  1. Biting us when in car

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I have just joined this fabulous forum! We adopted a male golden retriever, Louis, at 8 weeks. He is 14 weeks old now, and as busy as can be expected. He is sweet and follows me like a shadow. He is our first ever dog, so we're learning the ropes :) We've had two lessons of basic puppy...
  2. Our golden is no longer getting in the car

    Golden Retriever Training
    Our 11 month old golden retriever is no longer getting into my husband's car. It is a Dodge Durango, so it has a high clearance. However, he was getting in and out of it just fine all summer and this fall. He recently stopped. We have a trainer, and she came over and showed us some great ways to...
  3. Pet Harness and Flea Collars

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Interesting news expose on safety testing of popular harness and flea collars for dogs and cats. OnlineTV | Marketplace Story said only 1 of the 15 harnesses tested passed. Haven't seen any 2014 test results but the website has the SleepyPod ClickIt as the 2013 product of the year. Center...
  4. Can your dog fit/sleep in the front seat of a car?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hi guys, searched for this in threads but only came up with travelling options! I'm making a 12ish hour drive with Nana in the next two weeks (Moving out of state!) and I have no room for a crate as the back of the car is just full of boxes of my belongings. I will have a seatbelt+harness combo...
  5. Dogs in car in summer - Fact or Fiction?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I'm trying to figure out if we're just being over-protective Canadians or if this is a real concern so perhaps some of the vets on forum wouldn't mind jumping in. Regarding an incident of dogs left alone in a hot car this past Sunday. It's been slightly cooler of late with temps in the 21-24C...
  6. Whining in the car driving me crazy!

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Our puppy Belle is almost 10 months old. For the last 3-4 months she has started crazed whining in the car. She stands in the back and whines for at minimum half an hour to forty five minutes. This is only on the way THERE. On the way back, she is generally quiet and sleeps. I believe it...
  7. Any suggestions to make car rides more comfy?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My 2 yr old still hates the car! Well, my car ( a sedan). Just got a new sedan with AC/air in the back and roomier. She is fine going into my bf's coupe (lower seat and more grip maybe). Any suggestions for making the car rides more comfortable so she can get over the stress? Maybe it's too big...
  8. best car for dogs?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Okay so I think I might be in the market for a new car. I currently have a Honda Accord full of dog hair :) I'm looking for something that is good on gas and I'm wondering what the best car is for dogs. I have one 80 lb golden but I also take my dad's 80 lb labradane out with us quite a bit, as...
  9. Help with final decisions on pre-pup planning/crates, etc.

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    :) OK All~ You've been wonderful in sharing ideas. I'm finalizing some orders today and would like everyone's input. Please be specific as possible. I'll be purchasing a 3rd crate for the car. I'm leaning towards a wire one based on feedback. I'm also reading threads about dog...
  10. Taking dogs on errands etc. during the summer

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Is there any safe way to travel or run errands with a dog? I wouldn't mind leaving the car running with my big boy on guard, but police dogs keep dying in air conditioned vehicles, even with those safety features that roll down the windows while sounding an alarm. Today, I left the big dogs...
