Hello New Golden Owner

Hi, We purchased out puppy last weekend 12/8. He has been really good and pretty smart. He has really been a good puppy. He is going to puppy class Jan 5th. He already is pretty much house broke. He can sit, lay down and stay. Walking a leash on other hand is a whole new story by itself. This site has been a wealth of information. Our boy just turned 12 week on 12/10/12. I think getting a puppy it makes a world of difference. More time wiht mom makes a better puppy. I have to say that puppies are a ton of work. I feel like a prisoner. lol

Welcome to the forum!! What's your puppy's name? We would love to see some photos. Sounds like you're on the right track with your obedience work and getting signed up for class. It's just a matter of doing your homework (daily practice) and being consistent. The teenage months can be tough but it's worth it in the end He will turn a corner and then you'll be looking at old puppy photos and wondering where that sweet, sassy baby went.

I have loved this forum, it's taught me so much about dogs in general and goldens in particular. The nice thing is that you can't come up with an issue that hasn't already been discussed here, lots of answers.

When you work on walking on the leash, do you carry a baggie full of his kibble, maybe with some treats mixed in? Measure out his next meal into a baggie and take that with you everytime he's on the leash and reward him with a bite every step or two. Slowly begin weaning him off. When he gets that you can begin working on teaching him to "wait" (pause) while walking and give you his attention. That is a good thing to teach when he starts getting really excitable and wound up. Good luck!

Hi, Thanks, His name is Bentley. He walks on the leash in the yard and in the house. (when we are having a lesson) When we hit the sidewalk he just sits there looking at me. I do bring treats but that does not work. He will go maybe three steps sit and look at you like you are crazy. I did find a ton on useful information on this site. Happy to be here

Another Bentley! That name is so popular right now, I love it! There is our own Broadway Bentley and yesterday I taught a Basic Obedience class with a Bentley in it. So cute!

Welcome to the forum! It is so great to meet you!
