when we are out walking the 5 month old golden lab ( Ryder ) walks quite well until he sees an aproaching person or worse dog.
all sense then goes out of the window as he tries to get to them and i'm sure i don't have to tell you all that he is getting to be a powerful dog and takes a bit of holding back.
how do we solve this one..

Hello,
My 7 month bitch Jet has exactly the same problem. She wants to play with every dog she sees! The only things I have tried are looking as if they are working, so I hope they do for you as well. At puppy class when she was younger we were told to say 'leave' firmly as we walk past other dogs and at the same time have a treat in our hand near her nose to distract her. Can I also suggest a halti lead as they can sometimes be useful in restraining over excited pups!
Good luck and dont worry, it happens to a lot of us! :razz:
