After recently acquiring a young Golden Retriever I have to admit that I was struggling to get to grips with getting her training balanced.
She was shy when I got her and a little jumpy but the potential was certainly there so I took a leap of faith and came home with her.
After spotting and ad for a Golden retriever stud dog I thought I would pick the OPs brains as I was finding the dog a totally different beast to my Labs and spaniels
Anyhow,after contacting the OP I received a cracking message that has certainly pointed me in the right direction and confirmed some thoughts.
So a big thank you to YORRIC for taking what must have been some serious thought and time to put together that guidance.
Hats off to you sir
