Training Your Labrador: Tips and Advice for Training Your Lab

Updated on October 19, 2008

Training Labradors is Easier than You Think

Thanks for coming! This Hub is all about helping you Train your Labrador Retriever.

Labrador retrievers are easy to train because they are not only intelligent, but they are incredibly eager to please you. Once you have established yourself as the alpha dog, meaning that you have taught your labrador that you are in control, you have set yourself up for one of the best person-to-dog relationships possible.

Training a labrador is much easier than training many other types of dogs-- since your lab's greatest ambition is to please you, it doesn't take him or her long to understand exactly how to do that as long as you use effective methods of training. And lucky for you, those methods are what I'm planning on searching far and wide for so that I can share them with you.

Labradors are not particularly dominant and they are almost always very gentle, making them perfect for just about any situation, whether it be training for a real job or just a family pet.

So if you have labradors, enjoy labradors, or just like the way labs look, this is the place for you. I will be adding new information, tips, and cool stuff here little by little about training labs, so be sure to check back so you don't miss out. :)

Let me know about your own labs in the comments section below. Training tips and advice is on the way-- Thanks for coming!

P.S. -- My new blog,, has some really cool training tips and videos that you might want to check out if you're serious about wanting to train your labrador.
