Question by : Why is my dog so stupid?
I own a 85 lb AKC Golden Retriver. He is so energetic and annoying I really can’t stand him. He gets into everything, he never listens to anything, every chance he gets he flys out the front door. I just can’t stand him anymore. I know most of you are going to tell me the obvious, “he needs exercise, and obedience classes” I’ve tried since the day he was a puppy to teach him to fetch sticks and swim at the lake but he won’t do it. He would rather chase and terrorize the people that go there. I’ve even tried obedience classes but he pulled me off my feet and attacked a dog that was participating. They told me I couldn’t come back. I don’t know what to do with him. And I’m not an idiot when it comes to dogs. I’ve successfully trained many dogs in my life, I’ve even competed in flyball competitions, but this dog is hell and I’m strongly considering finding a new home for him if he doesn’t stop. Any suggestions?

He might think he is the Alpha in the pack, that’s why he don’t listen. You’ll need to show him who’s boss. Never let him enter through a door before you. When you return home, let he come to you instead of you going to pet him. Feed her only after you’ve eaten your meal. Don’t let him sleep on your bed, etc….
