In The Beginning

In The Beginning

Labradors continually amaze their owners with what they can do. On average, they are very easy to train especially when you understand their character a little more.

Even though they have a tremendous capability for learning, it's always best to start out with some good Labrador training techniques. Starting with some basics will help you on your Labrador understand each other. The more your dog knows and learns, the more they will become a fine member of the family.

First, use patience when ever dealing with your Labrador. I'm not only talking about those times of formal training sessions with your dog but anytime and anywhere. Your Labrador will respond better if you remain calm during your training. Probably the most important factor providing this result will be a continuous use of patience. Your Labrador will do almost anything to get a biscuit.


Poppy is so keen to please all of the time. During training sessions she would repeat her entire repertoire of tricks if she didn’t understand what I wanted her to do just so she could get the biscuit that was in my hand.

Keep your training sessions short. Poppy would loose interest if the training went on for longer than 20 minutes. After each training session she would sleep for hours. It’s a really good way of giving your lab a mental workout.
