    Murphy is currently 18 wks old and has been vocal since the day that I got him. You should hear him playing with his toys. For example, Whenever I am somewhere with Rosco (11mths old) and we see another dog or a person, Rosco wants to say hello and Murphy starts a barking storm. It's not a...
  10. My dog hates the vet!

    My dog, Diego, realllly does not enjoy going to the vet. He tries to hide behind the chairs, under the chairs, or stands by the door hoping to get out. I know I am supposed to ignore him, but it gets a little embarrassing. He's even peed on the floor, and pants heavily. Every time I've taken him...
  11. Afraid of everything except people

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I have a 2 1/2 year old Golden, Mason. I got him at 7 weeks old so I'm pretty certain he's never had any trauma done to him. He's absolutely great with people and has never met a person that he didn't want to play with and be petted by. We go on daily walks in which he sees other dogs and...

  15. Timid towards other dogs

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi, Cara is 3-1/2 and for at least the last 18 months we've recognized a problem she has with other dogs. I can date it fairly precisely because we made a major family move at that time. I remember that she didn't have a problem (other than being labelled the class clown) when we took her to...
