This is where we have compiled all of the resources that you need to start your Labrador Retriever off right. There are training videos that focus on the Labrador Retriever, food that focuses on the Labrador Retriever, and sports that your Labrador Retriever could really excel at. This page should get you and your pup started on a path to success.
First we want to share a video of a top trainer, Stonnie Dennis, from Kentucky Canine Training Center. He is down to earth and you can tell all of his dogs are well trained and responsive. This video focuses on Fitz, a young black lab that is being trained over a few months. Take a look for some helpful tips and ideas.
