Sounds fun, can't wait to get time to get out. How old is your lab? Ours is going on 2 but still acts like she's 6 months and won't sit still long enough to think about taking her out.

Tanner is 2 1/2 and this is her second season I waited because I didn't think she was mature enough 3 seasons ago,,glad I did the only real trouble I have with her is she's SOOO wound up ,to go she whines while I'm getting ready ,but today to her credit didn't bark when she first spotted the geese,man was it hot though!!!.Felt like jumping in myself!

Yea Avery is super wound up as soon as she gets outside. She does seam to listen better when I get her away from the house and back to the pond. I might take her out in a few weeks, but I'm not jumping in freezing cold water in January to get her if she doent listen and gets in trouble out in the water.

I was worried about her because she's also a pet inside so not a thick tough coat but ,she's been out all day in 20 degrees and swam in 11 degrees no problem
