Extremely loyal dog and very loving. We also have two labs, one male one female, he does tend to get along with the female dog better BUT he is definitely an alpha and has toy aggression and food aggression. He has been around a kitten and at first He was unsure but they quickly became buddies... BUT I am not sure how he will be around grown cats. He has never bit anyone, but he has snapped at young kids when they tried to play fetch with his toys. (That's why I strongly recommend a family without children). He loves car rides, belly rubs, and walks/runs. He has basic training commands (sit, lay down, stay, quiet, drop it/leave it, shake, high five..and is kennel trained). He really is a very sweet dog, but having a baby that will be crawling soon I fear that I can't have a dog with aggressive behaviors.
