about the breed
As a new puppy, your Labrador Retriever will require specific care to keep them healthy, happy and feeling great. Though not particularly challenging, caring for a Labrador Retriever does require some level of precaution and patience. They require lots of physical exercise and mental stimulation, as well as a large space where they can run around, explore and play.
Training a Labrador Retriever also calls for a broad range of activities to avoid boredom and optimize the learning process. Labrador Retriever puppies also need frequent mental stimulation to stay sharp and ward of boredom induced destructive behavior.
If you like your slippers intact, then it’s a good idea to take your Labrador Retriever on regular walks and play with them often. Labradors Retrievers are also instinctually attracted to the water – owners with swimming pools should fence them out or get used to coaxing them out of the pool and drying them off.
Like all dogs, your Labrador Retriever puppy will likely beg for food and eagerly chomp down any food you give them. That’s why it’s very important that you feed your Labrador Retriever puppy a nutritious diet and discourage others from feeding your puppy human food.
It’s best to start your Labrador Retriever puppy on moistened dry puppy food 3 to 5 times per day for no longer than 10 minutes per feeding. Remove their food after 10 minutes even if they haven’t finished to help them learn that food will not be provided unless you provide it.
It’s also very important that you monitor your puppy’s health and wellness in the early stages – if they appear skinny and eagerly finish every meal, then you may need to increase the amount of food in their diet and vice versa.
What Should I Feed My Labrador Retriever Puppy?
Stay away from dog food brands that use artificial ingredients, preservatives and fillers like grain, wheat and brewers rice. When given the choice, your [breed] will most certainly choose wet food over dry food.
However, due to the high occurrence of dental disease in the breed, we recommend feeding your Labrador Retriever a blend of wet and dry kibble, which is better for their teeth. There are some foods you should never feed any dog, like:
- Pitted Fruit
All of the above are considered poisonous to dogs and should be kept well out of their reach. Dogs who ingest these foods should be taken to the vet immediately.
Retrievers are sporting dogs. – they spend hours outside in the fields kicking up mud and splashing through the water, which means they are going to need regular grooming to look and feel their best.
The Labrador Retriever has a sleek, dense coat that does shed but not as much as might think. It can easily be managed with weekly brushing, which also promotes new hair growth and distributes skin oils throughout the coat to keep it healthy and shiny.
Labrador Retrievers also need a bath once every month, unless they get dirty from being outside. Though, it’s important not to over bathe your Lab, as it can remove those important skin oils. You’ll also need to ensure you trim its nails, as overly long nails can cause the dog pain when walking or running on hard surfaces.
Retriever puppies need a fair amount of daily exercise to stay fit, happy and healthy. As large, energetic dogs, they need more exercise than a quick stroll around the block. – they need long, sustained bouts of exercise to burn off their excess energy and minimize boredom.
Daily exercise also improves circulation, and provides opportunities for your puppy to socialize and explore its environment, which is critical to proper socialization. However, it can be easy to over-exercise a Labrador Retriever puppy. Be sure to keep an eye out for signs of exhaustion.
As a general rule, Labrador Retriever puppies need approximately 5 minutes of exercise for each month in age – twice per day. At 3 months, your Labrador Retriever puppy needs about 15 minutes 2x per day. At 6 months your Retriever puppy will need 30 minutes of exercise 2x per day and so on.
Retrievers are remarkably versatile and take to training as easily as they take to water. They have an innate ability to follow commands and a strong desire to please, which makes training a breeze.
Like all dogs, the early you begin training your Labrador Retriever puppy, the easier the training process will be. The key to achieving amazing training results is to be confident, consistent and positive throughout each training session. And don’t forget that food is always a great motivator.
Housebreaking begins the moment you bring your new Retriever puppy home and introduce it to its new environment. Your puppy will be very excited to explore its surroundings and learn about its new home.
Puppies learn by putting things in their mouths. As retrievers, Retriever puppies are especially inclined to pick things up in their mouth and carry it around. Therefore, it’s very important that new Labrador Retriever owners keep a close eye on their puppy for the first few months until it learns what it should and shouldn’t do.
We recommend confining your puppy to one room of the house for the first couple of days with their bed, water, food and toys. Once they have become used to that room, you can begin to introduce your Labrador Retriever puppy to the rest of the family.
We find it’s best to create a schedule that is both convenient for you and helps you provide meals on a predictable schedule; establish a bedtime; take your puppy outside to “go potty” at regular intervals and exercise/play with your puppy frequently and at regular intervals.
Potty training a Retriever is a fairly straightforward process. Remember to use the same words and phrases to indicate when, where and how you want your puppy to do its business.
Watch for signs that your Labrador Retriever needs to go potty like pacing, sniffing, and squatting. When you notice these behaviors calmly and quickly hustle your puppy outside and to the spot you’ve chosen.
Then say a phrase similar to “go potty” and praise them when they get it right. With practice your Labrador Retriever will learn where to “go potty. It can take up to 6 months to fully housebreak a Labrador Retriever puppy.
How to Crate Train a Labrador Retriever Puppy?
Crate training a Labrador Retriever puppy is important, as it provides your puppy with a place where it can feel safe and comfortable when you’re not at home. Start with a crate that is big enough for an adult Retriever to stand, turn around and sit or lie down in without issue.
It’s best to place your puppy’s crate in your bedroom for the first few weeks so they associate the crate with the comfort of your presence. Introduce your puppy to their crate with a few treats inside.
Then feed your puppy once they move inside the crate so they begin to associate food with the crate. Remember to place your Labrador Retriever puppy in their crate and give them a treat when it’s time for bed. Repeat this process every day until your puppy sleeps in its crate without instruction.
Labrador Retrievers are an incredibly kind and friendly breed but all dogs need frequent socialization so they can learn how to behave in public. As with housebreaking, the early you begin socializing your Retriever puppy, the easier it will be for it to adapt to new situations and environments.
A great way to socialize your Labrador Retriever is to sign up for a puppy training class with other puppies the same age, or set a play date with a well behaved adult dog that you know is friendly, so your pup can learn how to behave from an experienced pooch.
Tug-of-war and supervised trips to the dog park are also great ways for a Retriever puppy to explore their environment, meet other people and play with other dogs while feeling secure in your presence.
Born with high intelligence and innate ability to grasp training at a young age, few dogs can match the Retriever’s ability to grasp training and respond to commands. Though training a Retriever is not particularly challenging, there are things you can do to make the process easier for you and the dog.
The best thing you can do to ensure the success of obedience training is to begin early and practice positive reinforcement techniques with consistency and patience. Like all dogs, Labrador Retrievers thrive on positive-reinforcement training.
Rather than punish your puppy for unwanted behavior, motivate them to complete the desired behavior by praising them when they get it right. Offer them treats and food when they correctly execute the command. Then reinforce the behavior by practicing the command until they get it right every time.
