What could be a cuter mix than a Lab'Aire, a cross between an Airedale Terrier and a Labrador Retriever? It's like having a Lab with whiskers! They are an athletic breed and are talented at seeking and finding, so base activities for this dog around these natural characteristics. A good long walk or run is always an option and should be a regular activity, but use your imagination to offer your dog some variety in their day. They respond well to positive training techniques and also enjoy swimming, beachcombing, or river kayaking. Variety is the spice of life, and it is the same for our dogs. Doing the same old activities each day is boring! Shake the tree a little, do something different, and your dog will become a happy and contented pooch!
Whether riding in the car or taking a stroll down the center of town, your Lab'Aire Dog will attract attention. They are a friendly breed of dog and love to meet and greet. Encourage this as it allows them to develop their personality and become a confident dog. Training them in a public area is an excellent test for their powers of focus. Should they listen to you, or chase that flock of pesky birds? When they resist such temptation, they deserve a reward! Walk them to the library, let them rest in the shade while you choose your books, and let them help you carry them home in their backpack. Helping you makes them feel good, and the smile on their face will confirm that. A dog with a purpose is a happy tail wagger!
