    Advertisements
    Ok tell me the real honest dont hold back honest good and bads of black labs. DH wants one. We have the room for one and he is shore duty for 4 years and this work is actually following a real working scheduled that he's home at a certain time every single night so we could get another dog and be good to go. I just want to know everything about them to be prepared before we decide. so PLEASE HELP!!

    OMG I use to raise Chocolate Labs, FABULOUS animals! I LOVE them! I have nothing bad to say about them except they are more likley to get hip displagia (sp?) They make wonderful pets, I recommend them 100%

    Kara and I had a golden retriever that was a total ditzy blonde but sweet.. typical retriever lol My parents have her now and they had another golden before her... weird thing is that dogs name was Sandy and our new next door neighbors dogs name is Sandy and she's a golden! But DH had a black lab guide dog that they trained.. now his parents bought another black lab so now he wants one again. I would be happy with a goofy golden. Or maybe a yellow or chocolate lab, I've heard theyre smarter.. dont know how true that is.

    I'm not sure I like the barking part. Belle does NOT bark, I can count on one hand in the 10 months we've owned her the times shes barked and once was today b/c she was afraid of something in the backyard at night.

    My labs were VERY smart and reliable, except they liked to swim SOO they would take off to the lake everyday. But their good animals, and their loyal to know end. If your looking for a new best friend, I would suggest a lab!

    We've always had labs and they have always been really smart and very kind and loving and loyal. I think they are one of the best family dogs you can get!

    We had one for 14 years and he was a good dog but he loved to bark and they stay puppies for so long lol He was 8 and still acting like a puppy lol The one bad thing about him was that they are used a lot for hunting and he would chase and kill any small little furry thing that would run away from him. He did ok with the cats but before my mom moved where she is now he killed the neighbors chickens and tried to attack their cows lol
