Just 2 nights ago I saw an ad on craigslist for a free, 10 month old Golden Retriever and I ended up adopting Sunnie! He is the most wonderful pup ever! Of course I have never had a Golden before, or any other pure bred...anything. Sunnie seems perfectly healthy other than a red rash on his tummy. Poor boy had been itching like crazy too. I am changing his food from Rachel Ray to Iams Sensitive Naturals Salmon flavor. Thinking it will help his skin/coat. Also I gave him a bath. I bathed him first in Dawn Dish soap, then in flea&tick shampoo (The green stuff he came with), and finally with Oatmeal&Aloe wash to calm and sooth his skin. I combed and brushed him dry and found about `15 fleas (dead) and picked them all off. We have a vet check next week. What else can I do for Sunnie? Is there a better food for him? What flea/tick treatments/ replants do you use? What about ways to sooth his skin? We have a 5.5 month old baby girl too so I have to be careful of pesticides and chemicals. Are there any real training tips just for Goldens? He is very very smart and in just 2 days he has learned SIT/GO LAY DOWN and GO INSIDE. He is a dream to walk on a leash or ride a bike with! He is making great progress with "Stay" "EASY (for slow down or calm down)"
