  2. Mouthing

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi I have my first golden named Ace and he is 13 weeks old and a huuuuge mouther. He actually tries to play tug with our body parts the growls and all. Any suggestions to really stop mouthing? He starts puppy preschool next week for anyone who suggests training.
  3. Biting Mouthing I feel like a pin cushion

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Has anyone used the vinegar and water spritz to get the puppy to stop biting. Bella (12 weeks) will play with her toys and then all of a sudden start biting my legs, my chair, my senior Golden. We keep Bella on a long leash as our house is too big to run around. Or I will block a portion off...
  4. Natural bones stuff with frozen chicken and rice too harsh on baby teeth?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi I have a new puppy 13 weeks, male. I had a good laugh at the "land shark" posts as I was comforted to know that my supposedly gentle golden was mouth munching my arms and legs, shoes, jacket, jeans, blankets on my bed. For crate training chew toy I stuffed a natural bone with chicken and rice...
  5. Bite with a frowl

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi again, So I just experienced some behavior I did not like at all: my 12 week old was playing and grabbed my finger really hard and growled. I had to get her mouth open with my free hand. She got me enough to draw a bit of blood. She's not aggressive at all. Her personality is very sweet. I...

    I just brought my new golden, Brewer, home last Saturday. He is 13 weeks old. He already knows sit, stay, down, and was really good at puppy class. However, he is super mouthy. My hands and arms can show you that. He also grabs at my pants and won't let go and even growls while doing this. I try...

  9. Puppy Biting/Mouthing Issues

    What did you DO???
    I have a 13 weeks old golden. He is OBSESSED with hands. He just wants to keep mouthing them, even when you simply try to pet him (unless he's tired). He has softened up considerably since being a pup by using the "yelping" response, but to a small child, this could really hurt still. I always...

    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...
