He knows when to mellow out when I need him to and when he be OMG HYPER PUPPEH!!>!>! But as far a him maturing into one, he came with. Most Labs I've been around have them, you just gotta work their minds a little bit or even take the edge off with 15-40 minutes of fetch and good to go.
But also keep in mind Outlaw is a field bred Lab and this is not the "norm" for them, I went to a hunting breeder because I wanted a certain look and energy level and got what I wanted. A bench bred Lab will have the right amount of energy, but has a better off switch
That's great! I love Outlaw. And I can't believe he's only 4 months! Big boy, lol.
I'm laughing at myself using Millie as an example being a herding mix vs. a lab. Her other part is lab.
But in temperament is much more BC.
Anyway, yeah, I think a lab could be really good for you, Paige.
