With the GTA being one of the most highly populated areas of Canada, it’s no wonder that many of the Labrador Retrievers we breed find their way to homes in Toronto. There are mixed thoughts on bringing a large breed pup to Toronto because of Toronto being an urban area and we will look at some of the issues here. Rest assured that if you are looking for puppies for sale in Toronto, we are the Labrador breeder for you-and, we specialize in having the highest quality, smartest and healthiest chocolate labs for sale.
Points for Big city Dogs like our Labrador Retriever Puppies in Toronto Ontario
Room to exercise is first on the list. If you think you can bring your Lab Retriever puppy home to a small apartment and expect them to lay around all day without exercise, it’s not going to work! Labs are working dogs and that means brisk walks at a minimum once a day. You may find that your lab is getting into trouble chewing things, etc.... This likely means he/she is not getting enough exercise so a second walk is in order. And....if this doesn’t work you need to increase the intensity of their exercise. Find a dog park and get out for some hard running playing fetch. If your Purebred Lab Retriever is exercised properly, they won’t have the energy to get into trouble.
Mental stimulation is next. A Labrador Retriever in Toronto will require the same mental stimulation as a dog in the country. This means, opposed to lying in an apartment all day, they need to use their nose and their minds. This can also be achieved by letting them track with their noses at a park or you can provide rainy day stimulation by giving your Lab’s food to them using a food puzzle. It doesn't matter if you are looking for a chocolate lab, a black lab or a silver lab, the color of their coat doesn't determine their behavior, diet, obedience training, exercise and mental stimulation does.
Many of our Lab pups in Toronto have their very own dog walker. These are people hired to come to your residence, pick up your Lab and take them for a midday walk. Dog walkers in Toronto can be very effective breaking up your Lab’s alone time while you are at work. Just schedule your walker to come for an hour half way through your day and your Toronto Lab Retriever will get a bathroom break and some much needed exercise. The average rate for a group walk is between $15 and $18 dollars per visit.
Other points to be aware of are the pavement being too hot for their feet in the summer, road salt drying out the pads on their paws in the winter. These issues can be addressed safely once you are aware of them.
