Obedience training at an early age when your Labrador retriever is at a size you can manage fairly easy is very important.  The time you spend in training your dog will establish a strong bond between you and your dog.   This will result in your dog being very loyal to you and obedient to your commands.

It is recommended you spend an hour a day playing and training your Labrador due to their energy level.   They are very playful and without a sufficient outlet to release this energy your Lab will probably get into trouble.  Take advantage of your dog natural retriever attributes and playfulness teaching him to fetch and come.  A small Frisbee, flying disc, or tennis ball can be tossed beyond your dog and it will be natural for him to retrieve the object.   Once he gets the object in his mouth, give the command “Come”.  When he brings the object to you reward him for a job well done.  You and the dog will enjoy this game of fetch frequently.

You need to follow a prescribed training program if you are doing Labrador training at home. It is best to use a program that emphasizes working with your dog’s emotions.
