Calling all 9 month old pups

Once again I would like to extend an invitation to those forum members who have pups born in April of 2010. One of the forum members, Charlotte, has started a Facebook page for them.

I am a new owner of a mine month old Golden Retriever puppy. I just rescued her, and she is nuts. She was completely untrained when I got her, so I'm not sure what is normal behavior for a nine month old Golden puppy. This is my first time raising a puppy on my own. When I was in college, we had a young Golden puppy, and I don't remember her being as crazy as this puppy. She has LOTS of energy and will chew and grab anything but her toys. I have a lot of toys for her to play with, but she chooses to bite/play with my hands and arms. If she gets something besides a toy in her mouth, she knows she isn't supposed to have it, and she runs away as fast as she can. She is better after getting LOTS of excercise per day, but if she doesn't get excercise, this behavior is exagerated. She can be very stubborn, too. When I tell her to come, she will actually look at me and I can tell that she's trying to decide if she wants to obey me or not. Then she runs away or comes, whichever she decides. I am putting her in obedience classes this week, and I'm hoping it will help. I was just wondering if this is normal for a Golden puppy of this age. She is very sweet, so I'm hoping, someday, she will be calm and obedient. Thanks for your advice.

Hello! You're very welcome to join us lot on the April pups thread - it's the one with zillions of posts! There are infact only a handful of us regular posters and we'd love another! It's nice as all our pups are at the same stage so we can discuss the problems and issues we're having together.

As to your post; 9 month Goldens can certainly be a bit nuts!!! My boy doesn't come when I call him much either and he runs off with a guilty look on his face when he has something he knows he shouldn't too!
She will calm down eventually. As she is untrained and has probably had a rough start to life it's not suprising she acts a bit wild. Do please post on the April pups thread as there are more of us that can help you and your girl out! Things wont change overnight, even with obedience classes, but at least you'll know that your taking the first step.

I'm Charlotte, and my boy is just 9 months old and he's called Alfie! The original poster, jweisman54 is Joyce and she has Izzy who is 9 months also.

Get some obedience classes Amandanmaggie. It will help a lot, but yes even those with lots of training get crazy sometimes. Just have to work and wait it out.
