Best ways to train puppy?

Potty training tips/advice? I do not have a puppy yet, but hopefully soon. Or really ANY puppy advice would be appreciated. I am thinking about a lab or golden retriever....

  • Definitely use a crate to train and as soon as it is old enough get into obedience training.

  • Wow...2 beautiful choices...both very intelligent breeds and both high maintenance.
    Put the dog out as soon as it wakes up, or is finished eating...wait till it sodas what it needs to do before you come back in. Once done give lots of praise. Be firm but not angry when accidents happen...they are just babies after all. Always be calm...especially during disiplin
