Be the best friend to your best friend by knowing what it takes to find, feed, train and raise a Labrador.

Great information and guide.

Great guide with accurate insights to the Lab. For me personally, I would have liked more information geared towards adult dogs Maybe a complete section separate from puppies. Lots of adult rescues out there.

Thank you for a great resource!

I especially appreciate the part about having a Lab with young children in the home because it reminds us to be mindful of how important it is to have the whole family on the same page when it comes to behavior/house training. Thank you for a great resource!

Tips for Training

I'm experiencing my first black lab so this book was helpful with tips on training and giving me ideas on how to keep her interested. She has really learned to appreciate the water in the lake and river nearby.

I recommend this!

The author also writes the book well - isn't boring to read and he bolds the headers and important info. The back of the book also has an index for quick reference, which has come in handy. Buy this book; the author truly knows what he's talking about!

What we've learned has been so helpful! House training, introduction to the family, basic commands - they've learned it all easily and I'm positive it's because we understood it so clearly from this book

All chapters are good

All chapters that really go into detail about how to train and prepare for your dog. In this book he also has video links on his website that go along with the book so you can have a visual image of what he is teaching. Author really covers everything in this book. I recommend this book! Especially if you're wanting to further strengthen your bond with your dog and teach him in a positive enforcement way.
