Johnstown Pennsylvania Dog Kennel
In one Johnstown Pennsylvania dogthere is a guy that is a freak for Labrador Retrievers. He was telling me the other day that he modern Labrador Retriever is among the oldest of the modern "recognized" breeds; according to the American Club, pedigrees exist back to 1878. The Club recognized the Lab in 1903. The first registration of Labradors by the AKC was in 1917; many English were imported post World War I and these formed the foundation of the American variety. Labradors are a well-balanced and remarkably versatile breed, adaptable to a wide range of functions as well as making very good pets. As a rule they are not excessively prone to territorialism, pining, insecurity, aggression, destructiveness, hypersensitivity, or other difficult traits which manifest in a variety of breeds. Labradors have a reputation as a very mellow breed and an excellent family dog (including a good reputation with children of all ages), but some lines (particularly those that have continued to be bred specifically for their skills at working in the field rather than for their appearance) are particularly fast and athletic. Their fun-loving boisterousness and lack of fear can result in mischief, and may require training and firm handling at times to ensure it does not get out of hand. Most Labs enjoy retrieving a ball endlessly and other forms of activity (such as dog agility or fly ball), are considerably " and fun" oriented, very trainable and open minded to new things, and thrive on human attention and interaction, which they find hard to get enough of. The steady temperament of Labs and their ability to learn quickly make them an ideal breed for assistance .
