Why are Labrador Retrievers in shelters?

According to the AKC, Labrador Retrievers are the #1 reproduced dog in the US; thus, they are the most prevalent breed mix in shelters.

The #1 reason that Labs are in shelters is LACK OF OWNER COMMITMENT.

Many owners do not realize that these dogs need direction and training to compensate for their HIGH ENERGY LEVELS. They often don’t realize that their Labs do not fully mature until approximately 2-3 years of age.

Labradors have a reputation for being family friendly, laid back dogs. However, owning a Labrador requires patience, training, exercise and commitment in order to bring out these wonderful qualities.
