17 Reasons Labradors Make Great Pets

Labs make great pets, and in this article, I dive into the reasons why Lab owners love their dogs so much and why they would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

Just as no two people are the same, no two Labradors are exactly the same. While each of them is unique, there are still many common breed traits that are typical of Labradors.

More wonderful traits are their personality as well as their distinctive cuddly looks. Labradors are popular family members with strong character.

#1 You don’t judge

Do you like dancing in your underwear in your living room? Do you only listen to retro 80s music? Do you like to dress up and dress up even when you don't have to go anywhere?

Your family may think you're freaky and crazy. I can guarantee you that your Labrador will not do this. He doesn't care what you look like, as long as you give him attention, he won't judge your character or your looks. He just loves you because you are here.

#2 Labradors listen

How many times can you tell someone about your day and in return you don't have to listen to their comments and views? If you're the type of person who needs to get your ideas out loud and discuss them with yourself, you'll find the perfect listener in a Labrador.

Labradors love human company, so they always look at you when you're talking. You often have a "concentrated" looking facial expression and of course, don't object.

#3 They give comfort

Whatever the reason for their reactions, many Labradors can sense when you're not feeling well.

Many teenagers or newly widowed women report that Labradors in particular help them with their mood swings. They can be happy dogs that jump around wildly. But they notice when you're not feeling well. They will then often put their head on your lap and get a pat. And petting animals calm and improves mood. And so he offers you his (hairy) shoulder to lean on.
