Thanks

For starters, get this book:


That page also lists several other good books on Labs, too.

Good luck with your new Lab!

Jack already sent book links, so that's a good start. Depending on what you want from your dog (companion, hunting partner, etc), finding a good trainer (puppy class, basic obedience, field training) is something to do now as well.

Indeed! But where is the breeder to answer some of these questions?

If anyone is thinking of getting a puppy, it's best to find out about training etc before you buy it.
