There *might* be a reason some are afraid to post about anything that relates to training.

I can feel their pain...back in 2003 I was in their shoes but I managed to live through it;)

I'll start it off... I'm Andrew and new around here. I am expecting my first pup on June 23rd. I've been reading a lot of great info on training from a lot of knowledgeable trainers and look forward to working with my first retriever. Thanks for all the tips and keep them coming!

Many of those "guests" are probably members who just didn't sign/log in.
That could be....but if you aren't logged in ya can't post.

Either way where I feel the new blood is needed is in the ranks of the "poster".

I get my 10 month old golden back from the trainer in a week. So, I imagine I will start having some questions as I continue her training.

Greetings from MN. I'm new this month. We had to put our yellow down last October (11.5 y/o male). We are awaiting our new pup in June.

One of the reasons I don't post is because the pup we are getting is a British Lab. I've seen what happens when you mention "British" on here. The can of worms gets opened!

I do love all the training info on here. It's been a long time since I trained a lab, so any and all info is great!

John, When you start taking the time to answer newbie questions thoughtfully, fairly and respectfully......well, um,.....I'll have to see it to believe it...

Or, do you mean by "New Blood".....your needing to suck the life from some newbies?

BPVigs where are you getting your pup from? I am getting mine from Shannon Brown in International Falls, MN. I am also getting him in June and thought maybe we were getting them from the same litter.
