Get reading and select a training program in the next week or so, then order it and start reading or watching. I like a combo where it is both book and DVD, you can read and see illustrations that you can study and then see it with an actual dog. I have used Smartworks but read 10 minute retriever, Hillman and few others but my base in Smartworks. You might even get Evan to chime in here on your question. Enjoy the pup and consistency is the key. Look for a retriever club in your area. Force fetch is the most difficult step.
