All in a Day's Work: Hard-Hunting Lab Photos

A lot of great photos come across our desks here at Gun Dog, and our special Labradors edition was certainly no different. As such, we've compiled some great hard-hunting lab photos taken by the best in the business: the Gun Dog photographers. Take a look at some great photos of even greater hunting companions doing what they do best, and for more photos and info on these great hunting dogs, pick up a copy of Labradors.
