    Hi all, I'm Sarah (if you hadn't guessed from the oh so creative username!) and my hubby and I have recently adopted a Labrador. He's 9 months old and his name is Spencer. He came to us when his original family had to rehome him, he's been with us a week now and he's a lovely dog. Pulls terribly on leash though, my arms are 3 times the length they were a week ago! My hubby is in the British Army and we're currently in Germany so finding a training class is proving...difficult to say the least. Don't really need one but have enjoyed them with my previous dogs so would like to take Spencer to one. Spence is toy mad and food mad so training is coming along nicely on everything but the leash walking.

    Thank you all. He's an absolute sweetheart. Needs to learn some self control, not everyone we see wants Labby hugs and kisses, but I'm sure this will come with some training.

    Welcome to the forum. I am sure that the pulling will eventually work itself out. Jack pulled quite a bit when he was young and I remember thinking that it was not much fun going for a walk but it eventually was okay and I don't even remember how we worked that out so I am not much help. He is a beautiful little boy and he will be great company for you.
