How Easy Is It to Train a Labrador Puppy?

I will be getting a Labrador puppy and I want to keep her inside my house. How hard/easy is it to potty train her. Please give me tips on how to train her. do they shed alot.? will she be good for my 5 year old son? My son is real self cuatious and gets depressed easy he is a single child and i am a single mother are labradors good for his type of behavior?

Labs are perfect for homes with young children. They are very energetic and stay puppy-like for a long while (at least two years). They are very social, loving dogs that are not known to be vicious unless protecting their owners. Also, these dogs are very intelligent, which makes training them easier. I have two labs. I house-trained the first simply by taking her outside on a regular schedule. She always went out about 10-15 minutes after eating/drinking, first thing in the morning, and before bed. I used puppy pads for her, also. With my second Lab, I used a crate. She would sleep in the crate, and then go outside to use the bathroom in the morning. They both took about 2 months to truly get it and have NO more accidents in the house. I used a lot of praise and treats. Labs love praise and acceptance. So, your pup should catch on pretty fast.
