The history of Labrador Retriever
Newfoundland is the real birthplace of Labrador Retriever. Because Labrador is very close to Newfoundland, it is named Labrador Retriever. In Newfoundland, it was domesticated as a hound, and later British sports enthusiasts noticed the value of the dog and brought it to the UK.
After it was introduced into Britain in the 19th century, it was trained as a shotgun dog, and now it is mostly trained as a guide dog and a guard dog for detecting drugs and explosives. Labrador retriever has always been at the top of the dog's IQ ranking and is currently the most popular and trustworthy family dog.
In the early 20th century, Scottish shooting became popular in Europe and America. Employing a Scotsman as a hunting ground keeper was a symbol of identity and prestige. Labrador Retriever was also introduced into the United States. In 1917, AKC registered the first Labrador Retriever.

Matters needing attention
