The Labrador Retriever, originally hailing from Newfoundland, is a medium sized dog who is athletic, outgoing, and eager to please. The Lab’s devotion and playfulness have made him the number one choice for American families for decades. The Labrador Retriever is bred in three colors: yellow, black, and chocolate. Great with kids, Labs also work well alongside hunters and law enforcement officers, and as therapy and service animals.
Labrador Retriever Dog Collars
Labrador Retrievers do well in leather or synthetic collars, and require a sturdy lead with solid hardware. Waterproof collars may be a good idea for a Lab who spends much of his time as a wet dog. The breed’s average neck size is 18” – 24”. See our Sport Dog Collars and Outdoor Collars for collar ideas for Labs.
