    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone, I have a 3 month old golden named Finn and he is doing pretty good I'd say for 3 months, he knows Sit, bt doesn't always sit when told of course but mostly he does. But one new habit he has that I can't seem to stop him from doing is jumping up to te kitchen counters and literally...
  2. 5 Months: Jumping, Lunging, and grabbing arm

    Golden Retriever Training
    Stuart (very high energy/gets bored easily) has started Lunging more lately on walks and when excited. Grabbing my arm and clothes part: I think he does this to get my attention (grabbing my arm). I am doing the stand like a tree with my arms cross up high until he calms down. Walking...
  3. Climbing onto me if I sit or lay down

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I have a 3 yr old male rescue, Rusty. We've only had him 10 days so far. He is so attached to me that any time I sit or lay down he climbs onto me. Since he weighs 70lbs, this is not a pleasant thing and I am bruised all over. I tell him "off" and push him down, but he does it right away. He...
  4. Attacking

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My golden is 10 months, and I just got her about a week and a half ago from a great breeder. I got her to be a therapeutic animal for me, but this is turning out to be completely opposite. When I first got her, she was so loving towards me, and the only problem we had was a known problem -- she...
  5. 4 year old golden still jumps and nips everyone

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I have been browsing this forum since I had my golden Rocky as a puppy. He was a great puppy although always hyper and jumpy. Now he is 4 but he has lost none of his bad jumping habits. Let me explain. He is well trained in commands but as SOON as he sees someone that is not family, he SPRINTS...

  7. Jumping 6.5 mo old

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi all! I'm new and this is my first post. After my Bud died -he was my therapy dog and such a good boy- I got Murphy. Murphy is now 6.5 months. My biggest problem is that he jumps and bowls over everyone. He jumped on me while I was almost to the top of the stairs and I almost fell all the...
  8. Jumping Bean Murphy

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Will wonders never cease. I took my 10mth old out tonight to toilet and thought I would leave Murphy- 17wks in the kitchen with a couple of toys. It's blocked off at both ends. What can he do in about five minutes right? He's pretty much a jumping bean but he's tiny. Rosco at 11wks was bigger...
  9. Random fits on walks

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My golden, Chessie, is almost two years old. Like many dogs, she is an angel in the house. She's always sweet and 100% obedient. Outdoors is a different story, as I understand can be the case with many dogs. She's always been quite "feisty" and independent. I love to spend time outdoors...
  10. Sandy won't jump on the bed anymore! Help!

    Golden Retriever Senior Center
    Hi, My 4 1/2 year old golden, Sandy, won't jump up on the bed by herself anymore. She also seems to have a hard time jumping in and out of the car, and she climbs up onto the sofa now instead of jumping like she used to. I know that she's getting older and is obviously going to mellow out, but...
  11. Walking problems...again!

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I am out of ideas. I am defeated, I feel like we let Koda down so badly this time. When she was a puppy she did the jumping/mouthing crap like a lot of dogs on here I have heard about. We were understanding then as she was little and we figured it was a phase they went through. We got through...
  12. Advice on jumping please

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Augustus is 17 weeks old. He just graduated from his puppy obedience classes! He learned how to sit, lay, stay, drop it, come, and walk on a leash. They classes where helpful but not so helpful in the areas I was hoping from. Like biting, potty training, and jumping. He has a tendency to jump...
  13. Looking for Advice on 8 month old around kids

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hello, I'm just discouraged I guess. My s-i-l brought her four kids over last night, ages 15, 12, 10, and 4 years. Maizie has been laid back and relaxed a lot more with just me and my DH. No kids in the house regularly. Well, it is like an electric current of energy goes through Maizie...
  14. Uncontrollable jumping/biting

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I know this has been posted before and I have read through them but I am at my wits end with this. It only happens when we are playing (outside or downstairs) so I know it is not aggressive in the least bit and all in fun (in her mind). We take a ball downstairs or outside and throw it for...
  15. Puppy Class problems - sorry so long

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi, Maizie is our first golden retriever, first inside dog ever, and I wanted her because I'd read and heard about how easy goldens are to train and how they love to please their owners...well, now I feel like we're failing puppy class because she is soooo excited that I can hardly concentrate...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I'm totally new on this forum, but reading through many of the threads, I've learned a lot! Lady is a good dog, and I know she's just a puppy (12 weeks old), but between her and our 4 year old son, our house is turning into chaos! I'm finding it difficult to manage them both, as our son loves...
  17. 1year old chester is aggressive with girlfriend...

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Chester is just about a year old. On occasion he has really bad behavior. He only acts like this when he is with my girlfriend for the most part (we live together and she has been around Chester since he was 6 weeks). For example they will be outside together in the back yard and he will start...
  18. Pacing Golden Retriever

    Golden Retriever Conformation Showing
    My golden retriever is just over a year old and is a wonderful show prospect according to the breeder. However, we have a problem as our dog constantly paces when he trots. He also jumps up and tries to grab his leash when we begin to trot. Can anyone help me with some advice on how to stop...
  19. My 10 month old attacks me

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Cooper is almost 10 months old and has been having more frequent "episodes" where he's running at me & jumping/biting me. He's not chomping down hard, but the mouthing still doesn't feel good, nor do his claws. If he can't grab my hands, he is trying to grab at my clothes. I've tried watching...
  20. Walking the Puppy - jumping & biting

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I have a puppy who was born April 12, 2011. She is a great puppy most of the time. I know she needs her exercise and I try to walk her a few times throughout the day. I also take her into the yard and play with her balls and other toys. She has plenty of chew toys in the house that I play with...
