                The Labrador Retriever
dogs are selected for their conformation to the standard and other characteristics sought by show judges. A similar selection process occurs in the Labrador in the United States although the purpose of a breed standard is to select for breeding animals and for dogs that embody the breed’s function.
The Labrador Retriever is pleasant, outgoing and tractable enabling it to serve the public in a multitude of venues. They are excellent family dogs that are trainable and need training. They generally love children. Labradors do shed and it may be wise to match the coat color of your dog to the colors in your home.
Labradors are the most commonly used breed as guide dogs for the blind and they excel as assistance dogs and as therapy dogs. Lab- rador Guide dogs have successfully guided their charges to safety in extreme situations. These dogs also work successfully as detec- tion dogs and tracking dogs both for the military and our police forces where a strong indefatigable retrieve drive is needed. The Labrador Retriever has served the US as military working dogs in multiple arenas.
Labradors are powerful and enthusiastic swimmers that can tolerate cold water. They are capable of remaining quiet, mark- ing falls and retrieving both dead and wounded birds. Many are also outstanding upland retrievers who work in the field and are eligible to compete in AKC Hunting tests and AKC Upland test for Retrievers.
The Labrador Retriever is overall a healthy breed. The CHIC requirements for the breed are OFA hips, OFA elbows, OFA eyes, EIC testing and testing for the dilute gene. Recommended addi- tional tests are the prcd PRA test, cardiac testing, and CNM test- ing. While other testing is available, the tests should be selected based on Parent Club and veterinary advice.
The breed deserves the popularity it has attained and it is the mission of the breeders to maintain the qualities that make them the most desirable dog in the United States.
