Good Luck!

Joining from Sweden and it is really interesting to compare the advice given here and on Swedish sites.

Hi there!

I am in Sweden as well, In Stockholm, but I am originally from Australia so maybe my advice will be slightly different to Swedish advice... but here it is. LOL. It's a bit long, as I just wrote this to someone else asking about a biting puppy... :-)

"Hej! B och oss är bra, tack. Bentley är lite rädd på båten men det går bra i alla fall.
Var det du som skrivit en inlägg i Golden Retriever forum om valpar som bita??
Ha ha... ja!! Bentley bett jätte mycket när han var liten. Det är helt normalt för retriever valpar att bita och det är hur de leka och lära med varandra. Man måste tänk liksom en hund... när valpar bita varandra de också "yelp"... like a high pitched short scream. Efter det, hundar ****a att bita för hårt för att de lära att det ont.
So... every time he bites at you or nips at your legs or hands or clothes... yelp like a dog that's just been hurt and refuse to play. Don't pull your hand away too fast too soon because that will only invite him to play more and possibly even break your skin. Those little milk teeth are SOOOO sharp and it will hurt lots of times and leave you with scratches all over your hands and arms, but it's important to teach him it's not okay to nip or bite too hard. Eventually he'll learn to control his jaws. We used a big oven mitt in the beginning to protect our hands. To this day, Bentley still likes to pull Lars' socks off in the evening and run away with them... only now he's much more gentle and the adult teeth aren't as sharp.
By the time Bentley was about 6 months, he had learnt to be gentle... but he still jumped up and nipped... so... this will sounds horrible, but it's honestly not... I nipped him back. I actually bit him on his ear a little and he yelped. After that he never did it again because I spoke to him in his language, so to speak. I didn't hurt him, of course, but he needed to understand it wasn't okay, and that's exactly the way dogs do it with each other.
Once he's had all his vaccinations, make sure he socialises with other dogs, as well. Of all ages, sizes and breeds. The best way to teach a dog is with other dogs, I think. We took Bentley to dog parks as soon as it was safe. It teaches them good social behaviour and older (well behaved) dogs won't stand for nipping or biting, so they learn pretty quickly.
Even now, at almost 18 months, he can be rough when taking things from my hand, like I always have to remind him "gentle" before he takes it, but he always listens and he's even really gentle when we play.
Some Golden's even greet each other by mouthing... this is when they'll actually nip each other harmlessly and some even do it when they meet new people, they'll take someone's hand in their mouth. So it's natural for them to do it, we just have to teach them what will hurt and what won't.
Goldens also have a natural chewing instinct. So they are incessant chewers. For this reason, don't leave around shoes or anything you don't want chewed and make sure he always has something he is allowed to chew on, like a bone or toy.... if he chews something you don't approve of... tell him no, take it off him and replace it with something he is allowed to chew on. This, in the long run, will also limit biting because their need for using their jaws will be met.
All this will be a test of your nerves (I cried many times LOL) but it will all work in the long run and as I said, it's completely normal for a Golden puppy to nip and bite.
I hope this info makes sense... it will take time, but I promise it will work"

I'm new, lol. My family and I have two goldens : Ivy and Zayda.
Ivy is two years old, and Zayda just turned one year old a few days ago. (They grow up so fast). Ivy is our prissy princess, who loves to curl up on the couch, be dressed up, and be touched. Zayda is more of a tomboy and loves to play ball and doesn't really like to be touched. Haha. She'll stand it, but definitely doesn't enjoy it.
Ivy was our first golden, and first girl dog. Before her we have had male black lab mixes. They were great dogs and we love them/ miss them dearly.
Zayda was our second girl dog, and more importantly, the first time we have ever had two dogs at one time. They can be a hassle, but it is all totally worth the loyalty and love in the end.

Hi, I discovered this site and signed up here a while back but I guess I never posted?

Our beloved Golden passed away a year and a half ago at 16.5 years old. He was the most incredible dog and even at such a great age for a Golden, we were surprised and traumatized when it was time to let him go.... it happened suddenly and unexpectedly for us. A long walk the night before, then a trip to emergency the next day when he suddenly had trouble breathing and all indications after an ultrasound were that he had hemangiosarcoma that had invaded his body suddenly and it was time to let him go. We have struggled with the thought of getting another dog and really really miss Cody.

We just looked at some 7 week old pups today and may be taking a new Golden puppy home in a week! We have our pick of two males. I am leaning towards the blonder of the two (mostly so he looks different from our darker last dog). This puppy was laying with its legs straight back when sleeping, I'm not sure if this is a good sign or a bad sign?? He is going to be the bigger of the two pups we can pick from as he is already bigger and his paws are bigger too. Having a tough time deciding... The biggest question here is if laying like that is a positive sign or something to be concerned about? If there might be a concern we will probably choose the slightly darker smaller puppy.

Any advice?

Hi always go for the bigger pup as it proves that he was getting all the right nutrients starting in his mothers womb and no worries at all about the legs stretched out behind him that is a sign of him being completely relaxed' as he gets older might not do that very often as he matures.
He sounds a wonderful boy and this is only my personal opinion but I love to see a good sized golden as that is how they should be.

Let us know how you go ' I know you can never replace your wonderful old boy but having another Golden will certainly bring joy back into your lives again.
Oh and its really good that your boy reached the ripe old age of 16 years' hope our Shane 11 years goes that long.

We went with the darker golden, we just have a soft spot for the darker goldens. He was born October 7 and we brought him home on the weekend.
We had a big pen but dismantled it and never used it. So far he doesn't seem destructive at all, pretty much has the run of the house. We take him outside when he wakes up or after he eats and we have had very few accidents.

He had his first shots before we brought him home. They said the pups had all been dewormed, as they had just given them all something to eat like a piece of kibble that did the deworming? (So the deworming does not show in the vet record).

He seems quite itchy, scratching and biting at himself fairly often. Is this something we need to be concerned about? Or is this normal?

When is it recommended for a first vet appointment? He shouldn't be exposed to other dogs until he is a bit older? Or we just need to be sure the other dogs are vaccinated?

I would take him to the vet right away and have him checked over.
