Default Dogs

What kind of dog is full of energy, likes to run, play fetch, and likes playing in the water? One that is not too overly aggresive but will still be protective of kids.

Your discription has LABRADOR written all over it! They have more energy than any dog I've ever seen, they love fetching and I'm sure they'll jump into anything including water! Not aggressive dogs but they are protective of property, surroudings and children.

just my 2 cents

Lab...among about 100 other breeds. The lab is a wonderfull dog and make absolutely superb pets. The only drawback is their penchant to chew on positivelyu everything when they are pups. I have had four in my long line of dogs I have owned and each was just a delight. Great with kids of all ages.

Just have enough ground and something for them for do and you will have a superb companion.

x3 you described a LAB to a tee. I have an 11 year old LAB that I just love. He was my hunting buddy for 9. He retired two years ago but still has some pupply left in him.

My GSP is pretty close to what you described but I had to put a lot of effort into teaching him to retrieve. He only goes in the water if a bird or a stick is in it.

Labs are great dogs we have a yellow now my family has owned a lot of Labs over the years & the only bad thing I can say about them is they can be stubborn but when they get in that mood you just have to be strict with them & show them you are the boss

We've had labs and I loved them to pieces but I think our German shorthair is a really good dog. She loves to play, is great with the kids, and is protective. The bad thing is shes a spoiled rotten house dog. I told our 3 yr old daughter she was worthless cause she doesn't hunt. I got told "shes not worthless. She loves me!"

lol I think that Meth Lab is like Marmaduke on crack, very unpredictable, and may chew the tires off your truck.
