  1. Puppy with a toddler?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi, we just lost our sweet Coop after 13 years. One amazing thing he did for us was introduce our toddler to the world dogs. She is now obsessed with dogs just like we are. However, she's only 16 months old so while we can't live too much longer with another GR in our lives, we're worried...
  2. 2 Weeks and Question

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello All! It's been a long 2 weeks since I have rescued my now 5 month old pup. She's been a pain and a delight all in one. I've never owned a retriever breed and have learned of the gremlin personality once she touches water. Lots of fun. :) I work from home and have spent most of my time...
  3. Submissive peeing

  4. 9 month old Golden nervous/aggressive toward my youngest child

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I have no idea why, but about 6 weeks ago our female Golden retriever, Cider, began acting tense, and slightly aggressive to our youngest child, a 9 year old boy. She will curl her lips and sometimes give a slight growl when he tries to pet her, unless someone else is near being a "chaperone"...
  5. My "first-born" hates my human son

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My golden, Mozzie, is a little excitable but in general is a really well behaved dog. My husband and I got him before we had kids but knowing children were in our near future, one of the main reasons we went with a Golden is because we wanted a family dog. When we first brought our son home...
  6. Looking for Advice on 8 month old around kids

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hello, I'm just discouraged I guess. My s-i-l brought her four kids over last night, ages 15, 12, 10, and 4 years. Maizie has been laid back and relaxed a lot more with just me and my DH. No kids in the house regularly. Well, it is like an electric current of energy goes through Maizie...
  7. 10 month old bit my son

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone, I'm very worried because our ten month old male golden retriever pup bit my son last night. The thing is I can't really blame the dog for this reaction. My nine year old son wanted to "cuddle" the puppy while he was chewing a bone that I had just given him. The dog growled, turned...
