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.
Welcome to JL !
I first met Spencer on Dogsey ! He's a handsome chap !
Small world the dog world eh ?
Welcome!! Spencer is a handsome pup!
~It doesn't matter how smart the dog is,it matters how smart the owner is.
Thank you. And hi Samson, small world indeed
Welcome and he is handsome looking..
The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!
Welcome to the forum! Spencer is a handsome boy with a winning smile! If you do a search on this site, you will find lots of helpful hints on leash training.

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.
