  10. Is this normal?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I'm curious if it's normal puppy behavior or if it's aggressive behavior that needs addressing when our 9 week old female bites onto my young children's clothing (dresses and soft leggings especially) and growls, shakes and tugs on them. She sounds fairly menacing, though of course it's cute and...

  14. Behavior - Puppy Aggression?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My sweet golden puppy is just 12 weeks old... When she is being "scolded" (ie. "No No" in a stern voice) she starts nipping, growling and showing her teeth. Is this true aggression? Should I be worried and how do I stop this? Thanks so much in advance!
