Does your puppy do this?

Smith is our 6.5 month old golden boy. He is just the best. He's medium energy in the house but always down for fun once we get over to the park. Recently, he has started to jump up at us and nip at our hands, legs or butt once we begin to leave the park. It's like clockwork at this point. It's frustrating and we're not sure how best to approach dealing with it. Any advice would be helpful.

Smith's dad.

If that photo is anywhere close to date he's not that oil, it's normal puppy and adolescent behaviour, just be firm. When he nipped make a high pitched screech as if your in pain, he should stop

Does your puppy do this?

Is it just at the park? If so, it sounds like he's overexcited / over stimulated, etc. If he tries to jump on you, either raise your knee up so he lands on it and bounces off or turn your body 1/4 revolution so he misses. Immediately end playtime if he persists.

I would recommend training him to do check ins with you when off leash. Every time he comes over, give him a treat, hold his collar for a min or two, keep the treats coming so its s good experience then let him go play some more. The check-ins become a tiny time-out to calm down. The calmer he is, the less likely he'll be jumping up or nipping.

Good luck! Keep us updated when you can.

I believe Brave's dog is 1/2 Golden if I'm not mistaken. Furthermore, she regularly provides valuable input to the forum.

How is your puppy on the sit and wait commands? If he is good then I would put him in a sit/wait. If he breaks it, go back to the original place and repeat. Everytime he waits longer reward with a step forward and a good boy.
Our 7 mo old knows when we take our daughter to dance and she does get very excited. With repetition, tons of patience she has gotten to the point that she waits by the door and the leash is not put on until we are ready to leave. Also she has to wait until we step out first; if she stepped out before the person with the leash she went right back in.
I would practice everyday the same out the door rules even when he is not excited to create a pattern.
You can make your own set of rules but be consistent each and every time. good luck.

There are a lot people who have dogs other than a GR, who post here. I believe everyone is welcome or have been as far as I have seen.
You know, dogs are like humans, many different shapes, sizes and races but in the end we are all human, just as they are all canine.

Smith sounds like he just isn't ready to go home yet and this is his doggy way of telling you. When they get over excited it is hard to get them to follow your cue's. Doing as Brave says will help you to get Smith to follow cue's better. Also, try to ask for good behaviors before Smith actually gets over excited. Practice things like puppy push ups (sit/down/sit/down) some polite walking more sit/down with lots of rewards for doing the good behaviors. Try to make leaving the park just as much fun and just as rewarding as being in the park.

He's trying to tell you he doesn't want to leave the park

I would just proceed to the parking lot ignoring him the best you can. He'll finally get the idea that when you decide it's time to leave, it's time...period.

Bear is in fact a golden retriever (mix). Let's not start judging books by their covers, please.

Thank you nairB for your kind words.
