Getting a lab pup in a few weeks want him as a gun dog , pigeon,pheasant etc 


If you give a more detailed answer about the type of shooting you do, eg rough shooting, syndicate driven, wildfowling, pigeon from the hide etc, then you can get a better answer on how to go about training your dog. 

Do you want the dog to hunt out birds? Or just be steady and retrieve them? 


Joe Irving: Gundogs, their learning chain, would be a good place to start. There are several retriever specific books worth a look, although traditionally labs aren't used for flushing all that much so other books may be better.

Start with the book gundog sense and sensibility by Wilson Stevens. Join the forum Gundog training tips. Other than that there are some good you tube videos but at the start you just need to let the dog have their puppyhood and want to be with you. Don’t try to do too much too soon, the mistake all novices make.

good luck

Also look at the puppy training info from Adrian Slater.


Would definitely recommend Adrian’s DVDs, I travel to see him a few times a year from Norfolk up to his near liverpoool. The man knows his stuff
