About the Labloodhound
The Labloodhound is a hybrid dog that is made up of a combination of two different purebreeds. It's a cross between the Bloodhound and the Labrador Retriever. We've found the best method for understanding the characteristics of the Labloodhound is to read both of its ancestors descriptions taking note of their temperaments, size and general look.

The Labloodhound has a deep chest and muscular shoulders along with excess skin around the neck and upper back. Their coats come in black, brown and white, and rusty brown. They may or may not inherit the hound eyes. Their ears are longer than a Labrador but not always as long as a Bloodhound.
Labloodhounds are known to be friendly and generally love everyone they meet. They are curious and high energy so they should be watched carefully. Being both Bloodhound and Labrador they love to track and may take off for hours at a time. They are independent and very intelligent. With firm training and proper socialization they can be a great addition to your family.
Labloodhounds can have skin allergies inherited from their Labrador counterpart and may be prone to ear infections. They have very strong teeth and can be chewers.
Labloodhounds are fairly low maintenance dogs. With regular brushing, baths and a good diet they shed very little and have beautiful shiny coats. They are chewers and keep their teeth in good health. They have good metabolisms and stay nice and lean like a hound with sufficient exercise.
Labloodhounds need sufficient space to run around and burn off excess energy. They are great indoors and are content lying around but as soon as they are outdoors their instincts kick in and they want to track. They need plenty of chew toys to ensure they do not chew anything you do not want them to. A fenced in yard is ideal as they are prone to "following their noses". They are great around kids and other dogs but smaller animals can excite them (cats, squirrels and rabbits). They are very affectionate, loyal and need to be reminded how much they are loved.
If you're having problems training your dog or getting control, you should read our review of DogProblems.com. Adam will do whatever it takes to help you whip your dog into shape. I've used them to help with my Great Dane as well as help friends train their dogs. It's the first place I go to help answer users Questions. Many training issues are too extensive to answer in this forum, which is why I refer a lot of the load to his site.
