Life Stages For all stages of your Labrador Friend's life - pop in here to discuss your crocopop, terrible teen or golden oldie!

Puppies!

Do you have a new puppy? Has your puppy got a bit more ‘bite’ than you’d bargained for? Are you feeling the puppy blues? You've come to the right place! Our new little Labrador Friends might not quite live up to our expectations, and that can be hard! We'll help guide you through the reality that is new puppy parenthood.

Your Labrador Friend might be slowing down, sprouting a few more grey hairs on their chin, but by this stage, they are firmly cemented in your heart and home. Let's spread the love for the seniors and give those new puppy parents a taste of the wonderful journey that is yet to come.

Wet Noses and Bright Eyes Come here for all your health-related questions and answers. From tick and flea treatments to coping after surgery, you'll find it all here.

Feeling Ruff?

Is your dog feeling under the weather? We're not vets here, but can provide sympathy and support, and maybe the voice of experience if we've gone through a similar thing with our own Labrador Friend.
