    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Where do I go from here with potty training? I brought home a 4 1/2 month old female golden retriever pup about 2 weeks ago.

    We have a Golden Retriever that has stayed outside her whole life. We want to bring her in and want some suggestions on things to do.
