Help with Hyper Puppy
I have owned dogs my whole life but I just don't remember any of my other dogs being this difficult. How can I keep her from being so excited when she sees othe people or dogs? How can I safely control her? (The head harnesses don't work on her.)

I have found that a choke collar works pretty well with my dogs. You aren't hurting them its like they punish themselves when they pull too hard. also the more the dog is around others the better it gets. You also have to take into account that lab puppies are def one of the most energetic breeds ever

you could try using a sensation harness or the easy walker harness. both are designed with the leash attaching to a ring in front of the dog's chest so that when they pull, theyr body is turned toward you. it may also be helpful to get her into a group training class so that she learns she needs to listen to you even when other people and dogs are around.
