General Physical Description

Labs are very active, strongly built dogs with good bone and substance. Their heads are broad with soft, intelligent eyes. They have a double coat: the undercoat being weather-resistant and the outer coat being short and dense. Their tails are totally unique being ‘otter’ like and their movement is straight and true both front and back, covering the ground freely.

An ideal Labrador has a kind, mild worried expression because they feel they are not fed enough. They are quite devoted to their stomachs. Their love of children is well known as is their love of water (and mud). A hallmark of the breed is their lovely manners and they are true ambassadors of the dog world.
