I would like to get a lab for waterfowl hunting, my big question is can I get one this fall so its ready by next season, or would it be best to wait until spring and miss out on a season? Thanks

Why wait? Get one this fall and then get the basic obedience commands down before next fall. He will be somewhat ready, but generally their rookies the first time out, and I wouldnt expect to much, let them have fun and get the smells down

My dog was born in March and his first season he was only six months. I think that is a perfect age for a first season. by the end of the season he was doing very well and his second season was GREAT! This season looks to only be better.

I like the spring pups myselfe. Either way, put the time in and you will get what you want.

Start looking now and take your time to find the right dog for yourself and your family. A dog house, a kennel, and all sorts of things are needed. If you spend some time you can get things ready before the pup arrives and maybe help create a Christmas list for yourself.

Read up on the breed, various breeders claims etc. Go to a field trial or training session and ask around who may have a pup you'd be interested in. Don't go and look at a litter until you're ready cause chances are you're coming home with a dog.
