I am not planning on getting another dog yet as Lola is only 4 months old but in the future i am definately going too. I originally have planned another lab but i am not set on that and am open to other breeds. What do you all think works best with a lab, another lab or something else let me know your ideas as i want this time to do all the full checks and pick a good breeder no matter what the breed.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Labs generally get on well with most breeds, a lot of members have other breeds as I expect you`ve noticed, Becs with her mini lab Ted :lol: , and Flo the JRT, Jules with The Pood along with Mojo and Pickle, I have Cindy, she and CJ aren`t bosom buddies but they get on :D

I'd go for something of a similar energy level and with similar instincts if you want a really good match. Although Labs will and do get on with most breeds.

I've had Labs alongside Poodles and Lurchers and my sis has Labs, Terriers, Mongrels and Poodles, yet all the Labs seem to prefer the company of the other Labs, especially when playing. They just seem to understand each other :lol: .

Mojo's preferred friends who are different breeds are Bec's Zorro who is a Golden Retriever and my sisters Myrtle, who is a Lab x OES. And the dogs my Labs have got on least with have been GSD's, BC's, Akitas and any "eyeballing" or assertive dogs....and Mojo is absolutely TERRIFIED of snorty, snuffly things like Bulldogs. :lol:

Just labs for me :D

I think any breed will get on with a lab, a few folks have spaniels, golden retrievers, rottweillers, english bull terrier, staffordshire bull terrier etc etc. It is how you bring up the dog not the breed that matters, bad owners make bad dogs ie all the chavs with staffies, which give the staffie breed a bad name through no fault of the dogs :(

Sooooo agree with this Jules ! Jess loves Molly and she also loves my mums 2 schnauzers but shes a completely different dog around the labs that we meet at the woods. They just seem to play so differently ! The only dogs Jess seems less keen on are JRs - and I'm not sure why as wev'e had no bad incidents !

Paddy gets on with most dogs he meets.

He lives with a GSD of course; a whippet, lurcher and JRT are part of his every day circle of friends :)

i agree that labs love labs! coal esp will ignore most dogs on a walk but a lab gets an instant play bounce :lol:

if i had another breed i think i'd stick in the gun dog group and go for a cocker :D

My only personal experience is of having a lab (Charlie) and a cocker spaniel (Topsy). They are good together, and their exercise requirements are pretty similar too. :D
