Baby Labradors


Baby Labradors are considered to be 18 months and under. When they are first born, they should reside with their mother, feeding from her for the first few weeks. It is important that during the first two days the baby gains from the mother’s milk the necessary protective antibodies that are supposed to guide them through the first six to ten weeks of their existence.



The puppies will be sleeping a lot for the first few weeks of their lives. After that, they will start to show an increased level of activity, but may still sleep for hours at end from time to time. In addition, because baby Labradors have a hard time regulating their own body temperature, a lot of precaution must be exercised in order to make sure they are not too hot or cold. Owners must also trim the puppy’s nails once every two to three weeks to avoid them scratching unnecessarily at others as well as themselves. Though they are needy, as long as care is being given to them, they will not require much else.

Also, even though Labrador puppies are easy to train, they have a hard time dealing with a collar and leash. Thus, when training a baby Labrador, one must ease them into the restrictions in order to successfully use the equipment. Besides these issues, baby Labradors are easy to manage while being extremely playful at the same time.
