Bringing home a new Lab pup this week. I have read Game Dog by Richard Wolters and done a pile of reading on the internet. And while im sure the subject of which training program to use for a hunting dog is controversial. Im curious on what programs others have used, because of the differences i have come across in my research of the subject. Couple of key things have been Wolters, recommends playing fetch in the house with the pup and doesn't recommend praising the dog except when you intially get the pup to understand the lesson being taught after that recommends not to praise the pup till the session is over. Any input would be appreciated.
