    DefaultMy very first puppy!!!!

    Hello my name is Melody. This is my first time raising a puppy!! I do have a dog(my first dog)that I adopted a couple years back. So not totally a beginner but loving all the stuff I have been learning. Puppies are sooo different than a full grown dog. I researched quite a bit and came across a breeder that uses his dogs to duck hunt. My new puppy is a "British" yellow labrador and her name is Hunter

    I have never heard of a "British" Lab. What exactly does that mean?

    Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.

    Many experts group Labradors into American and British types. The American type usually appears taller and rangier. While the British has a thicker body shorter legs and a heavier coat, usually seen in the show ring. Both types exist on either side of Atlantic ocean. Their personalities display differences. British tends to be calmer, quieter and much more laid back than the hard driven American labrador. The difference stems from the different ways in which field trials are conducted in the two nations.

    You will find that the majority of Lab people refer to the dogs as either pet, field, show/bench or BYB bred. Some will describe their dog as an "English" bred/style but if your dog was not born in England, it is not English and or British. You will also find many here with field lines who will disagree with your assessment on the temperament differences. Not picking a fight, just giving you a heads up. We are a passionate group about our dogs, have very strong opinions on the variety of looks, temperaments, drives and certainly educating ourselves on every aspect of our breed.
