I have been training a lab puppy ~5 months old for about a month now just obedience, fetching, swimming, shooting my shotgun around her. I believe she is a lab/pit mix (95%) but I got her on unexpectedly so I can't be for sure. She has done great at everything so far so I am pretty excited.
I have a couple questions I would like to get some opinions on. First, she is only 30 pounds now and I am starting to worry she is only going to make it to probably 40 pounds. What are yall's opinion arounds a dog that small doing a lot of water retrieves (she likes to swim and seems good at it). I also was wondering how I could introduce her to some fresh dead game since it is not close to any season... She likes to retrieve the dummie but I don't want her first time feeling out a dead bird (or still sorta alive) on the first morning of the season.
