A small jumping puppy is very cute but a large jumping 90 pound dog can be dangerous. Puppies need to run and play but need to be taught not to jump up on people, both adults and children. When standing on hind legs, a full grown Lab can be as tall (or taller) than an average size adult woman. A friendly, playful dog that size can be frightening and dangerous when jumping up at full force. Taught from a puppy that this is unacceptable behavior, jumping won't be a problem when full grown.

Not able to provide your pup with a daily walk? Professional dog walkers & pet sitters can help. An experienced dog walker will know how to properly walk and exercise you pup. One walk a day will provide both exercise, companionship and the social experience that dogs need to help prevent obesity and curb boredom.
Will your large pup have sufficient space to run and play? A large fenced-in yard is not a substitute for walks but is the perfect place for your pup to run off leash, play and experience different sights and sounds. Have available a variety of puppy or dog safe balls and toys upgrading them to larger age appropriate varieties as needed. Many dogs love tennis balls and will enjoy a game of fetch or will enjoy the challenge of catching fly balls. It is important that these balls and toys are checked for wear and replaced when they become old and worn. Once the outside fabric of a tennis balls starts to shred it could become dangerous if the your pup pulls off pieces and ingests them.
