At this point I would say give Tucker the opportunity to relieve himself 6-7 times a day. The muscle that allows him to 'hold it' isn't fully developed until about 12 weeks old. With proper training, somewhere between the ages of 8-12 weeks old Tucker will get the idea that the place to go potty is outside. That doesn't mean there won't be accidents after that... but in that time frame the development of both his body and brain will reach a point where he is able to learn what is expected.

He is an adorable handful...

Not sure why they ever got rid of him but he's been the best thing ever to happen to our family! Now my daughter and her husband have their own Golden Girl! A friend told me about this site for support. Just found out today Myles has low-grade osteosarcoma. He had a back foot toe amputated 11 days ago and is doing great. So far no indication of any cancer anywhere else in his body and we'll be monitoring him regularly. He's been a trooper, never complaining and always happy as long as I'm near. Anyway- I'm choosing to stay positive and enjoy whatever time we have whether it's 6 more months or 6 more years. My friend lost her golden to lymphoma last fall and I was there with her the entire way. She said this forum made such a difference in her grieving. I love that it reminds me there is new life and the trials and grief are a part of the whole process. I've been thru the loss of a canine best friend before and always say I'm not doing it again. In reality, I'll do it again and again. Best way to honor the special memories given to me by all my canine friends.

Welcome to you and Myles, he's a handsome boy. Thank you for Adopting.
Hope he continues to do well and you have many years with him.
Enjoy the forum.

Keep a close watch on Tucker, take him out when he first wakes up, after he's eaten, or he's been playing. You may want to take him out every 15-30 minutes. I'm far from a puppy expert as I haven't had a pup in over 20 years........ I think I've forgotten most of it.

The Puppy section has a lot of useful tips, you may want to start a thread for Tucker in it if you haven't already. Members will be able to answer questions and give you tips that have worked for them.

It is okay. Please expect accidents, chewing, nipping, and barking. Some new dog owners are surprised that puppies do these kinds of stuff, and they give them up. Trust me, it is so worthy. I raised 2 boys at the same time. They are only 3 months apart. Every puppy is different. They gradually got better. Now they are 2 years old, and I enjoy them every minute of it. They both become therapy dogs.

Accidents happen. Here is a quick tip. Take him to 1 door for potty so he remembers that is the door that he needs to go every time he needs to potty. I would suggest to carry him and put him in front of the door so he can get out on his own. Yes that is right...every 15 minutes, please take him outside whether he wants to go or not. Then introduce the word that you want to use. For example "Tucker...potty..potty". Then once he does it, praise him so he knows he makes you happy. Male dog has the tendency to please his family. After few times, bring him a bit distance to the door so he walks toward it. This way, he knows where to go. I can guarantee you that you'll see the progression. He will learn to go to the door and bark or scratch the door. I would drop anything I am doing to open the door quickly. Then, you will see...he will look at you when he starts squatting. He will be expecting a praise from you. If he has any accident, please still take him outside quickly and say the potty word. Punishment or getting angry with him is totally useless. He has 5 second of memory at this time. If you get mad at him, he wouldn't know what he did wrong.

Please feel free to ask any questions You will have fun with your new baby!

Goldens are the BEST!
