Hello all, just got my black lab (named: "Pup") 4 days ago. My last dog was an English Bulldog and he died about 2 months ago after 14 years with me.
He's 4 years old and is a hand full... I have alot of work to do with him, but what a great-dog!! Never owned a lab. before and noticed they're unlike any of the other dogs (boxer, cocker spaniel, german shepard, dashound) I've ever had it the past!!
In the last 2 days, he got food off the counter (Box oatmeal cookies, 3/4's loaf of Rye Bread, and some peanut and chesse crackers) while I was not home. Finally, stopped him from dragging me down the street during our walks (got the "proper" collar to begin training him with...).
I can see this is gonna be a "FUN" 1-2 months of training him, or should I say "him" training me?
Looked at some of the training post's on this site and it is a GREAT site... and will probaly have to use some the the "expierence" contained within this site... thanks!!!
