Summary

If you want to add the best qualities of America’s top dog to your household, you’ll need to know how to avoid the potential quirks of the breed!

I’m really glad I bought it

I love how they break the stages down. It’s a fun/interesting read along as you watch your pup grow each month. I would really recommend this if you are a first time lab owner. It has a lot of great tips and information that a lab owner would want to know first hand.

Good Worth it

We haven't yet got our puppy but I feel prepared after reading this book. It seems like a good starting point if your thinking about getting a lab puppy. I love how its divided into ages and what to expect. I've read only the first few months as that's the area we are in so I'm looking forward to reading more as our puppy grows.

This book was just what I needed

This book was just what I needed (I read it from cover to cover the day before he arrived). Yes, there are differences between theory and practice, and every dog is an individual -- but the book takes that into consideration and includes just about everything you might need to know. Fun trivia as well. Training tips are great -- better than puppy classes! I'm glad I got the eBook version, however, because there's no index, which makes the search function necessary.

Well-written

Well-written, valuable, immediately usable information. I consider this book a must read for any lab owner - - wanna-be or soon-to-be lab owner. We have several books re: Labradors and what to expect month by month; this is the very best so far. Glad we have it.

Essential handbook for raising a Labrador puppy.

It's provides excellent Lab specific information directly relevant to the age of your puppy as it develops over the first year. The specifics on training, care, and socialization are detailed, helpful, and ,most important, specific enough that they are both practical and directed at exactly what you need to know when you need to know it. If I had to buy only one book on raising a Labrador puppy, this would be it.

Good book for a new puppy

Thanks Kimberly Lawrence for writing this book. This is the book I have been looking for. I have had only had Springer Spaniels. This is my first Lab and after listening your book I am able to understand why my Lab behaves the way he does. I would recommend this book to the first time Lab owner and to veteran owners.
