Most Labrador owners can agree that they are the perfect family pet – their amazing looks combined with their happy personality is what makes them so attractive. However, these two traits are not enough. In order to truly get the best out of your Labrador and provide them with a happy life, you need to put in a lot of work.
But don’t let that discourage you. Good things in life are worth the effort, and no one can deny that Labradors with their fluffy coat and wagging tail are something to look forward to every day.
Still, many owners found out the hard way that Labradors are quite different from other breeds. They have a strong and unique personality which can take some time for you to get used to.
Fortunately, you can train your Labrador in a controlled environment, free of stress and health risks, while still having lots of fun. Trinny (contact Trinny here) can help you train your Labrador to be well-behaved and listen to all your commands, while still getting enough psychological stimulation and physical exercise which will only make your Labrador happier and healthier.
And failing to properly train your Labrador can result in a world of frustration – just ask any Labrador owner and they will immediately tell you they’ve been “through hell and back”.
Even experienced dog owners who’ve
previously trained other breeds can agree that most of the time the same rules
don’t apply to Labradors. This leads to unnecessary frustration, especially
when you expected a cheerful and well-behaved dog and you end up with a
stubborn and annoying one.
Failing to get proper training while your Labrador is still a pup can result in a variety of behavioral issues, such as:
- Urinating where they are not allowed to, even when strictly forbidden and using training pads.
- Chewing shoes, toys, rugs, dog mattresses, and even kitchen cabinets.
- Stealing food.
- Digging up plants in your garden.
- Chasing neighborhood squirrels and cats and running away.
- Constantly asking for attention.
- Going through your garbage and potentially getting into danger, like cutting their paws or mouth.
The list goes on, these are just some of the most commonly reported problems with young Labrador pups.
Even though all of this might sound amusing for owners of other breeds, Labrador owners will know exactly the kinds of frustration you get on a daily basis. And after a while, having a Labrador might seem like it’s more of a problem than a joy. That’s why it’s extremely important to get proper dog training from Trinny.
Many Labrador owners have spent countless hours searching for a solution when faced with such a situation, but the truth is, Labrador pups are difficult. You can spend all the time you want reading through books and online articles, but having one-on-one Labrador training with Trinny will not only save you time, it will also provide your dog with a fun and rewarding experience.
In the end, a happier and more fulfilled Labrador means you can now spend time with it without any frustration or worries, just cuddles and playing around.
