The Labrador Retriever should be brushed weekly, though twice weekly brushing may be needed during times of shedding.
The dogs that formed the foundation of the Labrador breed in England in the 1800s, were imported not from Labrador but from Newfoundland. They were originally called a St. John's Dog or lesser Newfoundland dog. They were black in color with white feet and mussels. Many don't know this but when a yellow coated Labrador was first born in England, they were immediately drowned by their owners. It wasn't until latter that the yellow coat variation was accepted and propagated.

The Labrador Retriever can easily adapt to the exercise level of your family, but actually need lots of exercise, including long walks and field sports.
This breed gets along well with children, other dogs, and most household pets. They are not considered to be great watch dogs, however.
I'm much bigger now... and will soon have litters of my own. Keep checking in for more details.
