Consequence in raising the Labrador is important

Which rules you specifically set up for your Labrador is up to you. You decide whether the dog can enter the bedroom or lie on the sofa, for example. It is important that the four-legged friend follows these guidelines from the start. If he violates the rule, it often helps to look at him with a fixed look for a long time and punishably. You can also teach him the "No" command

You should pay attention to this with the Labrador

This dog is very friendly and open - even too open for some people. With his enthusiastic nature, the Labrador does not meet with enthusiasm everywhere, especially because of its size. It is important in the upbringing that you teach him a certain reticence towards strangers from an early age. Your dog shouldn't greet everyone with eager starts - even if he means it well. Since labradors are often very affectionate and focused on their owner or mistress, they cannot stay alone well. You also have to take this into account during the upbringing and train the four-legged friend so that it is occasionally on its own and does not always have people around.

You should also not underestimate the temperament of your Labrador. The animals enjoy learning and want to be challenged. A function as a cozy family dog ‚Äč‚Äčalone is not enough to keep the Labrador busy. For example, you could teach him to retrieve. Your dog is predestined for it, after all, the English word for retrieve, "retrieve", is already in its full name: Labrador Retriever. As a result, training is easy for most animals and they get employment and exercise at the same time.
