  • Labrador puppies - will mother fret if they all go to new homes at once? We have three Labrador puppies, 7 weeks old today. They have had their first immunisation, are all weaned, socialising together and are all ready to go to their new homes next week. I am wondering if we have all three go at once to their new homes, will the mother fret when they're gone. We are possibly able to stall one of the owners, so would this be a better option, rather than have them all leave at once?
  • How old does a labrador puppy have to be in order for it to remember what it has been thought? My 2 month old labrador puppy is very smart but it seems he does not know it yet. He knows that once he does hi business outside we will be praised and given a treat. But still he does inside even when the door is always open for him and he is a metre away. We do not have a crate. We're not interested in crates so tips with crates won't help. He is very smart though. 1 night he actually mastered crying near the door letting us know he needs to go outside but that was only 1 night. The rest of the days he keeps doing inside. I have tried stopping him exactly before he starts, picking him up and taking him outside but then he does not do it. Apart from the bladder control problem, he is an aggressive biter. He is very cute to play with and we know the difference between playful friendly bites and rough bites. How can we teach him to play friendlier? PS: This is a first for us having a big dog breed in the house. Dunno if it does a difference but before him we had a Yorkshire terrier.
