Your getting a lab tomorrow and your just now asking this? Have you done any research on the breed at all? If you haven't, you need to sit down and read up on them before bringing that puppy home. Labs can be wonderful family pets however they do require A LOT of excersise more then what your kids can provide. The dog would love the play time with them however they need time to run or swim. Something that would really wear them out. I have an almost 7 year old Lab that I have to run with my bike (or take to the river) everyday otherwise he is boucing off the walls because he has to much pent up energy. Labs can also be very destructive if they get bored and are not getting the excersise they need. Beau is a wonderful dog, a big overgrown clown but when he does not get that excersise he is like a hyperactive child.
