  1. 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...
  2. Royal Canine GR choking

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hi all, Our dog Henry has recently started eating Royal Canine Golden Retriever and he is loving it and looks great. But, frequently, even with the slow feed bowl, he ends up chocking. Nothing too horrific in the sense that it never lasts too long, but it is stressing us out. And I get up...
  3. Dog food suggestions?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all! I'm looking for a good puppy food that doesn't include poultry since my pup is allergic. I'd like to find one that focuses on fish/potatoes. I've researched many options, but I feel like every single dog food has reviews along the lines of "this dog food killed my dog", so I wanted to...

    Our puppy is just about a year old. We've struggled over the past year to maintain her stool-- after lots of tests and special diets etc., she just seems prone to loose stool.

  6. Kibble or canned? What do you feed?

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    Hi all, I'm a new first time golden owner, and have been trying to absorb as much info as possible from you all. I've been wondering lately if you believe kibble or canned food is the way to go? From observation alone it seems like a lot do go the kibble route, I'm wondering why specifically...
  7. 8 month old refusing kibble

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I first got Keller only about a month ago. He was on some pedigree puppy food formulation before I got him, with grains as its first ingredient, and had really runny stools. We started the transition after his first 3 days with us. He didn't eat much his first week, but I understand that could...
  8. Grain-free food intolerance?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi Everyone, I'm new to dog ownership & a first time poster :). I have a question about feeding my dog. He's a European Golden, 11 months & 85lb. He was being fed Costco kibble by the breeder, and so we continued that at home for about 8 months. I finally stopped because I couldn't handle...
  9. Which Kibble?!?!

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    I have always fed my girls Iams. But after doing a little research I feel like thats not the best brand to feed to Maci with all the corn and by-products and such. I was thinking about slowly switching over to Blue Buffalo. What do you guys feed your goldens and do you have any other food...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hello everyone. I'm brand new to this website. I am getting my very first golden retriever in 2 weeks and I am getting ready and preparing everything. I was a bit curious on dog food. I read up about how Iams and Purina and other commercial dog foods are very bad for dogs and I saw many people...

    So Laika had her first vet visit yesterday and did very well! Although at the end of it as we had to wake her from her nap, she was extremely grouchy. It was better later on and we gave her the heartworm medication and revolution before bedtime.. And we had never really heard her cry so much...
