Wondering why physical punishment is not recommended during golden retriever training? Find out...

There are many not-to-be-missed point in housebreaking golden retrievers which unfortunately are treated lightly. A big example,Guest Posting which by the way really applies to dog training at large, is how owners deal with accidents. Isn't it all too common to punish puppies that pee or poo indoors? What countless owners do not know is that there is a difference to punishing the dog within the act, and punishing it after the act.

The point here is that disciplining the dog does not matter, if the case is that the dog is caught a good number of seconds later. Your puppy may have been used to peeing and pooing a good number of times before it met you, and what's more, a puppy's scant memory, if not the scant memories of most dogs out there, is focused only on what lies ahead.

The golden retriever training answer? We human owners are in fact the best answers, if not also the fault. For we carry both the fault for lack of watchfulness, and also responsibility, since we need to be aware of the signs that indicate the chances of pooing or peeing. The warning signs in a dog of a pre-accident are known wherever dogs live, but needs to be reviewed again and again: walking around, or running in circles, nose sniffing around for the best toilet area (it actually prefers areas it has soiled before, so this is one more hint).

Next time you catch your dog midway through defecating or urinating, just keep in mind that things are very much in your responsibility. At that point, there is actually still enough time to train the dog to perform good manners routinely, one important thing being that the dog visits the poo or pee spot whenever it feels it needs to go. So never get mad with the dog from start to finish. Give it a firm and very certain "No," then pick it up, and bring it outside or place it on its pee pads.

Before we end, don't you think it would be wonderful if the dog were to look forward to visiting that one isolated spot in the yard whenever it feels like going? To do this, stay with the dog until it finishes its business, then end it by giving the dog either a pat plus your happiest and perkiest "Good dog!" With this golden retriever training technique, the dog expects that going outdoors with getting treats and perks results to treats and freebies.
