  1. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi all! Oakley, my two year old golden is exhibiting what I think are some separation anxiety symptoms. I'm confused though because I've had her since she was a puppy so I don't know why she'd be fearful of me leaving her. She's spent the week at my parent's house before when I've been away on...
  2. Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi guys, I wanted to hear your opinion on how best to handle the following issue. Our puppy is a female almost 7 months old. She is wonderfully obedient inside the home and performs some tricks too. She eats her food only after we give her the go sign. She does sit, stay, down, kiss and is in...

    Hi all, Now that Diesel is fully vaccinated, we've been enjoying going for more walks and adventures, which is especially great because of the beautiful spring weather we've been having. When we're out on the trails or conservation areas, we typically use a flexi leash so he can explore a bit...
  4. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all, Just wondering when we can start taking our pup for walks around town and grassy areas. He's just a little guy, just shy of nine weeks. We were told to wait until 2 weeks after his third set of shots before we take him anywhere where other dogs may have been..right now he's got his...

    Hi everyone! My almost 6 month old pup is really addicted to me, in general, in comparison to my husband and children (ages 5 and 7). She does ok when I leave the house, but when we are on walks and I try to tie her up outside a store for a couple of minutes or even try to leave her with my...

    Hi everyone, I now have an 11-month-old golden retriever pup (YIKES they grow fast) and this is our first winter together. He usually gets two walks a day, but I'm a bit worried about the 7°F temperature outside. I have heard mixed things like, "don't take them outside when it's below...

    My 7 week old GR (Chupie) has started to whine when we walk on the leash (off-leash he runs and walks and is absolutely crazy). however, whenever I take him on a walk he first resits a bit (sometimes a lot playing tug with his leash while I just stand) but eventually starts walking with me...
  8. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello! I'm trying to get my puppy comfortable walking around in the neighborhood but he's just not getting it! Everytime we walk past a house with a dog barking at us, he FREAKS out. I'm gently pulling him and I don't want to do that since he's only 11 weeks old!!! We've been practicing and...

    Hi everyone, I am new to the forum! My retriever is coming up to a year now (22nd), and I was wondering if anyone can help me with a few queries. Currently, he has two half hour walks a day and I was wondering : 1) Is he getting enough exercise? 2) I appreciate that their joints could be...
  10. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello all :) Our little girl has just started going out on walks now after completing all her jabs, which she's really enjoying! One problem is that when she realises she's on a leash, she'll go for it and just chew it like crazy. We've got her on a harness, so it's not around her neck which...

    Hey there! For those of you with electric fences, do you have it in the front and back yard or just one? If you have it in front, did your dogs think they couldn't leave their driveways for walks and things like that? We are considering putting one in soon, have been for a while but need to...

    I think I have been in denial as to how much Koda actually has anxiety issues...she has always been more submissive and timid but I just assumed that was how she was going to be. Nothing bad ever came from it and nothing has as of now either but I am not sure how to approach this with her. The...

    Hey guys, So Koda has formed this new habit of wanting to choose where to walk. For the most part we are fine with that but sometimes the way she wants to go isn't ideal in our opinion...mabye there is another dog we aren't comfortable passing or there is something else going on down the...

    I know I posted recently and it was about how Dex walked well with me but then when my spouse walked with us, it was chaos... Now he won't walk properly at all, doesn't listen to me or my spouse...he doesn't give a crap if I'm telling him to heel. I'm thinking now of getting him either a prong...

    On our walks, Dexter and I have been working on him walking next to me on the leash. He walks next to me with a little slack on the leash and when he darts forward I stop, and then I get him to stand beside me and I tell him that he's a good boy and then we walk. He's getting a lot better, I can...

    Hey there, So we are expected to get our first "real" snowfall tomorrow but they don't know how much yet. Anywhere from 3-9 inches they are saying. Broad range. We have only had inch tops at once so far this winter (very unusual). Whenever there is snow on the ground though, and we try to take...
  17. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hey all, Just wondering if anyone can give an opinion on how often and how long I should be walking Koda (4 months). I feel like she can probably go for quite a while but I don't want to push her or short change her. Any input would be fabulous! Thank you forum! :)
  18. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I have a puppy who was born April 12, 2011. She is a great puppy most of the time. I know she needs her exercise and I try to walk her a few times throughout the day. I also take her into the yard and play with her balls and other toys. She has plenty of chew toys in the house that I play with...
