Boy does that bring back memories! Kid was 3 months old when I brought him home, he's now 14. My sons are 10 and 8 and they have been very close to Kid ever since they were old enough to crawl. The bond they both have with him is pretty special.

Enjoy every minute with that little puppy the time we have with them is much too short.

It's been a little over 2 years since we have had a dog, my last lab was 13. At the time it was a nice break, but now we are wondering how we went without one for so long!Housebreaking a lab isn't bad at all.

House breaking is easy if you do it right!!!

Our practice has been after any playtime in the house or if they are sleeping, as soon as they wake take them out. All in all I bet when we housebreak we have them out every half hour and they soon get the idea that outside is the only place they go to the bathroom. Housebroke our current dog in less then a week if I remember right

How do you teach them to go somewhere other than on the lawn? We live in the country so there's oodles of places to go but it seems like the lawn gets chosen plenty often!

"Google", "crate training" and you'll find a "myriad" of info. Those links can explain "crate training" better than I can and make it sound a whole lot better also!!! I've done it with 4 Labs now!!!
