My golden retriever ended up eating his brand new bed we bought him for Xmas, when we leave for work we put Van Gogh in our guest bedroom, he has already eaten all the pillows, chewed a huge hole in the bed, then we flipped the mattress and he did it again...
I don't want to leave him in his cage for 6 hours when I'm at work so i resort to leaving him in his guest bed room. He's 8 months old, our trainer hasn't given me any advice on his disruptive behavior. Will bring it up this week; but I know others who are having issues with walking your golden let me give some advice.
Get a head halti / gentle lead -- and a spray bottle of water, when he / she pulls or misbehaves spray the bottle of water, if they pull shorten the lead. Tell him or her to sit and allow it to gather its composer and calm down, any negative behavior such as biting , etc gets the spray bottle keep all of your orders firm and reward good behaviors with treats.
