New Dog

I just got a new dog, a Lab/Husky mix... I don't have much experience with dogs but I'm pretty active and wanted a big dog to run with me during the summer. Any advice or tips you could give me?

How old is the dog?

If it is a puppy I recommend starting out in Puppy Classes as soon as the dog is eligible age-wise. If not, get into a few beginner obedience classes so the dog is actually ENJOYABLE to run with on leash.
Mine's 160 for 8 weeks. But it's worth it, especially with a dog whose two breeds can be rather tricky to deal with as adolescents.
