My 4 months male golden weight 17 kgs is always desparate to eat and hungry.
Despite of good feeding he keeps eating watever he gets to.
I feed 175 grms of kibble and 150 grms of mashed boiled patatoes three times a day and lots of treats but this guy is still hungry.
He ate socks.... a coin....a lizard... and eats whatever he gets on his way while he goes for a walk. Plz help

Ashi, I have merged your threads so you have any answers in the same place.
As for your puppy, many of them go through a growth spurt at that age and are really hungry. It sounds like he is more or less the right weight, so I wouldn't worry too much about his appetite, though it may be necessary to feed him a little extra kibble while he's so hungry and growing. The problem of his eating everything he can lay his teeth on is something you will have to watch out for. It's time you work on teaching him to "leave it" and to really work on trading contraband for treats, if you haven't done this already.

Your puppy is a normal GOlden Retriever - however he sounds like he may be getting too much food. If he is 4 months old and is already 17kg (that is 37 pounds) and you might want to stop feeding him mashed potatoes. If he is eating a good quality kibble dry food, he doesn't need extra mashed potatoes. It's empty calories and will cause him to grow too quickly.

Golden Retriever puppies like to chew and put things in their mouths they should not, as you have discovered. If your puppy eats a sock it could get stuck in his digestive tract and make him very sick or ultimately kill him. It's very important that you keep everything put away so the puppy can't get it. Or use baby gates to keep him confined to a space he can't get these things. It's a lot of work, but it will keep him safe until he's older and you can trust him.

Here is some good reading for you, your puppy is already past the 16 week point but it will show you that you have not been starving your puppy and maybe should feed him a little bit less: Slow Grow

Maybe you can post a photo of him so we can see him from the side and a photo taken from above to see his hips and waist. He should start looking like a lanky, teenager soon. Being lean is better for his health than being a little too fat.
