We are currently looking for a lab puppy to join our family. We live in the country, have a large garden and country walks on our doorstep. We have had dogs before and have decided that we would like a lab this time. Many of the litters I am looking at are from working lines. We would like an active dog who enjoys playing, jumping into water etc.. I know that working dogs have got more drive but can they also switch off in the home environment? Just concerned that being working it won't be too needy verging on neurotic around the house! The ones I am looking at are very well bred and healthy so it's just answering the question about temperament and suitability for a family home.
