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.
