Posted by Mateja Lane

Labrador Retrievers are a waterfowl hunter's best friend. But they have to learn to retrieve first.

Labrador Retrievers are eager to please, especially at a hunter's side in the field. But before they start bringing back the ducks in the water, they have to learn to retrieve.

Many hunting dog kennels start training with duck decoys, little stuffed ducks, and lots of treats. Seeing a future hunting dog practice with a toy ducky is probably the cutest thing ever.

Here are 11 Labrador puppies practicing retrieving that duck.
