More than two decades ago, the Labrador Retriever plonked itself firmly in the #1 spot for most popular domestic dogs in the US and still hasn’t moved – although he’s been pipped at the post in Australia by the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. It doesn’t take a genius to see why – the Labrador Retriever is gentle, loyal, intelligent and family friendly. Who doesn’t love a Lab? Meanwhile, back in the Lab lab at Royal Canin, there’s concern for the fact that Labrador Retrievers have a tendency to gain weight. If a Labrador puppy sprouts too fast, his weight can outpace the development of his skeleton, which can cause all sorts of joint and muscle troubles.
