    Very informative and detailed for the entirety of the book. Of course, I think certain areas need closer text for a deeper understanding, but Pippa has a great selection of resources in the end to lead you in the right direction. Overall a great book. I recently had my lab pass at 14 and we're finally deciding on getting another lab in our lives. My last lab, I raised by myself when I was 12 years old. I'm hoping with this one, I can raise it being a little bit prepared and more hands on. This b Very informative and detailed for the entirety of the book.

This book gave great directions and positive information for not just behavior, but every aspect of a labrador's life.

    A very comprehensive guide for prospective Labrador owners! I’ve highlighted passages, reread and shared tips with my family members in anticipation of our Labrador puppy’s arrival!

    This is a thought provoking book that any aspiring Labrador owner should buy before getting a puppy. Pippa has her finger firmly on the pulse when it comes to the problems faced by new and prospective owners of Labradors as well as existing owners and goes to great lengths to highlight all the problem areas that inevitably crop up once the novelty of having a new puppy wears thin, as well as offering practical solutions.

Pippa has her finger firmly on the pulse when it comes to the problems faced by new and prospective owners of Labradors as well as existing owners and goes to great lengths to highlight all the problem areas that inevitably crop up once the novelty of having a new puppy wears thin, as well as offering practical solutions. She does this in a non judgemental manner and always in clear terms that are easily understood. Similarly with her chapters on training. She is passionate about promoting modern, science based training methods & showing that there is an alternative to traditional aversive techniques and has the happy knack of being able to get her message across in easily understood language and simple exercises without slipping into confusing scientific jargon. I particularly liked the chapter on Your Senior Dog, with it's poignant thoughts on 'when to let go', for this is perhaps the stage in our dog's life when they need our understanding and compassion the most. I have no hesitation in recommending this invaluable book to anyone who owns or is thinking of owning a Labrador puppy, whether with show, pet or working purposes in mind. In fact, the advice within this book would be good for any new puppy owner, whatever the breed.

    If you’re thinking of buying a Labrador, (or even if you’re sitting there with a puppy thinking ‘Help what have I done?’), this is the book for you. It gives a warts-and-all picture of what it means to have a Labrador as part of your family - “Labradors have a distinctive smell which they like to enhance on occasions by rolling in rotting seagulls or fox poo,” but also celebrates the joy these dogs bring through many wonderful colour photographs.

The Labrador Handbook gives comprehensive coverage of all aspects of finding and caring for a Labrador, from puppyhood to old age, and includes chapters dealing with health, training, breeding and dog sports. The information is clearly laid-out, with sub-headings within chapters as well as an index, so that you can quickly find what you need. The writing style is straightforward and easy to understand. At the back of the book there is a useful list of websites and organisations that provide further advice and support.
