Why do dogs carry sticks?
Toys are fun to chase, catch, chew, toss, kill and tear apart. Sticks are great toys because dogs can chew on them for hours. Labs can harness their inner hunter and forager instinct.
A friend writes: “My Labrador loves laying down in the grass and chewing on sticks. He chews them apart and doesn’t actually eat them, just chews them apart and depending on the type of stick, he will peel off the bark with his teeth and toss it aside. We also play tug o’ war sometimes with a stick he finds and sometimes he’ll just find one while walking and carry it in his mouth.”

Labradors are well built for action.
Labrador hair is usually short and straight, and their tail is quite broad and strong. The webbed toes of the Labrador Retriever make them excellent swimmers. The webbing between their toes can also serve as a “snowshoe” in colder climates. Labradors are known to have a very soft feel to the mouth, and were bred to retrieve game.
