What would my yellow labs like better, gravel or sand? if i swapped to sand how would i clean the fish poo that gets underneath the substrate? or can the fish poo only get under the gravel?

They would probably like sand better, because thats what their natural habitat is made of. Poo will stay on top of the sand, which looks bad, but is sooooo much easier to remove by just siphoning it off with water changes. Or, you could go all the way and set up some under gravel jets to get a flow in the direction of your filter intake (will work with gravel also btw)
