Dog’s name: Rudy
Location: Lelystad, Flevoland, the Netherlands.
General obedience: Curly-coated retrievers are known as stubborn dogs and that’s something I’ve also experienced with Rudy. You have to tell him something at least four to five times before he gets it, but when you have reached that point, he won’t forget it.
The leash walking is still a disaster. It’s a very big, heavy and strong dog and that’s the only aspect of his training that didn’t went too well. He’s still a very enthusiastic dog and because of that, he often manages to pull me with him.
Potty training: I got this dog when he just had potty training, so unfortunately I don’t have any experience with that.
The house breaking was also not too hard, because Rudy was always very comfortable in my house.
