      I think it depends on the specific needs of the owner, some general qualities however I would think were to be calm, loyal and obedient and for certain not aggressive.

      theres some information here


      after reading around a little bit it seems the idea is to match the individual dogs to specific families. Labradors are use a lot as service dogs (doing things like fetching objects and opening doors for their owners)

      This was also interesting:

      Did you have a particular need in mind though?

      I hope this answer was useful
