There is no way I can teach dog training in a few words. But I guess I'll try. Dogs are not retarded children. They are aware of things that we are not. A 70 pound dog can intimidate a 300 pound human. They are our friends. They are not things we own.

Hun, I have a bred hunter in my dog family eoo. . . When young she loved to "chew" on my fingers. Even now that she is 8 years old she will still put my fingers in her mouth, just doesnt want to chew on them anymore. Be happy if your couch survives. . . I left for work one day to come home to it being demolished with my first Akita. Second one, that didn't happen but hunny was retired and there was much more discipline with this one.

Arctic, actually I never thought that they guy would actually give my son such an expensive dog for free so I didn't think much about it until he was on his way here with Leon

My Lab chewed my dining room chairs and leather couch. I am with Leon constantly. I've learned that out of sight for 2 minutes means he's peeing or chewing something.

Our lab, English chocolate, came from a breeder in northern Louisiana. We had him flowen to Alaska at 10 weeks old. At that time the wife and I were working rotational jobs, 3 on 3 off. I took 9 weeks off work and stayed home with the mutt. I took him outside every hour on a leash, he never had an accident in the house. After awhile he'd fetch the leash when he wanted to go out.
Before I went back to work I found a boarding kennel that also trained labs. The first 6 years of his life he was trained for hunting (retrieving), field trials and discipline. After that we hired a live-in doggy babysitter so he could stay home (it was also cheaper). He very seldom chewed on anything, especially us. Somehow he did learn to take us by the hand in his mouth and lead us to something he wanted, or away from danger. He had a bad experience with one of our old range cows a couple of years ago, so now if there's any cows around he gets nervous and tries to lead us away.

Yes, my Retrievers were so different. I had a Golden that found a baby bird and gently carried it to me. We kept the bird and it would fly from me to my daughter. Then my husband came home from a trip and let the cat get to it. All we found was a feather, which I still have. I have never seen a child cry so hard. We still call her dad "Tweety Murderer".
