Cheerful and outgoing, Labrador Retrievers have been the most popular breed of dog in the world for many years.
That does not necessarily mean they are the perfect dog for all circumstances.
The ancestors of this breed first appeared in Canada, but the modern Labrador Retriever was developed in England during the 19th century.
They were used in the hunt to retrieve ducks that had been shot. They are an athletic breed that needs to work.
