What are some golden retriever training tips?

Are they hard to train?


Answer by  DebbieP (102)

They are very affectionate dogs so positive reinforcement will work best. These are the types of dogs to get severe separation anxiety so harsh punishment will only hurt their psyche. They want to please so they should be generally easy to train, depending on when you start (the earlier the better!) and how consistent you are.

Golden Retrievers are people pleasers. Train them as early as possible, keep session to less than half an hour, and be consistent.
