Does anyone here have an LABRADOR? I just got my labrador today, our Good Neighbor just hand it over to us. Does anyone here could give me an advise? I know I could just search this in google, But I want to hear first hand from those who had this specific dog breed.

Take the Lab to a training group so you can learn from them.

Labs are strong dogs that are still dogs so behaviour is difficult to say as they are all different. The previous owner must have spoken to you about him/her before giving you the dog, right? They need at least one hour of walking a day, I walk mine a little longer but that's because he is part Border Collie and so is much more energetic then a normal Labrador.

Ok, that helps. 5 Weeks is very soon for a puppy to be separated from the mother, they don't need walks at that age just follow the recommended vaccines at the recommended time, talk to a Vet and I would talk to the neighbour and other dog professionals (forums and such)

He is much to young for me to help you out. I had my dog when he was 8 weeks old, we kept him on puppy milk and small dog kibbles. I'm not too sure what else I can say really, I'm just speaking from a small amount of experience.



Well thanks I would buy some milk and kibbles tomorrow for him. Well now we just played and he kept on chasing me and cuddling me. My problem now is that he pee and poo in our carpet. Can 5 weeks old labrador can be trained already?
