  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi. I got my puppy at 8 weeks, I started him on 1/2 cup 3x daily of Purina Puppy Chow (I know not the best food but that is what the breeder has him on) and I would like to switch him to Purina Pro Puppy for Large Breed Dogs after. How many calories should he have a day? I recently bumped him...
  2. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hey there, I'm a first time dog owner and have had my golden for about 1 month, he's a little over 3 months now, we got his second round of shots when he was 3 months last Monday where he weighed in at 22 pounds. So according to this link he's literally at the perfect weight. When I first got...
  3. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello everyone I have heard mixed answers on when to switch my golden retriever to adult food. He is seven months and 2 weeks old. I have heard anywhere between 8 to 18 months old to switch him from all various sources. My thing is he is not the best eater and only eats small amounts. I’m...
  4. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello all. I've got an 11 month old male who eats Purina Pro Plan for puppies. At what point do people recommend transitioning to an adult food? Should I begin transitioning right around the 12-month mark, or should I wait a few more months as he might still have a little bit of growth...

    Hey all. New puppy coming up on 10 weeks. We have a promotion discount for The Farmer's Dog plan to try and wanted to know if anyone uses them now? Does the plan meet nutrition specs for Goldens? How is the pricing and is it worth it? I've read through the website. But looking for real world...

    Proud first time dog owner of a golden called Peanut. He's 9 weeks old and we're trying to figure out the best food for him. I'm a researcher and have come up with a couple of products that seem to be popular, PPP Large Breed Puppy or Wellness Core. Ultimately though I think we may go the raw...

    This is Ollie! He is 6 months old. He was first eating Iams then I switched him over the purina pro plan sensitive skin and stomach. He chooses not to eat his food a lot of the time. His schedule is 3 times a day. But he doesn’t want it. It is pretty expensive and I’m trying to find another...

    Hi all! First time posting, and first time golden owner in 2 short weeks! I know the topic of food has been discussed time-and-time again, but wanted to start one specifically around NutriSource. Doing my own research, I can't find anything wrong with the food. I plan to start on the "Large...
  12. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues

I feed him cold pressed dog food based on the recommendation chart provided on the bag, about 200 gms in the morning around 0700 hrs and about 170 gms in the evening around 1700 hrs.

    Open Farm seems to be the best healthy kibble option on the market. They're very transparent about their ingredients down to the exact bag and cook their kibble at 200 degrees F to retain nutrients. Does anyone have any first or second hand reviews of the brand before I give it a shot? Thanks in...
  14. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    I came across a breeder who, in their puppy contract, requires that you purchase Life's Abundance food for the entirety of the dog's life. The breeder is a rep and profits from this. (Extremely controlling and unethical, in my opinion.) Has anyone else run into this before? It's a bummer because...

  16. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Okay, so I’ve been on this forum a lot ever since getting my puppy in october. Ever since I got him, he’s had health issues. It started with on and off giardia, then went to UTIs, then went to food allergies and a uni-testicle. I am STRUGGLING. He is now 10 months old and on Hill’s Prescription...
  17. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all! My pup is now 9 months old and 63 pounds. He's pretty short, not lean but very narrow, and definitely not huge. He has a big allergy to poultry (don't know what else...) so he's been on Hill's Prescription Diet Sensitive Skin and Stomach for the past couple of months. It's helped his...

    Hi Everyone My Sully just turned 7 months and weighs 39 lbs. Is that average weight for the age? I feed him 4 cups a day total. 1 in the morning, 2 cups at lunch time and 1 cup at 5:30 pm. I am feeding him Purina One Puppy for Large Breed that was suggested by the vet. He has such a...
  19. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all! I'm looking for a good puppy food that doesn't include poultry since my pup is allergic. I'd like to find one that focuses on fish/potatoes. I've researched many options, but I feel like every single dog food has reviews along the lines of "this dog food killed my dog", so I wanted to...
  20. Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    I have an 11 month old (very active) golden who we've had on Purina Pro Plan since we got him as a puppy. However, I've recently had a lot of people recommending a switch to NutriSource and when I compare their ingredient list it does seem like Nutrisource has a better lineup of ingredients. I...
