  2. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello, My partner and I are getting a puppy soon. We’ve been visiting the litter weekly for about a month now, but since we have second to last pick, we didnt wanna focus on one puppy too much and already get attached. We did notice that one of the puppies would repeatedly come to me and most...
  3. Golden Retrievers Main Discussion
    Hi! I have a 14.5 week old golden from a great breeder in North Carolina. She's VERY well behaved but when she has her moments, she seems to get nippy with only me, not my partner. She'll get super energetic and nip at my pant leg as I'm walking away / trying to disengage. It's never malicious...
  4. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi, Fairly new to something like this but hoping to get some actual commentary and guidance to our exact situation. My fiancé and I have a wonderful male golden named Jackson who is just about 2 years old. We each have previously had other dogs and I even had several retrievers prior but he is...
  5. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi All, Éowyn is getting bigger by the minute - she's a little over 5 months now, and my guess is she'll be about 90 pounds full-grown. When she was tiny, I couldn't wait for her to get bigger so she couldn't make mischief under the bed anymore. Now that's she's getting bigger, I almost wish...
  6. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi there, My partner and I are having some trouble with our goldie, Maisie. She's 5 months old, so we expect a little bit of acting up from her, but we aren't really sure how to manage this one effectively? So basically every now and then about halfway through the walk, Maisie will grab hold...
  7. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I have a 13-week old golden retriever puppy who's usually very sweet and friendly with other dogs. We've started taking him to a daycare 1 day a week that has a separate puppy area - the puppies stay upfront in the lobby with the secretaries, and typically there are 1-4 puppies at a time...
  8. Golden Retriever Training
    My 4 month old puppy has been having episodes where she lunges, growls,and bites me in the arms and face. She seems like she is really trying to hurt me, and will not stop when she is in one of these moods. This happens particularly when I don't let her have something. For example, I made her...
  9. 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...
  10. Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    I don't know how much of this is a physical condition and how much is pure behavioral problems. We got Rusty from a Rescue last October. He is 3 yrs old and he attacks his hind leg and foot, growling and snarling. The vet said it was a seizure and put him on phenobarbitol. He wasn't having...
  11. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My 2 y/o golden retriever, Charlie, has a habit of stopping on walks and sitting there until you go in the direction he wants you to. Often this is towards home, but sometimes its towards the dog park in my neighborhood. Some background: Charlie does not display this behavior during winter...

    Hi! Hoping for a little advice. We rescued my boy Frankie from a puppymill in Mo. He was extremely malnourished and ill when I brought him home. At 12 weeks he weighed 8.1 pounds, had parasites, and a severe URI. That was 7 weeks ago. He now weighs 24 pounds, been treated with 2 rounds of...

    Hi everyone, thanks for taking the time to read this post... it might be a little long, but we are really in need of some serious advice, so please offer anything constructive. Lucky is just coming up 6 months old now and he is starting to become increasingly difficult to manage. He seems to...
  14. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone, This is my first post on the Forum but I'm a longtime reader. I just brought my Golden pup, Ellie, home about 10 days ago. She is really something! So full of personality and can be such a love. There have been some moments that have been overwhelmingly frustrating though. She'll...
  15. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My Golden is only about 18 months old right now, but she acts like she's a senior! I'm completely okay with that--she's been like that ever since she hit about a year and a couple months and is basically a couch potato unless we're playing ball or hiking. I used to have to work at her not...
  16. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi there, Just wondering if anyone has done any agility with their retriever and whether anyone has any experience of, or advice on young stubborn males and jumping up. I do weekly beginner agility training with my 3 year old male retriever. Sometimes he is great, picks it up immediately and...

    Hi. I'm new to the forum. We got our Golden Retriever when he was eight weeks old. He is now about ten months old. He is usually very sweet. He loves our whole family and he loves giving kisses and he is very sweet with other dogs and people. The whole issue with him is that everyday around dusk...
  18. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Rio just turned 14 months. He's been great (aside from jumping) and hasn't been chewing anything over the past few months. A few weeks ago he started chewing up my shoes again (he did this when he was younger) and over the past week he's chewed one of our chairs and a rug. Is he regressing...
  19. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    So Laika had her first vet visit yesterday and did very well! Although at the end of it as we had to wake her from her nap, she was extremely grouchy. It was better later on and we gave her the heartworm medication and revolution before bedtime.. And we had never really heard her cry so much...
