Well, let me start by putting your mind at ease that this is NOT aggression, it's normal golden puppy mouthing. Goldens are one of the mouthiest breeds as puppies, and we affectionately call them "land sharks." There are many ways to deter this behavior. And you do want to deter it so he doesn't think he can continue to mouth when he is older. One way is to re-direct him to a toy or appropriate chew item. Another way I've discussed in past threads is the "respect hands technique" taught to be by a puppy trainer. You can search for this in the forums search section and read the details of the technique. Also, check out the "puppy" section of the forum...there is much written about this problem as well as other common puppy issues. Welcome and please post some pictures!
