Let’s face it, sure, Labradors are indeed America’s #1 Dog for their amazing personalities, temperments, trainability, adaptability, skills, talents, beauty, and so on….. But left unguided, they can be a handful. Which means, far too many neglected pups are left sitting in shelters across America?…. It could be that although the amazing Labrador Retriever is all that wonderful stuff, like any living creature without guidance and healthy boundaries, they’re left to their own devices to figure things out, which can mean great headaches for their human friends. Solution: teach them a few good manners and it will make all the difference in the world so you can have that wonderful dog you’ve always dreamed of.
