So i get my 8 week old Black Lab on Friday and i just have a few questions to make sure im as ready as i can be.
Should you start brushing their teeth from an early age? or is it just when there adult teeth come through? I have heard bones are enough as well to clean there teeth and you dont actually have to brush them then.
I have read so many different topics about washing your dog and not washing your dog how often do you guys bath your dogs?
I am going to be clicker training my pup and i think im going to use one of his meals to do it instead of giving him 3xmeals + treats, don't want to give him too much food, Do you think that is ok to do? Most likely his first meal of the day.
I think thats all the questions i have at the moment but im sure something else will pop up.
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for such a quick reply and yes that helps alot!
I ise knuckle bones to clean my dog's teeth, and they are pearly white, whether 11 months or 13 years old.

Labby's are very clever little things, my Lilee is just 8wks and already she's learnt to come, sit and put her paw up on my hand...of course she's rewarded with extra kibbles : ) I never cleaned my other labs teeth but I too gave them knuckle bones. Totem's teeth were quite yellow but as you know she was nearly 17...Cade's are still are nice white with a little yellow around a few. Im not bothered as I know they're healthy Labs overall.
I can't wait to see a photo of your new pup...he'll look so different to Lilee as she's a yellow Lab.
Friday will come around super fast Adam!
