Cooper has a Toilet Tissue fetish and so I either keep the bathroom doors and Bedroom doors and Closet doors closed (he likes to explore too) or I keep the Tissue paper of the Roll dispenser since he can reach that and either bites holes into the Roll or he unruffles it running through the house with it:bowl:. Bogart never did that. They come up with new things all the time to entertain themselfs.
I find the best thing is to say "no" loudly when I catch Tucker at it (don't bother if you find it after the fact--he won't connect the events) and then put an approved chewable in front of him. If he bites or nips at you or something on you (shoe, clothes, etc.), say "ouch" loudly in a high-pitched voice and turn your back on her for about 30 seconds. In puppy talk talk, this means "you hurt me and I don't want to play with you now." It's very effective. Goldens are sweet-hearted and want to please, not hurt. Good luck!
: Mia loves the toilet paper, paper towels whatever she can get a hold of. Like the previous post I also keep the toilet paper out of reach and try to redirect her to a toy instead. Good Luck and Congrats on your new family member.
This is my first golden retriever and I already realized that they are so smart. I can walk her without the leash now and she follows me. Sad thing is she bites me so hard and also she pees on my bed also. Should I use the leash to keep her out of reach? And also is this the good time to train her some commands now? She somewhat does the "retriever" but after she got the ball she just trying to run away from me not giving me the ball.
Btw, I just bought her toys, food and treat but she hates the new food so I have to cook for her 4 times/day but im good with that. I think I need some advice about dog food and treat in case I have to go study and couldnt have time to cook for her.
@BriGuy: Could you tell me how to train them the "drop it" command?
@Penny's Mom: I am uploading the recent pictures of her right now . Shes so friendly and playful, I take her for walk 4 times/day and sometimes we meet some ladies with their children.
P/s: Oops, I forgot to tell everyone her name. It is Amber, and I love her so much.
Find yourself a really good dog training book, or a local puppy training class. There's a lot of good information on the internet, but a lot of it is confusing too. The training style I like the most is Sirius Puppy Training, but I don't think it's offered in Toronto. You could probably check with them however to see if there are affiliated trainers in your area. Sirius Dog Training
The most important thing is to train yourself to think like a dog. Dog training classes are really for the humans, not the dog. We just like to think we're training the dogs. LOL
If Amber had a chance to pee in your bed, it's not really her fault...she shouldn't have had the opportunity! Good luck. She sounds like a sweet dog. I'm new to Goldens, too, and I've wondering what took me so long to get one!
