  1. Puppy Suddenly Refusing to Go on Walks

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I have a 16 week old female puppy (Briar) who all of a sudden refuses to go on walks in our neighborhood. Once she got her 2nd set of DHPP vaccines at around 11 weeks old, I started walking her around our neighborhood during my lunch break at work everyday (she is now fully vaccinated). she...
  2. Our golden is no longer getting in the car

    Golden Retriever Training
    Our 11 month old golden retriever is no longer getting into my husband's car. It is a Dodge Durango, so it has a high clearance. However, he was getting in and out of it just fine all summer and this fall. He recently stopped. We have a trainer, and she came over and showed us some great ways to...
  3. 17 weeks - scared of walking?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello all:wavey: Our girl had campylobacter at 9 weeks so her socialization was slightly later than it should of been. Anyway, despite this we think she's coped great, she loves walks but say after 10/15 mins, she starts jumping up the back of our legs constantly, if we turn to go back she...
  4. New Puppy - Depressed/Timid/Scared HELP!!!

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hey guys, I've been reading on this forum for the past month or so but this is my first puppy and first post - which is very long - so hang with me. I just got my new golden Jackie on Friday night. Everything seemed fine when I picked her up, but after the first few nights I'm starting to...
  5. Late Night Terror

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Scout starting throwing up at 3 pm yesterday. Thinking he may just have an upset stomach I decided to wait a few hours to see if he would feel any better. So far he has thrown up 3 times. 3 pm, 9 pm, 1am, and now at 3:30am. He is acting a little lethargic (he still wants to play outside, but he...

  7. My dog hates the vet!

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My dog, Diego, realllly does not enjoy going to the vet. He tries to hide behind the chairs, under the chairs, or stands by the door hoping to get out. I know I am supposed to ignore him, but it gets a little embarrassing. He's even peed on the floor, and pants heavily. Every time I've taken him...
  8. 14 month girl lies down on walks!

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi Everyone! I have been a big reader of this site since we got beautiful Asscher 1 year ago! (I have finally figured out how to start a thread.. pathetic!) She's almost 14 months. So, she's wonderful. A joy. Best thing that ever happened to us... BUT! She is controlling the walks and it's...
  9. Ongoing issues...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I have discussed these two things before but they are not getting better. I am more concerned with the walking habits versus the food. I know she will eat if she wants it bad enough.... 1. She is weird about her food. I can't figure out what the problem is. I thought it might be her bowl so we...
  10. Won't walk and scared

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I think I have been in denial as to how much Koda actually has anxiety issues...she has always been more submissive and timid but I just assumed that was how she was going to be. Nothing bad ever came from it and nothing has as of now either but I am not sure how to approach this with her. The...
  11. Need help with keeping my pup calm during a car ride.

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I feel so bad seeing Vanilla (6-week-old puppy) crying all the way to the Vet's. I have tried petting her, using my baby voice to soothe her and giving her one of her favorite toys... but nothing seems to work or distract her. She just whines through the entire ride. She also lays both her paws...
  12. Nervous for the groomers...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Tomorrow is Koda's first trip to the groomers, it was getting too difficult to do it myself so off she goes. She is still scared of it all when I do it so I am just worried how she will react with strangers tomorrow... Anyone else go through this with a scared pup..
  13. Dog won't eat, is scared and keeps barking

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I have a 4 1/2 year old male Golden Retriever. He is playful and healthy, he hasn't had any major problems. A few days ago he started to act weird, he wouldn't eat and wouldn't come near the house (he lives outside, in the backyard). After two days, he was normal again, but today he started to...
  14. Still afraid of brush

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Koda is almost 10 months and it is still a hassle to brush her. We started smearing peanut butter on the cupboard for her to lick while we brush but sometimes that isn't even enough and she tries to run off. After we are done she won't come by us for 1-2 minutes...it is so bizarre. When we...
  15. Fear of groomers

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hey all, I have a fear of taking Koda to the groomers. I am very protective of her, if you haven't noticed from previous post, and have a hard time leaving her with other people without my supervision. She is so fearful of anything grooming related in our house. It takes two of us to give...
  16. Timid towards other dogs

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi, Cara is 3-1/2 and for at least the last 18 months we've recognized a problem she has with other dogs. I can date it fairly precisely because we made a major family move at that time. I remember that she didn't have a problem (other than being labelled the class clown) when we took her to...
  17. Well, that didn't go so well...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    We tried taking Mia for a short walk a few minutes ago, but it didn’t work out so well... :( She wasn't doing so bad.. we had her on the leash and she had taken a few steps after being coaxed... we were a few feet from the house when this stupid kid, who’s parents left in the car to wait...
