mouths and if you do not train them properly, they can easily train their mouths on your shoes, furniture, and other household items.

That is a great video. We were not able to introduce pepper to the water yet but come spring we intend to see how she likes it. One thing I learned growing up with my fathers lab is that you have to redirect them when they start chewing on things they shouldn't. One of my fathers labs over time ate about a quarter of her doghouse! I don't intend to allow pepper to get that bored lol.
