  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all! I picked up my 7 week old puppy about 2 weeks ago from a breeder in VA and I started to notice things about him these days. He doesn't seem to be interested in anything that I prepare for him. He will take a toy or a treat/chicken when I give him, but he will never ask or beg for more...

    We got Archie when he was 7.5-8ish weeks old from a good, reputed breeder. He was a darling the first few days, then things turned around. He's about 3 months old now. Here are the list of things Archie does around the house that has infuriated me. I need help, to fix these because my mind is...
  3. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hello! It’s the middle of the night where I live and I cannot sleep after what I just saw. We have had Chase since he was six weeks old and he just turned 5 months. (In hindsight our breeder was terrible but I was naive enough to think it didn’t matter. I know better now.) From the beginning...

    Hey, all! This is going to be a long post so I thank anyone in advanced for reading, I very much appreciate it. We have had our GR for about 6 months now, and he just turned 1 year old in September! We found him on a Craigslist posting, and the previous owners unfortunately did not take care of...
  5. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I'm a little concerned that Roxy, our English Springer Spaniel, is starting to show some resource guarding behaviors when Cleo, our 4.5 month old golden, and her are playing. They play a lot, and get along wonderfully. But I've seen some behaviors out of Roxy that I don't like when it comes to...

    Hi ALL! Tom (12 weeks old) is having a little problem while eating. He wouldn't eat if I'm not right next to him. I'm still mixing his puppy food with water and a little of soft food for puppies, but for him to finish his food I actually have to touch it and he will come and eat, and then he...
  7. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Been training him every day since he was 11 weeks. Before 7 months, he was a lot happier with what I gave him. I do two walks a day for an hour each. Obedience training and playing with dogs and people, included. When he was younger, he would be perfectly happy to sleep most of the day, and he...

  10. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi everyone, I'm really new to this forum but I've found it quite helpful when I needed information. My Golden Retriever Lilo was born Oct 3rd 2016, she's a fluffy sweet girl. However, she's terrified of almost everyone. I was shocked when she wouldn't allow anyone in the house to get close to...
  11. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello, I have read a lot on this forum and have found it so helpful while raising my sweet Clyde, but I've never posted. However, this issue is so distressing that I really need help! Clyde is 8 months old and we have had him since 8 weeks. He has generally been a great puppy with just a few...

    Hi everyone! So I have an 8 month old golden puppy, Princess, who is a very sweet girl 98% of the time. She loves us, strangers, and other dogs. She is never agressive towards other dogs or people, but she does sometimes get a little jumpy and overly excited when she sees someone new. (If...
  13. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My golden is 10 months, and I just got her about a week and a half ago from a great breeder. I got her to be a therapeutic animal for me, but this is turning out to be completely opposite. When I first got her, she was so loving towards me, and the only problem we had was a known problem -- she...
  14. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My wonderful little boy was a terror at the vets office. At 21 wks, he's been there a few time due to arriving full of worms, and getting into things. The vets office is use to seeing me with my very well behaved group of goldens and he wasn't quite as good on this visit. For some reason...
  15. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Our sweet Maximus, who will be turning 1 year on April 12th, was a DREAM puppy for us. I read a lot of stories on here about puppy problems, and for a lot of them, I was so glad we never experienced any of those issues. My friends joke that I should never get another puppy because Maximus...

    We recently rescued a white golden retriever who we found trying to get into the Target store by our home. She's happy, seems healthy, and was estimated to be between 1-2 years old. She wasn't chipped and we don't know whether or not she was spayed, and she's not used to being in cars/doesn't...

    Guinness is almost 4 months old now. We got him when he was 6 weeks old (yes, I know this is too young to take him home, but the breeder assured us it was fine). He was super loveable, playful, and is an amazing puppy most of the time. However, I have been struggling with disciplining him...

    I'm a first time dog owner, and I've had my golden since she was 8 weeks, she is now a year. She has gotten worse over the months, and she is super hyper active that it scares my 6 year old, she is constantly tearing up everything and chewing on his toys and stuffed animals, and literally will...

    Recently we boarded our year and 1/2 Golden Indy at the kennel, a kennel that my family has used for the last 40 years. Indy is a smart energetic and extremely loving Golden who is always fully engaged and interactive with all aspects of our daily lives. Following his 3 day stay at the kennel...

    I have a 2 year old golden named Rio (Not Neutered) - I've had him since he was about 3 months old. I've trained him myself, he's always been obedient, and has never had any behavioral issues before. Recently he's started to disobey me, doesn't come on command, doesn't listen to commands, just...
