Golden Retriever Training
Golden retrievers are one of the most popular dog breeds in the United States. Anyone who has spent even a little bit of time with a golden retriever can see why they are so well loved. Goldens are outgoing, trustworthy, and eager-to-please family dogs that maintain the playful behavior of a puppy into adulthood. They are full of energy and love to play. Given that the breed was originally built to retrieve waterfowl, it is no surprise that swimming and playing fetch are second nature for golden retrievers. Goldens need a lot of exercise so they are a good choice for people with an active lifestyle.
Are Golden Retrievers Hard to Train?
Golden retrievers are known to be one of the most intelligent dog breeds out there. This makes them easier to train than many other dog breeds. In fact, the American Kennel Club claims that golden retrievers are the fourth easiest dog breed to train, topped only by german shepherds, poodles, and border collies. However, just because a dog is considered easy to train does not mean you should be relaxed in your training regimen. Even golden retrievers need routine and guidance in order to get the desired results from training.
If you have never trained a dog before and are not sure what to do, the dog trainers at Michael’s Pack have plenty of experience working with golden retrievers and have achieved great results in the past. If you are looking to train a golden retriever in your home, we can help.
Positive Reinforcement Golden Retriever Training
At Michael’s Pack, we believe that positive reinforcement training is the only way to properly train an animal and that negative reinforcement techniques only serve to harm the relationship between you and your dog. We strongly believe that “Communication is Key” and that the training process should strengthen the relationship between you and your pet by building mutual respect and trust. The results we have seen over the years prove that positive reinforcement methods are the only way to get long lasting results from training.

The best time to train your dog is when they are a puppy, because they have no learned behaviors.
