Bred to point, flush and retrieve game, this soft-mouthed dog has stamina and energy to spare, making him a treasured hunting companion. Easy to train, chocolate Labs excel in field trials and in the obedience ring. Steady and reliable, they are remarkable search-and-rescue dogs, guide dogs to the blind and assistance dogs to the physically-challenged. Their intelligence, gentle ways and adaptability account for their popularity as family dogs. They consistently rank among the top most owned dog breeds according to the American Kennel Club registration statistics.
