One reason this is such a serious concern for us, is that most people are either unaware of the damage this poses to healthy development of puppies' motor skills, structure, and confidence; or they don't give the threat enough weight when making decisions about buying a puppy and/or providing it with a healthy environment.
Plainly stated: puppies that are confined to living on slippery surfaces like marble, varnished hard-wood floors, or tiles with a gloss/slick surface during the period when their muscles, ligaments and skeletons are developing, have a high likelihood of experiencing some form of developmental deformity and/or a low sense of confidence, as a result of that deformity.
If your home has slippery floors, please take a moment to educate yourself of the risks they pose to your dog or puppy's health, and of the things you can do to mitigate those risks.
We have had a least one customer shave one of the puppies they bought from us, and it broke our hearts! As a general rule, you should never shave a Golden Retriever.
Shaving your dog’s undercoat does much more harm than good it will take away their natural protection from the elements. The only time your Golden Retriever’s coat should be shaved is for medical reasons or excessive matting.
If you want a Golden Retriever with short hair, buy a Labrador Retriever! Then you can have three color choices:
Yellow, Black or Chocolate.
Fleas & Ticks are a VERY serious problem in Thailand. And you must maintain a regimen to eradicate your puppy of fleas, ticks and the dangerous worms and diseases transmitted by them. There is plenty of information on the internet, so please do your research, ask your Vet, and then make an informed decision on how to protect your puppy from these K9 killers! We use NexGard, but this product is not without potential side effects. You've got to do your own research and come to your own conclusion
Golden Retrievers are working dogs and they cannot be physically or mentally healthy if they do not get plenty of exercise.
And that doesn't mean a 30 minute walk (or even a run) at a human's pace/speed. Note: all our Golden retrievers can all run at speeds exceeding 45km/hr. They need opportunities to run at their pace. Playing fetch with them is the easiest way to do this.
Please don't "love" our puppies to death!
You've got to keep them on a strict diet so they do not become overweight. Please do not overfeed them! The breed standard for males is 29.5-34 kg. (65-75 pounds). For Females, it's 25-29.5 kg.
It's a fact that many of our customers are expats that may one day return to their home countries. We worry about what will happen to the puppies when they return to their home countries.
Relocating a dog to another country is an expensive venture, and we recommend anyone buying a puppy or a dog to be prepared for the expense and the inconvenience. It is our hope that our puppies will become part of your families, and that you would no sooner leave them behind than you would one of your own children.
But we know that even the best plans sometimes come to naught, and in the event one of our customers is unable to take their dog home with them, we beg them to return the puppy/dog to us so we can help it find a suitable new home.
Imagine that you are a puppy that has just been taken away from its mother, its littermates, its social and emotional source of security for the first time. You are already afraid. Then you are placed in a small crate, which is then placed into a crowded, hot, dark room, with very poor air circulation. It's hard to breathe. You begin to pant profusely!
Then, the cage you are in begins to shake violently, and you are inundated with a plethora of loud sounds and strange smells that you have never experienced before.
Then your eardrums begin to experience changes in air pressure that cause human babies to scream, even when they are in the safety of their mothers' bossom.
Then it gets very cold , and then very hot again. You bark an howl, hoping your mother will rescue you. You bite and claw at the metal gate, desperate to get out... starting to get the picture?
You will probably live through it, but it really feels like you are going to die a terrible, painful death. You have been emotionally and mentally scarred. Thus begins your new life as a pet.
It's not what we want for the puppies we have so lovingly raised!
Putting puppies into cargo holds is not just stressful, its outright dangerous!
How would you like to pick up your new puppy at the airport and discover the interior of her crate covered in blood, feces, and vomit.? Dangerous enough for you?
Believe it or not, there are "professionals" in Thailand's pet industry that will tell you it is safer and more comfortable for a puppy to take a short flight in an air cargo hold, then to endure a long ride in a car.
BULLSHIT! Run from any breeder or agent that tells you that.
Puppies should not be treated like baggage!
This Thai/Chinese actress' puppy was killed by an airline less than a year ago.
Can you imagine your beloved pet arrived dead in a bloody, urine-soaked crate at the end of its flight?
Hopefully, it won't take the fear of your puppy dying, to convince you not to put it into an air cargo hold.! Hopefully, you'll love your new puppy enough to want him/her to have a positive experience just before you meet him or her. We do!
Puppies raised on slippery floors have a 60% greater chance of developing hip dysplasia. While genetics obviously play a big part in this area, environment has its role as well. We are doing all we can on our end to make sure your puppies' parents have genetically healthy hips.
Providing them with a suitable environment to grow and develop safely is up to you! Once your puppy's hips, muscles, ligaments have completely developed (in a good environment with proper traction) then slippery floors are LESS dangerous for him/her.
But even then, they can still cause damage. Think about this video for a second. Fortunately, this dog was smart enough NOT to hurt himself again. He knows from experience how dangerous slippery floors are to him.
While some people enjoy watching videos like this for fun, these puppies have already sustained serious damage to their bodies.
On a positive note, if you recognise the irregular behaviour soon enough, and if you catch the damage before long term deformities set in, there are inexpensive home remedies. And plenty of success stories . The trick is to act as soon as you notice a problem.
The bottom line, is that Golden Retrievers are working dogs, and they are genetically designed to live, work and play on outdoor surfaces with good traction like dirt, sand, mud, forest floors etc. If they can't get traction, they can't develop naturally!
While your puppy's body is developing, make sure you keep it in a place where it can get good traction,
