I think they all have that from time to time. I find that always having a reward really helps to get the reaction you want helps.

My Buddy is being so stubborn of late. Won't listen or do anything I say. I think I have to re-start training all over again with him :(

Boy I'm so glad to see this post. Penny's been through training and has earned her CGC but forgot all of it unless we have her training leash on and even then it's maybe she will and maybe she won't.

How long are they teenagers for????????? Penny's going to be 2 yrs old next month

Ruby is 2 years old and that girl has a mind of her own. I have never seen anything like her. Even with a treat!!

i think they get out of there teenage years at bout 3. yas i ment stubborn sorry for alot of spelling mistakes i might make im slightly dyslixic, :(

but ya hopefully angel will grow out of it. so i can have her off the lead and stuff. round where i live the only goldies i see of the lead are old ones, so im wondering if this stage does pass and it happens in most goldens :) cos she will be a good behavioured dog once that stage has gone.:p:

No treats will get Moose inside if he thinks that he is not being given enough time to play. When called he will lower his head, look to the side as if he's pondering what to do. He will then lie down and pout like a kid.
