However, you need to know what you're buying. If you want a lot of information on the history of the breed, I recommend trying another book such as Labrador Retreiver: The Dog That Does It All. On the other hand, if you will be field training your pooch, then I recommend a couple of "oldies but goodies," such as Gun Dog or Water Dog, by Richard Wolters.
Either way -- get the books before you get the dog -- and read them.
In that sense, this book , along with a number of others (e.g. Richard Wolper's "Family Dog") can provide the wary would-be initate with all of the essentials on how to successfully transform that cute little puppy into a happy, obdeient, and well-integrated member of the household. This book does offer one the expert advice one needs regarding the care and nurture of what has now become the single most popular breed in the United States, with information ranging from an impromptu history of Labrador Retrievers to such topics such as adoption options.
The book also delivers to the prospective owner a wealth of facts and details regarding Labrador Retrievers. The book provides essential and vital information regarding nutrition, socialization, and exercise, and offers some sage advice about how to find and select a reputable breeder. In addition, it also touches on aspects of ownerships such as common illnesses and chronic problems associated with the breed. This is a book I can heartily recommend! Enjoy!
I would recommend it for anyone just needing help with a new dog or an older dog who needs firm discipline.
It actually explains how to train the dog by giving examples and steps.
I tried some items and have seen them to work.
A good amount of the tips I already knew about and follow out of instinct.
So it is not totally impressive but surely it puts thoughts in a structured context and refreshes old concepts.
Training is not only about when to sit and when to fetch, it is about being able to communicate with your poochie friend. If you cannot communicate, then, you cant train (not predictable results for sure) the poochie.
This book gets to the basics of what actually is being communicated by each (a lot if not all) of general behaviours we go through with our Labs.
All in All, a really good Beginer's book to training.
