Hi all So you all know the last time i updated you i told you i was getting a labrador to gain experience before i get a Rottie well , im getting a Golden retriever instead as there just as quiet as labs but I've found 3 breeders who alk have tinnitus so understand my concerns about having a quiet puppy. So im hoping to get my Golden in a year or so ive joined a facebook group UK based and ive been getting advice being a first time owner but ive had some replies that make me think its a matter of training. For example i had one who said Goldens are the hardest puppies as hers has ripped the wall paper of the wall, chewed 2 dinning chairs and is hyper and never settles down. Now i thought surley the riping wall paper off walls is a mix of lack of mental stimulation and not supervising? And another reply said his pulls him down the road and hes never been able to train his to not pull? surley all dogs can be trained to not pull ? And fianlly i had one who said hers NEVER shuts up and barks at every little sound , even barks at leafs falling on the grass or will bark to wake her up so he can go out or barks for attention. surley this is also due to lack of training , she said she had tried everything to stop him barking but nothing works , so surley she either hasn't tried everything or something as barking is surley something that can be curbed with good training from day one? Am i right all this is to do with training , lack of mental and physical stimulation?
