    Get the basic obedience down first. Make sure she knows you are boss and likes to do what you tell her. Positive reinforcement is key and never give a command you are not ready to enforce. A dog that runs off and flushes birds out of range is far worse than having no dog at all. You will spend your whole hunt yelling, angry, and embarrassed. basic obedience is 95% of the game.

          You are going to have to answer that one for yourself. Some Labs are prodigies, some take most of their lives. Get a copy of "The 10-Minute Retriever", and forget about meeting anybody's schedule. The idea is to end up with a retriever. Pointing and holding the point are another subject entirely.
