Currently for my presentation I have Personality Traits of a Labrador Retriever for my title.  What would be a better title that would draw readers in?

What about if you used some of those traits as your title?  For example, you might have something like:

Lovable Troublemaker

or

Hundred-Pound Lapdog

One key to drawing your reader in is to make the reader wonder what in the world you are going to talk about.  In the first example, the reader doesn't know if you are going to be talking about a person or an animal, really.  Curiosity is always a good "hook." 

Another way to draw the reader in is with humor, which the second title might do.  The idea of a hundred-pound dog sitting on anyone's lap is funny.  And I know that labs do this because I have one.
