  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)

    Hi everyone!!! I am a new mama to a golden, Layla Jane. She is turning 5 months old next Wednesday. We have an almost 4 year old Beagle and we wanted her to have a sister to play with.

    Our 6 month old male puppy had a long stretch (1.5-2months?) of no accidents in the apartment. He was holding it for stretches of 2.5-3 hours outside the crate. His problem has always been not letting us know when he needs to go.... He just all of a sudden will sit in the middle of the room and...

    Hey everyone - Just wanted to see if anyone has any advice when it comes to our specific potty training issue. Our 9 week old puppy seems to love to pee on anything fabric- rugs, bed, carpet, blankets, etc. but does not have accidents on the hardwood or tile. We take him out very frequently and...

    Hi everyone, next month I will be taking my new golden pup home. I've been doing non stop research and have come across a potential dilemma. A lot of the things I've read say to not take your puppy to high dog traffic areas (dog park, pet store, parks, ect) for risk of things like parvo, until...
  6. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Where do I go from here with potty training? I brought home a 4 1/2 month old female golden retriever pup about 2 weeks ago. She was an indoor dog, but did live on a farm so had a lot of outdoor time. The lady I got her from told me she was “mostly potty trained.” I wasn’t sure how to take that...
  7. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone! I’m a first time poster but have read a lot here. We are looking toward getting a pup in the future and I have a question about the dog run that I am planning. We had a wonderful Golden for many years and she sadly passed away. She had free reign of the backyard and she determined...
  8. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    We have a 5 month old female golden retriever. Since we got her at 8 weeks, she's consistently needed to be let out to pee every 20 minutes while we're home. (she's trained with bells so she lets us know when she needs to go). If we push her to hold it for longer, she will pee inside the house...
  9. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi, I just got an 11 week old Golden that is driving me nuts. If I let Max out in our yard (no fence, so I need to be there) then he eats mulch, chews grass, digs holes, runs from me and does not stop ever to do his business. I bring him in and then take him back out a few later to try again...
  10. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    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). He is 12 weeks old, around 17 lbs. and has the best behaving manners I've ever seen in a puppy. He stays on a play pen that I built for him at the end on the kitchen, where he has...

    Hello everyone, This will be a little bit of a long post, so I want to say I'm sorry in advance :frown2: I have a 6,5-month-old puppy called Sherlock, I will upload his picture here, so you all can see him :smile2: He is generally a very good boy, but I have some questions to more experienced...
  12. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello everyone, Our puppy, Sherlock, is 11 weeks old and we got him a month ago. We have been potty training him since the first day we brought him home. We take him outside every 45-50 minutes. However, whenever we forget for 5-10 minutes after it has been 45 minutes, he just pees or poops...
  13. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello everyone, I brought my new puppy Sherlock home yesterday, he is 52 days old. I just wanted your advice on some subjects. First of all, when should I start potty training? Right now, he is using a corner of a room as a toilet, and the corner is covered with newspapers and puppy pads. I...
  14. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone, I got my new Golden puppy three weeks ago and today she is 12 weeks old. She is the first Golden I have ever had and the first puppy I have ever had. In the past I adopted rescues who were already adults and house trained. My question is, how long does it take to potty train a...
  15. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone, I am brand new to the forum (and my puppy is brand new to our home). I have been reading around a lot on this subject, but finally wanted to post here to other GR owners. My 14-week old male puppy, who lasts the whole night in my room without needing to potty, seems to think his...

    Hello! New Golden mom here! Our Honey is 4 months old, and we are still having significant problems with potty training. My husband and I live in an apartment, and at first things were going really well...she would go to the door and whine when she wanted to go outside, even though it was every...

    Hello Guys! I am new to the group, new as a Golden owner. I've had dogs since I can remember, but I has been a while since having a puppy. I need some advice, my 11 week old Luna, spends most of her day on weekdays inside her Xpen since she cannot hold her pee for long periods. I don't leave her...
  18. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    At near 6 months, and in my possession for over three weeks, I thought I had the potty training done, but I may be incorrect. I take him out to 'his' place, I live where there is grass along the other side/curb, and he does his business at least 5 times per day, according to a schedule that I...
  19. Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    First off Potato has had soft stools since we brought him home at 15 weeks. At first we thought it was just him adjusting not only to us bringing him home, but us moving within three weeks of getting him, but the diarrhea (soft stools really) never went away. So, after about a week at the new...
  20. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello. I am a new-new pet owner. I have 3 young children ages 8,6 and 19 months. I chose to get a Golden Retriever because I've researched that they are good family pets. Also, I've read that they are highly intelligent and easy to train. Mainly though, I've always wanted a Golden Retriever...
