New pup training...

  1. Hey guys,
    I just got a new 7 week old Purebred AKC Lab yesterday. I am planning on training him for the field. So, aside from being a family companion, but can assist me on my Dove, and waterfowl hunts ( and be my fishin' buddy ). I've trained dogs to sit, lay, shake, stay ( basic commands ). But, never for the field. My question is does anyone know any websites with tips, and techniques? My grandfather could train a bird dog like noones business ( hes no longer here ). And a friend of mine trained his GSP by watching dvds. Sounds funny, but it worked because his GSP is a GREAT loyal upland game bird dog. Any help will be appreciated.

    ( Also his name is Gunner, and I will be posting pictures soon )
