Did Your Labrador Train You Well? Know The Signs!


Who’s training who? Did your Labrador train you well?! What are the signs that you’re a well-trained human?

Yes, your Lab probably obeys your every command. He sits, stands and comes on command. If your Lab does all that, he is most likely well-trained.

But in everyday life, your dog may have trained you as well!

Here are some signs confirming that you are one well-trained human!


You rush to obey your Lab’s ‘commands’!

You’ve set up an Instagram account or Facebook page for your Labrador Retriever, which you update with at least 5 posts per day. Your dog acquires hundreds of doggie friends – who trained their humans well as your dog did with you. You think it’s weird and funny, but you can’t help it because you don’t want anyone to miss a moment of your dog’s cuteness. Have we mentioned your dog gets more likes? He has more followers than you, too!


You have to avoid saying words and spell them out instead

You spend your weekends with your Labrador!

Your Lab wears “designer” while you’re in ”Walmart”!
