From the Inside Flap: The Labrador Retriever is, in many ways, the dog with the ideal temperament. A special blend of intelligence, honesty, and kindness has made it unrivaled as the most popular dog in the world. Bred originally as a fisherman's dog, the gentry were swift to see the potential in this sturdy retriever, and the Labrador was adopted as a versatile gundog, retrieving game over land and in water. Today, the Labrador is still highly prized as a working gundog, but its intelligence and good nature have been put to many more uses.
The Labrador is used worldwide as a guide dog for the blind, its excellent nose has made it a first class arms and drug detection dog, and its gentle nature has made it an ideal therepy dog. Quick to learn and eager to please, the Labrador has also made its mark in the competitive sports of Field Trails, Working Trails, Agility, and Obedience. The breed's handsome looks ensure its success in the show ring, but perhaps most important, the Labrador excels as the perfect companion dog.
In The Ultimate Labrador Retriever, 2nd Edition, editor Heather Wile-Fone has recruited a star-studded cast of specialists to write the definitive book on the breed. Experts from all over the world have pooled resources to give the most comprehensive coverage of the Labrador today.
Starting with in-depth research into the origins and development of the breed, the experts go on to analyze the Breed Standard in detail. An acclaimed feature of The Ultimate Labrador Retriever is "The Judge's View," in which an American, British, and German judge make a pictorial critique of six different Labradors.
The critical importance of training and socialization is emphasized throughout the book, as well as detailed information on feeding, genetics, health care, and inherited conditions. There is also a special feature on breeding and rearing Labrador Retrievers.
The Ultimate Labrador Retriever, 2nd Edition, lavishly illustrated with more than 200 color photographs, is a "must-have" reference for the true Labrador enthusiast.
