I'm trying to decide on what breed(s) of dog is best for being both a great family dog and a great protector of our garden. I'm creating this post in hopes of getting sort of an opinion poll from various golden retriever owners. How well would you say a golden does at protecting a...
I have a 3.5 months (rescue)golden retriever.
I absolutely love my dog and have no intention to give him away.
However I am worried if its possible that it's a pure breed golden retriever or a mix as he has very less feathers on his buddy and white underbody

Hi everyone! This community is awesome. So I get my puppy in about 5 days once he is 8 weeks old. The breeder has him on this Purina Puppy Chow which I understand isn’t the best puppy food based on my research. What are your thoughts on Purina Puppy Chow? I bought a bag of it as I want him to...
As many of you may know, I'm still searching for breeders. I'm aware that since COVID, the demand for Golden Retrievers has gotten quite high. How long did you wait for your puppy from getting on a waitlist to getting the dog home, during COVID?
Great lively and friendly forum!
Hope you might be able to help me with a query re. Golden Retriever for working gundog and field trials.
Found a breeder in the UK who advertises excellent quality (American line) Golden Retriever breed and top-class experience in the field ~ competed...
On this site's forum, there is this photo of a golden which I really like. It's on the right corner of this site's background, two beautiful yellow goldens, a puppy, and an older dog, that I REALLY adore. The color is just beautiful. However, I don't see this types of golden often, so I was...
I'm using gooddog, trying to find a good reputable dog breeder. The site looks really organized and nice, finding breeders are pretty easy.
They said on the site that breeders have to meet their health testing guidelines. Good breeders on the site meet the health testing requirements, great...
I would expect a Golden Retriever puppy to be sweet and cuddly, but after doing more research, I realized that I might be wrong.
From your personal experience, was your Golden puppy a sweet angel or a little devil? Did your puppy change a lot as it matured?
I plan to get a dog(a Golden Retriever specifically) soon. As I have never got a dog(or really any pet before, except for a fish), what are some of the biggest pieces of advice you wished you would know before you got a Golden?
There are so many awesome Golden Retrievers! Did you know that there are also many different types of Golden Retrievers too? Which one is your favorite?
English(or British) Golden Retrievers. This type of Golden is the lightest out of all of the Golden Retrievers. While they are not pure...
does anyone think that eventually the UK KC will recognise the American line GR or do you think that the AKC GR will always remain in the US.
I’m asking as I’m from the UK and I really like the shape of the AKC GR
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...
Hi everyone! I need your expert opinions on something that I am very new to — breeder research.
I am looking into one of the lighter colored Golden Retrievers (commonly known as “light creams”) and was looking into the breeder Grace N Goldens in Dallas, TX. It looks like she is a very active...
Hey everyone - does anyone have any insight into the best probiotics for dogs? My breeder recommends ProBios but I have seen some reviews complaining about the ingredients. I'm not a science/health wiz so I figured some people on here would know or have some recommendations. Thank you!
Hey, everyone. Does anyone know if there is an age threshold/how long to wait to microchip a puppy? Our breeder says she doesn't typically microchip that young (8 weeks or earlier) but by law in my area our puppy has to be microchipped by 4 months. Any opinions and/or advice? Thank you!
Hey everyone! I’m hoping to get some referrals for reputable breeders in TX. I am in the DFW area but am willing to drive. I have done my research and have had Goldens in the past but am relatively new to Texas and would love breeder suggestions and help networking. Our late Goldens were well...
