The book is well illustrated with photographs and it contains some striking and hitherto unrecorded instances of Labrador intelligence and sagacity. The Labrador owes its renown not to any passing whim of fashion. It has come about through the gradual realisation by dog-lovers of the high endowment of brains, beauty and honest-to-goodness desire to please, which has been increasingly shown through several decades by this grand companion of field and fireside, who has so convincingly demonstrated his right to be acknowledged as the prince of gun-dog, and first-rate friend and guard into the bargain. Contents Include: The History of the Labrador- Hints on Breeding Labradors- The Labrador Puppy- The Labrador Retriever- Training to Retrieve- Preparation for Show and Field Trial- The Labrador Retriever Clubs Rules for Field Trial- Meetings- The Labrador as Police Dog- First Aid- Hints- A Labrador Glossary.
