In the early to mid-eighteen hundreds, the Golden Retriever first appeared on a certain Lord's estate in
This Lord had an aim to breed a great hunting dog dedicated to retrieving the fowl that was hunted and which
frequently fell quite a distance from the shooter, sometimes into bodies of water. This, of course, would have made
hunting most uncomfortable when having to retrieve your own bird.
Although some Golden Retrievers may still fulfill the role as a hunter's companion, the main purpose of this
breed today is to fulfill the role of a family pet. Temperament of the Golden Retriever is often the greatest
reason for choosing a puppy. This certainly makes how to train your Golden Retriever easier than with many other
breeds. They are extremely people-friendly dogs and are generally non-aggressive to humans and other canines.
That is not to say that if attacked by another dog they won't defend themselves. Usually, however, they are
quite easy going and tolerant of strangers. In other words, a Golden Retriever does not fulfill the role of a guard
dog very efficiently, but is the first to be considered for a playmate for your children, especially since they
also have a high level of energy.
Once this beautiful, wiggly, loving Golden Retriever puppy has entered your home, it usually doesn't take long
to learn that accidents and puppies are synonymous and that furniture and carpets or hardwood floors are not. New
dog owners learn quickly that training the puppy is an absolute MUST! Fortunately, how to train your Golden
Retriever should be fairly easy, since they are very intelligent and truly aim to please.
It is often advised to have your dog trained professionally, which is a good idea. However, if you decide to
train your puppy yourself, you must first identify all the problems you need to address;
The puppy must:
1) Learn that outside is the elimination area.
2) Play only with designated toys.
3) Come when called.
4) Not to jump on people.
5) Learn not to bark too much.
Those are the five most important lessons you need to keep in mind when training your puppy. They are also the
foremost reasons to protect your home and furniture, as well as the dog itself, from harm. There are other lessons,
of course but some of them may not even be needed. For instance, you don't need to know how to train a golden
retriever not to bark incessantly if that is not his nature in the first place.
There are all kinds of tools available to aid in the training of your
puppy. Crate training is very useful in potty training. It is also
particularly useful when the puppy is alone for a period of time. It is not recommended to leave a puppy alone for
long periods, but sometimes it is unavoidable for perhaps a half hour. The crate is a safe place to keep puppy and
surroundings out of trouble.
In time, contrary to what many people will say, it will come to consider the crate as "his room;" his safe haven
when it needs the comfort of solitude. The pet stores also have training leashes, whistles and clickers as well as
a myriad of other training tools available. Training your Golden Retriever is usually a learning experience for
owner and dog alike.
