    Golden Retriever Grooming
    Hi all, Greetings from Sonoma, CA, where it is 90-100 degrees every day. My 4 year old golden Lucky was really feeling the heat. Sleeping next to the fan all day long and very sad. In an error of judgment, I asked the mobile groomer for a "summer cut" and the groomer clipped Lucky way too...

  6. Dogs in car in summer - Fact or Fiction?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I'm trying to figure out if we're just being over-protective Canadians or if this is a real concern so perhaps some of the vets on forum wouldn't mind jumping in. Regarding an incident of dogs left alone in a hot car this past Sunday. It's been slightly cooler of late with temps in the 21-24C...

  13. Taking dogs on errands etc. during the summer

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Is there any safe way to travel or run errands with a dog? I wouldn't mind leaving the car running with my big boy on guard, but police dogs keep dying in air conditioned vehicles, even with those safety features that roll down the windows while sounding an alarm. Today, I left the big dogs...
