If you love labs, get this book. Unless you love meth labs; then you need a different book.
This book could cover almost any breed of dog. Apart from a couple of Labrador-specific introductory chapters, the rest of the text makes no reference whatsoever to the Labrador. All material is very generic, and talks about the "dog" or the "puppy" and as such the material could easily apply to any breed. One chapter opens up with "now that you have decided which breed of dog suits your needs" - but haven't we already decided? After all we are reading a book entitled "Labrador Retrievers". The specific references to the Labrador are only mentioned in the captions to the photos, suggesting that if the photos were replaced with those of a different breed, the generic text would still do the job.

Despite these criticisms, the text is still relevant and useful for the first-time dog owner, but do not expect each chapter to be written specifically to address the habits, diseases and behavioural quirks of the Labrador.

For more "Lab-specific" texts, check out "A New Owner's Guide to Labrador Retrievers" by Mary Feazell, or "Training Your Labrador Retriever" by September B. Morn.
