One thing that I think is a major factor a young pups life is spending as much time with him as possible. He is not just a retriever but a friend. The more time you spend with him in the yard or other places where he can run around and be happy with you, the more you will understand him and the more he will understand you. I have two labs and they go alot of places with me just to let them get out of the kennel for a while to do thing other than retrieving, that way they enjoy making you happy because you make them happy. Now there will be days where one of them just does not want to work, there is no need to loose your cool because tomorrow is another day. There is probably days when you dont want to work. I agree with what one of the others guys said, some of them just do have it. Be your dogs friend and he will be yours. Happy training!
