Today my lab is having her second jab and therefore it won't be long until we take her for her first walks. How far should we walk her or for how long

How old is the lab?

I would say a lot of short walks would be best at this point. Go as many times as you can around a 2-3 blocks. The first time you go you might not even get to the end of one block. It takes a bit to get use to some catch on easier than others. Let the dog judge how far you go, but for now I wouldn't go too much further than 3 blocks and then you can come home and go back out in 10 mins if you wanted. :)
