Discipline is one of the most important aspects of owning any Dog.
Puppy school is not an option – it is a necessity to train owners and it is important to include children in the family. That way, everyone will learn how to manage the dog and nurture it into becoming a well-adjusted member of the family.
Puppy school helps develop good habits right from the start. Wait until your puppy is at least 6 months old before putting it through any serious work.
Labrador Retrievers are family dogs – this breed loves having people around. Labrador Retrievers are gentle with children. This dog loves to play and is always ready, particularly with kids. Introduce your Labrador Retriever to children early, as this will bond dog and child and prevent jealousy. You will find the Labrador Retriever will be more protective towards that child.
Discipline your dog!
It's a matter of thinking and working a step ahead of your Labrador Retriever. Again, you should do it with love and firmness. Moreover, a Labrador Retriever that is well behaved today may not remain so forever. A dog's behavior constantly changes; so make the discipline constant.
Train your dog!
You don’t let a little thing like rain stand in the way of training your Labrador Retriever, so you need the right equipment that will stand up to the wettest of elements. And when it comes to training your Retriever, you need to track progress. And that’s where the Rite in the Rain hunting journals come in handy.
