so this morning I took the ladies to go and meet rochester and put a deposit on the lil' bastard.

we got to see the pups in the flesh though they weren't doing much at 4 weeks, just stumbling about and trying to see.
a bit like I was two hours beforehand.

didn't get to meet the daddy puppy but he's some 4 times blue ribbon champ or some shit, so I wasn't too bothered.
the mummy puppy was fucking ferocious.
have a look at the death glare... I always knew this kid was mine.

question:

I guess it's time to start nesting for this horrible shit.
what do I need besides a bed, food, lead, chew toys and a rolled up newspaper to beat him with?

payment:

get a kennel - the type that you haul dogs around in cars.

Make that his "home". In time, he'll go right to it when he wants some alone time.

BTW, for some reason puppies really love to chew the crotch out of female panties,
so has the lasses keep their undies picked up....

Get the book "Family Dog" by Richard Wolters. It will give you a wk by wk guide to socializing the pup. It also shows you how to train the pup in the basics, sit/heel/here. There will be a list of essentials listed in the book. If you want the pup to be a hunter, get "Water Dog". Same basic stuff just shows you more of the training to make the pup a hunter.

This is an easy article on crate training. It is a must in my opinion.

http://www.retrievertraining.net/crate/kennel.htm

Also, CreekStone, Wolters' writing on dog training isn't worth the match it takes to burn it. Let's just say that the training has come a long way since he wrote that stuff.

Solid advice, there.

Yeah, and it's something that no ones been able to break me of either...

Seriously, good move Shawn... I bet the ladies just love the little guy. And, you too.

General, in regards to basic obedience and socialization I think your wrong. If your talking about advanced field retriever training yeah Id have to agree that Rex Carrs program used and improved upon by Mike Lardy is/was the most widely used training program back in the day. Just not sure that's what shunned was looking for. I'd love to hear about how it's being done now. Got any book/program references?

Get a kennel, no question about it. Go ahead and get one that will accomodate him when he's fully grown. It's the only way to fly. If you want some more info on kennel training shoot me a pm, I'll be happy to share what I know about it.

Yes and YES! This is the way to train a dog without treats or shock collars or such BS. At the very least get the book and give it a read.

I guess I gotta come in on teh side of Water Dog here. IF you want to hunt test, or Field Trial, there are without a doubt some more current manuals out there, but honestly, if your gonna feed and shovel after a lab, you need to read it. It's like Trout Bum or The Sun Also Rises. it may not have anything to do with what you want to involve yourself in, but it remains required reading. I just re-upped myself.
