Everything You Need To Know!

This book contains everything you need to know about Labs as well as some other information that will help with most types of puppies. I went into Lab ownership blindly and uneducated and within a week I realized I was going to need some help. This book provides information about whether or not a Lab is the right dog for you, how to choose your lab, and everything you need to know about raising your lab, either from a puppy or from an adult dog. I feel very prepared and confident about my upcoming years with my Lab. If you want basic knowledge, especially before you actually get a Lab, the "Labrador Retrievers for Dummies Handbook" for $0.99 is also an extremely helpful quick read. If you do decide that a Lab is the right dog for you, then I couldn't suggest a better guide than this.
