It’s no secret that our one year old Golden Retriever, Lincoln, is the second love of my life. He is quite rambunctious and certainly spoiled, but he makes all of our days brighter. Every morning, as soon as our first alarm goes off, Lincoln puts his paws on Jordan’s side of the bed – he knows I won’t respond. Jordan pulls him up onto the bed and he snuggles right between us for a half hour. Are you kidding me with this bliss?!
Now that I’ve been his mom for almost one year, I have a lot of back pocket tips that I thought I would share. I know I wish someone would have told me all of these things. But before I dive into my wealth of puppy intuition, let me just say that Lincoln is, well, quite spirited. He is an absolute angel when he is home with Jordan and I, but the moment he sees other humans or dogs he acts like he’s on something. We’re working on it, but we are still in no place to make any sort of training recommendations – ha.
