Will our English Cream Golden Retrievers, please shut the door behind them?

We have level door handles that our dogs have learned how to push down, push the door in and come on it. Now, this has only been a from the outside coming in problem — until recently.

Rory, has learned to push down, pull open and go outside! If they would ONLY close the door behind them, it wouldn’t be that much of a problem.

The other night I was in my office working and it was getting REALLY hot in here. I thought it very unusual that Billy would have cranked up the heat, but upon investigation found our kitchen door standing wide open! It was only 17 degrees outside. Boy, do I hate to get that heating bill!

Not sure how to teach them how to close the door behind them, any ideas? What is that my mom used to yell at us kids? “Close the door, you weren’t born in a barn!” Well, neither are our English Cream Golden Retrievers.

Billy & Debbie Franklin have been married for over 25 years! We are city girl meets country boy and living happily ever after! We live in the “boonies” in Arkansas, with our numerous English Golden Retrievers, Mr. Tom Cat, cattle, and horses.

We have filled our home with “furry” children, since our human ones had the audacity to grow up into amazing young adults, move out, and begin taking responsibility for their own lives!
