Hi My name is Michele. I just got a 7 and half week old puppy, half golden retriever and half labador retriever. just got her 2 days and she is such a doll. She has had only one incident in the house and seems to be pretty much housebroken already. She is great with my 11 year old and all the neigborhood children. I feel we really lucked out with such a good puppy. ( keeping my fingers crossed!) My only complaint is that she does not move on the leash. She does run around and stays on the property, staying close to us. She does not want to walk on a sidewalk or the street. we live in a condo and our rules are dogs on a leash. I don't expect her to walk a mile and her young age but I want to get her used to it. One of my neighbors tonight recommended putting the leash on her in the house and let her get used to walk around with it, with her dragging it with her. I would love to hear any suggestions that have worked for others. Thank you!
