Hey my name is Louis and I have 2 Goldens, Moby and Dexter. Right now I am concentrating on teaching Dexter some advanced tricks (even though I should be working on stopping his jumping). Dexter is exceptionally smart but easily distracted as he is young and very curious. He is 10 months old and the smartest of the goldens I've had. I taught him to get me a beer/soda from the fridge in under 30 mins. I came online to the forum for advice on: 1. How to get Dexter to close the refrigerator after getting me a beer/pepsi/sprite (whatever is currently in the red coozi's in the fridge). The traditional way I've seen is to hold a treat up and have him jump into the door to close it but because it is stainless steel I can't have him scratching it. I've had a hard time trying to teach him to close it with his head or shoulder. 2. Read about what a clicker is and how to use it for training. 3. Teach Dexter some of these other tricks I've seen while browsing this forum so far. So I'll go ahead and get a start a thread now!
