Meet the Lab is the first official publication endorsed by the world’s leading authority on purebred dogs, the American Kennel Club (AKC) devoted to America’s most popular dog, the Labrador Retriever. As the AKC’s number-one breed in registration statistics for twenty consecutive years, the Labrador Retriever reigns as America’s top companion breed, though the breed’s superb athleticism has led it to excel as a hunting and competition dog as well.. Eleven chapters detail the history, characteristics, and special requirements for owning this active Sporting breed, heavily illustrated with beautiful color images of puppies and adults. A chapter devoted to the purchase and selection of the Lab puppy gives the reader specific guidance on how to locate a qualified breeder and to recognize a healthy, sound puppy whether for companionship or sport, or both. Two separate chapters serve as a primer to training the puppy—house-training and obedience work, favoring positive-training techniques as the best and most successful way to educate dogs. Chapters on grooming, feeding, exercise, and home and veterinary care offer indispensable information for new dog owners. As an official publication of the AKC, produced in conjunction with the Labrador Retriever Club, Meet the Lab also explains the many vital programs offered by the AKC to all pet dog owners, including the S.T.A.R. Puppy and the Canine Good Citizen programs, as well as overview to the various dog sports in which Labs excel, including obedience, field trials, dog shows, agility, and more. A detailed resources section offers recommendations for websites, books, periodicals, and club affiliate programs, all of great interest to responsible new dog owners.
