Golden Retriever Academy

While Golden Retrievers come "pre-loaded" with an affable personality and a longing to please, they require training just like any other dog. But the good news is that because of their biddable temperament, training is tremendously rewarding for both furbaby and human! The internet is a fabulous resource ,

full of helpful articles and videos.  

Here are some of our favorites ...

Sarah Hodgson

We have subscribed to Sarah's blog for years now, and are always grateful for her profound insight into the way of the dog.  She has tons of videos on YouTube and has written many books. You can't go wrong with any of her stuff.

The Monks of New Skete

Aside from just being flat out interesting, the Monks of New Skete wrote a tremendously helpful book that we recommend for all of our new families.  Happy reading!

Dr. Ian Dunbar

Dr. Dunbar is a legend in the doggie world.  Google his name and you will be rewarded with so many wonderful articles and videos!  I love this video from TED talk, where he asks his listeners to see the world through the eyes of our dogs, which enables us to better build their love and trust in us.

Jeff Stallings

Jeff has written some fabulous articles - I especially love his article in Bark on the CRITICAL need for early socialization.  He is available for dog training in the San Francisco area in the event you are lucky enough to live near him!
