    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)

  4. Dog food suggestions?

    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.

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Our bratty girl, Buffy, has been on the same food since we brought her home as a puppy (Taste of the Wild Pacific Stream Puppy). She used to go crazy for it and scarf it down way too fast to the point that I was exclusively feeding her out of my hand or a Kong and then moved to one of those...

    Hi! I am transitioning my 10 month old golden girl from Royal Canine Golden Puppy Chiot to Royal Canine Golden Adult Chiot, and I'm kind of confused on the amount to give her during a 24 hour period.
