I bought my first Golden nearly 2 months ago from a highly rated breeder in Oregon. He is now about 5 months old. While I'm not really a bird hunter and his duties are more of a pet than a working dog, I would like to take advantage of his instincts and teach him whatever he is willing to learn. I know we'll be doing a little grouse hunting and I might just give waterfowl a try.
Any suggestions on where to start for someone who has never worked with retrievers before? Right now we are still working on "sit", "down", & "come".
