Oh I like that idea of having another toy! Her name is Bennie, cause we use Benelli guns and one of our favorite songs is Bennie and the Jets

I have input her parents into k9data-
if you will post her registered name, DOB, and we know call name is 'bennie'- and also breeder name, someone can make her a k9data page. I can check back after the dog show this afternoon in case no one has done it yet. Once the month rolls over, I can use my BOM bucks to get a full pedigree for k9data and then her page will be complete and you can see her pedigree.

I would highly suggest following Bill Hillmann's puppy program if you want to do this yourself.

Labrador Retriever Puppy Training - Hawkeyemedia - Training a Retriever Puppy

Yes, the DVD is expensive, but worth it. Your pup will be ready for more Hillmann, Lardy, Graham, etc or send to a pro once you finish it.

For young puppies, Jackie Merten's DVD, Sound Beginnings, provides a very good start. Jackie Mertens

Hillmann's stuff is very good, and Bill's success as a Derby Dog trainer cannot be disputed. (But OMG, Hillmann's DVD is ... ummm ... pretty boring.)

Yes, I guess it can be boring. I think it is much more comprehensive than Sound Beginnings though.

I was going to suggest Sound Beginnings because they've never trained a retriever before but figured the real experts here would have better suggestions. I think there is something about Jackie's video that really takes those first steps down to the most absolute basic level that someone just beginning all by themselves can do it. You really can follow her and understand having never done training before. It's not intimidating at all.

If interested in the referenced (or other) DVDs, you can frequently find good used copies over on RetrieverTraining.net, under Classifieds Gear/Equipment. But as mentioned earlier, the very best way to learn how to train a retriever is to find a club or a successful mentor to guide you along.
If you are a member of the GRCA, you can find helpful resources, including clubs, on the website. Also, the Field Education Committee of the GRCA has a Facebook page where you can often find interesting training information (I believe you must be a GRCA member to participate on the Facebook page).

Can't help it but...

I watch Hillmann's DVD when I have trouble falling asleep. Outside of that, he has my respect. I do own one of his DVDs. And his stuff is excellent.

Go to YouTube and look for Dog Trainers Workshop. That's Connie Cleveland. Wonderful obedience and field trainer. She has fabulous little videos for puppies. Great ideas on the kinds of games to play too.

I would always have a long line on your pup. Something you can get ahold of. For instance if you throw something and you want them to bring it back, just reel them in and tell them they are such a great puppy. They'll get the hint to come back. At first the item they went to get is their prize. So you have to convince them to bring the item back. With a baby puppy, I would use a very light weight cord.
