    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi all, I need help before I start thinking about killing Henry. Henry is an adorable dog, I love him to pieces but he eats other dogs' poop and I don't know how to stop it! I saw online that it might be nutritional deficiency but I don't think that's the case for two main reasons: he does...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    This isn't really any issue for me in the suburbs, but when I lived in the city, I could see how it would be. I'm interested in hearing other's thoughts about this new technology. Using DNA to catch canine culprits - and their owners - Chicago Tribune

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    tI'm giving up to 1.5 cups dry honest kitchen with 1.5 cups kibble (divided by 2 meals) and my pup definitly has more poops as others have reported. I thought the healthier the food, the more it's absorbed and therefore less poop. Anyone know if that's true?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I always wanted a GR puppy, and yesterday I finally got one from a woman who bred them in NC. Abigail, Abby, is 9 weeks old. When I first got here yesterday, she seemed really timid, which is probably common since she changed environments. I have been looking for ways to potty train her as...
  16. How many times a day for poop?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Poop question! I'm sure this has been asked before, but I didn't find it. Is it normal for a puppy to only poop 2x a day? Sometimes 3 but lately it's just been 2.

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Hi there, We have a 5 y/o Golden who has never had any poop problems before. Right before the holidays, we noticed her bum had a bad smell. When we checked it out, we noticed she had some poop stuck in her bum area. We washed her up, and had to shave a little bit at the base of her tail where...
