Hey guys, this is my first post I mostly just read and look at pictures. I just put a deposit on my new hunting partner, a female British Lab. I was wondering what yall would recommend for some good training videos or books?

I would suggest getting Bill Hillman's dvd Training a Retriever Puppy. Bill has an informative web site and face book page.

As they say "You Tube is your friend" There is a guy on there, I think his name is Freddy??? He has a good step by step method, Freddy King, check him out.

My lab, Jessie is 14 weeks old, we have been in a 6 week "manners" class, getting basic obedience, socialization, etc. There are about 5-6 dogs in it, the trainer goes over lessons, we do them through the week, review and learn more. We have been doing fun retrieves in the back yard, I started shooting a cap gun while we are doing these fun retrieves, now I'm using .22 crimp blanks and she's doing great.

Bird wing on a string is next with some longer marks, REALLY stressing "HERE". will use a 30ft check cord.

Takes allot of time but your pup will worship the ground you walk on!!!
