Why are Labs always so hyper? and why are they so strong? Also is it true that Labs are all really stinky because if so I think I need my nose checked becuase they don't smell to me?

Labs as a breed, when trained properly are not hyper. They're very loving, people-oriented dogs, but they're also action-oriented. They need a lot of exercise or they can become bored easily & they have a lot of excess energy. Lots of exercise & proper obedience training make for non-hyper dogs. They're strong because that's how they were bred...its in their genes. The breed is a muscular dog. It was a breed that at its inception was used to haul fishermen's nets to shore so they had to be strong dogs.

i agree with kelly. labs just want to have fun and part of their strength is from having to swim which as was said was bred into them. labs are great dogs

I agree with Kelly, too. Labs are by genetics/breeding muscular and high energy dogs. They need lots of exercise and mental stimulation as well.
