      Hello Lab Lovers!

      I am new to this board. I recently adopted Finn, a very active, intelligent, fox red lab. At 14 weeks he is a handful. I hope to get ideas, reassurance, and support from this community. Looking forward to meeting you all.

      Hi, Adele and Finn...welcome!

      Pictures, please, when your post count is high enough (5, I think)...Finn sounds like someone we all want to meet.

      Welcome!! I think you are going to find most Labs can be a handful for quite some time. I'd highly recommend getting into a training class as soon as you can. The training will help bleed off energy and help you get Finn on the right course while he's still small.

      Welcome! Read the thread on the puppy training section on puppy biting. This was the one thing that stands out most. I would cry because I thought I would never bond with Mocha and he would be biting me all the time. This board really gave me some great suggestions. There are a lot of good threads in puppy training. Be patient and consistent.

      Welcome!

      I agree: early and consistent training is a must (ours started classes at about 12 weeks, I think, and was in classes until she was about nine months old). And power through. And photos!
