  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi! I have had my golden male for 1 week now. Sometimes he may have accidents in the house, he rarely Pees in the house but he tends to have frequent poop accidents in the house. Almost 50% of his poops are in The house and the rest are outside in his pen. If he has an accident in the house I...
  2. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi! I have a 9 week old golden boy. I have had him for one week. He loves to bite things which I know is normal. He will bite my steel table, my clothing, shoes, my cupboards, pillows, blankets, literally anything once he is bored of his toys! Which I try to switch his toys up somewhat daily...

    Hi so I got my 8 week puppy 5 days ago! So he is actually 8 weeks and 5 days. I take him out pretty often to try and to pee, every hour or sometimes every 30 minutes, sometimes every 2 hours.

    When my 8 week male golden goes outside when I try to take him to pee or poo every 30 minutes or so, he eats the grass and picks up dirt and sometimes eats it. I try to pull it out of his mouth most of the time but I can't get all of it.. randomly he has picked up rocks in my backyard and I had...

    Our little guy is almost 9 months old and has just been diagnosed with diabetes. Tomorrow we go to the veterinarian and start our twice a day insulin shots. Have any of you had an experience with diabetes at such a young age? Our veterinarian stated that this is the youngest dog he's ever...
  6. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi I am curious how much an 8 week puppy poops on average! My little guy has been pooping about 2-3 times a day, I would say they are good poops and I am happy with them! Should he be pooping more then that? I am feeding 1/2 cup of Purina puppy chow 3x a day right now. It is what the breeder had...

    I put my 8 week old male in the crate (it’s his first night) and he starts crying the first few minutes when he is in the crate, it is a wired crate and we put blankets over top of it so he can’t see me and my girlfriend, I had the front of the cage without a blanket so he could see us but I...
  8. Howler's Murphy

    Murphy's Law; an adage or epigram typically stated as: "Anything that can go wrong will go wrong". He seems to purposefully pose innocently when my camera comes out so there is no shot of the time Murphy 'retrieved' the golf ball from under a golfer while they prepared to take their shot, or the...
  9. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My husband and I have to pick a puppy today. Unfortunately we were not able to meet the dogs in person and must choose via photos and videos. Right now we are between Mr. Blue and Green. From what we can tell, Mr. Blue is the leader of the group, seems to be the most outgoing and is the biggest...
  10. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    To start with, I am a HUGE worry wart! I am a diagnosed hypochondriac, so that makes things hard. My puppy is 6 months old and such a happy go-lucky little guy. Unfortunately, he has had several (minor) infections in his short life. He goes to daycare (and has been going since 12 weeks old). We...

    Hi folks – my husband and I are planning to bring home our first dog (a golden retriever) in July. We were planning to spend a week at a dog-friendly Airbnb in downtown Provincetown, MA in late August. It's a super dog-friendly town and dogs are allowed at the beach there, but wanted to gut...

    My 1 year old golden retriever died suddenly. About two minutes from her acting completely normal and then me finding her dead. She didn’t choke on anything and it looked as if she purposely laid down (didn’t appear to have fallen). Does anybody know what could have caused this?
  13. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi everyone! I've read a lot of threads about puppy behavior and wanted to ask for some feedback to make sure I'm doing the right thing. My 7-month golden girl is a very smart puppy. We got her when she was 12 weeks, she was already potty trained, she learned all the basic commands pretty...
  14. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all! I picked up my 7 week old puppy about 2 weeks ago from a breeder in VA and I started to notice things about him these days. He doesn't seem to be interested in anything that I prepare for him. He will take a toy or a treat/chicken when I give him, but he will never ask or beg for more...
  15. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    So my 6 month old pup, Nash, swallowed a shoelace (or similar looking string) at the park just over a week ago. 3 hours after the incident we decided to induce vomiting and nothing came up. The vet suggested only seeking help if he started to show signs of an obstruction (which he has not). Has...

    Hi all. My 15 week old retriever has been scratching a lot the past couple of weeks but it has gotten progressively worse the past week. He is scratching his belly area and had irritated one of his nipples because of the scratching. He also seems to have a red rash from itching so much. He got...

  18. Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    It will be a while before I actually get a puppy, along with the waitlist, I have my own timeline that I have to wait on for personal reasons. But far better to get on the list early and wait than to be ready and not be on the list yet! So, I get to be excited for the concept before getting...
  19. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hiya! So Moose turns 22 weeks tomorrow and he is 49 pounds! I really want him to be a strong and healthy boy, and wanted to see if this is a healthy weight for him. He is not overweight IMO. Once he hit five months I upped his food intake to 4+ cups a day- as well as how much he exercises (a 1.5...
