Have you seen Marley and Me? Well that is what I have with my 1 year old Golden Retriever. I love him, but he is CRAZY! Will neutering him really help? Anyone?:doh:

Welcome to GRF. I have a couple of the same bouncy goldens. Neutering will help a bit but the best thing you can do is to do some obedience classes to really make your golden use his brain. It does get better but goldens remain puppies at heart until they are at least three.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Obedience classes will help you out immensely. Look for a trainer who teaches positive methods. Young goldens respond well to fun, upbeat training. Also, lots of exercise. As they say, "a tired dog is a good dog." :) Neutering helps some, and unless you're planning to compete with and eventually breed your dog, it's really a good idea anyways to avoid unwanted puppies and some health/behavioral issues.

Yep you heard it right - obedience class and lots of exercise. Welcome to the forum. Post some more info about what you are dealing with and I am sure you will get some help here. We have all been through it!

I love that movie, I was so touched. I believe your doggie will be better as he grows. Don't worry too much.

Sounds normal

Sounds like a normal one year old.
Obedience class would help and neutering too.
