Details: Your Labrador Retriever Month by Month guides new owners through their Lab pup's first year and beyond. Each chapter covers a month and includes sections on physical development, health, nutrition, grooming, social skills, behavior, training, and most important, just enjoying your new new Lab puppy.
You'll learn about the important contribution the breeder makes to starting your pup out on the right paw, and how to continue the puppy's socialization and training once you bring him home. As he grows, you'll be ready to meet the challenges of owning an active Lab, and at the same time keeping him safe and healthy.
The book has over 350 pages, broken down into easy-to-read sections, with plenty of extra tips and tricks to help you successfully raise your Lab puppy. It's a resource I hope you'll turn to throughout your dog's life. Whether your new puppy grows up to be a pet, hunting dog, or competitor, this book is for you!
Many Labrador retriever experts contributed their time and expertise to the production of this book. Special thanks to Barb and Don Ironside of Fawnhaven Labradors, breeders of many champions and master hunters, and Deb M Eldredge DVM, co-author of Dog Owner's Home Veterinary Handbook, 2nd Edition. They read every word and spent countless hours answering my questions.
I hope this book will provide the answers you seek, and that you'll enjoy many years with your Labrador retriever.
