Labrador Retriever Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 3/4/2005
We just received our third Lab. The first one is no longer with us and the second is 8 years old. The first two was/is a female and the pup is a male. The pup doesn't seam to be as hyper as the other two,when they were puppies. He's really laid back. Is this a male/female trait? Will the laid backness hinder trainability for basic obiedence or for hunting? Thank You John

3/4/05 It isn't a male / female trait. However, it could be a trait in his bloodline. Some bloodlines are just laid back dogs. It shouldn't be a problem when it comes to learning but, it could become a problem if the natural instints of the dog are not arroused. There are alot of breeders out there. Most breed to better the breed, but there's those that breed for other reasons. Sometimes, the animals loose. Do you know what kind of dogs are in his line? How old is the pup? Have you started training him basic comands? Hunting basics, and gun fired? I didn't really help you. You can't really say with out knowing more. Karen Karen
