The most popular breed of dog in the world, the Labrador Retriever (Lab) is known worldwide as a loyal companion and friend. They are very intelligent dogs with a strong sense of loyalty. However, they have been known to bite if provoked or cornered. The Labrador Retriever is one of the most popular breeds because it requires little training and obedience skills to train them well enough to do their job properly. They are usually very obedient and friendly towards humans. They are great companions for children and adults alike.
There are two types of Labradors: the Standard or Toy type, which is smaller than other breeds, and the Large Breed or Show type, which is larger than other breeds. There are many different colors that can be found in both types of Labradors. The Labrador Retriever breed originated from Ireland where they were used as hunting dogs since ancient times. Today, there are over 100 recognized breeds of Labradors. The standard Labrador Retriever is a medium sized dog weighing between 25 – 35 pounds.
Their height ranges from 16 inches to 20 inches tall at the withers and weigh between 40 – 55 pounds.
Rottweilers are a large breed of dog that stands out among all other breeds due to their size and strength. They are known to be very intelligent, and although they can be friendly, they often tend to intimidate a lot of people because of their size. This factor makes training them to obey orders harder than it is for smaller dogs. However, with the right amount of patience and dedication, it can be done.
The rottweiler lab mix breed is a mix between a rottweiler and a Labrador Retriever. Rottweilers are breeds that were originally bred in Germany. Their ancestors can be traced all the way back to Roman times. They were bred as herding dogs, and their huge size and strength easily allowed them to control larger herd animals. Through generations of breeding, their appearance became more muscular and bulky.
