New Labralound Breed History

Because the New Labralound is a hybrid, you have to look at the histories of the parent breeds, the Labrador Retriever and the Newfoundland. The Labrador Retriever originated in Canada in the 1800s and was first known as Saint John’s Water Dog from the capital of Newfoundland. This large beautiful dog would help the fishermen catch the fish that escaped from their nets, giving them the name of Retriever while the name Labrador came from the Labrador Sea. According to their records, they were brought to England in the early 1800s and the Earl of Malmesbury was the first to own one and discovered their excellent hunting and retrieving abilities. They almost became extinct in the 1880s when Newfoundland laws made it illegal to own more than one of these dogs but was saved by the Malmesbury family and other breeders. They were accepted into the American Kennel Club in 1917 where they are still the number one breed of dog in America. The Newfoundland is also from Canada and is thought to have been brought there by European fishermen. Some say they are bred from the Great Pyrenees, others believe they are from the French Hound but most say they are relatives of the Tibetan Mastiff. Records date them back to the 1700s where they were used by the fishermen to help retrieve fish that got out of their nets. They are also known to have saved about 20 people from a ship wreck in 1919 by pulling their lifeboat to safety. In 1886, the American Kennel Club officially recognized the breed where it is now the 35th most popular breed of dog.

New Labralound Breed Maintenance

Your New Labralound needs to be brushed at least five or six times a week with a pin brush and metal comb. You should also use a deshedding tool during shedding season because they have a tendency to shed quite a bit at that time. To keep their ears clean, wipe them with a moistened cotton ball every week and check them for ear mites, wax, and redness or irritation as well. Trimming their toenails should be done when needed, which is usually about once a month. In addition, you should brush your dog’s teeth with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste made specially for dogs. This will help prevent cavities and other dental problems.

New Labralound Temperament

This breed is one of the most friendly dog breeds there are due to their parentage. They are known as one of the best family dogs because they are gentle and loving with children and other pets, show little to no aggression, and they are easy to train. However, you will need to keep them on a leash when you are outside if your dog is not in a fenced area because they will chase squirrels, rabbits, and other wildlife. They love to play with other canines so there should be no problems at the dog park or anywhere else you may see other dogs.

New Labralound Activity Requirements

The New Labralound needs a lot of activity to stay healthy and happy. They have a tendency to become overweight if they do not get enough exercise. It is best if your New Labralound gets at least an hour to an hour and a half of vigorous exercise on a daily basis. They are happy to be outdoors and love to chase the local wildlife so if you go to the park be prepared for that. They enjoy swimming, agility training, hiking, long walks, running, playing fetch, and any other activity that gets them out and moving around. If they do not get enough exercise, they can develop behavioral issues like barking and chewing on things.
