The Labmaraner is hybrid dog crossed between the Weimaraner and the Labrador retriever. Since it is bred newly, a little is known about its history and origin, but its parents can identify its characteristics.
Temperament and Personality
The pack-oriented and sociable breed is always happy to help its people in all activities. They do not like to be left alone for an extended period as they tend to develop separation anxiety. It will alert its owner by barking if they see any strange thing happening which makes it a great guard dog. Inheriting some of the personality traits from its parents, the breed is gentle, loyal and lovable as a pet. They should be kept under close supervision when they are with young children. Being an attention seeker, they remain close to the members of the family.
Since it is a highly energetic and lively dog, it requires a vigorous amount of activity every day to release its energy. If they are living in apartments, they need to go out for long leash walks or jog to keep them physically fit and mentally stimulated. They also require activities like hiking, jumping, playing and running.
The dog is not much of a concern to maintain because of its short hair. Brushing once every alternate week keeps its fur shiny and bathing with dog shampoo only when necessary will help to preserve its natural oil. Brush its teeth two to three times a week to prevent lousy odor and check its ears once a week for an infection.
Like other crossbreeds, it is also a healthy breed, but can be prone to some of the problems. They are hip dysplasia, patellar luxation, entropion, bloating, diarrhea, fleas, worms, ear infection, and obesity.
The dog is easy to train, but their stubborn nature might make it a little tricky. They need a consistent and firm leader who does not use harsh and rough tone, instead use the positive method. Make them familiar with their crates and start socialization at a very early stage. Also, restrain them from digging holes in the garden and chewing small household items.
The dog requires a diet rich in protein, nutrition, vitamins, minerals and carbohydrates to maintain its energy level. Serve them with 4-5 cups of high-quality dry dog food according to its size, weight, and metabolism.
