  1. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    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...
  2. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    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...
  4. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    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?
  9. 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...
  11. 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...

    Hello all:wavey: Our girl had campylobacter at 9 weeks so her socialization was slightly later than it should of been. Anyway, despite this we think she's coped great, she loves walks but say after 10/15 mins, she starts jumping up the back of our legs constantly, if we turn to go back she...

    This is Boone, my 4-year old male Golden Retriever. Here are videos of him walking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yEeQgon--Y and https://vimeo.com/115754816 As you can see his butt/hips sway sideways as he is walking. It's probably just because he has less fur on him, but I am sometimes...
  14. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I am getting my first golden retriever puppy on January 1! I have had many other dogs in the past and none of them have ever been able to walk off leash. I go for walks and see peoples dogs just walk beside them without a leash! I wish my dogs would do that! I looked up on it on the internet and...
  15. Golden Retriever Training
    Hi, we're taking puppy obedience classes and we're on week 2. Hina is pretty good on walks with the help of her training collar. I'm conflicted with how I should walk with her outside of class. We're told to keep our leash at our belly button and keep her at attention by my left leg...
  16. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    My golden, Chessie, is almost two years old. Like many dogs, she is an angel in the house. She's always sweet and 100% obedient. Outdoors is a different story, as I understand can be the case with many dogs. She's always been quite "feisty" and independent. I love to spend time outdoors...

    It has been incredibly cold here in WI this week. This morning when we woke up it was -6 with -25 windchill. We haven't been able to take Koda on a walk since Sunday afternoon - I feel soooo bad. I dont think it is safe though to be walking in this cold of conditions. Even when the temps are in...
