Picked up a 7 month old BLF with excellent pedigree.
Very little obedience has been done with her.
Pup has lot of drive.
Here is the problem: if you hold her by the collar or lead and throw a mark and then release on her name she doesn't know what to do !!! But if you just say hey hey and throw a mark with no restraint she hauls butt !!
Brings bumper back to hand !! But throw a duck and she will retrieve and then go the opposite direction !!
I've trained several labs from pups but never starting at 7+ months
What are the positives and negatives ??
Suggestions ???????? I know to basically start from scratch but please give some tips.
Thank you for our help.
