Intellectual load for Labrador
In addition to physical exertion, the dog must be loaded intellectually. Often, dog owners forget about this or do not know and therefore the whole walk is mainly carried out in a standard way: running around in a dog party, sniffing the grass, etc. Of course, running after a ball or a stick is very fun and healthy, but if the dog does not receive mental exertion, then this can be fraught. Labrador is one of such breeds of dogs that are very smart and if their intelligence is not developed, then you can face such problems as disobedience, defeating in an apartment, spoiling things.
The dog, remaining alone, begins to get bored and this can lead to undesirable behavior on its part. Most Labradors, who only walk and run around among their relatives, do not spend even half of their energy. But if you start practicing with them – 15 minutes of training is enough to tire the dog.
Intellectual loadings are daily training, working out the commands: “sit”, “lie down”, “stand” and other teams from early onset. Practice walking around with your dog. If the dog knows the commands, train him to perform them well (clearly, quickly). Try learning something new. Dogs that are constantly engaged in – later give intelligent offspring, puppies are more capable of learning. There are also many intellectual toys for dogs that perfectly develop the mind and ingenuity. Dogs that are daily practiced are calmer and more obedient than those that are practiced from time to time.
It is very hard to care for a bunch of puppies, but it is even harder to attach them. Labrador puppies grow very quickly, it happens that half a year they stay up in the “visiting nurse”. It is necessary to invest not only in litter, in exhibitions, but also in advertising. We must be prepared for the fact that selling puppies – your responsibility for them does not end there. You will be asked questions on feeding and education, on training, sores.
And of course, do not expect to get a lot of money from puppies. This is a common myth. If there will be a profit from the sale of Labrador puppies, it is not so big. To get at least some income – you need to invest enough money in the cultivation, veterinary services, high-quality food and advertising. Only a caesarean section (in which case) can turn your labrador’s droppings into gold.
