  1. American line GR in UK KC

    Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Hi everyone, 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
  2. Anyone have reviews of Open Farm kibble?

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    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...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    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!
  5. Microchipping Age?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    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!

  9. Are German Shepherds different from Golden Retrievers in terms of Shedding?

    Like Golden Retrievers, German Shepherds will “blow coat” at least twice annually with the changing of the seasons. They, too, will need brushing once or twice per week to help control shedding... any experiences?
  10. Question for Golden Breeders

    Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Hi! I've been in contact with a golden breeder who posted an ad for his puppies before they were born (he later explained that this was done in fear that the virus would deter people from wanting to come see the puppies/adopt if he posted it after they were born). I filled out a puppy...

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    My family and I have been deciding on whether to neuter our 2 golden retrievers who are 1 year 3 months old. Does neutering help them to be less aggressive and would they stop thinking about 'those things' when they see a female dog? I did a little bit of research and found out that there are...
