With the exception of those who are already involved in the world of dog shows, few people know much about showing dogs and what it takes to develop a champion. Even if you take the time to read a "how-to-show your dog" book, you will likely only learn half of what you really need to know. In Showing Kunga, author Alxe Noden tells the story of how she went from being a pet owner with no interest in showing dogs to what she describes as a "dog show junkie." This is no sugar coated story, but rather is a revealing and often humorous exploration of showing dogs, warts and all, by an author with no axe to grind and with nothing to sell other than a very entertaining and educational story. You are guaranteed to fall in love with Kunga, her fun loving and lively blue Great Dane.

The colourful early history of the breed is here vividly told, while in the chapters dealing with breeding, rearing, exhibiting, field trials and police work the comments of leading fanciers will be found of great value to the novice owner and indeed to labrador lovers of longer standing. 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 Club's Rules for Field Trial; Meetings; The Labrador as Police Dog; First Aid; Hints; A Labrador Glossary.
