In fact, you can train your Golden Retriever successfully on your own. You just need a few tips to follow.

Potty Training

Teaching your dogs to use the bathroom is the most important thing to teach. You can take your dog to the bathroom and say “here”. Over time, they will come to understand it because golden retrievers are smart dogs.


This small, confined space can be intimidating to dogs. Let them move there on their own. You can leave the crate open and let their curiosity run. They will go inside and you can shut the door for a short period of time but open it afterward until they get used to it.

To avoid unnecessary bites, try introducing your Golden Retrievers to the family and other family members. You can also introduce your dog to neighbors and other pets.
