Foreseeing Problems Golden Retriever

The Golden Retriever and his hunting instinct: One hunt dog is different from another hunt dog. Even though your Golden prefers searching to collecting, don't allow him to rummage through the shrubs without your control. If you consequently educate him since his youth, in the forest he won't stray and he will be able to get used to remaining within a certain radius, almost always at a distance of 20 to 25 m. Call your Golden every time he gets too far away, and try to make your dog know that you are more important than anything he can find along the way, that way the doll will have enough liberty to move around yet will always be under control. It is possible to get him use to commands such as "Keep going" or "Stay".

When dogs meet: Although your Golden retriever is by nature loving and kind to other dogs, don't allow your young dog, which is on the leash, to approach another dog to establish contact. Don't feel bad if you deprive your dog of these encounters, because you will not take away his joy of living by not letting him play with another dog on the streets. Your Golden needs to learn to stay by your side, and with a concentrated mind. Of course, the situation allows it (you're in the park), your Golden can play. In this case, calmly give him the order to "Sit", unleash them with a "Run" or something similar. If your dog is one of those who faces other dogs in a not-such-a-nice way (they do exist!) Don't panic. The calmer you remain in these situations, the better example it is for your dog. Many retriever owners like to get together to go on walks with their dogs, benefiting all of them. A regular contact in between dogs stipulates the social capacities all of your Golden, but not all Golden appreciate long walks with other dogs. Young dogs, sick ones or older ones get tired very quickly; fearful or agitated golden don't find a moment of peace in big groups of dogs. For these kinds of dogs a less exciting walk with a smaller group would be more beneficial. In these walks your not-so-sociable Golden can improve his social habits, but it all depends on how these groups are made up. A walk like that wouldn't make much sense or be too pleasant if you had to jump from one fight to another trying to break them up and control your dog. In such a case, it would be better to simply go with one or two more dogs, giving you the possibility of focusing on your dog's behavior when faced with other Retrievers.
