    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi! New here and new golden pup parent. We got Lola at 14 weeks old this week. A little older than usual. Breeder has already been crating her at night so we were confident she’d be fine here. First night was horrific. She was so stressed. Barking, crying, banging and evening pooing. We...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    We just got our puppy Pippin a week and a half ago (he's now 10 weeks old). Our end goal is to have him go everywhere with us: beach, hiking, shopping, etc. but he HATES the car. Front seat is a little better than back seat, but still not his favorite. He starts shaking when we head to the...

  6. HELP! Separation anxiety?

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    A little background... Our puppy, Rylee, is 16 months old. When we got her at the beginning of last summer, I stayed home with her for about 2 months (I'm a teacher). During this time, we crate trained her. She is 100% crate trained. Doesn't whine, try to get out, etc. Sometimes, she will...
  7. Recently Moved...Dog Might Have Anxiety?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    We recently bought a house and moved last Saturday and since then we have noticed that our two year-old golden seems anxious. We used to have a fenced-in backyard in our previous house so he was free to go to the backyard to potty. In the new house, however, we haven't fenced the backyard in...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    My vet is partnering with a veterinary behaviorist to address Charlie's anxiety. I rescued Charlie in March '14. He is very noise phobic (fireworks, thunder, etc). I've posted about it on other threads. We've worked the gamut of natural/holistic/behavior modifying methods with modest...

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    We have a lovely 5 year old retriever who is showing signs of being anxious when a family member steps away from the group but can still be seen and I was looking for any tips to help train this to make things easier for him?

    Hi Everyone! I need some help/advice please. Bailey, my almost 3 year old girl, is EXTREMELY scared of bubbles (yes, bubbles!), kites and sails of any kind.

  14. Won't calm himself- help!!

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My golden, Murphy, will be a year on Saturday. The problem is he will only relax when he is in his kennel. There are only two speeds: full and asleep. I can't leave him unattended for more than 5 minutes or he destroys things. When he's out of his crate he's either wrestling out other dog or...
  15. Dog Possessiveness and Aggression

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I just rescued a 2-3 year old golden. She was found abandoned in a backyard, they say she had babies within the past 3 months. If she has a toy and my cats come too close she begins to growl. I believe she has snapped at one of them before when we were out of the room. When I went into the...

  17. Digging at carpet

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hey guys, A while back I had a similar post cuz Koda would dig at the carpet in the middle of the night - we figured it was just nesting. No big deal, she actually randomly stopped doing it. The last month or so she has picked up this digging habit again but not just at night. She does it in...

  20. Won't walk and scared

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I think I have been in denial as to how much Koda actually has anxiety issues...she has always been more submissive and timid but I just assumed that was how she was going to be. Nothing bad ever came from it and nothing has as of now either but I am not sure how to approach this with her. The...
