Labrador retrievers are one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States, often ranking number one in popularity rankings. Anyone who has spent even a little bit of time with a Labrador retriever can see why they are so well loved. Labradors are outgoing, trustworthy, and eager-to-please family dogs that maintain the playful behavior of a puppy into adulthood. They are full of energy and love to play. Given that the breed was originally built to retrieve waterfowl, it is no surprise that swimming and playing fetch are second nature for labrador retrievers. Labradors need a lot of exercise so they are a good choice for people with an active lifestyle or for families with children to play with them.
Is it Hard to Train a Labrador?
Labrador Retrievers are known to be one of the most intelligent dog breeds out there. This makes them easier to train than many other dog breeds. In fact, the American Kennel Club claims that Labrador Retrievers are the seventh easiest dog breed to train. However, just because a dog is considered easy to train does not mean you should be relaxed in your training regimen. Even Labrador Retrievers need routine and guidance in order to get the desired results from training.
If you have never trained a dog before and are not sure what to do, the dog trainers at Michael’s Pack have plenty of experience working with Labrador Retrievers and have achieved great results in the past. If you are looking to train a Labrador Retriever in your home, we can help.
Positive Reinforcement Labrador Training
At Michael’s Pack, we believe that positive reinforcement training is the only way to properly train an animal and that negative reinforcement techniques only serve to harm the relationship between you and your dog. We strongly believe that “Communication is Key” and that the training process should strengthen the relationship between you and your pet by building mutual respect and trust. The results we have seen over the years prove that positive reinforcement methods are the only way to get long lasting results from training.
