    Hi there ~ We have a 4 or maybe even 5 year old Golden, which we rescued a little over a year ago. He is a love and we can't help but think he came from a loving home. The rescue org. said he had been found wandering the streets. He's happiest when he is right alongside you. Unlike my husband's previous Goldens, he doesn't like to swim and when he does chase after a ball (or other toy) he prefers to play "keep away". I'd like to see if we can teach him some tricks, and quite possibly, maybe he could qualify as a therapy dogs.

    Welcome, he's a beautiful boy.
    First I would suggest you get a clicker if you don't have one. If you don't here is an introduction for how they work
    Here are some places you can get some trick ideas for your boy.
    Those are a few trick lists that members have made including mine. If you go to forums than to Dog Tricks you'll find more great ideas. If you have any questions just ask.

    Hi and Welcome!:) Your boy is beautiful:love: I have one Rescue Dog and one kinda rescue dog, so am very pleased your boy's a rescue:love::) Rescue dogs always seem just that bit more loving don't they:).
