  1. 9 week old refuses to go outside in hot weather

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Greetings. This is my first, and almost certainly NOT last, post here. We've got a wonderful 9 week old that's been home with us for a week and I feel like we're already struggling with some behavior issues--in the sense that the humans here aren't sure how to handle them. Going outside has...

  3. Problems applying medication

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Our Lucky is now 14 months old and recently went to the vet for booster shots. While there the vet pointed out that he had an ear infection in one of his ears, providing a bottle of wash and a tube of ointment with a long nosed dispenser so it could get deep into his ear. Simple enough, or so...

    :)Hello I live in Hassocks, nr Brighton, Sussex in the UK. Our Daisy is our second Golden Retriever and completely different to our last. Whilst our first Golden was always on the go, Daisy is calmer, which is lovely, but boy is she stubborn at times. I've joined this forum because I am...
  5. Stubborn puppy moments

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I need help with how to deal with our new puppy and her stubbornness. Each day as we walk through our woods, on a leash, I have to tell her the same "no" and "leave it", same things, same places, she just wants to eat the moss or dig that hole or eat that deer poop. I have been consistent, but...

  7. Mule Behavior on Walks

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I have a 9mth old golden/lab cross who will refuse to move when on walks. He'll stand still, refuse to move or sit down and my recent favorite lay down as if he's playing dead. He's on the lean side so not a weight or physical issue of any kind. He was neutered in November and prior to that he...
  8. Harley Nips and Jumps. HELP!

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Harley is a 13 week old pup. I love him, he's amazing, but he has some work to be done. He has always had a problem with nipping. If you are walking and he wants your attention or he is trying to dominate you, he will just grab your leg or your sock and pull. I have more bruises on my body than...
  9. The stubbornness continues...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Koda's stubbornness is getting worse. I am working with her on it now more than I did last time. She got better quick last time so I didn't stress but I am taking it seriously this time. The last two mornings it took me 10-15 minutes to take her out to potty and get her back inside. She doesn't...
  10. So Stubborn

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Ugh, I am losing my patience. Koda has become so stubborn it is getting old. When we go outside we take her out on a leash because we save the tie out for play time and she knows that. She loves to be outside and when I have time I have no problem sitting outside with her for a while but I dont...
