This training should include the usual puppy training, and if you are going to use your Labrador puppy for hunting or finding birds then specialized training for these activities are needed.

 Puppy training is an essential part of owning a puppy, but the training methods used should always be appropriate and include positive reinforcement, never hitting or fear based techniques, as this will make training more effective and give better results.

Training a puppy requires patience and self control, and if you start to get frustrated or angry, then the puppy training session should stop and play should be done instead.

Trying to train your puppy when you are not calm will not be effective because your puppy will pick up on your feelings and get agitated.

Labrador puppy training can ensure that your puppy is well behaved and knows what is expected of them. Puppies are like children, and they need routines and rules.

If the puppy has a routine then it makes training much simpler. It is important to always supervise your puppy unless they are in the crate, because household chemicals, electrical cords, and other hazards can be dangerous around your puppy.

Obedience training will help your puppy understand commands including sit, stay, come, and heel, so that your puppy acts accordingly when you give a command.

Labrador puppy training should include potty training, crate training, chew toy training, and obedience training. All of these are crucial to a happy and well adjusted puppy, and a house that is clean and not chewed.

Puppy training is essential for all puppies regardless of what breed they are, and this training should be started between six and eight weeks old to guarantee the best success.

This does not mean an older Labrador dog can not benefit from training, however it may take longer for the older dog to learn. Patience is the key to any puppy training, and if you do not have this

 then a professional might be a better option for training your puppy. Puppy training can be an enjoyable event with your dog, if positive reinforcement is used and training sessions are followed by play time.
