A Golden Retriever puppy can bring so much love and joy to a family, but it can also bring a lot of stress, worry and work. Puppies need constant training, discipline and supervision to grow into well behaved, trained Golden Retrievers. Puppies chew, potty on the floor, bite, bark and jump on furniture. Many people love puppies, but dread the work that goes into training them.
But what if you could bring home a puppy who is already trained, or has a good head start on training? Too good to be true? Not if you find the right breeder or kennel to buy your puppy from. There are plenty of trained Retrievers looking for families to take them home. With a trained retriever, you won’t have to worry about messes on the floor, plants being dug up or chewed up furniture.
Getting trained Golden Retrievers all depends on who you buy your puppy from. Look for a reputable breeder, such as Golden Meadows Kennels, that specializes in working with the puppies soon after they are born. When a puppy is just a few weeks old, they can start being trained. In fact, puppies learn best the first couple months of life. Many breeders will use a clicker or a voice command to start teaching the puppies obedience cues. Some trained Golden Retrievers will learn to walk nicely on a leash, sit, stay and even some tricks before they are ready to go to their forever homes.
If you are looking for a puppy or dog who is already trained, do your research on the different breeders and find one that trains their puppies. Puppies who come trained may cost more money, but think of the time, stress and money you will save by not having to take your puppy to obedience class yourself. You can spend more time enjoying and playing with your puppy than spending time training him. When a puppy is trained at a young age, it will retain that information and will be an easy companion. Imagine being able to walk your puppy without having him or her pull you down the street. Imagine a puppy who gets along with kids and other animals in the household or neighborhood.
Another important part of training that breeders practice is crate training. This is when puppies learn to love their crate. It is a place they should feel safe and comfortable. It is a great way to potty train the puppy. That is because a dog will not go to the bathroom where they sleep, so naturally, putting them in a crate is the way to get them trained. When the puppy is taken out of the crate, they should go right outside to do their business.
Golden Meadows Kennels sell trained Golden Retrievers, and their puppies are socialized at a young age. It is important that a puppy play well with littermates and other dogs. A good, well socialized dog is a happy one. A trained retriever puppy can go on to do some amazing things such as become a service or therapy dog. Getting early training is the key to getting a well behaved, loving pet that can provide many years of joy and companionship for your family.
