Watch This 12 Week Old Mini Golden Retriever Learning Commands

Mini Golden Retriever

When it comes to smart animals, dogs are probably one of the most intelligent.  But some dogs learn faster than others.  Many canines can learn simple commands but this often takes time.  Some dogs in their puppy stage would rather play than listen to their owners trying to teach them commands.  But the Mini Golden Retriever puppy in the video below seems to be learning at a really young age.  Maybe this is due to the fact that its owner is so persistent but this is definitely one smart little dog.  It’s fun to watch this little guy in action and seeing him listen to his owner is something you don’t see every day.  I know my dog at this age didn’t want anything to do with the learning process.

I don’t know about you but I have tried to train my dog in the past when they were at this stage in life. But instead of listening to my commands he would run off and play with his older brother. After hours of trying I finally got him to listen.  But this dog seems to be getting the commands down pat the first time around.  If only my dog had been this easy to train.  One of the things I have noticed about the video is that the dog is actively listening for its owner to give him the command.  This is a sure sign that this dog is thirsty for knowledge and wants to learn.  It’s no wonder why this pooch has learned so much in a short amount of time.  He is truly a really good student.  After he has grown up more I can imagine that he will know all kinds of command and will probably be able to do a lot of neat tricks.  I’m sure we will see this dog popping up in a lot more internet videos in the near future.

Make sure to check out the video below and maybe watch with your dog around.  They might actually learn something from this very attentive dog.  There are not many dogs around that take a command so easily.  It’s really a joy to watch this animal perform at such a young age.  So watch the video and you to will be amazed at this very clever canine.
