Happy, Healthy and Obedient Labrador Retriever
If you own a Labrador Retriever, or plan on bringing one home soon, then you must have a lot of questions about training and taking care of the breed, especially if this is your first dog.
A common misconceptions about dogs is that all breeds are exactly alike, but it couldn’t be farther from the truth. Each breed comes with a different personality and each dog breed needs different training techniques, different amount of affection, different grooming needs and so on.
Labrador Retrievers are no different. They have a distinct personality which is unlike any other dog breed out there. This is exactly why I decided to make a website which covers every topic on this wonderful breed.
Training a Labrador Retriever
If you want to know how to train a Labrador retriever, then you must understand how their mind works. Training your Labrador retriever the wrong way or forcing him to learn something the way he doesn’t want to learn will only push him farther away from you and worsen his behavior.
As a responsible Labrador Retriever owner, you must teach your dog to obey you out of respect, not fear. Striking or yelling at your Labrador Retriever won’t make him respect you. Instead you should approach training by presenting yourself as the pack leader and through positive reinforcement.
