Black Labrador Retriever Care
My name is Sam, I am a 4 year old Black Labrador retriever,this is me in this picture of me begging for someone to play in the snow with me.
I am from Wellington, New Zealand and I came over to Nashville, Tn in March 2009. After a very long flight leaving summer I was thrown into late winter, I didn't have my right coat with me!. It was a difficult time for me at first as I stayed with some cousins for the first month and was involved in a car accident and it has taken me a long time to gain enough courage to get back in the car again. But I love it now as we go to the park or walks when I go for a ride in the car and in the summer I go for swims in the River, I love to swim and retrieve sticks or balls.
But after a few months and getting back into a routine life is good as ever and I enjoying living in the USA, there are a few new creatures I like to chase like squirrels. I had never played in snow before and it's slippery but I enjoy the snowball fights they are great.There are a few new things I have to get use to but I can adapt to most changes as long as my master is close by me.
I am going to help you with Black Labrador Retriever Care

BLACK LABRADOR RETRIEVER CARE
General Labrador Care: Comb in addition to Brush On a regular basis, Bathe Occasionally
Labradors are very good natured pets that are also people-oriented and love being a part of the family. They are also very good with kids and generally, Labrador care will not be a great deal of a problem. However, there are still certain factors that influence how to take care of the Labrador and they comprise realizing that the Labrador needs until it reaches three years of age before attaining adulthood and will therefore have a prolonged puppyhood. This is in stark difference to other breeds that mature earlier at two years of age.
Don’t Let It Become Overweight
An important thought in general Labrador care is to keep its weight down and not let it put on spare pounds which would build it prone to contracting fitness troubles such as heart trouble as well as arthritis. You must feed it healthful food and give it an special luxury so that it gets variety as well as healthy food intakes that are essential to having a healthy pet and also gives its coat shine, if fed correctly.
You needs to also learn the various health troubles associated with the Labrador such as hip and elbow dysplasia and also eye disorders. Grooming is an essential part of Labrador care that would need regular combing as well as giving it a bath only occasionally and that too, only at what time it begins to give off an aroma. Use a high-quality dog shampoo that has flea guard properties and bear in mind that the Labrador does not shed heavily so that combing it with a slicker brush every week should suffice to maintain it looking clean. Also check its eyes, ears and paws for signs of trouble or for parasite infestation.
For first-rate Labrador care, usually it must have its nails cut at least one time a month so that it is protected from foot troubles and for this you may use a pair of nail trimmers. As it can often be rather stubborn, treat your Labrador with determination as well as be consistent with it, particularly when training it and it should be taught not to bark or chew possessions for which it has a penchant. You can maintain the Labrador indoors or leave it out in the backyard and since it is not a hyper-active animal will be happy in either surrounding.
Often, you may see some symptoms in a dog that may arouse suspicions and one would be well recommended to take action early if one suspects something amiss with one’s Labrador. You may be amazed to learn that the finest food for your Labrador is real food like as chicken and turkey as well as beef along with plenty of fresh raw vegetables and fruits and also brown rice and some oatmeal. And, for good Labrador care, one may also include yogurt, eggs as well as cottage cheese to its diet and if you find cooking for your Labrador a chore, at least feed it human-grade commercial food of premium quality.
One chooses and selects a good quality vet for the Labrador dependent on if you wants to give one’s pet allopathic or holistic treatment. You may prefer giving your pet drugs, medications as well as chemicals or opt for finding preventive cures that would help make the immune system of the pet and usually, in Labrador care; a holistic vet would promote wellness of the pet from within and address health concerns facing the Labrador.
