  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all, I’m new here. I’ve spent many a late night hour deep diving into posts and advice on this forum, so thank you to all you strangers who share here. You have brought me a lot of solace, and a lot of laughs (and tips). Rusty came home three weeks ago, and he is 11 weeks old. Rusty is a...
  2. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    SIGH so my 6 month old girl Nova has never been super mouthy up until a few weeks ago. She destroyed all her toys and I can only buy her West Paw toys. I thought we were making a ton of progress as I moved to letting her follow me around the house downstairs supervised in certain areas instead...
  3. Golden Retrievers Main Discussion
    First of all I want to make it clear that I love this little girl dearly and would do anything for her. Just needed to rant about the more patience testing moments she has. I've got an 8 month old puppy with looots of behavioral problems I don't even know where to start. She's very bitey which...
  4. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    We got our 7-week-old puppy on October 5th, 2021. He was sweet and we adored him right from the start, but we quickly realized that his biting was going to be a problem. He was utterly relentless–—redirection, yelping in pain, ignoring & disengaging were all useless methods. The only way to get...
  5. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all, Sorry in advance as this may be a long post! My partner and I have had Kipper with us since she was just over 8 weeks old (now 13 weeks). She's always been a fairly nippy puppy (the whole litter was the same when we met them), and we assumed it was just golden behaviour as I've read...
  6. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello all. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this. Our 10 week old pup could be perfectly calm just laying down, but as soon as she sees anyone (me, wife, kids) just walking away from her, she feels the need to get up and chase, nip, and play growl at our calves and feet. Is...
  7. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hello friends. I have a 17 month old female Golden. She is not destructive. She has good food and exercise. I have 2 problems: 1. when on a leash she pulls so much (once she sent me flying!). 2. When playing with me she tends to playfully bite but sometimes it hurts. Any tips for these two...
  8. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    We have an almost 4 month old female that is wonderful in so many ways. She gets out daily to the park or shopping center. Never nips anyone. At night, right before bedtime, she will jump up on one of the kids and nip. The kids (my teens) will say “no” and try to put a toy in her mouth. She...
  9. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Good Morning! I've done a ton of research on this and am looking for any and all possible solutions. I love my pup Walter more than anything and I'm the parent, so the blame for poor behavior starts and ends with me. I'm really good about avoiding trash that he'd like to pick up and eat. But...

    Hey everyone so Akira is now 14 months old and is still very mouthy mouthy. I have to admit she was taken a bit too young. The story to that was that her birth date that they told me from when i booked her was not the same with what her birth certificate showed. She is my first dog so i had made...
  11. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    We've had our girl Popcorn (Poppy) for about a week - making her 9 weeks now. She had her second (first real) vet visit today to get her booster vaccine and when the vet was palpating her she growled when she was by her head. She did it a couple times, only by the head, and at one point lunged...

    Hi everyone my adorable 13 week old puppy is in her biting stage. She is biting anything and everything. What bones/toys do you recommend to help them teething and keep them biting/chewing for a long period of time. thanks in advance!
  13. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all! This is my families first golden retriever puppy and she is currently 10 weeks old (we got her when she was 8 weeks) and she is an absolute love BUT we need some advice. 1. whenever she is outside she eats EVERYTHING (mulch, grass, leaves, sticks) and when we try to pick her up to move...
  14. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi, As per the one should NEVER let the puppy nip or bite you. I understand that it is a very natural urge for them to playfully bite us. What i follow is the following approach: I let her bite my hand. However, as soon as it gets hard i tell her "NO" and pull my hand away. This is also what...
  15. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi! I have a 9 week old golden boy. I have had him for one week. He loves to bite things which I know is normal. He will bite my steel table, my clothing, shoes, my cupboards, pillows, blankets, literally anything once he is bored of his toys! Which I try to switch his toys up somewhat daily...
  16. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi, I am a first time owner in the sense that i have never kept a puppy as an adult. We had a dog when i was aged 8 till 14. My wife and my elder daughter (13 years) are petrified of dogs and its only because of me and the younger daughter (8 years) that we got a golden 4 days back. The breeder...
  17. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hazel is 4 months old, we got her home a month ago to say she has been a lot of will be an understatement. I’m not sure if these are normal behaviour of something to be concerned: 1. she eats her poop. We will in an appartment and we will keep her in her pen and watch her like a hawk to remove...
  18. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    hey everyone, so Akira is now almost 9 months old and she is my first dog so Im learning everyday from her behaviors. I wanted to know will the nipping ever end? She never mean to hurt people but the way she invites people to play may be concerning to my guests. She nips people which can get...
  19. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hello! I'm new to the forum and a new Golden Retriever owner, so I have some questions regarding my puppy's behavior and whether or not anyone else has experienced this. He's almost 4 months old now, and he definitely has normal puppy play biting behavior, but sometimes he gets a little over...
  20. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I’ve got a 4 month old golden retriever who I’ve been taking to the dog park to socialize with other dogs. He is good with big dogs generally, but when small dogs get up in his face he gets aggressive and starts biting. Today a small Frenchie was riling him up and biting and my pup calm for the...
