If you own a Labrador you will always find "experts"!!! 😏
22 years ago I had my first lab (KC Reg, health tested parents), then had her little sister (same parents) and "some people" said they weren't proper Labradors!!! Because they were Chocolate!!! 👿
When I first took baby Juice out (almost 5 years ago), the "experts" said she was a bit small and I smiled and told them she was exactly what I was looking for - - KC Reg, health tested parents, her Mom was lovely and her Dad had been placed at Crufts 😎

Chel and Juice xx 🐾🐾

Is it the case the the 'working' breed of Lab that we have that type have their ears up and the 'show' type that we had before had much bigger ears which would lay flatter, it seems to be a difference in our new 'working' lab and our previous 'show' type who was much thicker, bigger and broader, someone said that it could be because he is teething that his ears are back and up constantly? is that possibly the cause? or is it simply just the way his ears will always be?

Ear set will be inherited, so depending on the type of ear set in his parents, grandparents etc, that's what he will inherit. There will be differences between show types and working types, but the largest gene pool of all will be pet bred, not shown or worked but simply bred to be pets. Teething has nothing to do with ear set

You have to understand that working and show dogs, although originating from the same original stock, have been selected over the years using totally different criteria. The show dog is selected for looks, and conformation to the breed standard, with little regard for working ability. The working dog on the other hand is selected for ability with little thought given to looks. Looked at like that it's little wonder that after over 100 years working and show lines have grown apart into what now almost appears to be two different breeds!

Ok, thanks for confirming, I agree that they are almost a different breed at this point in some respects, really didn't think there would be such a big disparity between the working type and show type.
