Hello all, I am a new member here. Seems like a wonderful community helping each other out. We are in Austin, TX. Me, my partner, 6 and 10 yr olds girl and boy. We want to add a show line lab to our family. Reading about it a common theme is the puppy stages are challenging. My 6 yo is a bit on the shy side and gets scared easy. Not sure I want her to feel uncomfortable with a velociraptor around! But my son is good with puppies and can manage the biting phase from what I have observed with the rescue pups we had fostered. Is getting a 2 yr lab a good idea? Will the lab bond? I’d be getting from a breeder as I want to know the entire history, especially behavior. Thoughts welcome. Thanks!
