  1. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi all! This is my first time writing a post, so bear with me! We have a 4.5-month old golden retriever puppy, named Miles (he's the cutest 😀) who recently has been providing us with a bit of a headache. He got the final vaccine to start walking outside on 17th June and we already had got him...
  2. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    I have an almost six month old golden. I started leash training with him pretty early on since he was abouth 9 weeks old. He walks very well on the leash most of the time, not pulling and staying close to me on my right. Over last month and a half we have slowly but steadily worked on taking him...
  3. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    our golden Tucker has recently become afraid of walks around our neighborhood. This started about a month or so ago and seemed to coincide with a period of a few days where there were TONS of birds in our neighborhood. During our walks during that time, Tucker became visibly nervous and afraid...
  4. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I’m in Canada and it has been getting as cold as “feels like -20(celcius) over here. I have no problem taking my dog on a walk in these cold temps as when you bundle up with warm clothing it’s not bad at all. I am more concerned for my 10 month old boy. I know his winter coat isn’t fully in yet...

    I am not sure if this is health or behavioural related so I decided to post here. I have a beautiful golden who turned 4 in May. She has always been very active, and enjoyed on leash and off leash walking. For her whole life, we have gone on walks mostly 1-2 times a day, depending on the day for...

    I want to take my 6 month old golden on a hike this weekend. I’m unsure how long she’ll be able to go without risking injury since her bones aren’t done growing and her growth plates aren’t closed. Also, the weather just started getting warmer so I’ll make sure to take breaks for water etc...

  8. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Full disclaimer, I have health anxiety and often get paranoid. So I am not sure if I am looking too much into things or if this is normal behaviour for a puppy. I am also a bit paranoid because my parents' lab (who I helped raise until I moved out when he was 1 year old) has elbow dysplasia and...

    Our Ollie is now almost 6 months old and quite a fun handful of joy. One thing we recognized is the importance of some exercise for him. We have been going on short walks with him around the block while he goes potty. We have been using the same harness for a bit, and he doesn't scratch it when...

    Hi there, My partner and I are having some trouble with our goldie, Maisie. She's 5 months old, so we expect a little bit of acting up from her, but we aren't really sure how to manage this one effectively? So basically every now and then about halfway through the walk, Maisie will grab hold...

    My dog, Diesel, is now almost 10 months old. He’s a bundle of energy and takes the most hardcore naps 😂. I’m curious if anyone else has had experiences like this. He can only go for about a 10-15 minute walk around the street and then he is pooped. Like he will proceed to chug water then snooze...

    Hi everyone! My GR Thor and I are new to the forum but I've been visiting this ever since I planned on getting a golden. Thor just turned 8 months old and his energy during walks never seems to end so my question is would it be alright to start training him to jog or do rounds of sprints? My...

    Hi! We have a 13 week golden girl named Maui, who is so smart and do all the trained commands really well at home. However, whenever she is outside, everything she learned just goes over her head. I understand this is normal puppy behaviour and she is curious about the world and finally just...
  14. 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...
  15. Golden Retriever Training
    Question to people who walk their golden and push a pram/stroller at the same time: My golden is a 1y10m male that CAN walk beside me, but has to be under command to do so. Water, ducks and females make him mad and he loses control. I'm expecting a baby in June and have some time left to train...

    Lilo is sort of a shy dog. He took a few days to get used to the apartment, more than I expected to really, but now he roams the place like he belongs. Problem is, I live in a small apartment. Lilo is 3 months old and has A LOT of energy, and as much as I try to play fetch in my small living...

    Anyone have experience with the Wonder Walker? I just ordered it for Foster from Dolan's Doodads in Seattle. He currently wears a harness that clips in the back and his Puppy Kindergarten teacher had mentioned we should try a front-clip one. Any good results from front-clip harnesses?
  18. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Our puppy is just about a year old (we'll have to switch forums soon, but this seemed like a puppy question!) She is PERFECT 95% of the time. She's the sweetest cuddler, patient, quiet, never barks, just wants to participate in all activities etc. When we take her on walks, she is excellent...

    Let's take a walk. I walk Fitz around the block twice a day, a little over a half of a mile, total. He is 4 months old. Is this enough? when can I go even further? he gets his final shot this week. It seems like he just doesn't tire after our walks, he has even more energy than when we left...
  20. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My 2 y/o golden retriever, Charlie, has a habit of stopping on walks and sitting there until you go in the direction he wants you to. Often this is towards home, but sometimes its towards the dog park in my neighborhood. Some background: Charlie does not display this behavior during winter...
