The Labrador Retriever is perhaps the most perfect dog in the world. Whether your want a family pet, a companion dog, a working dog or an assistance dog, the Labrador Retriever is hard to beat.

Labrador Retrievers are intelligent, well-balanced, friendly and adaptable. They have no particular mental hangups, are good with children and other animals, good natured, hard working, loyal, playful, patient, gentle and easy to train. What more could one possible want from a dog?

Labrador Retrievers are also exceptionally versatile, perfectly willing and able to adapt to their surroundings and situation. Bred as working dogs, they are athletic and energetic dogs capable of working all day without respite. But they are more than happy to adapt to apartment life with the single-person owner, companion dog for the elderly and less able, and assistance dog for the blind and disabled.

If there is a more versatile dog breed in the entire world, we’ve yet to hear of it. The Labrador Retriever looks set to continue being the world’s most popular dog!
