  1. #1

    Default SIX Specific body types of Labrador Retriever

    The Labrador Retriever

    "English" versus "American" Labrador?
    "Show" Labrador versus "Field Trial" Labrador?

    The six different body types of Labradors
    1 - Holton Classic
    2 - Brittany
    3 - Donalbain
    4 - Mardas
    5 - Whitmore
    6 - Lawnwood

    From "LabradorNet" owned by Jack Vanderwyk

    Copy and past this address into your webbrowser
    http://labradornet.com/index_e.html

    THEN

    For several pictures of each body type.....
    CLICK on "Labs in Detail" button located in the menu on left side of the page.

    THEN

    Scroll down to and click on the webpage link "Labrador Typecasting" just above the black and white picture of the yellow Labrador.

    GUESS WHAT???? They are all Labrador Retrievers!!!!

    This guy has tons of information on Labrador Retrievers to share with all of us. I have been learning from this guy for over 4 years now.

    ENJOY - Michael Watson

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    Exactly-lots of stuff is pretty hokey. You can also send in a pedigree of a dog and he'll tell if you should buy it and all about the kennel. Interesting he recognizes many lesser kennels but does not recognize Candlewoods. Many of his papers are his opinion and ramblings. He completely ignores any great field dogs.

    I hate his attitude,its not helping the split any.
    If more of the show people tested, he would find that eic is not just a field bred disease. C'mon to our show friends on this board, share with him the dogs who are affected that are show bred......
    I just had a potential stud tested and they said he came back affected. Total full on show breeding.

    What a crock of wrong information in the article "should there be any difference between show dogs and working dogs". In this article, field Labs are described as "hyperative", "extreme case of agression if not enough exercise", "muscles twitch for activity at a constant rate", and "not the right type of dog for most people". "they will take out their frustration on other animals if not provided enough exercise".

    Absolutely. His statements about EIC being a field thing is FAR OFF BASE. All you have to do is look on OFA right now at the EIC data, click on the vertical peds of the Affecteds and see some very pure for show lines that are affected. My Carrier gene came from a dog w/ a very deep show pedigree. My dogs (more field) were clear before that (as verified by testing all in the research phase of the test). I think the show lines have as much, if not more EIC than the field....

    As someone trying to find appropriate show dogs to breed to carriers, I can tell you it is TOUGH. I do think the tide is changing though as more and more breeders are at least sounding like they will consider using the test now.

    A lab is a lab but you can see a difference.

    I've got to say, where I live none of the labs look like most of those sawed off pigs. Most of the labs around here look like the 5's, and they are not from either show or field lines.
