Hello everyone! I am from the Philippines and I hope to gain useful tips on how to take care of my soon to be puppy. This will be my first pet, therefore, I am extremely nervous.
Welcome to the forum. I am verry happy to welcome to the lab family soon, and I am pretty sure that you will be a good dog owner.
Take them out frequently and praise it for going potty outside....very soon after eating or drinking as their stomachs and bladders are small.
Accidents will happen inside, but scold dont punish.
Last but not least. Spend minimum of 15 minutes uninterrupted petting and talking to it. They will love you unconditionally if you show them love and kindness
I find Labs very intelligent docile and friendly dogs..they are obedient ( need to be trained though just like any other dog)...they would eat almost anything but let the vet decide the diet ...they can become obese pretty fast if you avoid taking them for walks...start with 1 km per day...and extend to max 3 km every day.
