Puppy training info

Postby ChasinTail » Mon Dec 23, 2013 11:53 pm

What are one good early training DVDs or books? Or even better some free detailed info online. I've been reading over the post in the Stickied threads but I feel I need more.

Picked up a lab puppy for free so who knows if she's even got the drive in her for it. It'll be my first time training. I've got a buddy who's got a 6mo old pup that he's training and doing great. He'll show me some stuff. What do you all think? Think I can make her into a retriever?

Btw I picked her up yesterday, she's 6 and a half weeks old. Read the thread about the 6 week old yellow lab and Learned the negatives of her being so young so I called and I'm taking her back tomorrow and letting her stay for another 3 weeks. They still have two pups left that they're keeping that she can socialize with.

I highly recommend Bill Hillmanns training a retriever puppy DVD. Worked wonders with my dog.

X2 on the Hillmann puppy DVD. However, if you don't want to spend that, you can't go wrong with Sound Beginnings by Jackie Mertens.
