Labrador: The Story of the World’s Favourite Dog, by Ben Fogle

Labrador: The Story of the World's Favourite Dog, by Ben Fogle

A face familiar to British TV viewers and adventure hounds across the world, author Ben Fogle charts the history of the Labrador, the world’s most popular dog.

From the dust jacket:

A social history of Labradors, and how they have become the world’s most beloved dogs, by writer, presenter and long-time dog lover Ben Fogle, whose beloved black Labrador, Inca, famously accompanied him on numerous journeys and adventures.

Labradors are the most popular breed of dog in the world. Not only a great family companion, they also excel at hunting, tracking, retrieving, guiding and rescuing. But where did the breed originally come from? How did it develop? When did black, yellow and chocolate Labradors first appear? Did they really all come from Labrador in Canada and are they really all related to just one dog?

Available in hardback, paperback and Kindle forms.
