black lab

  1. Hello!

    Attention All New Members
    Hi, I'm Penny, a soon to be puppy owner! I'm looking at getting a black lab pup, male, in 7 weeks (I just went to see him - 12 days old!) It's my first puppy although we did have a female black lab when I was growing up. My main worry that I need sorting before I commit to the puppy is this -...
  2. On / Off Lameness

    Dog Health Questions
    Hello. My first question in this forum! I have a 6 month old black lab at home. Since we brought him home he has had on/off periods of lameness....

    Dog Training Forum
    I have a 9 month old Black Lab/Plott hound mix. Lately, he's been becoming aggressive towards me while walking him on the leash. He'll either try to bite at my ankles or begin biting the leash and pulling away from me and when I reel him in he begins to mouth me. At first, he never bit hard...

    First Time Dog Owner and Basic Questions
    I have just been kind of surprised with an 8 week old black lab/german shepherd mix. I have her for the next month. I'm trying to train her in all possible ways, and so far it's going okay I suppose. I'm going to have to house break her and teach her not to bite, but that looks like it's...
  8. Help with Black Lab!

    Dog Health Questions
    Hi all, My 10 year old black lab is dry heaving. This lasted a couple minutes. He also seems to not be drinking as much water. I believe this may stem from him swallowing a large piece of rawhide (a christmas present). I am desperate for any advice!
