About Labrador Retriever

Originally developed as a gun dog and retriever, the Labrador Retriever is a muscular, medium to large sized dog. Working Labradors tend to have lighter builds than Conformation or “show” Labradors, which are a little shorter and stockier.

Labradors usually have broad heads with noticeable eyebrows above large gentle eyes. Their floppy ears hang close to the head. A Labrador should have quite a chunky muzzle that, while not tapered, still looks handsome. The body is muscular and powerful. As Labradors were bred to retrieve waterfowl, they are excellent swimmers thanks to their webbed feet and strong legs.
