  1. Keeping warm in winter?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi there, Thinking of buying a goldie pup soon, however s/he will be staying outside for up to 9 hours a day, and I'm concerned about how to keep him/her warm in winter. Our winters get down to around 5 degrees C at worst, but it never snows, and the day can get up to 20 degrees and very sunny...
  2. Winter Weather

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone! Roomba is now 5.5 months old and doing awesome. The nipping/land-shark fits have stopped, she's 100% house trained, she knows her commands, she's super friendly and loving, and she's doesn't bark (this could be both good and bad!). Now, here's my question: we live in Chicago and...
  3. Snow between toes

    Golden Retriever Grooming
    Hello! I'm relatively new to owning dogs. I live in a cold climate that gets a pretty decent amount of snow. My golden retriever, Jasmine, loves snow, but hates it when the snow gets stuck between her toes. Is there is a way to prevent this? Can I trim the fur between her toes? If so, is...

    Tonight and tomorrow are supposed to be extremely cold. Not as bad as the Midwest or Canada, but much colder than normal for around here. Ben usually likes cold weather. He gets excited and a little more energetic and he loves to roll in the snow and ice. However, tonight it will be about 6...

    Duke is wearing me out today! We did our long walk (3 miles) even though it's freezing out in Chicago and sidewalks were slick. We met a new golden (Rowdy, 1 year old, +107lbs golden) on our walk and played for a bit. Then it was time to come home because the weather was starting to get...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hey guys, hope you had a great thanksgiving holiday. So winter is finally kicked in and we're noticing a trend with our 5 month old puppy Comet. When we bring him in after a walk in the cold weather - he stinks. He stinks bad for a few minutes! This will happen even if he's had a bath that...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I know it is summer, but I was at the local sporting goods store and found an interest in trying cross country skiing this coming winter. However, before I purchase the gear, I am wondering if my golden retriever will be okay with me on my excursions. I live where we can get a good amount of...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My pup is about 11 months now. Thinking of taking her to a friend's cabin in the snow. Does she need booties to protect from the ice/slipping?

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Sneezing and coughing puppy Hi all, I just adopted my baby girl and her former family told me she's got a mild cold and that their vet's giving them Enrocin mixed in her water. She's sneezing and coughing as well as breathing heavily and I'm very worried. She didn't have her shots yet. Any...
  10. Pregnant female in the cold?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I have a golden I believe is pregnant. It's to early to know for sure if she is. Expecting pups around Valenines Day weekend. I was wondering how the cold outside will effect the pups. She likes being outside during the day, doesn't beg at the door. But it's getting in the teens on some days...
