This is also specific to Labrador puppies which love love love to chew.

If you have a shared cement space (living in apartments or condos), you can use this video tip to clean the cement.
In a large bucket squirt 3-4 squirts of dish soap and 1/3 cup of bleach and add hot water. It will foam up. Then pour small amounts on the cement and brush with a broom. When finished with area, rinse several times to wash all bleach/soap solution off.

Everyone always asks me what I feed my dogs and the puppies or what food do I recommend. The answer is Royal Canin http://www.royalcanin.us/
PUPPIES 8 WEEKS-15 MONTHS
LABRADOR RETRIEVER PUPPY 33™ is designed exclusively for pure breed Labrador Retriever puppies from 8 weeks to 15 months
Did you know?
If a Labrador Retriever Puppy grows too quickly, his weight can outpace his skeletal development, even leading to deformities. And, Labrador Retrievers (even puppies) are prone to gain extra weight, which can cause problems as they grow.
LABRADOR RETRIEVER PUPPY 33™ provides balanced energy levels to maintain a steady, healthy growth curve.
Just like adults, Labrador Retriever puppies are prone to extra weight, causing problems as they grow.LABRADOR RETRIEVER PUPPY 33™ is formulated with L-carnitine which may help to burn fat.
The digestive tract of a puppy is not fully developed until he matures. LABRADOR RETRIEVER PUPPY 33™ is formulated with a special blend of fibers that gently support the puppy's healthy digestion.

DOGS OLDER THAN 15 MONTHS
LABRADOR RETRIEVER 30™ is designed exclusively for pure breed Labrador Retrievers over 15 months.
Did you know?
Labrador Retrievers typically eat very quickly and gulp their food. They also tend to gain weight, which puts more stress on their joints. The Labrador Retriever also has a waterproof coat—their skin secretes an oil that protects it against cold and water.
Increased weight can lead to serious health problems.LABRADOR RETRIEVER 30™ is formulated with precise energy levels and L-carnitine to improve fat metabolization.
More bodyweight increases the level of stress on the skeleton. LABRADOR RETRIEVER 30™ contains supplemental levels of glucosamine and chondroitin to support healthy joints.
The Labrador Retriever's skin secretes an oil which protects them from cold and water. LABRADOR RETRIEVER 30™ is formulated with Omega 6 fatty acids to help support a healthy coat.
Labradors tend to eat too much too fast.The LABRADOR RETRIEVER 30™'s kibble is specifically designed to prevent gulping, help your dog to feel fuller more quickly and reduce the amount of calories consumed.
Most owners use the Royal Canin but a few didn't and ended up going back to it for the shiny coat and calm personality.
*Always make sure to check with your vet and make sure to slowly switch over to new food to avoid stomach upset.

In honor of his birthday the family always makes a little yummy thing to eat for the birthday dog and the other two get to eat also. I found so many yummy recipes that I posted on our facebook site www.facebook.com/godivalabs and Pinterest site http://pinterest.com/jenvazquezcom/godiva-labradors-chocolate-love/ and Instagram site http://instagram.com/godivalabradors
I decided, while in the kitchen and surveying what I had and didn't by way of ingredients, to create my own recipe. I was interested in making a No Cook recipe but included rice as I usually have some on already cooked rice on hand. If you don't, you can leave the rice out.
3 Cup oats
1 Cup (already cooked) rice
1/2 Cup peanut butter (the natural low/no sugar is best)
1/4 Cup parmasean cheese
1/4 Cup warm water
Start with a glass bowl (this mixture will stick too much to plastic bowls). Add oats and peanut butter and mix with fork by pushing oats into peanut butter.
Take a tablespoon and scoop out and squeeze and roll into a ball. And roll in cheeses onto dinner plate. Once done put plate into freezer for 1-3 hours to harden.
Makes 16-20 balls and they will keep well in a ziplock bag in fridge for 2 weeks or freezer up to 2 months.
