Description

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!

    Plethora of useful information!

    By on

    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).
