My name is Jordan and I am brand new to this forum and to owning a retriever. I have always been a dog lover and have had my Border Collie since I was 19 and he has been the best dog I could ever ask for! A year ago my wife got the dog of her dreams, a little Pompapoo who looks like a teddy bear. Well recently we decided we might like a 3rd dog. I was persistent in the fact that if I got another dog it was going to be a hunting dog, well lucklily Golden Retrievers are not only good hunting dogs, they are also beautiful animals and the only dog we could agree upon. My wife and I decided to go look at a litter of pups a few days before Christmas, well nedless to say we ended up coming home with one. It was actually her Christmas present, but I get to benefit from it! I am brand new to owning a hunting dog and training them. I work a lot of hours, so I have been doing all the research I can to learn how to properly train our puppy to be my hunting buddy. Hopefully I can find a bunch of help on this forum!
Glad to be a part of this all!
