We have found these publications to be very helpful in the past. If you are planning to buy a Labrador as a pet or for showing, we highly recommend that you take the time to educate yourself about the breed. Most of the books can be found at Dr. Billinghurst’s books can also be found at You can also try or for anything with an ISBN listed. A simple search for the number will bring up the book you requested.

I have also included invaluable information about diet and health that should not go unread by any dog owner. As stated on the Natural Diet page, we feed all our dogs a raw food diet. It is something we feel very strongly about, and we urge you to learn more so that you are able to make an informed decision about the care of your dog.

Owning a dog is a responsibility we do not take lightly. It is essential that we all learn to properly care for our dogs, just as we do our children.

Grow Your Pups with Bones:

Reader review: “…Glossy, shiny coats with no skin conditions to speak of. Healthy teeth, outstanding energy. Right weight, no obesity/fattiness to my dogs. Sweet breath even after they’re a year old. Smell great, very few baths needed. No impacted teeth all came loose naturally. Love chilling out with their bones. Healthy, hard stools (no anal gland draining needed, ever). No waste of meat scraps/veggies around the house (we use after juicing pulp and mix it in)…”
