I mainly just wanted to say hi to everyone, but I also have a quick question. I have a 6 month old black lab female and we are doing well, I think, considering this is my first duck dog I will be training on my own. My question is, is it normal for a dog of this age to go in and out of interest. At times she can be uninterested in training then an hour later she's begging me to go outside and play. She seems to be learning but it can be aggravating when I'm ready and she will not pay attention no matter what I do.
