I have a Lab named Guinness we got him as a 10 week old puppy 5 yrs ago. He was amazingly easy to train. Potty trained in one week learned simple commands quickly. Never destroyed anything. We were told he was an exception to the rule for Labs being how calm and mellow he was as a puppy. He loves training and we are currently preparing him to become a therapy dog.
Now our baby bully Fergus cutest thing in the world to me but oh my god... its like night and day in the training. Its not that he is stupid he is actually very smart but soooo stubborn . Luckily he is very food motivated so I use a lot of training treats. Still working on the potty training, has done great with the crate and sleeping thru the night, the walking on a leash is a work in progress he sits mid walk and refuses to move so we go a little further down the street every day lol. If he really refuse to walk I usually pick him up its going to be interesting once he gets bigger. Hopefully he will learn to love going on walks soon. The teething is a nightmare they have mouthful of needles and he has a taste for human flesh. Fergus also every night has a spazz attack where he goes nuts for about 30 mins running around chasing an invisible monster and usually runs towards my legs and goes all Tasmanian devil on me .
But I wouldn't change a thing he makes me laugh so much more then my lab as a puppy. He is funny, loves to cuddle, give me the most amazing puppy kisses. I know he will be perfect once he grows out of the puppy stage.
