      New Here & New to Labs

      Hi everyone. We will be brining home our new beautiful yellow lab (male) this Saturday. I have loved labs all my life and one is finally joining our family. Although my husband grew up with 2 labs and a golden, I am new to labs and big dogs in general (we have a 9 year old female yorkie/pomeranian). I've been educating myself on the breed since we decided to get one and I'm so happy I found this forum. Looking forward to getting to know all of you. I welcome any tips for a first time lab mom. Thanks.

      Hello and Welcome!

      You're in for the most wonderful ride of your life. It will be a little challenging at first so store up on plenty of sleep and patience.

      welcome and congrats

      I echo the patience and getting some extra sleep ahead of time I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend a good puppy class to get some support and a safe place to socialize your puppy beofre they haev all their shots. And maybe take a peeek at the puppy training advice to get an idea of issues most puppy owners run into
