    Should I be feeding my dog more?

    Asked: Should I be feeding my dog more?

    I have an 8 month old male golden retriever. He is 80 lbs and still growing. Currently, I'm feeding him 1 cup of food twice a day (once in the morning and once at night). But, every feeding time he finishes all his food then waits for my little dogs to finish and goes and eats their leftovers. Does this mean he's still hungry and I should feed him more, or does he just not know to stop when full? Also, he doesn't appear to be obese, he still has an indentation near the hips and you can slightly feel the ribs like my vet recommended.

    Is a 600 square foot yard, enough for a German Shepherd and a Golden Retriever to play around in?

    Asked: Is a 600 square foot yard, enough for a German Shepherd and a Golden Retriever to play around in?

    It has grass, and I was also wondering if I could leave the dogs alone in a Cage [which is the size of 2 bedrooms] for about 4 hours a day? If no, where do I leave them?

    How often should a Golden Retriever be bathed?

    Asked: How often should a Golden Retriever be bathed?

    Our dog usually doesn't smell too bad, and so I haven't bathed him in I think months. However, his fur seemed to start smelling a little so I'm going to bathe him tomorrow.
    How often SHOULD I be bathing him? Like once a month, once every couple weeks, once every couple months, or as needed? I heard frequent bathing isn't really good, is that true?

    My dog always bites me when I try to groom her- 10 points!?

    Asked: My dog always bites me when I try to groom her- 10 points!?

    I have an 11 month old Golden Retriever puppy (well… not really a puppy xD). Whenever I groom her, she always reaches over to try to bite me, but not in a violent way. When she does get a hold of my hand, she'll just hold it for a few seconds and release. Then she'll try to reach and bite it again. How can I stop this behavior?
    Thanks!

    Ideas for a Kennel Club name for dog agility?

    Asked: Ideas for a Kennel Club name for dog agility?

    I've been doing agility with my dog, and want to get him Kennel Club activity registered so that further down the line we can compete.However, this means coming up with an original name, which is proving extremely difficult…especially as I will need a couple of different options!!Anyone have any ideas please?

    He is a crossbreed, Labrador x Golden Retriever (black), called Ozzy, so I was thinking of something relating to the Goldie in him…a name incorporating either Black Gold or Golden Boy are my current choices, however it will need to be longer as I very much doubt those will be available on their own.

    Any suggestions much appreciated, I'm sure others will have more imagination than I do!!

    Pros and cons of having a doggie door?

    Asked: Pros and cons of having a doggie door?

    We are moving to a different city in January and we will be renting a duplex.We have a small dog and I was reading in our lease that we have the option to have maintenance come in and install a doggie door for us if we want one (they just have you pay $100 in order to install it and it can be done at any time).I was wondering what all the pros and cons of having a doggie door would be, and whether or not we should seriously consider getting one.I do know that rattlesnakes are very common where we will be moving to and my husband is concerned about what type of door it is and whether or not it will keep creatures from being able to gain access to our house from the inside.It would be nice to have so the dog can go out to the back yard whenever she would like to get out and run around or go to the bathroom.Also, if it makes a difference, we have a 3 and a 2 year old.I'd just like to get some honest opinions about whether or not a doggie door would be worth having.No matter what I don't think we plan to make a decision right away so we will settle in for a couple of months first before deciding whether or not we want one installed.Thanks for the advice and tips!=)
