Hey there! I just joined this forum, as I got my first puppy, and my boyfriend and I are having some trouble getting her trained! I'm hoping I can find a wealth of knowledge and advice on her from you fine fine people. A little about me: My name is Bonnie, my boyfriend and I live in upstate NY and both work for a reputable computer company (that maybe makes your phone, tablet, or computer ). We just got a little 5 month old Black Lab, and she is the sweetest puppy, when she's not being stubborn and defiant. Ooooi!
