  1. Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I just had an interesting vet visit with my 6 year-old boy golden! The vet said that it looked as though his regular chew toys (Nylabones and Benebones, never real bones or antlers) were causing trauma to his gums. The vet mentioned that gum/tooth trauma can actually lead to cancer. So...

  4. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Hi, We will be getting our puppy in a week and we are super excited about it! He will be in his 7th week when we get him. We have set his crate and bought other essentials for the puppy (crate, pen, leash, food, treat etc). It is tough to decide on the toys. It would be great if we can get...

    I just learned about the Tether Tug dog toy and thought it might be good for my 3 yr old Rusty when he is out in the dog run. Have any of you had experience with it? On a site selling them I saw a lot of people that don't recommend them. My husband wanted me to order one, but I said I'd get...
  7. Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    My 9 month old puppy loves gnawing on his Nylabones and Benebones, and we sometimes give him peanut butter in a Kong-like toy, which he finishes decently quickly. The problem is that he occasionally gets into trouble. He's currently only allowed to wander the main portion of the house, and we...

    Apart from Kong and Nylabones are there any toys that are interesting that dogs could play with unsupervised. Mine never developed a chew toy habit so they got bored with the kongs after the food in them is gone and rarely play with them otherwise. Bought a Cesar Milan toy the other day which...
  9. Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hi there This is my first post so hopefully I am posting in the most appropriate section! I have a 21 month old intact male golden retriever. Temperament-wise he is wonderful - sweet, gentle and calm. However we have been extremely unlucky with his health. He has major food intolerances which...

  12. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I'm just wanting to know what toys people give their goldens and what they would recommend. Leo loves his toys but I just find that there isn't any toys he doesn't tear apart but he has fun doing it and that is the main thing :). The only toy I have given him that he hasn't wrecked is his Kong...
  13. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Does your puppy have a favorite toy to play with or to chew on? Lily, who is 4 months old, likes to chew on a Kong Tug Toy which is hard plastic. She prefers to chew on hard plastic rather than soft plastic or rubber. Her favorite toy is a small frisbee which she retrieves after I throw it...
  14. Fun Things for Your Golden
    We are so excited. We have found a puppy who we will be bringing home in another three weeks from a breeder here in SCAL. Any recommendations for reasonably priced websites? I'm familiar with PetEdge but would like some suggestions on others. Need to stock up on the right toys (nylabones...
  15. Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hey all! I am looking for some recommendations on websites that sell good quality dog toys, etc. Something different then what PetsMart, Petco, etc. sell. I am just wanting to get some different toys for our dog for Christmas, so if you have any websites you would like to share with me, and...
  16. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I have an 10-month old male Golden who has ADHD -- that is, he has a short attention span and cannot play with one thing for a long time. I tried using Kongs of different shapes and sizes, Buster Food Cube, Nina Ottoson's Puzzle Toys, Tug-A-Jug......he will either figure it out and get the...

    We brought Gus home last night from the breeder - he is 8 weeks old. So 24 hours in he's a model puppy - going potty as instructed, sleeping mostly through the night last night and even spending time in a house with 7 little kids, 7 adults and a 9 month old Bernese Mountain dog. He likes his...
