1. CBD Helps Stressed Out Labradors, Including Those With Separation Anxiety or Noise Anxiety
CBD oil naturally helps reduce inflammation in all parts of the body. The same endocannabinoid receptors that work together to relieve anxiety also target areas in the body experiencing pain due to inflammation, damaged nerves, and injury.
Our team was fortunate to be consulted on the creation of the Cannanine brand of CBD oil for dogs. Unlike most CBD oils, Cannanine is 100% THC free. And like all of our products, every purchase provides healthy meals for shelter dogs.
The changing legality of cannabis is hard to keep track of, but when it comes to CBD oil from hemp, it’s easy. Unlike marijuana, hemp is legal in all 50 states. 1 As a hemp product, that means CBD oil is legal, too. Medical marijuana is legal in about half of states, but with negligible amounts THC, those rules don’t apply to hemp. It’s perfectly legal to buy and possess CBD oil as long as it’s obtained from hemp and has less than .3% THC.
The Labrador Retriever requires moderate exercise consisting of a couple walks a day or a good high intensity game of fetch. They do well in the country and also thrive in urban settings. A Labrador Retriever’s coat is short and dense. They have what is known as a double coat, the coat you see and a dense undercoat designed to keep them warm while retrieving in icy waters. While the CKC only has one breed standard for the Labrador Retriever, there are three distinct versions of the breed. The conformation dog is the ones who enter the shows and are graded on how close their appearance conforms to the breed standards. These Labrador Retrievers tend to be shorter, and thicker than the other versions. The American Labrador Retriever has longer legs and is taller. They tend to be thinner and leaner and thus more athletic. They also tend to have snouts which are longer and better suited for picking up larger birds such as geese in the field. The third version we call a utility Labrador Retriever. This is a Lab who is in between the Conformation and the American.
There are currently 3 recognized colors of Labrador Retriever. They are Black, Yellow and Chocolate. So when a Lab is registered it must be registered as one of the three recognized colors. Each color has a variation and some of the variations come about in different ways. First there is a dilute gene. If both parents carry the dilute gene then the color of the Lab puppies are diluted. So black puppies would appear charcoal color and chocolate lab puppies would appear Silver. The yellow Lab can appear to be Fox Red, white, a yellow color or somewhere in between. Regardless whether or not the dilute gene is present, your Labrador Retriever will be registered as Black, Yellow or Chocolate. At the time of writing this no other colors are recognized. There has been some myths in the past that certain colors are smarter, not as smart, hyper, calmer, etc. This is not the case. The Labrador Retriever’s coat color Fir has no bearing over their intelligence.
Labrador Retriever Puppies
For the most part, when someone begins their search for a Lab puppy they look close to home. With our busy schedules not too many people want to drive a great distance to pick up their puppy. I understand that, and if you can find a quality Labrador Retriever puppy close to home that’s great! But don’t make driving distance the first criteria when looking for a puppy. You need to establish some parameters regarding the quality of the Lab you buy. After all you don’t want a conveniently close puppy with health problems, no pedigree, no breeder support and so on. So first look for a very good breeder. One who breeds to advance the genetics of the breed with every litter they have. One who has more than a guarantee on hips, elbows and eyes but also includes major organs. Once you determine what a good breeder looks like and what a healthy puppy would look like then begin to search for that starting in your area. Remember that there may not be any reputable breeders near you. If there isn’t, you have to decide if you would rather purchase a nearby puppy whose health may not be something the breeder is willing to stand behind, or do you want to choose the best bred puppy available. Remember, this one time pick up of your new little buddy will be the only trip you make to get him/her. They may live to be 15 years old if you find a well bred Lab puppy, the drive to pick her up will be worth it in quality.
Finding a Labrador Retriever Puppy
The Canadian Kennel Club Standards for the Labrador Retriever are for males: 22.5 to 24.5 inches tall at the shoulders and weigh between 60 and 75 pounds. The females are: 21.5 to 23.5 at the shoulders and weigh between 55 and 70 pounds. Their temperament is one of “desires to please” especially for food, and they will retrieve, especially in water which they love, until your arm is too sore to throw the ball.
In general, veterinary chemotherapy drugs are much better today than they were a few years ago, and cause far fewer side effects than human chemotherapy drugs.
