Hello to all! I am glad to have found this forum as I am anxious to learn all I can about making my dog Beau a better companion and myself a better owner. Beau is a black Lab mix I got from the Humane Society in October, he is now 5 months old. My previous dog was also a Lab mix and Beau is only my second dog and I am ready to take his skills to a higher level than my previous dog. Beau looks all Lab but has more white on his chest than is allowed to be considered full Lab from what I have read. Anyway I will be asking question in the appropriate sections as I am far from an expert.
