  1. Winter white Goldens

    Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Can I get a reference check on winter white goldens? Has anyone used them or had experience with them? Couldn’t find them on a thread previously, thanks!!
  2. Dog training/long walks gloves

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Checking to see if anyone has any recommendations on gloves! I live in Chicago and I have tons of gloves, but either they are too thin and my hands freeze (especially trying to get to my treats) or they are HUGE and I can barely rip a poop bag. Does anyone have any good recommendations for...
  3. Keeping warm in winter?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi there, Thinking of buying a goldie pup soon, however s/he will be staying outside for up to 9 hours a day, and I'm concerned about how to keep him/her warm in winter. Our winters get down to around 5 degrees C at worst, but it never snows, and the day can get up to 20 degrees and very sunny...
  4. Heavy shedding during the winter??

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Hi everyone, So this is my first winter with our 3 years old golden, Henry. We lived in San Diego before then so shedding was pretty steady and pretty much non-existent honestly. However, now we are in New York, so the weather is drastically different and he has been shedding buckets! It is...

    He got a little muddy playing with his little brother, thank goodness for this coat to keep his relatively dry and clean. This is the before chaos.
  6. Winter swimmer... ?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Perhaps a silly question! Our last golden LOVED the water and swimming together became a huge part of our lives together-- up until the very week she passed away last spring. We are extremely excited to be welcoming the next generation of golden into our family-- but this is our first time...
  7. Winter Weather

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi everyone! Roomba is now 5.5 months old and doing awesome. The nipping/land-shark fits have stopped, she's 100% house trained, she knows her commands, she's super friendly and loving, and she's doesn't bark (this could be both good and bad!). Now, here's my question: we live in Chicago and...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi, I see clear liquid dripping from Piper's nose. Why? Its not that cold out. Could she have a doggie cold? Thanks! :)
  9. How cold is too cold for walks?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    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...
  10. Moving from Summer to Winter with my Retriever

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hi Everyone! Me and my golden retriever are moving from Brazil (middle of summer) to London (deep winter!). He's 3 and a half years old, and born in bred in a tropical city where the average daily temperature is above 30C. As much as stays inside the air-conditioned house during the day, he is...
  11. Bathing Your Golden

    Golden Retriever Grooming
    I wanted to know what everybody else does in the winter time with their Goldens. Also, do you bathe your dogs inside or outside? (I wash mine outside) Is it difficult to wash them in a bath tub? My male dog has arthritis, and bathing him in cold water has been getting more irritating for him...
  12. Winter activities for your golden?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Howdy, What do you do with your golden on rainy days out to burn off some energy? Does anyone know of any indoor dog park type facilities?
  13. Snow and Paws

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I know it is summer, but I was at the local sporting goods store and found an interest in trying cross country skiing this coming winter. However, before I purchase the gear, I am wondering if my golden retriever will be okay with me on my excursions. I live where we can get a good amount of...
  14. How's your puppy's coat during winter?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I dunno if it's the cold winter here in northern California, the dog food (Fromm), her growing up, or the shampoo (Earth Bath) but lately my baby's coat seems dryer. It's not as soft. Also, she sometimes gets static electricty/cling. Wondering if this is normal and anyway to help it?
  15. Dog umbrella

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Winter is coming, has anyone used a dog umbrella before? Does it look silly? It kind of makes sense to me...leash + umbrella in one!

  17. My dog during the blizzard

    Golden Retriever Videos
    Every morning when I get up I take my dog out to the back so he can do his morning business. I had to take him out last Tuesday during the blizzard. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be out there. He has played in the snow before and he loves it. Every time I take him out he acts like it's...
