  1. Baring teeth

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My pup can be oh so sweet, he runs to me when I call him and rolls on his back- tailing wagging- letting me scratch his belly. If he has something he shouldn’t, he lets me take it from him, without issue. He lets me hand feed him and takes food and treats very sweetly. But when he is playing, or...
  2. Puppy Showing Rough Play

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I have a 13-week old golden retriever puppy who's usually very sweet and friendly with other dogs. We've started taking him to a daycare 1 day a week that has a separate puppy area - the puppies stay upfront in the lobby with the secretaries, and typically there are 1-4 puppies at a time...
  3. Puppy Play in SoCal

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I really want Ace to be able to interact with other puppies on a regular basis but local dog parks have some aggressive dogs. His puppy class that included puppy play just ended and I'm looking for a place where he can socialize without me being an overreacting mama and thinking if another dog...
  4. 1 year old Goldie playing rough with new pup

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi there! My family welcomed a new member of the family just yesterday and my 1 year old female Goldie, Luna, has been playing a little too rough with the little baby. Elly is a 2.5 months old Golden Doodle (dad - Standard Poodle, mom - Goldie). She's pint sized now, but when annoyed with...
  5. Suitable play / games

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Being new to retrievers, we've been searching the internet and asking friends about suitable games for our 10 week old pup, which has actually led to confusion. We tried playing ball, but someone told us that teaching them to chase / catch a tennis ball is dangerous as there are many cases that...
  6. When can I start playing fetch, running, etc. with my Golden?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all, I have a new Golden puppy called Ned who is now around 3 1/2 months old. My question is: when can I start playing fetch in fields, running, playing Frisbee, etc with him? I know the general rule (because of growing joints, etc is 18 months), but I'm noticing that on walks he's...
  7. Goldens in Las Vegas??

    Golden Retriever Events
    Hi! I'm curious if there are any dogs in Vegas that might be interested in having a puppy play date with my boy, Shiloh. He is 8 months old and his only play mate is a cat. I'm apprehensive to take him to a dog park because I've heard horror stories, and I think having some many dogs in one...

  9. Recommended Toys For Goldens

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I'm just wanting to know what toys people give their goldens and what they would recommend. Leo loves his toys but I just find that there isn't any toys he doesn't tear apart but he has fun doing it and that is the main thing :). The only toy I have given him that he hasn't wrecked is his Kong...

  11. Playdate in CT?

    Golden Retriever Events
    Hi, I'm new here. I have a 6 month old female golden who loves to run, chase, and wrestle. She is a bit on the submissive side, and we are really trying to build her confidence. We are looking for a few friendly playmates. I live in Hartford County. Thanks :)
  12. Dog Park Play

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    They've opened a new dog park nearby and we decided to stop in this afternoon while we were walking in the park where it is located. Ben has had limited exposure to other dogs - he's learning but still hasn't quite figured it out. We'd been to dog parks a few times before, and mostly he was...
  13. Tips/Advice

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hey, So I mentioned a little while back that my sister and I were concerned about how our dogs play together. Koda is 45 lbs (almost 6 months) and her german shepherd is 96 lbs (1.5 years). He is clearly the bigger dog lol. Normally he is the submissive one when he goes to dog parks and such...
  14. Playing with other dog

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hey guys, Back again with another opinion question. My sister has a german shepherd (almost 100 lbs) who is actually a very sweet dog. He is playful and happy and typically submissive. We have let Koda meet him a few times now. We would like to let them have play dates as she gets older and a...
  15. Puppy dominance or play?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hey all, I just posted a different thread but had another question as well. Koda is 14 weeks now and so playful and fun. One thing she does is when she has a toy in her mouth and we try to play tug of war she will sometimes jump up and grab our arm and prevent us from tugging on it. My husband...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    For those of you who have been following the pictures of stories of Ajax since last week or even the beginning, I think I mentioned that when I got Ajax, my sister also came up to the breeder and picked out the mellowest people-pleaser of the litter to bring home to her family. She has young...
