Learn all about your furry bundle of joy with Your Labrador Retriever Puppy Month by Month, 2nd Edition. Equipping with you with everything you need to know, as well as what to do at each stage, this book gives you the tools for taking your playful pup into happy, healthy, well-adjusted adulthood. The expert authors cover all the questions that new owners tend to have, as well as the ones they might not think to ask.

In this book, you’ll learn what to ask the breeder before bringing your puppy home; how to properly vaccinate; how to make potty training as smooth and quick as possible; what to do when your puppy cries at night, and why and how to crate train. It also covers how to socialize; the basic training commands and when to teach them; when and how to go about leash training; what to feed him and how much; how to groom him; what requires a trip to the vet, and so much more. In short, this book means that puppies actually can come with a training manual!

    great book

    By giada on Jan 7, 2022

    I got this book last year when we got our pup. I highly recommend this book. That being said, I don’t set all my store in everything it says but it’s a great guide for first time dog owners.

    This book contains blatant misinformation

    By AccuracyMatters on Sep 27, 2021

    This book includes false talking points from the Labrador Retriever Club, an organization which once thoroughly investigated silver Labrador Retrievers, concluded that there was no reason to believe that they are not purebred, and then reversed its position not because of newer, better information, but because of pressure from LRC members who did not have silver puppies to sell. First the LRC said silvers are purebred, now they say they are not, and they even got a veterinarian on their board to contradict genetic scientists by claiming Labradors do not even have the gene necessary to be silver. Literally thousands of DNA tests all show that pedigreed AKC Labs are purebred, the LRC's own multi-year This book includes false talking points from the Labrador Retriever Club, an organization which once thoroughly investigated silver Labrador Retrievers, concluded that there was no reason to believe that they are not purebred, and then reversed its position not because of newer, better information, but because of pressure from LRC members who did not have silver puppies to sell.

Literally thousands of DNA tests all show that pedigreed AKC Labs are purebred, the LRC's own multi-year investigation shows that they are purebred, thousands of DNA tests show they are not inbred, yet the authors of this book repeat the LRC's new talking points that silvers are inbred cross-breeds and not purebred. None of these talking points stands up to scrutiny. Why does this matter? Because it contributes to the bullying of silver Lab owners and the less-than-stellar car of silver Labs by some vets who buy into the unfounded prejudice. … more

    Great for New Puppy Parents

    By HazelMOM on Jul 24, 2021

    I haven’t had a lab puppy in like 12 years. Hazel’s dad has never had a puppy. It was a great refresher for me. He has literally highlighted and dog eared sections on this book like it is a text book. It doesn’t cover rescue/adopting enough in my opinion and can be overwhelming that’s why it got 4 not 5 stars

    Plethora of useful information!

    By Review on Apr 2, 2020

    The fear response stage?! I had no idea this was a thing but it explained why my pup all of a sudden wouldn't walk down the stairs. This is an excellent stage by stage guidebook that addresses all of the essentials (potty training, feeding, socializing) as well as unique topics specific to monthly development. Easy to read and reference. Highly recommend. Thanks Chewy team! (Pup walks down the stairs again thanks to this book).
