  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello all! My girl, Nellie is a little over 8 months old, and I’m itching to have her run with me. It would only be twice a week, two miles at a time, and when it finally cools off 🥵 But I was wondering if there was a socially/medically acceptable age for us to start doing this? Again, it...
  2. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
