    DefaultNew to the lab world

    Hi we are fairly new to Labrador world. Our labrador named Ella is very energetic and very friendly...too friendly....(jumps onto people she doesnt know).
    The only way how to prevent her from doing it so far is to tire her...for example by swimming in the ocean as she loves water....
    We posted a short video of her swimming in the ocean as you can see ..she has lots of energy

    Any tips how to stop her from doing it would be approciated.

    Kind regards
    Milos

    I would suggest to take her to obedience classes. You don't say how old she is, but mine is a year old and she is in classes and really is the star pupil, and I believe this is because she is a little older, even though I think she is the smartest dog in class . There are several opinions as to how to change this behavior. Labs are super smart and learn quickly, couple classes and she will have it down. It's always fun to show off how smart she is to people when she knows all of her commands. Good luck!
