Well went and picked me up a 9 month old lab pup for 20 bucks today. She loves the water and plays fetch so I believe she has drive. But I am goin to try and train her myself. Hope I dont screw up!

That is awesome! Let us know how it goes and what you learn from the training.

I want to get a dog but will have to wait until the baby gets a little older. Have our hands full with a newborn right now.
One of the greatest skills you can develop is the ability to ignore those that annoy you...

I know how that goes. Would love for this one to be an inside dog but my daughters little rat terrier doesnt like the lab and I'm afraid the lab would accidentally get to rough with my 2 1/2 year old daughter.

well every couple of hours we go out and work for about 15 to 20 minutes. we work on sit heel and my word to get her to come to me is Here. After about 4-5 time she has picked up all 3 real quick. I do keep her on a 6 foot leash for now why we work though. Any ideas or advice on doing it this way?

Check out Hunting Retriever Club website and see if there's a club in your area. If not consider buying Mark Lardy or Evan Graham training material. You get so much out of training group and benefit from others successes and struggles.

Good luck on your journey, use lots of praise and stick to your standards.
