  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My male is just about 6 months old. He gets close to 4 cups of food a day (probably closer to 3.75) and weighs 36 pounds. How much to exercise him a day? Usually I try to do 1 walk a day at least, if not two walks which are about 20-30 minutes per walk. Plus running around with him in my...
  2. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I want to take my 6 month old golden on a hike this weekend. I’m unsure how long she’ll be able to go without risking injury since her bones aren’t done growing and her growth plates aren’t closed. Also, the weather just started getting warmer so I’ll make sure to take breaks for water etc...
  3. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My Golden boy is 12 and a half weeks. He's so energetic, I thought it was just me but the vet has said it too on hia visits. I was struggling to find ways to expend his energy so he could get good sleeps so I decided that I would bring him for a 3-4 minute jog down my street (no interaction...

    My 9 months old golden retriever girl is doing very well with leash walking. However I'm not sure if she's enjoying our walks or not. I give her total of 1.5 to 2 hours of walk everyday. We go to parks and sometimes big city intersections. She walks well with little bit of tail wagging and does...

    Hello everyone, My 3 years old Golden used to love his M-W-F walks with the trainer. Recently the trainer comes to take him he growls at my house staff and refuses to go. He has recently picked up quite a bit of weight, could it be that he has become lazy? Any suggestions or comments? Many...
  7. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi, I am currently researching how to best bring up a puppy, hoping to get a puppy by late feb/early march and I have heard a lot of people saying a tired puppy is a good puppy and to tire them out so that they can rest through the night.

  9. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Lilo is sort of a shy dog. He took a few days to get used to the apartment, more than I expected to really, but now he roams the place like he belongs. Problem is, I live in a small apartment. Lilo is 3 months old and has A LOT of energy, and as much as I try to play fetch in my small living...

    Hi! I have a 6 month golden male. We have been going to the dog park basically every day since he was fully vaccinated (4.5 months). We go for about an hour. Usually he wrestles around with the young dogs that feel like playing with him. Or he chases other dogs. This past week he really got the...
  11. Golden Retriever Senior Center
    Hi, I have an 8 year male golden retriever called T.J. He eats a normal senior diet to the required amount for his ideal weight (32 kg), he is prone to being overweight but I think that that is probably just because he doesn't get enough exercise. He has mild arthritis and has ruptured his...
  12. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Is it possible for too much exercise to make a puppy hyperactive instead of more tired and calm? My puppy will be 11 weeks old tomorrow. Yesterday being the weekend we spent the whole day outside working on our deck and yard and kept him out there with us. He seemed to love it, digging in the...

    Have a two year old golden retriever who I would like to start taking he on jogs with me. Have done some shorter runs with her 1-2 miles. Want to go a bit longer, but I don't want to push her beyond what is safe for her breed. Of course I run at her pace, when the weather conditions are a bit...

    Hi all. This is my first post in this forum. I just adopted a 2 year old Golden. I am his third owner! He came most recently from a family that found that he required too much effort for them. I got him home and discovered that I do not have any problem with his behavior. In fact I'm glad to get...
