My two year old golden, Abby, seems to be getting quite dramatic lately. I'm teaching her to stand on command, and, like whenever a dog learns a new trick, she makes mistakes. So I correct her and show her what she needs to do. But whenever I correct her she acts like it's the end of the world just because she did something wrong! It's like Abby thinks that she just CAN'T do something wrong. She acts very dramatic when I correct her. She's never been like this before, although she has always been sensitive to training so I teach her gently.
I'm wondering, are all Goldens dramatic like this in trick training? I searched in the Internet and reread some dog books, but they never mention about goldens acting really dramatic if they make a mistake...
It's not really a problem that I should worry about, I'm just curious.
Abby is my first golden, so I don't have experience with owning other goldens. I also have a lab, though, but Coda isn't sensitive to training at all.
I'm watching my brothers 4 month old Golden Retriever while they are on vacation. Her name is Abby too! I took her puppy training today, but she was in no way sensitive. I'm wondering, are they all so freakin' hyper? But, no I've never heard of a dog that is overly sensitive when they do something wrong, but I don't have a whole lot of experience with Goldens either. The only one I have had was my brothers when we were teens, and he trained it to only listen to him.
