  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    what are some ways I could tell how tall my golden boy is gonna be? Anything I could look at or where he should be at by a certain age?

    How many pounds will a male golden put on after 7 months of age. My boy is about 21 inches tall I believe and 45 pounds. About to be 7 months old.
  3. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Is it normal during the 6 month mark or at all for that matter for a golden to plateau in growth for about 3 weeks and only hair grow? My boy has been at dead 44-45 pounds for about 3 weeks now. He will be 7 months by December 12. I have no idea how to expect how big he will be either.

    Hello again! I'm just curious if Cleo is on track to be a normal sized golden. (I'm talking breed standard.) She seems to be pretty lean and on the shorter side. Her mom was a little on the tall side and her dad was a big boy. Cleo was the runt of the litter, but everyone told us that runts...

    Hi guys! I’ve seen SO many different ranges and speeds of growth in goldens and I’d love to see pictures of your pups in the 5-6 month range :)
  6. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    We got Winston at 8 weeks and he was only 4.7 lbs....he is a leaner, darker golden but he was still much smaller than average. He is now exactly 7 months, and only 40 lbs. His father was 65 lbs, and his mother was 55, so I knew he would be on the smaller side, but I didn't think he'd be this...

    Hi everyone, I have a 6 month old pup (Brix) and he's only 30Lbs. lately, he starts to lose his appetite, and only eats almost a cup of his dog food a day instead of 3 cups. He's very active and playful, but I'm really worried about his growth. He seems really smaller than the pups his age...

    Our beautiful Bella is now almost 5 months old and 50 pounds! We picked her up at 6 1/2 weeks from a first time breeder, (more of a rescue!) She has been such a wonderful pup so far! She has been to a hotel, elevators, waterfalls, bridges, ocean, rivers, hiking, car trips, etc. She has been easy...

    I have a 2 year old Golden Retriever who has a list of issues. But today I noticed she has hard growth like thing inbetween her toes on her front foot. It's a weird color and is hanging on there very well. We have a follow up appointment at the vet next week I'm just wondering if I need to go in...
  10. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi Fellow Golden Owners- I have a healthy, energetic 6.5 month old golden who is eating about 5-6 cups a day. The vet says he is at a great weight and everything looks on track. I wanted your input on what age is appropriate to switch the feedings from 3 times a day to 2 times a day. Also, when...

    We are looking at different foods for a golden retriever puppy will be taking home sometime during the week after August 6th. The food we have been looking at is the Diamond Large Breed Puppy Lamb and Rice Formula. On dogfoodadvisor.com it gets 4 stars and is pretty cheap. I know it's specially...

    Attaching a picture to see if this should be a concern. Her back foot paw has a small white/light pink bump that resembles a human's zit. Anyone know what this could be?

    On the advice of PrincessDi I'm reposting portions of an earlier post here from Cancer forum in hopes that someone may know something about protrusions from a Mast Cell Tumor. My 14 year-plus Golden girl Sassy developed a Mast Cell tumor that ruptured last Wednesday. She had this lump for...
  15. Cancer Information for Golden Retrievers
    My 14 year-plus Golden girl Sassy developed a Mast Cell tumor that ruptured last Wednesday. She had this lump for more than year along with many others that had been previously biopsied and determined to be non-cancerous. Given her age we decided more than a year ago that if she developed cancer...

    Hello everyone! This is my first time posting here. I wanted to share something that's going on with my dog right now in the hopes that someone else might stumble upon this post when looking facing a similar issue and be relieved to find some information. My golden, Apollo, started acting...
  17. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I'm new here and also a first-time puppy owner. My husband and I just returned from a two-day trip and noticed that our 5-month-old puppy's front legs seem sloped from the paw to the first joint... like his wrists are weak. Is this normal? (growth spurt related?) It seemed his legs were...
  18. Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    Cap is almost 6 months old and I still feed him 3 meals a day. He seemed bored with his Science Diet Lg Breed puppy so I switched to Science Diet adult a few weeks ago. It's smaller bites, which he loves. My breeder suggested switching to adult food at 6 months, the vet says 9mo-1yr, a dog food...
