Stockton’s Silver, Polar and Fox Red Labs

 
 

Silver Labs are pure breed AKC registered Labrador Retrievers. The unique Silver color (a diluted Chocolate gene) which is pewter in color, gives our labs a splash of color that will make your lab stand out from the rest.


Polar Labs are white labs, AKC registered.  The white colored labs are the lightest colored yellow lab.  Their coats are cream to white in color and are very stunning.   As puppy’s they look like polar bears.   They will stop people in their tracks.  Our Polar Labs all come from titled  blood lines.


Fox Red Labs are Red labs, AKC registered.  Fox Red Labs are yellow labs that display the darkest color of the yellow spectrum.  They are red in color, and very beautiful.  Our linage of Fox Red Labs come from titled blood lines. 


The Labrador retriever is one of the most popular and easily identifiable dogs in the world. The gentle, intelligent and family-friendly Labrador Retriever is a versatile hunting breed. Because of his aptitude to please his owner they excel as guide dogs for the blind, as part of search-and-rescue teams or in narcotics detection with law enforcement.


The dog is reasonably large, standing at about two feet at the shoulders and with an extremely heavy and muscular body. Labs have floppy ears, longish noses, long legs relative to their stocky bodies. They come in three basic color variations--chocolate, black, and yellow--with a wide variety of shades and hues within those basic colors, anywhere from a silver, charcoal, fox like red to a nearly-white shade of lemon.


History

A Look Back at Labrador Retrievers, originally from Newfoundland, they were initially used in work alongside fisherman, helping to pull in nets and catch fish that escaped from fishing lines. These early purposes for the dog are the most likely reason for the waterproof coat, rudder-like tail, high endurance, and love of swimming seen in the Labradors of today.

In the late nineteenth century, however, some of the Dogs were brought to land and trained as gun dogs for aristocratic hunting and retrieving. From this point on in the breed’s history, "Labs," as they are affectionately called, were bred primarily to perform as an efficient retriever of game, with a stable temperament suitable for a variety of activities beyond hunting


Temperament

True Labrador Retriever temperament is the hallmark of the breed.. The ideal disposition is one of a kindly, outgoing, tractable nature, eager to please and non-aggressive towards man or animal. The Labrador has much that appeals to people; his gentle ways, intelligence and adaptability make him an ideal dog


Grooming

The Labrador Retriever's waterproof coat is designed to self-clean in several important ways, which minimizes your responsibility for grooming to some extent.
The Lab's hard outer coat and undercoat should be brushed about once a week in order to remove any dead hair and to alleviate shedding.


Exercise

These dogs are eager to please, and enjoy having jobs to keep them busy and gain approval. Creating fun games or interesting things for your dog to do will keep them entertained and prevent them from becoming bored. 


Training

Retrievers are known for being an easy breed to train. They are excited to learn, eager to please, and their high intelligence allows them to learn behaviors and tricks quickly. Retrievers have been trained to work with Police to locate drugs, excel in agility training and enjoy learning how to perform tricks.  Retrievers are popular candidates for training to become aid dogs. Their quick minds make them ideal for guiding the blind, and the training for this job begins when they are puppies. They can also be trained to be rescue dogs, drug dogs and dogs for the blind and handicap.
