If your dog could talk what questions do you think they would ask you most often? Every dog and dog breed is a little bit different, but some traits seem to be universal for a specific breed like the Labrador Retriever. We can think of one question that all Labs would constantly be asking their owners.
We’ve raised 3 purebred Labrador Retriever puppies in training and we are currently raising our fourth. We’ve probably also puppy sat 100+ Labs during our time as guide dog puppy raisers.
I’d have to say after being around all of those Labs over these past 7 years this statement is probably true 99.9% of the time.
A Labs Only Question…
What do you guys think? Have you raised Labrador Retrievers? Is this their only question? Or perhaps there’s a little more to my Lab puppies in training: Stetson, Derby, Dublin, and Adelle.
Okay, okay…so maybe that’s not the only question. If you had to ask me it is by far number 1 on the list, but if you had to have a top 5 list for Labrador Retrievers questions they would be:
Top 5 Questions From A Lab
1. How Long Til My Next Meal?
2. Can I have a treat?
3. Where is my tennis ball?
4. When is my next walk?
5. Where’s the nearest lake/pool?
I’m speculating a little here as I’ve yet to have a Lab who loves to swim. Although many of my friends Labs as well as Labs I’ve puppy sat were definite water dogs. I’m not too sure about Adelle yet, but she does like sleeping with her head in the water bowl…we’ll see.
Second, our puppies in training aren’t allowed to have tennis balls because they can become obsessed (or so they tell us). Once again I’m speculating, but seeing how much my pup’s love their other toys I could very well see them obsessing over a tennis ball.
So that’s the list. Do you have a dog or puppy? If they could speak what do you think their top 5 questions would be? Tell us about it in the comment section below.
