Labrador Retriever

The Labrador is a retrieving gun dog of medium size, with a dense, water-resistant coat, an "otter" tail, and a clean-cut head with a "kind" expression.  The first Labradors arrived in England from Newfoundland aboard fishing boats early in the 19th century, and imports to America began in the early 1900's.  Labrador temperament is outgoing, indulgent with peers, human-oriented and tractable.  Labradors can be found in guide and assistance dog programs, and substance detection and search and rescue work.  Since 1992, the Labrador Retriever has headed the list as the most popular breed in the U.S.

Labrador Retriever is a type of gun dog that retrieves game for a hunter. Generally gun dogs are divided into three major classifications: retrievers, flushing spaniels, and pointing breeds. Retrievers were bred primarily to retrieve birds or other prey and return them to the hunter without damage; retrievers are distinguished in that nonslip retrieval is their primary function. As a result, retriever breeds are bred for soft mouths and a great willingness to please, learn, and obey. 

Spinone Italiano is recognized as a versatile hunting dog.  NAVHDA (North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association) defines the “versatile hunting dog” as one that is bred and trained to dependably hunt and point game, and both track and retrieve on land or water. The versatile breeds were developed to give hunters one dog to use on a variety of game in a variety of environments, as opposed to having a kennel full of “specialty” dogs bred for one type of hunt or skill. Whereas many hunters expand breed purposes by hunting upland birds with retrievers or using their flushing dogs to retrieve ducks, the Italian Spinoni are trained for land and water work intentionally and simultaneously.



Dog shows (conformation events) are intended to evaluate breeding stock. The size of these events ranges from large all-breed shows, with over 3,000 dogs entered, to small local specialty club shows, featuring a specific breed. The dog’s conformation (overall appearance and structure), is an indication of the dog's ability to produce quality puppies.


Always keep training.
