So, I have been reading on these boards for months, finally decided to post. We have a yellow lab boy who will be 6 months on the 22 of July. His name is Kobe. We love him to pieces and just laugh at the things he does. We have an above ground pool in which he decides needs to be clutter-free every minute of the day, which includes the cholrine tablet container. He LOVES the pool, the kids swimming in it, everything about it. He is especially attached to my middle son who has had brain surgery for seizures. They fish, go to the park, swim do everything together. HOWEVER, I wish he would stop stealing and jumping. We are training him to stop, and he is sooo smart. Just wish it would happen soon, my favorite pair of shoes might not survive. LOL!
Welcome. Just keep it up. He'll get it. They are scary smart dogs.
Welcome! The key to getting them to stop stealing is to stop chasing them. It's no fun when you can't get the people riled up.

My boy will be 6 months August 8. The stealing! So funny, he gets a hold of something he's not supposed to and he'll run and run around the house like a regular clown. Chasing him makes him go faster. He also loves the pool and now has full confidence to jump in.
