Hello, When were outside throwing the ball and Im getting ready to go in the house he gets upset and starts going after your feet and ankles and barks. He is 10 months and such a big baby, he is just a little spoiled:)
Any thoughts of what I should do would be great, thanks Rick

He is a great looking boy. Maybe you could stop playing a few minutes before going inside so he doesn't associate going inside with the end of his play time.

Work a series of sits on your way in. Sit... OK, take a step or two... SIT... OK, take a step or two, etc. Gets him out of his "irrational" brain and into a "thinking" brain. Also, interrupt the play with a little obedience maybe so that the sit train doesn't become the new cue that you're heading and the ball fun is going to stop.

Does he go in with you/ live inside or is he an outdoor dog?

Oh... GREAT QUESTION! Whoops... I took for granted that the poster and the dog would be going back into the house together!

Thanks everyone for the replies, there are so many great looking Goldens on here. I could spend all day looking at this site, and everyone is so nice and helpfull. Kody is an inside dog, he gets more room on the bed than I do. He loves to cuddle. I think I spoiled him a just a little:) Hes worth it!!
Please keep the responses coming and thank you very much for the help
Rick

I agree with Oaklys Dad and Stephanie (flying quizini). Both have very good advice.
