As some of you know from some of my other posts I will be looking for a new lab pup soon. My 13 yr old lab will need to be put down soon due to cancer. I have been looking at breeders, pedigrees, etc. and have narrowed the search down to a couple of places.
How or what is your procedure when picking up a dog? I am looking for a duck hunting lab that is mellow and good with the kids. I got very lucky when I picked out my last dog with no experience other than we picked him out of the group because he was the only one to pay attention to a phesant wing on a string and stayed focused. What other tricks of the trade will increase my chances of picking the right dog from a litter on pick up day?
Thanks in advance,
