  1. Chewing on Leash

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    So I have my 4 month old on a leash around the house and I hold it unless he's asleep mainly for the purpose of controlling him when he's rowdy and also making sure he doesn't chase our cats. Sometimes he will completely ignore it but other times he starts playing tug with the leash. I've tried...
  2. Help! Chewing EVERYTHING

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi All ! My 10month old puppy Sriracha, about two weeks ago he began chewing things he wasn't supposed too. We expected this as he is a puppy but it got worse. He has been chewing on table legs and our carpet. Like pulling the carpet away from the floor and eating it. We are gone most of...
  3. 8 week old puppy: I have some questions

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I recently got an 8 week old puppy and I have a few questions. The first question being, is it okay for my puppy to lay down... frog style? I know that GR's are prone to hip dysplasia so him laying down this way makes me worry. The breeder I got Koda from said neither of his parents have hip...

  5. Won't stop chewing on carpet at 18 months

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    So we need some help. We have an 18 month old named Tucker. He's always been destructive - he can't have any stuffed toys, even the "indestructible" ones because he can split the seams in minutes. Usually when he's free in the house, we can stop him before he chews things, but we're trying to...
  6. Our pup (now 2yrs) NEVER destroyed anything; he only chews his toys. Is this normal?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    To be fair, he was almost 4 months old when we got him from the breeder, so they might have started training him by that time. He loves his antlers, rawhide, and stuffed animals, but he never chewed anything at all and he doesn't play with anything but the toys or objects that we specifically...
  7. Chewing, chewing and more chewing

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Our boy, Bodie, who is now 13 1/3 weeks, chews on EVERYTHING! As to be expected, so its not a big deal except he really seems to like chewing on the brick hearth and our fireplace tools, which we just don't understand. Our best guess is he likes them because they are hard and cold? So, I'm...
  8. Casey chewing the wall

    What did you DO???
    So when we brought Casey home he slept in a crate in our kitchen at night. We did not have room in my bedroom or my parents bed room to put his crate, although the kitchen is only a short hallway from my room. So one night, I don't remember as what age, my dad decided that he's been really good...
  9. Excessive chewing

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My golden is a year old and is excessively chewing things up: couch pillows, rugs, remotes, etc. I provide him plenty of toys and exercise but any chance he gets, he is tearing up something he isn't supposed to. I have even taped the rugs to the floor, lol. When I'm home, he will walk into the...

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I have two Golden Retrievers. they were both born in May of 2013. I work from home and so they get constant attention, and are allowed to go in and out through the doggie door to run and play. However, in the past month they have taken to chewing on the walls (drywall). I have replaced one...

    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...

Its a great doggie door but my issue is how to get the 1.5 year old puppy to stop eating the plastic. I tried bitter lime spray but I think she thought...
  15. Please help with chewing situation

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Kali is 9 months old. I know she is still a puppy and a big puppy at that so it is hard to remember sometimes. Since my daughter was in the hospital for 6.5 weeks, I was not here for that time. She spent a lot of time outside in inside/outside kennel while my parents took care of my other two...
  16. 8-months old pup's scary behavior in the morning :(

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi! I got Appy back in March this year. She's been extremely lovable, with the perfect amount of 'naughtiness' :) Lately though, I've started noticing a hint of aggression and arrogance in her. It shows in day-to-day activities when calling her to me, making her sit, telling her NO. She follows...

    Hello, I just recently got my beautiful little puppy, Belle, and we've been having problems with her chewing. She chews on our rugs, chews on her crate, and on my clothes! :( She's just a little over a month old, so I assume she's teething? I'm not exactly sure, but we'd just like to control it...

    Hey all, Since I have gotten great advice thus far I thought I would try this out again! :) I am just wondering how to tell if a puppy is bored or just wants to be left alone. I have heard that chewing on things can be a sign that they are bored but I have also heard that is just a puppy...
  20. Almost Year old Golden having issues...

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Well, I am a first time dog owner, and even growing up, never had animals. My three year old kind of adopted this doggie. She's amazing with him, she's playful, a little rough, but she's just under a year old. Our puppy has been coming over everyday for about 3 weeks and finally, one day...
