White Labradors are known to be excellent hunting dogs. They are eager to please their owner, easy to train, loyal and intelligent, and have that natural desire to retrieve things. White labs can be taught to hunt birds, ducks, geese, fish and other prey. What sets a good hunting puppy apart from a household pet is simple — training.
How to Begin Training a White Lab Hunting Puppy?
If you are planning to adopt a puppy as a hunting companion, you want to begin training early. In addition to house training, it is important to train hunting puppies to learn basic commands like “sit”, “stay”, and “come” early so that they have a strong basic foundation once they get old enough to learn more complicated commands. Short, daily training sessions are generally most effective for young dogs, beginning at about eight weeks old.
All white Labrador retriever puppies have hunting instincts. They have become the most popular breed in the United States as pets, but their original purpose of the breed was to work and hunt. However, if they are not trained properly, they will not realize their hunting potential and remain a wonderful pet, but not a hunter. We recommend introducing puppies to water, hunting decoys in addition to basic commands so that the puppies begin to learn about hunting very early.
