    Hi All,
    We pick up our pup, working lines, lab-black-boy Sun, I have Pippas Lab Handbook but wondered which I should go with for training purposes, I believe the Total Recall is good. I could do with a simple book advising from week 8 where to start and how to develop.
    My real question is whether specifically TR is right for a working lines dog, or whether I should start with a Gundog training book ?
    Be keen to know what you recommend, we aren't specifically looking to go Trialling/Shooting but it's something I want to consider.

    Hi and welcome! First you have to teach your dog the basic and those 2 books you mentioned are all you need for first few months. Later on you can decide what will be your training goals. There are tons of really useful advises here on the forum + tons of videos on youtube.

    Good luck and enjoy with your puppy.
