  1. Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Hi everyone! I have a golden retriever named Sunny and he is 8 months old. I just bought him a new 30ft leash to play fetch in parks and work on recall. I usually teach him heel and to focus while on the walks and I will give him one piece of kibble or one very small piece of chicken sausage...
  2. Golden Retriever Training
    Hi everyone! I have a 15 month old male golden. I do lots of training with him and he knows lots of tricks. I have been focusing a lot on recalls lately and while he does come to me almost every time I call him, I really need to make sure it’s 100% of the time. When we are at an open park...
  3. Golden Retriever Training
    I figure this is a long shot, but does anyone have any trainers that they'd recommend for a board & train program? I talked to a company months ago where a trainer would take your dog for 2 or 3 weeks into their own home and replicate your dog's routine and layout. I wish I remembered the name...
  4. Golden Retriever Agility & Obedience
    I have recently been a lot more serious about training Eevee for Obedience. We’re currently in the second session of an Advanced Obedience class working on heeling and Open exercises. To give a little backstory for my question, most of the other class members went to a trial at the end of...
  5. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello, we recently adopted a 5-7 month (not sure exactly how old he is since he was a rescue) red golden and he is precious! He is very loving and loves to run around outside and LOVES FOOD. He recently started growling when we touch his food or him while he eats. Also, when I give him bigger...
  6. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello! We have a wonderful english cream golden retriever puppy Rosie. She just turned 9 months old and is showing excessive energy. I work from home most days so she is given a lot of freedom. She always has behaved and done well outside of a crate so she has free roam of our house, and she...

    Hi! I have a 14.5 week old golden from a great breeder in North Carolina. She's VERY well behaved but when she has her moments, she seems to get nippy with only me, not my partner. She'll get super energetic and nip at my pant leg as I'm walking away / trying to disengage. It's never malicious...
  8. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone! New here and looking for some tips for our 13 week old golden, Juniper! We got her at 8 weeks old on January 1st and it has been a very fun, exciting and exhausting first month with her and we just love her so much. She is incredibly smart and picks up on most things very quick so...
  9. Golden Retriever Training
    I live in an apartment and don’t have a yard so I made a long line for my boy so that we can play fetch and he can run around in open grassy areas that aren’t fenced in. He is 7 months and does not yet have a reliable recall yet. We did a 6 week puppy manners class and then went right into a...
  10. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Good Morning! I've done a ton of research on this and am looking for any and all possible solutions. I love my pup Walter more than anything and I'm the parent, so the blame for poor behavior starts and ends with me. I'm really good about avoiding trash that he'd like to pick up and eat. But...
  11. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello Friends, My family and I have been having a blast with our best friend, Kobe. She's turning 13 weeks old this Sunday and when she's not being the worst, she's the best. She's doing great at learning commands! She knows how to sit, lay down, stay, recall, shake, go potty, and boop. She...
  12. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all! So I made some errors when I brought home my pup, Scout, at 3 months. We immediately did crate training and he did wonderful at night. I pushed him during the day for a 2 1/2 weeks because of work conflict (I'm doing this all by myself). Then for the next week and a half I only put him...
  13. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My male puppy is 6 months old! He is doing great with training and I want to teach him more. What are your thoughts on what else I can train him? Usually I watch a YouTube video and learn from someone on YouTube and train my puppy with what I learned! So far I have taught him: -potty training...
  14. Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Hello everyone! First time poster here (also posted this under the SD thread on this site but this main one seems more active). I have been scouring this page for a few months now. I have been trying and trying to find a good breeder for a service dog prospect. I am working with a professional...
  15. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi All, Éowyn is getting bigger by the minute - she's a little over 5 months now, and my guess is she'll be about 90 pounds full-grown. When she was tiny, I couldn't wait for her to get bigger so she couldn't make mischief under the bed anymore. Now that's she's getting bigger, I almost wish...
  16. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone! Just curious of if anyone has some training advice? My golden male is doing great. When I feed him is when I try to train him some tricks. I have taught him how to sit/down/stay/come and his name! Also when I feed him and put him into a down position, I tell him to stay with his...
  17. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi There! My husband and I are gearing up to get our Golden puppy in a few weeks. We are also wanting to start a family at some point in the near future, but decided we will hold off to ensure we have as much time as possible with the dog before we introduce a human baby into the mix. We are...
  18. Golden Retriever Training
    Hello everyone, first time posting here! We got our Golden Retriever pup, Freddie, just under 2 weeks ago (he's now a fraction over 10 weeks old) so I'm going to caveat this post with the fact that we know it's very early days and is still work in progress. Training is going okay, he's more...
  19. Golden Retriever Training
    Looking for suggestions or reviews on away training courses on the east coast. We are based in Washington, DC and would preferably like something close but we are willing to travel if necessary. Most of the courses I am finding on my online search are 2-3 week away courses which is what I am...

    I understand all breeders are different. However, I am talking generally. Does it sound like we would be a good home for a puppy / dog? My partner and I are both out of school (he is 24 and I am 26). Technically, I am still in school (grad school), but I defend in a couple of weeks so will be...
