    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Yesterday a friend brought over their mix (part pit bull) rescue dog of 8 years. My golden and she did fine for the day. The other dog really wasn't into playing but nothing happened. Until I made the mistake of giving them both a chew. My dog left hers and went over to the other dog's and...
  2. puppy growling when taking chew

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone! I just introduced bones/chews to my 4 month old golden puppy this week and have had some problems with potential resource guarding. I bought a new chew with chicken (his first meat chew) in the center and went to take it out of his mouth when I noticed he had started eating it (I...
  3. Help with our 10 month old girl.

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Okay. Olive over all has been a pretty easy puppy. She's really sweet with people, and is fantastic with other dogs. HOWEVER! There are some traits that we have noticed her picking up, and they've been near impossible to stop. Prelude: She goes to daycare, or is very well exercised every day...
  4. So Frustrated!

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Help! I'm at my wit's end with my 14 week-old puppy! It's not the house training, as that is going very well. I'm home, so am able to keep him on a good schedule. We play/eat/go for a walk in the morning, then into the crate until noon. At lunch we eat, play, and train, then into the crate...
  5. 7 month old aggressive issue

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi guys, I wanted to hear your opinion on how best to handle the following issue. Our puppy is a female almost 7 months old. She is wonderfully obedient inside the home and performs some tricks too. She eats her food only after we give her the go sign. She does sit, stay, down, kiss and is in...
  6. Help! Land shark puppy when it's time to come inside...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi. We recently added a very loving, very sweet, sometimes sassy 9 week old golden to our family. We lost our beloved 13 year old golden last Spring. Needless to say, it's been a while since we've had a wild bundle of gold in our midst! She's house training really well- often asks to go...
  7. Puppy provoking other puppies/dogs to play?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi, I've been the proud owner of a golden retriever puppy for a month now. She's a 12-week rowdy little girl, and a very frequent and loud barker. I've been taking her to puppy socials 3 times a week since she was 10 weeks, as well as letting her meet older dogs for short periods of time. At...
  8. Major Worries w/ Aggression

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My GR puppy is 4-months old. We got her at 8 weeks. She gets LOTS of good attention, exercise, and is never left alone for more than 2 hours at a time. She actively seeks out human interaction and is very submissive when making contact, i.e. - immediately rolling onto her back and...
  9. Sebastian embarrased me at the vet

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My wonderful little boy was a terror at the vets office. At 21 wks, he's been there a few time due to arriving full of worms, and getting into things. The vets office is use to seeing me with my very well behaved group of goldens and he wasn't quite as good on this visit. For some reason...
  10. Puppy is snarling and biting hard

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hey everyone! Koda is about 3 months now and I've experienced a lot of (hard) biting and snarling whenever she gets worked up from playing or being outside and doesn't want to come in. I'm worried because I don't want her to be intimidating to other dogs and people when she bites and snarls...
  11. New 11 week puppy showing aggression?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi there, We purchased a puppy from a breeder earlier this afternoon and have seen him behave in what seems to us as very aggressive behavior that we'd like to have some input on. He was playing with a larger dog who was showing submission by laying on it's back when our puppy lunged at the...
