List & Training Resources
The following books offer the reader valuable
information on breeding, training and/or handling of the
Labrador Retriever based upon the principles and values
embraced by Pigeon River Labradors.
Pigeon River Labradors is dedicated to producing a
cooperative, intelligent and well-mannered gundog-what
some would regard as a "natural" gundog rather than a
highly controlled, "turn and burn" type retriever.
I prefer to refer to our gundogs as "The Respectable
Gundog." The books listed below exemplify these values.
