The Labrador Retriever (also Labrador, or Lab for short) is one of several kinds of retriever, a type of gun dog and belong to the Gun dog group. A breed characteristic is webbed paws for swimming, useful for the breed's original purpose of retrieving fishing nets. The Lab is the most popular breed of dog by registered ownership in Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States (since 1991). It is also one of the most popular assistance dog breeds in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States and many other countries, as well as being widely used by police and other official bodies for their detection and working abilities. Typically, Labrador Retrievers are athletic and love to swim, play catch and retrieve games, are good with young children, elderly, and for protection.

They is one of many breeds of the retriever hunting type. Extremely loyal and intelligent, Labradors are one the most popular pet breeds in numerous countries, including the United States. While they still serve the purpose for which they were initially bred, which is retrieving small downed waterfowl, they are also adept at a number of other jobs including leading the blind, acting as hearing dogs, and police and military work. Their kind nature, obedience, and knack for getting along with children also gives them the reputation of being the ideal pet. They are low maintenance but do shed moderate and seasonal.
