  1. Smelly Dog

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hi all! I have a two year old golden retriever. He’s pretty awesome, but a problem I have is that he smells so bad! Especially now that’s it getting warmer, it’s getting worse. He’s usually fine until about a week after his bath. I was using a dry shampoo until I realized that was probably part...

  3. Puppy terrified of bath

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Anyone have any experience with a puppy (or older Golden, for that matter) being TERRIFIED of a bath? How did you get them used to it -- and how long did it take? He's 13 weeks old, and we are no aware of any negative experiences he has had with water. We got him from the breeder at 8 weeks...
  4. Shiloh in the bath - with video!

    Golden Retriever Videos
    I finally got a video of Shiloh joining the kids in the bath. It's not as funny and wild as the first time I wrote about a couple of months back, but it was still a fun time. She kept inching towards the kids tub and licking the water and trying to slowly sneak in. I wasn't in the mood for a wet...

  6. Bathing Your Golden

    Golden Retriever Grooming
    I wanted to know what everybody else does in the winter time with their Goldens. Also, do you bathe your dogs inside or outside? (I wash mine outside) Is it difficult to wash them in a bath tub? My male dog has arthritis, and bathing him in cold water has been getting more irritating for him...
  7. Arg! Puppy bath rant

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I had an argument with my memaw earlier about bathing Beau. She gets mad at me EVERY TIME I bathe him. I've given him probably 4 baths since I got him (he's 4 months right now) and I'm mainly doing it so that he'll be okay with baths later in life and it won't be a hassle. It's part of my...
  8. When is the best time to introduce puppy to the tub?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I know that any baths should not be given until they are at least 8 weeks old. Well, Riley (exactly 8 weeks) is not dirty at all, she smells very good actually (with the help of puppy wipes/grooming). However, I want to get her introduced to water at some point, for my own entertainment and...
