Labrador Retriever - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I guess I should have been more specific. Has anyone had this type of dog? Good experience / bad? Do they shed (sp?) a lot? Are they extraordinarily needy or could they deal with me being gone 10 hours before I can come back?

I will let the real dog people get into the life style questions, but I have known a lot of people who have had them. If I were to get a dog (not likely) it would be a lab. I love their personality, they seem very flexible to new situations (new people around, going somewhere other than home) and the ones I have known are great with kids.

a lab is an active dog who needs to be exercised a lot. 10 hours is to long. no active dog should really be left alone for that amount of time during the day. dont get a dog.

Well, being gone all day doesn't matter anymore. Should I still not get a job?

Labs shed alot and they need more exercize than you can give. I think it would be best to not get a dog at this point in your life. You are to young wait untill you settle down and have more time for it.
Very cool dogs though

Don't they have those dog foster homes where you rescue a dog and try to place it? I suggest that's what Chris does at least one time to see if he is ready for a dog. I love to play with dogs and think they are great, but I also know I don't want to own one and I know it wouldn't be fair to the dog if I did. You know how some people love being an aunt or uncle, but know they don't want a kid of their own. That's me with dogs.

We have a yellow lab and like everyone has already said on the board, they are full of energy and do shed like crazy - especially during the summer. It doesn't how much we sweep the floors - within hours there is yellow hair everywhere. She bounces off the wall, if we don't take to her to the dog park or on a walk everyday.
If you do get a lab, are you going to get a puppy or adopt an older one? If you get a puppy, be prepared for a lot of work and making sure that you are going to be at the house quite a bit. Also, depending on if you plan on crate training the dog, get ready to wake up in the middle of the night to take the puppy oustide to go to the bathroom. Also, as you probably know - labs are chewers, especially as puppies. When we got our lab, she shredded our brand new Pottery Barn L shaped couch - to the point where you could literally crawl inside it. She shredded the hot tub cover, the crowne molding, and even chewed a hole through the drywall. Labs take a lot of work and energy, but at the same time, I wouldn't trade her for any other dog. She is now five years old and is well behaved now - but is still full of energy and bounces off the wall if she doesn't get her exercise. Make sure you do a lot of research not only on the type of dog and personality, but also health issues you need to be aware of, etc.

Now that you asked, i was thinking of adopting an older one, because un-loved dogs make me sad...

And to Bouncer, my family has always had a minimum of two dogs, but never a lab.

I got a dalmation when I was 3. I had to start taking full time care of him when I was 5-6 ish. That means walk, feeding, all that good stuff. Took him to the vet later in his life and I was the one who had to take him to get him put down when things got really bad.

My Mom has a cocker spaniel poodle who we all take care of, but now I haven't been doing as much because of work. Finally, we 'rescued' a Beagle when I was 16. My brother and I shared the responsibility for him, but he died a few months ago. :(

You walked a dalmation when you were 5 or 6? I call Bull Shit.
Also dogs do need to be walked but a dog like a dalmation and lab need to run
