    Without plenty of physical stimulation and social interaction, Labs will bark more than normal, possibly to excess, due to their pent-up energy. Yes and No. If you live in a house with a pool or have a water body near your home, your family will be able to enjoy this breed to its full potential (Labs are water dogs). Labrador Retriever is a versatile breed of dog. Labradors do well with both sole owners or as a part of a family and get on well with the elderly, the children, cats, and other pets. Yes. Labradors make excellent companions, as well as assistance dogs. They are outgoing, gentle, and easy to train. Just like most dog breeds, Labs do bark and for a variety of alternative reasons. Labradors are capable of barking a lot if they are bored and under-exercised. Labs can be a good choice as family dogs. Weekly grooming – brushing the topcoat, combing the undercoat, and massaging during baths will help keep hair out of your home. No. Labrador Retrievers do shed a lot! Labradors have short hair, but they have a double coat – an external layer that is long and shiny and an inner layer that is much finer to keep them warm and dry (labs are water dogs). A Labrador bitch will generally blow her coat (shed heavily) 2 times a year with her heat cycle. However, they are smart dogs and can be easily trained to bark less.
