14 Month Old Golden Retriever Behavior

My husband and I have a 14 month old Golden Retriever that we have had since she was 8 weeks old. We are wondering what we should work on to help curb her biting “mouthing” behavior? She constantly wants to put her teeth on us to “play” and sometimes takes it to a point where she’s not trying to hurt us, but does because she constantly wants to chew our hands, pull shorts/pants, bites feet etc. she has an abundance of chew toys but rarely even notices them even when you try to redirect her behavior by putting them near or in her mouth.

We are also experiencing some trouble keeping her off the counters, ever since she could reach, if you are in the kitchen she seems to think her paws belong on the counter sniffing out or tasting or stealing stuff from the counter!! It is not always food but has been paper, paper towels, sponges, etc...


Any suggestions for these two of her most common stubborn behaviors would be great!

The chewing really should have been dealt with a long time ago, lol. Get up and walk away. Praise when she chews her bone. Honestly... I love golden retrievers but my first one was a chewing nightmare too and I'm not sure I'll ever get a young one again because of that...


For the counter, well, you need to be proactive and not leave anything on the counter where she can reach. Or gate the kitchen when you're not in there. I have a newfoundland and often the only safe spot is the top of the fridge or the microwave! Dogs LOVE paper. Oh and we got a bread box too, but just a bin on the counter would work.
