  1. How to Get Urine Smell out of Carpet

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi Everyone! :wavey: My husband and I just brought our new puppy, Bodie, home on Saturday. Things are, I think, going pretty well. He's basically taken to his crate and will bring toys in there to play, though he still whines when we close the door. He spends most of his day sleeping, but I...
  2. Rotten Boys dug an underground bunker

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I go outside to the back looking for Sebastian and see him with his butt up in the air in a hole that I just filled. Called him and he comes running. A few minutes later I see Rabbit coming out of the hole. The hole goes down and under. The tunnel was big enough for him and Sebastian to hide...
  3. Digging at carpet

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hey guys, A while back I had a similar post cuz Koda would dig at the carpet in the middle of the night - we figured it was just nesting. No big deal, she actually randomly stopped doing it. The last month or so she has picked up this digging habit again but not just at night. She does it in...
  4. Digging holes at the dog park

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My puppy doesn't dig in our backyard, but every time I take him to the dog park, it never fails, he digs a hole in the dirt/sand. Even when there are other dogs around to play with, he resorts to the digging. When I try to pull him away, he nips at me. Any thoughts/ideas on stopping the digging?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Koda has been digging at the carpet a couple times a night during the middle of the night. She will wake up, sit up and then start digging...we try to get her attention but she doesn't hear us and keeps going. Then she stops and lays down. We have a bed on both sides of us for her to lay on. I...

    So..big problem! Koda has started digging in the backyard..and my husband is not having any of it. She did it for the first time when he took her out to play last night. I wasn't home yet to witness it but he said they were playing frisbee like always and randomly she would start digging. There...
  7. Help please, we have a digger!

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    My husband and I have been commenting a lot lately about how much better Riley is doing, in so many ways. He isn't biting as much, he behaves better in the living room, and is just generally becoming a nicer puppy to have and be around. Don't get me wrong, we have loved him all the way, but...
  8. Digging until her claws are bleeding

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Any ideas? My 3.5 year old girl, not spayed, has suddenly taken to digging at the base of my two gates to escape. She has escaped twice. She gets pretty good exercise with me (and her twin brother). I've had plenty of normal digging problems, but within the last few weeks or so, she's been...
