Do you start training your pup as soon as he arrives home or do you wait until he is 6 months old?
There seems to be arguments for both schools of thought and a lot may depend on your aims and objectives and your circumstances.
What is important for my 10 week old labrador, Reggie, is to work on creating a trust and bond between us. I want to keep it fun, upbeat, and enjoy ourselves in the early days. This involves time, commitment and energy. My passion for gun dogs will help build a good foundation for us and encourage this little chap to respond positively to his new environment.
By having a clear understanding of how to behave and respond to Reggie I will hopefully stimulate the behaviours I want and prepare both of us for the exciting journey ahead....
