Dogs - Labradore
Hi, we are considering getting a big dog again, people suggested a Labradore, we are moving to a farm soon, my son is 4 years old and we are not sure how a Labradore's reaction are to children and are they overprotected? What do you suggest? We have a jackrussel at the moment.

Thank you

Labradors and Golden Retrievers usually tolerate children quite well. Getting a small pouppy will be the right right way to go so that he knows where he fits into the family.
