Q. My 2 year old Golden still bites. Is there anything we can do to stop it?
Hello Ed,

Our Golden Retriever who is almost two is still biting...we have tried everything! Sometimes it seems as though she is very serious and uncontrollable. In addition, she hates to walk. Whenever we attempt to go on walks, she jumps up over the leash and bites at our hands and refuses to walk as we try to fix the problem. Also, she is very timid around other people and especially other dogs. She does not show aggression, but puts her tail in between her legs. When attempting to take her places to get over her fears, she will not even enter the store, such as Pet Smart. One more problem is when we have her in the house, she is fine if someone is petting her, but as soon as we stop she bites. And if we even step away from her, she will go wild, running at very high speeds with her tail in between her legs all around the house. We are very frustrated with her and feel as though we can't handle her. Please help if you have any suggestions.

Thanks so much!

A. This is an issue of an owner who is not assertive owning a dog that requires assertive training. A bad combination.

Most of the time people like you cannot deal with a dog like this.

This dog requires a prong collar, a good leather leash and a handler who is not going to be influenced by a dog that acts like this. You have had this dog so long and allowed it to act stupid so long that the dog is not going to be re-trained in one session. It will take a number of sessions. The dog needs to learn that acting stupid results in a hard multiple POP’s from a prong collar. The pops continue until the behavior goes away. In other words the dog is rewarded for being calm.

I am too busy to write down everything that needs to be done with a dog like this If you care to learn what my training system is you can get my 4 hour DVD Basic Dog obedience.You can see how to fit the prong at (http://leerburg.com/fit-prong.htm )

The goal of our pack structure training program is to produce a dog that is calm and submissive and a dog that follows the rules of the pack leader. This DVD teaches people how to become a pack leader that their dog respects and loves. Most people are not born pack leaders. In fact, far from it. The majority of dog owners (many who have owned dogs their entire life) simply do not know anything about the instincts that control our dogs or how strong these instincts are in the domestic dog. Oh people may have heard that they need to be a pack leader or they may have heard they need to be an ALPHA with their dog but they do not understand what this really means or how to accomplish it.
