    Hi Lord,

    I have two labs. They are two years old , this week

    I had a lab before this who was seven years old when he died in an accident. So I have had a lab for the last 11 years with two years gap.

    Labs are one of the most intelligent dogs on the planet. Just talk to them as if they know what you are saying and you will be surprised to find very soon that they do !!

    You can make them do anything you want. But I dont use my dogs as "show dogs". My first lab was one of the handsomest dogs you ever saw and everyone kept talling me to enter him in dog shows but for me it would have been like putting my children on display.

    So instead of teaching them tricks which only make the owner feel good in front of others, I prefer treating them like my children and they follow everything I say.

    We speak three different languages at home. Punjabi between me and my wife and my mother when she is visiting. English with my kids and friends and hindi with the help.

    They follow all three languages !!

    Without teaching them tricks, the type of tricks that people do like getting them to roll on the ground etc, I still find my friends absolutely amazed at how I can talk to them and they follow.

    I send them to call my wife or my cook and they go and bring them either by tugging at their hands or barking if they dont respond. This is just one thing. But believe me, I never taught them this. They just understand what I say.

    Try it and they will amaze you.

    I can send you other tips by e mail if you want.

    Wow sounds awesome.. i know they are very smart dogs and handsome no doubt i treat mine like my 2nd little brother.. sorry i shouldnt have said tricks.. as you mentioned they arent meant to be "show dogs" what i meant really was more along the commands line.. ie teaching them to come, stay - instead of pouncing on my friends and visitors..
    Did you train them at a very young age? what was your method of making them stay, fetch ?

    You can mail me sure

    Wow caeser looks great ! Labs look wonderful all the time but when they are pups they are just sooo adorable.

    I have a black male called Axel (actually Axel junior in the memory of my earlier dog who was named Axel by my son after Axel Rose) and the golden female is called Chicki (after the only girl I fell in love with) They are both from the same litter.

    I brought them home when they were 5 weeks old.

    Here are pictures of them when they were Caeser's age and on their birthday on 22nd of this month.

    You can wait another month or so. Get them house trained forst.

    Getting them to fetch things is not difficult but a bit tricky.

    Take a stick or a plastic pipe or a piece of garden hose and throw it away and shout fetch. Remeber to always use the same words for the same action. If you start saying sh** for fetch thats what they will think it means

    Dont confuse them at a young age with your vocabulary. Later they will understand more than one word for the same action but not yet.

    When you throw the stick, they will start running after it any way. Best is to go into a garden, and if you see him (sorry I keep using plural) pick up a stick, take it from him and throw saying fetch. Since you took it from him in the first place, chances are he will run after it anyway and pick it up.

    Now comes the tricky part. He will, in all probability think that taking the stick and keeping is the game so he will not give it to you and run away with the stick and expect you to chase him. He will love that. But if you want to teach him to fetch, you dont run after him.

    Be patient, keep talking him asking him in single one or two word commands to give it to you. After some time he will give or he will drop it some where nearby. The moment he gives it to you or drops it very close to you, give him a biscuit or something as a reward and always pat him and make him realise that he has done something that has made him happy.

    Give him the biscuit, pat his head and say good boy and when he has eaten his reward through the stick again and tell him to "fetch".

    Do not start any traing without a pocket full of rewards.

    Use a simple command, preferably a stern NO if he does something you just dont want him to do. NO is one of the first things you want to teach him. Good boy, come here, NO, Very bad etc are the words you use early. Important thing is to get your tone right. If you say Very Bad or Bad boy with sugar in your tone he will think he has done something you are mighty pleased with. Your happiness is what he wants. He will do everything to make you happy but he needs to know very clearly, initially whether you are happy or not.

    Later on, you wont have to say it, he will read your moods better than your girl friend I promise you.

    Have fun. You have no idea what you have done. You have bought yourself happiness that nothing else could have provided, I assure you.

    SJS, I have heard that if people get too close to their pets, they slowly but surely start to resemble them. Is it true?

    SJS - 'Axel' has one of the shiniest coats I've ever seen. Both of your dogs look great. As does your "dawg", Reuben..

    Hippocracy!!!

    I've heard of democracy, theocracy, etc., but hippocracy? Is that the sort of political system they have in large, inhabited African lakes/rivers?
