Mine had fleas at that age too (do we have the same exact dog? :) ). I realized it because I had given her a treat (a Bil Jac liver treat) and thought she had some on her face. I laughed at her for...

I have a golden, too, and was worried that she was getting too dominant (and, like you, I got a golden for their famous easy-going temperament). I was very discourged at first, but my little Abby is...

Thanks, that's just what I needed to hear. On Saturday, I eventually put Abby in her crate after it became clear my guest wasn't going to listen to me. I'll have to be more firm in the future.

Abby update

I posted a while ago about Abby snapping/growling if I corrected her. In the last two weeks, she's been much, much better. Very obedient. She's still on leash most of the time, I'm slowly letting her...

She seems to be doing well. At first she REALLY didn't want me to put the drops in her ears, but now if I talk to her softly and reassure her, she'll let me put them in without even having to hold...

I agree. When my golden was spayed, the situation was much like the one described here. They sent her home with no collar a few hours after surgery (after originally telling me they were keeping her...

I think we're on the right track. We've been really consistent with laying down the law lately (my boyfriend has been a huge help) and I'm going to see to it that she doesn't forget who's boss. She's...

Update on Abby

It's been almost a week, and Abby has yet to sass, bark, or growl at me. She's responding much better to commands and seems recognize my authority more. I still think I need to work with her, but...

My sister is slightly allergic to her golden and would never dream of giving her up. She suffers with a smile, I guess (I don't blame her, Zoe is an angel -- I've never met such a sweet, gentle...

Yucky ear

On Saturday I was doing some basic grooming stuff with Abby (a 5-month-old golden retriever) -- brushing her, cleaning her ears, brushing her teeth. I did one ear, and she didn't object at all. That...

I think it could be, for Abby at least, because just the fact that I put her on the leash seems to let her know, "I mean business and you'd better listen to me." In the past day or so, I haven't had...

Ugh. I'm confused. I'm getting some people say yes, do the alpha roll, some say don't. Some say it's normal, some say it's not. I'm worried that I'll choose to start using one method of correction,...

It depends. I can come home for lunch, so she's caged from about 9 a.m. to noon, out for an hour/hour and a half, then caged until 5ish. On Mondays I sometimes work late, but I come home for a few...

My adorable golden retriever pup, Abby (she's almost 5 months old) has been getting very sassy with me. Most of the time if I give her a command, she does it, but sometimes, especially if I give her...
