Ideally, your Labrador should be brushed at least once a week (preferably daily) improve shedding. Regular use of a de-matter, undercoat rake, or slicker brush can also help your Labrador's coat.
For good measure, how do you brush a Labrador? To brush your Labrador, begin with a pin brush. Brush with the direction of the coat to warm up your Lab to his brushing session. Then, begin working at the base of his tail, and in short, brisk strokes brush his entire coat backward. You'll want to make sure that the brush pins work down to his skin.
Finally, how often should you brush your lab?
Brushing: A thorough brushing once a week with a natural or nylon bristle brush is all your Lab needs to stay clean. However daily brushing feels great to your Lab and keeps her immaculately clean. The brushing action stimulates the natural oils in the skin, which will keep her coat glistening.
Why do Labradors lick so much?
Why dogs lick They use their tongues for many reasons – to clean, communicate, show affection, explore their environment – and to deal with stress. ... Dogs can even start licking when they're bored. Instinctively, when dogs were in the wild, pups ready to be weaned would lick their mother's mouth for regurgitated food.

Without plenty of physical stimulation and social interaction, Labs will bark more than normal, possibly to excess, due to their pent-up energy. If your Lab is plenty stimulated but still barking, it could be because they're scared, frustrated, guarding or even suffering from separation anxiety.
However, as a general rule of thumb, a normally healthy adult Labrador Retriever will need 1 hour of exercise every day. The more relaxed Labs just 45 minutes per day, the more energetic 1.5 hours+. This can be made up of running, swimming, playing fetch, jogging alongside you… anything that goes beyond a gentle walk.
Dog Shedding Brush When it comes to Labrador shedding solutions, the Furminator is a very safe choice. It removes those dead hairs which would otherwise end up lining your carpets and furniture, whilst gently brushing the remaining coat.
You can lessen the amount of seasonal shedding by brushing your Labrador daily or weekly. Brush her more often during molting season. Occasionally baths will help to loosen shed fur as well. You can also decrease the amount of dog hair hanging about in your house by removing already shed hairs.
The Labrador Retriever is one of the smellier breeds in the canine world. ... It can hold on to odors in a way that dogs with single layer coats typically won't. However, not all people find the odor of a smelly Labrador unpleasant. In fact, some people quite like “Labrador smell.”
No it does not hurt your Pet if used correctly. I have a Rescue mixed breed that is part Husky and a shedding machine. She really doesn't care to be brushed but if I use the Furminator in gentle, long strokes she really accepts it quite well. I try to thoroughly brush her with it twice a week.
