    DefaultNew here!

    Hi everyone! ;D

    I'm so glad I found this board.* I just got my Lab...she's 18 months old and her name is Billie.* She's a rescue who was trained in one of the correctional facility programs, so she's very well housebroken and has basic commands but is VERY high energy (typical Lab baby, I know).* My family had Labs as hunting dogs when I was a kid, but I was really little when they were little so I didn't know this stage of their development and I'll probably be asking tons of questions about how to work with Billie...I'm already peppering my Dad, but his memory is spotty about how he used to get his dogs so well trained.* (BTW, her name is Billie for Billie Holliday - when you tell her to "sing the blues" she throws her head back and "sings".* VERY cute!)

    I've been lurking for a bit and I'm so impressed with everyone's posts and willingness to help...it's nice to know there's a network of people to talk to that have "been there and done that".*

    Looking forward to talking to ya'll,

    Leah

    Hello and Welcome Leah and Billie!!!

    That is so cute about the "singing"

    We aren't quite to the 18 month mark yet but I'm sure we'll be there before we know it so I'll be watching your posts questions and answers myself. ;D

    Oh my gosh Ender is so cute. Billie tips her head like that when I'm on my computer and the subwoofer on the floor pipes up. She particularly likes the racecar noises on Nascar.com.... ;D

    I'm going to post some stuff on the training forum right now. Stay tuned!!

    Welcome from WI!! Billie what a cutie! My Gia is 17mos old. It has only gotten easier for me. She is a great dog and she gives me no problems. Although she will be gone for about a month this summer for her second round( her first round was last summer for 6 weeks) of boot camp(thats what I call it) and some field training. She loves it!
