It isn’t difficult to understand why Labrador retrievers are the most popular dog breed in the United States. Their affectionate nature and glossy coat make them an attractive option to those looking for a new pet. On the other hand, those traits don’t necessarily make them a breeze to train.
Actually this breed is powerful and can easily run away from you on the leash unless you have a firm grip. They are also known to be destructive in the house and can chew through everything from your favorite shoes to the couch. A Labrador retriever has an oily coat and they can shed a lot of hair. They also have a strong ‘doggy’ smell and need regular bathing because of this.
