The pups look great, sounds like everyone is doing well-I too didn't know 2 black Labs would have yellows, nice surprise, wasn't it?Hope you had the dew claws removed-doesn't cost much when they are little, but I had that done when I had my newest puppy spayed & it was a significant surgery, but since she has hound in her-didn't want those things ripping off her legs or curling back into them. So-you have homes for all of them? Have you thought about getting the male fixed while she's nursing the pups? It's so much cheaper to get them licensed here in CA if they "get fixed". It's $100 a year here for an unfixed male. That can really add up over their lifetime.

Please don't keep litter mates. Please fix the ones you have now.
Purina One is too grain based for me. A raw diet is fantastic, but if not try to move to a grain free kibble.

Your link.....IMO that stuff happens with most dogs....besides, it's all in how you train them. I know what I'm doing.

It is all in how you train them, but keeping littermates is VERY challenging. I do it , but my life/work is dogs. I never recommend people keep littermates.

You know what your doing but this happened?
I don't know if labs have male/male aggression but that's something you can't train out either. That's hard wired.
I have one puppy and she's a handful. I can't imagine two.

You're being unnecessarily negative on a thread which has managed to stay negative free thus far. Leave it alone. Everyone has already made their suggestions about the dogs getting spayed, being rude won't do anything except anger the OP and make her unlikely to listen to anymore input. It's entirely counterproductive and I suggest you stop. She seems to have handled everything well so far.

ETA: A large percentage of the time aggressive dogs CAN be trained in a way to manage the aggression, so that's entirely untrue. If a dog is truly so completely aggressive that there's nothing you can do to manage it the parents should be spayed immediately. Severe aggression doesn't just happen (generally, there are some exceptions), it is bred or trained.

Actually the mother and father are siblings and they are perfectly fine I have no problems with them. That's you opinion if you think one puppy is challenging. I've always had and raised multiple puppies. If your having so much trouble with one I would suggest you look into training classes.

Oh and by the way phillip, I just moved into this house so I inherited the dogs. Her getting pregnant wasn't under my control because I was living in Florida at the time.
