Education: This is important for the Labrador
The Labrador Retriever is an intelligent and docile dog. This makes his upbringing usually relatively uncomplicated. Nevertheless, you should pay attention to a few things – which are, you will learn here.
The education of the Labrador is also suitable for beginners. A fair amount of consistency is, of course, required, as well as a large portion of empathy. But the four-legged friend is very motivated, learns quickly, and wants to please his human (“will please”). Different commands and orders accept a Labrador usually very quickly.
Education: Starting early is important
It would help if you started with the education of your new animal roommate very early. In puppyhood, the four-legged friend should learn to become house-trained and understand first commands. As with all other dog breeds, it is also essential with the Labrador that you always give the authorities the same tone of voice, such as “Sit” always pronounced in the same voice style. This will make it easier for your four-legged friend to assign and implement commands correctly. In puppy or dog school, you can get support in training your Labrador if necessary.
You will usually achieve very positive results when training this breed with treats and praise. Labradors are very teachable and usually take to new lessons well and quickly.
Consistency in the education of the Labrador is essential.
What specific rules you set for your Labrador is up to your discretion. You decide for yourself, for example, whether the dog may enter the bedroom or lie on the sofa. The four-legged friend must follow these rules from the beginning. If the dog disobeys the law, it often helps to give him a long, punishing stare. But you can also teach him the command “no.
This is what you should look for in a Labrador.
This dog is amiable and open – even too loose for some people. With its enthusiastic nature, the Labrador, mainly because of its size, does not meet with enthusiasm everywhere. It is essential in training to teach him a certain restraint with strangers from an early age. Your dog should not greet every person with overzealous jumping – even if he only means well. Since Labradors are often very affectionate and focused on their master or mistress, they are not good at staying alone. You must also take this into account when training your four-legged friend and teach him to occasionally be on his own and not have people around him all the time.
Likewise, it would help if you did not underestimate the temperament of your Labrador. Animals enjoy learning and want to be challenged. Functioning as a cuddly family dog alone is not enough to keep your Labrador busy. For example, you could teach him to retrieve. Your dog is predestined for this; after all, the English word for retrieve, “retrieve,” is already in his full name: Labrador Retriever. Consequently, the training is easy for most animals, and they get employment and exercise simultaneously.
