Adorable, affectionate and almost exceptionally gifted. This is how your Golden Retriever puppy could be described, and if you give them a good, early education, they will keep these characteristics throughout their whole life.
TRINING, NOT A VERY EASY TASK
Training the Golden Retriever puppy is not an easy task, essentially because they love to play and have fun. You will need to dedicate a lot of time to ensuring that they end up taking in your orders and they will become a charming dog. They are also a very sensitive dog:
- Avoid shouting and try to make them obey you using good words.
- During the first stage of their training - between 3 and 14 weeks - you should be very attentive with them; show yourself to be the leader.
- When they disobey or have some 'accident' when doing their business, stay calm and don’t get upset: this kind of behaviour confuses them and can make them doubt your leadership abilities.
Your golden retriever puppy has a fairly mischievous character, so don’t be surprised if you find slippers that have been chewed or hidden in a corner. To avoid this:
- Do not leave objects that are very important to you within their reach.
- Teach them to play with toys - balls, knots, toy bones etc. - so that they do not break or damage other items.
