The Labrador Retriever has consistently been voted as the most popular dog breed since 1991. Many families around the world have enjoyed or are enjoying the company of a Lab. The breed is well-loved for their being highly intelligent, affectionate, and patient with kids. A Lab will never pass up an opportunity to play and have a good time. They love the water and are always ready to go for a swim. Since they can grow to be 60-75 pounds, Labs should receive proper obedience training to curb their instinct to bolt out of doorways or walk ahead of their owners.
