  3. Barking when far away from me.... how to stop it?

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My 10 month old never used to bark. I left her for the summer with another older Golden and when I returned my puppy was a barker. The older Golden barks so I wonder whether she picked it up from her or at least didn't receive any 'no's' for her barking when she started since I wasn't there to...

  5. squirting???

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Agh! Trying to avoid a big argument with the husband. He thinks it's fine to use a squirt bottle to squirt a little water at our 11 week old puppy while he is IN HIS CRATE when he barks excessively! I disagree - the crate is supposed to be a safe place. What say you?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi! I'm the crazy girl with two goldens under 8 months... Bennett (8 months) is higher energy, but manageable. I take him to the dog park regularly - or other forms of exercise (walks/ball). Lately, when we are at the dog park, he won't really come near me. If I call him over, he blatantly...

  14. Need Advice on Training my Golden

    Golden Retriever Training
    We've had our Golden Retriever puppy for just over a week. His name is Levon and so far, he's been great! Took to his crate right away and doesn't have any issues going to the bathroom outside - if we read his signs right and react quickly. If it's number 2, he usually lets out a little whimper...
