    We currently have 2 nordic retrievers, they are the best, one is 1 yr the other turned 3 yesterday. So very even tempered, loving and docile. If I HAVE to complain, it's about the 1 yr old who goes next door to eat cat poop. Nasty nasty ;:barf;:barf;:barf
    We had a golden before the two we have now who was like living with an abusive boyfriend.
    I have to post a pic of our two:

    We have two dogs: one is a giant schnauzer named Hagan and the other is a lab mix rescue named Jake.

    I've learned with puppies that no matter what you name them when you bring them home, their names are "no, no, bad dog" for the first few months:p

    It also helps when you correct them with a sharp "no" and remove whatever they are chewing on that isn't theirs, to give them a toy that is theirs immediately and praise them when they start playing with or chewing on it.

    Beth your dogs are beautiful. I have a chocolate lab hes about 3 yrs old and is great. When he was a puppy we had to constantly be on the lookout for him wanting to chew things up (shoes, electrical cords, belts ect.) and make sure he was chewing on his rawhide treats or his toys. That was the hardest part of getting him trained after that everything was gravy.. Housebreaking, walking, simple commands stay, come, sit,ect. he qucikly got and seemed like he enjoyed figuring out what I wanted him to do and doing it. He is great to be outdoors with just walking running or playing fetch and he is just as content to just lay around all day and watch T.V. he is such a bum sometimes LOL
