    Wait until you are %100 happy with obedience first. You have plenty of time before spring to build a very solid foundation which will benefit you more than trying to rush things.

    Not sure where Kelloggs are being credited for pointing labs. I Don't have Kellogg in ANY of my dog's pedigrees yet my dogs that are out of 4GMPR parents point well and retrieve well. Myth busted.
