Hi everybody! I just found this site and am hoping some of you can help me!!! We have two goldens, Duke who is almost 5, and Ella who is 8 months old. Duke is Ella's daddy. Our problem is with Ella. She is 8 months old this week. She just will not listen at all. She will sit, lay down, and "give 5" (shake) but she refuses to stay. She will stay if I look at her, but the minute I turn my back she is up and going. She walks pretty well on a leash. When I take her out to potty she tends to want to take off to the neighbors yard and barks at me when I call for her to come back. Then I have to chase her down. Then, she pulls against me and pushes and straightens out her legs the whole way home. I just want to cry!!!! Duke is sooo good. He went through his puppy stage but nothing this bad. When we have them outside, she jumps all over biting at Duke, which I am thinking was being playful, but now I am wondering about everything. It doesn't seem to bother him but it does me. I just don't know how to get through to her. I've had dogs all of my life......all MALES.....and have never had this much trouble. Please help!!!
