    Any advice any one can give on anything is much appreciated.... I know nothing about Labs and will learn by trial and error I guess lol. Thinking about getting medical ins for him because I have a feeling he is gonna eat something that will make him sick. My wife payed a little over $3K for him and shipped him from Indianna. I dont want to know where she got the money LOL

    I like the book "Water Dog" it has a lot of info in it. I have a ton of pheasant and quail wings in my freezer if you want them. They work great on a fishing pole, strapped to toys, hide and seek etc. I live in El Cajon shoot me a message.

    Bring him up to our kennel in Mesa Grande after the first of the year and when he has all his shots and we'll give you advice and thoughts about how to train as well as let him play with a live bird (No charge)

    What a great offer. Tips from a pro are invaluable.

    As mentioned, get him kennel trained pretty quickly.

    congrats on the new pup...

    if its going to hunt i strongly suggest the video series Fowl dogs program
    http://www.gundogsupply.com/fowl-dogs-dvd-set.html

    follow it and be amazed at what you can do

    as a side note you will be saying "good boy" with a Minnesota accent in no time

    will you be getting hair dye to make him black?

    Congrats on the new pup! The offer from Snake Charmer is a good one. I train there often with my dogs and this would be a good introduction to live birds with a trainer on hand.
