  • The Labrador Retriever is almost waterproof and designed to remain in the water for hours. All Labs have webbed toes, a tail that works like a rudder, and a thick double-layer coat that blocks out water and keeps the pup warm.

  • While Labs are loved for hunting and fishing, they are also the most common dog put to work as a guide – around 70% of all guide dogs are labs.
