About Labrador Retrievers
Labrador Retrievers are one of the most popular dog breeds in the world, and for good reason. These loyal, trusting, obedient and affectionate pooches embody all the values we look for in a companion and lifelong friend.

Labrador Retrievers are some of the cutest dogs on the planet—come on, just try to say no to that face.
Labrador Retrievers are extremely friendly—even with strangers. They might not make the best guard dogs but they LOVE cuddling!
Labrador Retrievers always seem to be puppies at heart, and never get tired of playing games and having a blast with their families.
Labrador Retrievers make training a breeze—these dogs were bred to respond quickly to commands, and they make great students.
Fun for the Whole Family
