  1. Aggression in my 6 month old puppy

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi I have a six month old female golden retriever. She's a beautiful little thing but I'm having trouble with her still biting my children and getting aggressive when we try and put her lead on. It happens when we are getting her ready for a walk and need to touch her around her neck. I have...
  2. Nipping

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I have a 12 week old puppy and sometimes she is super on a walk and other times she hangs off the back of my coat, rips my jeans and comes close to drawing blood. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get her to stop this behavior?

  4. He thinks his tail is a chew toy

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Bodie has always kinda chewed on himself -- nothing major or concerning, as far as I can tell -- but sometimes can get a little excessive. I'm not sure why this is, but I'd be open to suggestions/insight if it's something more than typical puppy behavior. ANYWAY, a couple days ago I noticed...

    Rotten kid, we just noticed the boy started chewing up are baseboard trim. He already chewed the carpet in our spare bedroom. He's now 22 weeks and he has lots of chew toys. Bad thing is our house is listed for sale and I keep having to fix this stuff
  6. Teaching the incline ramp early to save when they get older

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I'm so happy with Sebastian today. Due to having 3 previous older goldens who had issues getting in and out of the SUV, I decided to teach him early how to use a dog car ramp. My boy made me proud. It only took him 3 times to figure it out. He didn't have a problem with the incline...
  7. Sebastian & other puppy's fighting getting too rough

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Sebastian is my almost 14 wk old boy. When he came here at almost 7 wks we started with my 10 yr old golden Daisy hating him. Now she tolerates him most of the time. He's a bit bull headed and all boy, very active and wild. She was always the submissive out of my three (other 2 went to the...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    So I have a 44 pound 19 week old male golden retriever puppy that I have started in doggie daycare. I set him up to go twice a week when nobody is home all day. I brought him in the morning and he seemed to be fine, and called once during the day and they said everything was going good. The...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    3weeks ago I got a golden puppy. She was 6 weeks at the time.She is nippy,&constantly barks and growls at me. My hands are covered in scratches&bite marks. I have heard that if a puppy is sold before 8 weeks they haven't learned bite inhibition. So this might be the reason that no matter what I...
  12. First golden puppy HELP!

    What did you DO???
    I just got my first golden retriever & she's a bit of a handful compared to the few other puppies I trained & raised. I feel so bad because I want her to know I love her but I have to keep pinning her to the floor and telling her no because she doesn't know when to quit. She bites and nips hard...

    Emma is one now and I swear within a week of her birthday she has gone mad!! Chewing wall, just testing us all the time. We take her swimming almost every night as it is so HOT in Texas. After much throwing of stick she still comes home and is all wound up. She demands a lot of attention. I...
