The Labrador is believed to have originated on the island of Newfoundland, now part of
the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. The breed was given the name Labrador
Retriever to differentiate from the Newfoundland dog. The Labrador Retriever was originally
called the lesser Newfoundland or the St. John's dog.
Labradors have historically been selectively bred for retrieving in water environments as gun dogs, acting as companions in duck hunting. Labradors have also been used by fishermen to bring nets in by swimming out, grabbing the floating corks on the ends of nets and pulling them back to shore.
The breed was firmly established by the 1820's. Many Noblemen owned or bred them by the end of the 19th century, American Kennel Club pedigrees exist back to 1878. The first Yellow Labrador on record was 'Ben of Hyde', born in 1899.
