First working lab.

Postby Coot cluck clan » Thu Jan 23, 2014 8:36 am

So I'm getting a Labrador retriever in a couple months or so and I'm wanting to train it for waterfowl. I've purchased several books and DVDs. I was just wondering if anyone could give me some tips. This will be my first lab to train for hunting. I've had two labs but just for family pets.

I was going to wait a while to start putting this out there, but now seems like it could be the right time. I have a project you might be interested in following... and I hope I don't get in trouble for promoting a business in here, but this might be very beneficial.

I run a small kennel and we have just purchased a new female pup a month ago. The intent of doing so was to add a final breeding female to our group, but more importantly to show the training progression for at least an entire year of 1 dog. That is - how to take an 8 week old pup and turn them into a dog ready to hunt. If your interested, I'll PM you the link as I think posting a unsponsored business is a bit of a no-no. (Someone correct me if I'm wrong and I'll put it up in a new thread.)

Our blog could help give a real jump start to your training when get your pup. Hope that helps!

I'm a little confused on what your saying. I understand that you have a young female pup and going to train her, but I guess my question is what exactly are you wanting lol

My suggestion would be read your books and watch the DVD's and then ask some specific questions.

Freddy King did this. To the OP. type in "Feddy King" retriever training. I watched these before I even had my pup and I am going to start watching them again. Freddy king shows you the steps with a dog with zero training. All the way through. Also I have fowl dogs and duck dog basics.

Can't see "Freddy King" without thinking of this one:



Love that pup all you can while you can.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.
