  19. The show type lab is generally much stockier and can get fat easily, whereas the working type lab likes running is energetic and has a much slimmer frame!

  20. No excuse for having a fat dog. "OMG it's his genes he's pre-disposed to be fat." True but there's a simple solution: DON'T FEED HIM. It's not like he can go to the corner store and buy some cookies himself. If you're finding that you're dog is getting fat feed it a reduced amount at specific times of the day, don't give it table scraps and exercise more. Just because a breed gains weight easier doesn't mean you should use that as an excuse to why you're a shitty owner. I'd be like if gingers whined and blamed the sun for why they roast after 20 minutes outside and complained about how lucky black people were.

  21. 1 key point left out…the difference of English Labradors vs. Labrador Retriever in terms of body is day & night. I don't recall too many overweight Labrador Retriever's, but most English Labs are significantly larger. There's probably at minimum 50-60lb difference between the 2.

  22. Considering the origins of the breed, its no surprise that they will still eat just about anything they can get in their mouths. On the Scottish island of Labrador, where their ancestors originated, they were used to living off nothing but scraps from their owners, so their iron guts evolved to process just about anything for energy.

  24. but heavy labs are very cute

  25. my lab is a little bit fat

  26. Even if it is genetic .. I think it is mostly because of the owners constantly feeding their labs.. labs love to eat and will go on eating if there is constant food supply… there should be a research on obese owners and their obese labs.

  27. Too bad my lab broke her legs twice so she can't run a block without hurting…

  28. People need scientists to figure this out? Feed them LESS. Numb nuts

  30. I am also possessed with a lab it also too fat so we cannot blame them

  31. I think the biggest problem with owning a labrador is how they can look so totally pathetic when they're begging for food. Even if the dog looks like a beer barrel with legs, It can still give a pretty convincing "They don't feed me" expression that's hard to ignore. It's difficult not to give in and throw them a treat.
    If you're in a household with 3 or 4 kids (Or have multiple friends visit with there kids a few days a week) the dog'll go around and successfully beg food out of all of them.
    It's hard to make a 4 or 5 year old kid understand that they mustn't thread some of whatever they're eating into your dog, They just want to make the lab happy, And food obviously does the trick.

    These days I tend to just keep an eye on quantity of EXTRA food my lab's getting and adjust one of her two regular daily meals to compensate.
