I have just recently started myself as a trainer for my own dogs. i do not want somebody else to do it, i want that bond between me and my Lab. He is 9 months old, can sit, stay, place, laydown, kennel up, retrieve bumpers just fine and we are working on live birds as of this upcoming weekend. Do you think i should be pushing more things for him to do or is he right on track to becoming a good hunting partner ???
