Retriever Training HELP!!!!!
I recently got a black lab. Shes now 12 weeks old and has a lot to work on. Ive watched a couple of videos and Ive used that as something to go by. But, the dogs on the video learn in about a day. So, its really no help. Ill throw a bumper and she will run out grab the bumper, turn, and run away from me. I have tried using a checkcord but she lays down and I end up dragging her across the yard. I am trying to build her want to retrieve up to be an all time high. So, that leaves me with lots of questions. Is she too young? Do I need to do obedience training first instead? What should I do? I need all the help I can get so if you have some advice for me PLEASE share.
