    Default New RTF Member and soon to be retriever owner

    Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Justin and I am new to this forum. I have been doing some research trying to find lab breeders in my area and I have continually ran into information on this site. I hope to find a pup this spring/summer but I am trying to obtain as much knowledge as possible in the mean time. I am looking for a dog that will join me in the duck blinds on the weekends and this site seems like a good place to start for training both me and the dog.

    If anyone has any tips for a total newbie on finding and training a pup in the western pa area please let me know. I have seen a few of the retriever clubs in my area and will be looking more into those.

    Welcome to the RTF Justin,
    some nice litters can be seen here on the adds section. seems a lot of folk like those Labs.
    and some fun reading about dogs, training and what you can buy can be found clicking the above banners.
    good luck with the search, west pa. should be easy. Lotta crazy retriever folk down there.

    I just googled Poughquag to see how far you are from west Pa.
    do you ever train or go to tests at Stewart Airport?
    or go over east to Simsburry, CT.

    Welcome to RTF. You will find a lot of useful information and most likely even people in your area that will help you.
    Enjoy the resource. It would be most helpful if you put your location in your profile.
