My son has a black lab about 7 years old. He is a wonderful dog but he wags his tail so vigorously that it bleeds from whipping against wall corner, doors, etc.  She is a house dog.  Therefore she put bloodstains on the wall etc. etc. as her tail bleeds.  It there a solution to this such as a tail cover?  This problem is very anoying to visitors.

I have a 7 year old black lab, and an 18 month old black lab, both purebreads.  Chayce is a male, he is the older one, and Jetta, she is a girl, the younger one.  Chayce is well trained by my Dad, and Jetta is too, but no matter what I cant get Jetta to stop killing cats, etc. She will pick up raodkill, and drag it in our yard, she will pick up a cat, and bring is to us, I know she loves retrieving, and all that stuff, but how can we get her to stop bring dead stuff to us?

Well the female is old enough but I've never even heard of a male trying to breed that young!! He may try to breed but won't be too successful. Males are mature at 6 months of age. If the female goes into heat and you want to postpone breeding you will have to 1.pen the dogs up or 2.get her a doggy pad so he can't get to her or 3. go to jefferspet.com and get a spray that will cover up the smell she emits that attracts the males during this time. (Jeffers has pads too) Good luck!

When my chocolate labrador was 7 weeks old he tried to mate with another male puppy. For him it was just a dominance issue. When my female came into her first heat he was only four months old and tried to mate, but wasn't successful. I would have moved the female if i would have though he was mature to breed. When she came into her 2nd heat she was about 14 months and he was 11 months. This time she bred, is this to young for a female labrador to breed??

My chocolate lab is 3 yrs old. She has been in heat for the past 15 days but shows no sign of wanting to breed. I took her to the vet today and he did a smear and said that by the cells she doesn't look like she is in heat at all. Why is this and why did she not show signs of wanting to mate?

I have a 2 year old black lab that likes to growl. If he is laying down and someone touches him he growls. I also have a 5 yr old son and the dog will growl at him but he shows no aggression. He does not raise his hair or show his teeth. I have never seen a lab act like this before.  Any suggestions to help................

I have a nine month old Red Lab Puppy, she is just in her first heat.  I also have a male black Lab that I will be breeding her with. He is almost 2 years old. They are both certified and champions. My question is, after she has her second heat, and they get together, (I have them seperated now.)How long will her pregnancy last?  I have heard several stories. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
