Hello everyone! I found this site after I acquired my beautyful girl. I got her at 3 months old. Shes a black lab named Jenny.(The name came to me after watching forrest Gump lol!!!!) I drove about 100 miles to get her, i was looking to adopt but the dogs in the shelter were mostly pit mixes. My hoa doesnt allow them. The breeder was leaving the next day back to Tallahasse (sp?) and two others that were interested stood her up, LUCKY ME!!!!!!!!!!! What is suprising to me after reading almost all the posts on this site ,and the difficulty of raising labs from others, I must be lucky. I started crateing her the first day, she loves it. She obeyed sit and down commands without treats almost instantly. I just bought a house in Boynton Beach Florida, with a good size back yard and i have no problems leaveing her loose,(when im there), she comes to me when i call her everytime.I am so glad that I found this site, The info I get is priceless and I hope to be a part of your community for a long time. I will post pics soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Welcome Dave and Jenny! Nice to have you! You know, I think all Labs go through different phases. I have 2 adults and a pup right now. They have all gone through different stages and lapses in training. Sounds like you two are off to a great start with training and bonding. Take a look around, you will find lots of good info here! Look forward to pics!
Welcome to the forum! I do agree with Choco4me about the stages these pups go through, (my puppy, Bunny, is in one right now ) so I wouldn't count yourself out of the woods yet. Good luck with your puppy, pictures are a must!
