Have a 10yr old thinking of a new lab pup
Ok guys here it goes..... I unfortunately I had to put my 131/2 year old black lab Yukon down 4-5 months ago and we miss him more than words can describe. He was the best all around dog I have ever had. We still do have our 10 year old yellow lab kody and this dog is also a great dog and he is absolutely spoiled. My problem is my sons are getting older and love to hunt and we dont realy have a hunting dog. Kody is getting older and is pretty much a house dog for the wife now. I'm sure I could get him in shape enough to go out a little but he would probably suffer quit a bit.
So what our thought is to get another black lab pup. I really want to train this new pup to be the ultimate retriever to work off of hand signals and so on. I trained Yukon to do all of this but slacked on kody and that's where my problems arise......
How hard will it be to train a pup for all of that around a old pup that wasn't?
What are your guys recommendations???????
Also what training videos do you guys recommend?
