    Hello! About a week ago my husband and I got our first golden retriever! We are in love! Her name is Georgia and she was a stray (we think she was dumped and had actually been shot in the head with a BB gun) who showed up at our friend’s house. They couldn’t take her, so we did! She is...
  2. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    I am interested in getting a golden puppy as my first dog within the next few months before I move out to Oregon (I currently live in Virginia). I am looking to spend $1000 or less on a puppy before vaccinations etc., although I spoke with a friend who spent $800 on all three rounds of...
  3. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi! I just brought my beautiful girl home on Saturday! I love her to death but she’s been... difficult to train. She won’t try food that isn’t in a bowl, to the point that I had to shove a little glob of peanut butter in her mouth yesterday. She also cries when put in the crate unless she is put...
  4. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I’m so excited to be bringing home my first golden retriever puppy in 8 days time on Christmas Eve. He will be 8 weeks old when I pick him up and we are going to be calling him Bear! We already have a 2 year old Bailey the beagle who is great with all dogs and puppies at the park! I have two...

    Hello, I am new to the forum. My husband and I (recently empty nesters) are starting the search for a new four legged family member and I am hoping to learn and get some good advise. I have had dogs my entire life including a collie, healers, labs and a shih tzu. We lost our shih tzu Maggie just...

    Hi everyone, my name is Kathy and I just recently got my 3rd golden, my second as a pup. We have had him for 3 weeks, he is 10 weeks old and unlike my last golden literally a ball full of energy. He likes to go crazy in the morning when he first gets up and when he goes to bed. I just this week...

    Hey guys! My name is Ryan, I am a sophomore at the University of Alabama and have been wanting a golden retriever for a while now. I am finally in a position to think about getting one, but I don't want to rush into anything. I want to do some research and make sure that I can offer the best...
  8. Golden Retriever - You've Adopted or Rescued
    Hi golden family! I'm Chloe and I live in Los Angeles. I currently own a puppy mill dog. Let me back track a little and tell you how I got here! My husband and I were looking to adopt a dog. Now seemed like a good time to do it, since our 8 month son was just starting zoom around crawling...
  9. Other Pets
    So, my husband & I have a 2 1/2 year old Golden that we absolutely ADORE! I have wanted to get another Golden or an Aussie for some time now. I love both of these breeds (preferably a Golden). I'm partial to long haired dogs & I just love their temperaments. The other day, my husband was at the...

    This is the first time I've posted but I have been reading advice from this Forum ever since our wonderful pup walked into our lives! We have a good natured female Golden who is essentially a member of our family. She doesn't spend much time with other dogs, but absolutely loves people and is...

    Hello, New to this site. New to being a Golden Retriever owner! We brought our 7 week old baby Luna home this weekend. She is the absolute sweetest thing ever. The first day with her she immediately took to us, and followed us around. She had quite a few accidents (luckily only potty!) but with...
  13. Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    So we just got a new Golden Retriever and absolutely love her. However, its been hard to contact the foster mom for any more information so I have a quick question. She's 4 yrs old and we've had her for a day so she doesn't quite have a daily routine yet when it comes to going to the bathroom...

    How long did it take for the new dog and the resident dog(s) to get along? And how long did it take before you could trust them being alone together? I am considering adopting a 1.5 year old poodle mix, and my current dog is 9 months old. They both are neutered males. Pluto is very playful...
  15. Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    (Advance apologies for the long post) My wife and I had been talking about getting a dog for a while, but were still a bit undecided. We had decided that if we did get a god it would either be a Lab or a Golden, and we agreed that we would keep looking at the shelter from time to time, and if...
