  1. Raw diets or Homecooked diets
    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...
  2. Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    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...
  3. Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    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...

    Hello! I'm new to this forum and have a 4.5 month old Golden. She's wonderful but has been having difficulty with loose stools. We have been feeding her Fromm Gold Large Breed Puppy since we brought her home at 8 weeks. She's has intermittent bouts of loose stool (approx 3 times over 2.5...

    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...
  6. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi Golden lovers, I have a Golden who would be turning 6-months old tomorrow. 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. I give him a fruit-filled (Apple...

    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...
  8. 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...

  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    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...
  13. 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...

    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...
  15. Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    Hi, I have a 5 month old golden boy, average weight at his age. Regular exercise (walks, playing), but not heavy exercise like diving, etc. I have been thinking about switching his food to one of the purina pro plan varieties. I have no issues about his current food (American Journey Large...
  16. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi, So the food I would like to feed my golden only has a Large Breed Puppy Food in a grain-free option, which I do not want unless needed and recommended by my vet for health reasons. The food I am looking into does have a Large Breed All Stages food, however. Would I be better off feeding...

    Hi, Does anyone feed their golden American Journey dog food? Specifically the " For All Ages, Large dogs, Chicken & Rice" - not the grain free one. Just curious. :)

    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. Her puppy food calls for 3 1/2 cups, where as her new adult food calls for 5 1/8 cups. Should...
  20. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi ALL! Tom (12 weeks old) is having a little problem while eating. He wouldn't eat if I'm not right next to him. I'm still mixing his puppy food with water and a little of soft food for puppies, but for him to finish his food I actually have to touch it and he will come and eat, and then he...
