    Hi all, It's the 5th Day of Tom at home, and for the first time he is staying alone for the entire day (9 hours).

    Golden Retriever Training
    I hope this was a good place to post, sorry if not. My family and I had recently purchased a GR puppy (4 months old). He's been pretty good so far (this is our 2nd day with him), he's pooped and peed on the floor (as I would have expected him to do so...), he seems happy and is constantly...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
