    my clf made a big change towards becoming more calm right after her first heat cycle after her 2nd birthday. Labs are techincally puppies until they are 2.

    I agree with Woodie 1187. Depending on the breeding, it may be never.

    If you hunt alot that energy will be worth it's weight in Gold, if you can harness it & direct it to become a hunting retrieving machine. There are some that can turn it off & on (I hope I have one this time ) but if I had to have only one trait I'll take that drive & energy & desire for hunting anyday

    My last Lab kinda started to calm down about 2 weeks before I had to put her down. One of the saddest days of my life.
