hi everyone i just got a 3 month old blk lab i know they are very smart dogs.i just need some pointers on training her you know the basic commands.so if anyone has some pointers it would really help cause i am new to the breed .thanks hope to hear from you guys ..
Just to add to the sentiment. Training classes is also a must for the socialization. I would also suggest trying to go to a class that has different breeds as well, not just Labradors so that they can experience all kinds of different temperaments.
I agree with the above posts pertaining to the importance of training classes for socialization. It now depends which you would prefer...
to sign up your pup for an Obedience School, which would help your Lab to get socialized in a group setting, (It's also a great way to meet new people yourself). Or...Hiring a personal trainer. They are good for one on one, personalized type training.
Here's some info on both that you should know before making the choice.
