    DefaultLab neck rolls

    I have been noticing some labs have the neck skin rolls and some dont...They look like 2 rolls of skin and fur that run straight up and down from the dogs chin to almost the chest. My yellow lab has them but my black lab doesnt. Why do some labs have them and others dont...and is it just part of the breed??? None of my huskies have neck rolls.
    Thanks

    Puff YF (field line) has them.

    I don't recall if Bess BF (bench line) had them or not. If she did, I think they weren't as prominent as Puff's.

    If shoulders are a bit upright that can cause rolls, but so can extra poundage. I also think too much muscling in the front end as compared to the rear can cause it (as in very hard runners/jumpers like agility dogs), but that's just an observation of my own crew.

    I dont agree with the poundage theory.. after looking at both my labs again...indeed both of them have the rolls...my black lab is definatly not on the heavy side and neither is my yellow....would still love to hear why labs have this!!

    Saba's neck rolls are pretty big - I looked at one of his baby photos and I saw the beginings of them early on.
    He looks like a turkey.. sort of...
