Hopefully you have been doing some work sit, come, stay with your lab already the first five months is my opinion is very important time. What kind of training are you looking at just obedience or developing hunting skills also?
I am looking for obedience training. I have been working with him but would like him finished off by someone else. I am not consistent enough to do it every day. I will hunt with him but will work on those skills myself in the field.
Tom and Katie Quarles at Autumn Retrievers in Arlington. Long drive from Tacoma but well worth it. We have used them for years, they fixed many problems caused by other trainers. Contact them at [email protected] tell them Hoss & Gunners Humans sent you. If you need more info give me a PM.
