I found this book very informative.

If you are a first-time dog/lab owner, this is a good book to help you think through the process of getting one adapted to your home.

I just bought about 5 or 6 books on Labs, as my wife and I will be picking our new lab up next week.

When it says the everything, it does tell you everything. It even has mini tips on facts, alerts and even questions that you may have on a lab. People that want to learn and care, I would highly reccomend this book.

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book while we were considering getting a labrador retriever puppy and researching the breed. "The Everything Labrador Retriever Book" has been a terrific resource with information about the breed, where to get your dog, what to look for, how to prepare for the dog, bringing the puppy/dog home, how to keep your dog healthy and happy, basic training tips, etc. Topics are easy to find and read. We've literally used this book every step of the way... in researching breeders, bringing our puppy home, and finding answers to last minute questions as they come up.

My only complaint about the book would be that the suggested questions for breeders are located at the very end of the book... I would think these would be included with the "how to choose a breeder" section earlier in the book. Also, leash training was one of the very first "needs" for us once we brought our pup (6 months when we got him) home, yet the book did not discuss this much. I was able to find leash training tips online, but was disappointed not to find it in the book.

Overall, the book does not contain EVERYTHING you could ever want/need to know, but it comes pretty close. It's definitely a great resource for the novice labrador retriever owner, but may be a bit redundant for those who are more experienced. I definitely recommend this book.

I have had several labrador retrievers and this book was very helpful in learning basic facts about labs. It gives great tips for training your dog as well as facts that will help you in the future while raising your lab. I think you will be pleased if you purchase this book. It is like an encyclopedia for labrador retreivers.

This book is more of a general dog book, than something specific to labs. Now that my lab is 7 months old, and I'm learning about her personality, this book could have dedicated a lot more to that subject.

I just bought about 5 or 6 books on Labs, as my wife and I will be picking our new lab up next week. Although we both grew up with dogs, I wanted to make sure we were on the same page as far as training, etc.

I must say, this book is by far and away the BEST book we read. It is thorough without being boring... unlike some of the other books we ordered...

In my opinion, if you can only purchase one book on labs, this is it!

There is a lot of good info in here. Nothing groundbreaking or surprising, but can be helpful. If you are a first-time dog/lab owner, this is a good book to help you think through the process of getting one adapted to your home. If you already own a Lab, you likely won't find anything in this book that you didn't already know.

Not sure what I was thinking when I purchased this book, but it is full of common sense stuff that I already knew. If you are not a dog and person and don't know anything this might help, not sure. I would not recommend this book to the everyday dog owner.
