Hi - I'm new to forums and a new owner of a Golden Retriever. He is now 13 weeks old and we've had him for 7 weeks. I had forgotten how much work a new puppy can be. I'll sure be glad when he's totally house trained.

Hi! I am brand new here too. We got our pups when they were basically adult sized so I am counting on you for puppy fixes. :D

This was our year of double puppies, so I hear you on the housebreaking issue. It is so nice when it is behind instead of in process, but they grow big too fast!

Hello and Welcome,
Puppyhood is fun and hard work. I forgot how much work as it had been 8 years since I had gone thru it last. Glad it was behind me except I miss the little guy size. There is a ton of great information in the puppy section that will help you raise him and if you dont find it just ask away. There are a bunch of great people here that will answer your questions.

Thanks for the welcome. The house training is coming along. I'm enjoying the puppy but am somewhat frustrated about his lack of attention when trying to walk on a leash. He is so distracted and pulls. He's 14 weeks old - am I expecting to much?

Leash training at that age is pretty iffy. At his age just let him get used to the feel of the leash being on his collar. In a couple of months you will be able to go for a slow walk around the block. Looking forward to seeing some pictures of your pup.
