Bratty 7 month old

My 7 month old male has become so bratty! This is my 4th Golden, but I have always had females. I understand the significance of training and have taken him for puppy class and basic obedience. We were going to wait to neuter him, but between the crazy behavior and his undescended testicles we decided to get him neutered now. He his constantly harassing our 8 yr. old female Golden. He is always biting her leg and pulling on her tail. She is a very mellow Golden and NEVER corrects him. I keep a leash on him while he is in the house so it is easier to correct when he is being so bad. He has also started eating poop! It seems to be only the other dogs poop, but we just started them both on coproban. Haven't heard great success with this, but thought I would try. He can settle down and be very sweet, but for a big part of the day he is such a BRAT! Tell me he will outgrow this??

I'm sure he will settle as he gets older. I think he is just trying to play with your other golden. If she doesn't correct him, he probably isn't hurting her. If you feel he is getting too rough, you can try to direct his attention to a toy. I'm not sure what to do about the eating poop thing....never had to deal with that. Maybe work on your "leave it" command and then use that if you ever see him going for poop.

Now is where I really encourage you to visit the Teenage Thread in the Training Section here on the forum. Your boy sounds like he is entering this stage and frankly you will need others who have gone through this or are going through it now to help. Didn't think I would make it through this stage honestly. Both of mine forgot their training, became huge demons much of the time, destroyed furniture, walls, yard..I could go on and on. It is a stage, but one you must take charge of to get through. If you go to the thread, get a good cup of hot coffee and lots of kleenex to wipe your eyes from all the laughter (pictures). You are not alone and Yes, we all do get past this time.

Have fun and join in on the thread!

Sounds like you have a new teenager in your home! It has nothing to do with gender, the two females we had before Hank were WAY worse during this stage than he was. Neutering won't help either, it's just something he needs to outgrow. Hang in there!
