I think most of you would agree that Labradors and Golden Retrievers are the most popular dogs in the world. And it’s not hard to see why, they’re gorgeous, friendly and loveable – what more could you want?!
These fun-loving and free-spirited creatures certainly know how to put a smile on the faces of all who cross their path. But what is it about them that gets us all giddy in their presence? I think it’s because they’re a cross between being highly intelligent creatures but with an adorably goofy personality.
Originating in Newfoundland, they were first bred to help fishermen and hunters retrieve their nets and catch. Now, Labradors are more commonly used as guide-dogs and comfort animals for those with disabilities.
Labradors and Golden Retrievers are very similar, but there are some slight differences
Golden retrievers differ between British, American and Canadian types. They’re both retrievers which meant they were meant for hunting and work. Goldens were gentlemen’s hunting dogs that also made lovely house pets when they weren’t hunting. Labradors are more stubborn but with a better work ethic.
They’re all very high-energy creatures that need a lot of exercise. But they’re also very cuddly creatures that love the interaction and human companionship.
