Different dog owners have different reasons for providing golden retriever training. While many golden retrievers are considered to become household pets, a lot are also geared up to become guide dog for the blind and hearing dog for deaf people. Some of them are also taught to hunt, detect unlawful drugs and to take part in search and rescue operations. But regardless of their good track record, it’s not odd for this breed to develop minor problem at some stage in their lives small problem which could grow into something troubling if ignored.

One minor dilemma that is seen to impact golden retrievers and other dog breeds is pulling on leash. The problem doesn’t appear to be serious when you have a young pup but imagine what can become of him in the years ahead. A 70-pound golden retriever tugging the leash is not a good idea for sure.

Before you went out of the front door have fun in the early morning sunlight, make certain that he is calm. Rather than going to him to prepare for the walk, call him to come to you and attach his leash. Go out of the door ahead of him. If he went out ahead of you, return and command him to sit or anything to calm him down. When walking, bear in mind that you always ought to be ahead or beside him, not behind him. Leaders are usually in front of the pack, right?

As soon as he begins to pull the leash, stop instantly despite his best effort to move. Resume the walk only if he has calmed down. If he keeps on pulling, stop and walk in the opposite path. The general rule of this particular golden retriever training is to make him realize that you’re the one who choose when and where to go and that he should keep his attention on you to determine the next destination.

Motivate good behavior by rewarding him every time he exhibits one. Lavish him with praise every time he moves forward and a treat every once in awhile won’t hurt too. By being a patient and consistent dog owner, your pet will soon find out that a good dog does not pull on the leash when walking.
