    My dog won't come inside unless you give him a treat.

    1. He's not a golden retriever, I do not know where you got that from.
    2. He's been living on the farm for 8 years...pretty sure if he was going to get hit by a car it would of been by now.

    My friend tried to teach his dog to fetch beer for him. Big mistake! He wound up with a dog who knew how to open the cooler. The dog liked the hot dogs a lot more than the beer and wouldn't share!

    I use to take my lab fishing with me also. I would put the leash around my waste but this has ended after being pulled into the river a couple of times.

    @Res1956,
    I know why he does it, but he is just a simple farm dog. He always stops and comes to me if I call his name, so I dont have the need to teach him any further commands.

    I regret letting a couple of fellows at a local outside hockey rink play keep away with my female Golden Retriever. You have to be an expert puck handler to keep the puck away from her. Now, she is CRAZY about hockey pucks and at the sound of one hitting the boards she is on it. She regularly breaks up hockey games by stealing their puck. If the damn things had feathers on them she would retrieve them to me, pucks are another matter entirely. Fortunately, the young guys laugh when it happens. If she can't access the ice surface she will scent one out and dig it out of the deep snow. This is a tough habit to break as obsessed best describes her behaviour.

    Ha ha, that's awesome - you should film it, maybe you could get one America's Funniest Home Videos! I don't know that I really regret teaching our dog anything, except for maybe the word "lunch". When she was a pup, we would say "lunch time" when we were going to feed her, and she rapidly learned what that meant. So now in the years after that we have to avoid talking about anything to do with "lunch" in her earshot, or she starts begging for food.

    What is lacking here is basic obedience. Try teaching Sit, Stay, Come and Heel first. It is still not too late and once you have control in the immediate area, it can be extended so you can really have a great companion dog. Look up Evan Graham's you tube videos for basic obedience. This guy is a dog whisperer and can help you solve any problem you may encounter.

    Thanks, JM, for the chuckle on Monday morning. I have regrets along the same lines with a labrador I had. It got to the point I couldn't even walk her along a body of water and once she was in I'd have to wade out and get her because she wouldn't want to quit retrieving.

    Last year I taught one of our dogs to fetch a stick thrown into our lake. Now whenever I go fishing he associates the motion of casting the pole with me throwing a stick and jumps into the water. Is there anything you all regret teaching your dog? (I don't really regret teaching him to fetch, I just can not come up with a better word).

Welcome!
