How to Stop Puppy Biting

A few people have commented that while they love their puppy, they don’t love it when their puppy bites them. Here is a great training video from Cesar, training the owner how to respond to puppy biting.

April’s Dark Red Goldens Are Doing Great!

Is it possible to post too many puppy pictures? Is it possible to decide which litter or even which puppy is the cutest? I’ll let you determine that – but we couldn’t post pictures of both Daisy and Spice’s pups without including an update on April’s fine litter!

April and Grant’s puppies are now three weeks old, beautiful dark red little canines just the right size for little hands to hold! Our little children love how nicely these pups fit into chubby hands and little laps, and how they aren’t quite as active as their older counterparts, making them perfect for sweet snuggles! With milky blue eyes open to the beautiful world around them and little legs growing stronger with each day, these little boys and girls are enjoying more and more forays in the spring sunshine!

 

 

 

 

 

Puppy Pictures of Spice’s Lovely Litter

After sharing some cute photos of Daisy and Teddy’s puppies, we also wanted to pop on with some pictures of Spice and Buddy’s equally adorable litter.

At four weeks old, these little pups are enjoying more adventures in life, including eating food, wrestling and tumbling over one another, and playing outdoors whenever the weather is nice enough.  And in spite of being a bit younger than Daisy’s pups, they are just as eager to keep up outside, trotting through the grass on chubby little legs, galloping after the children in games of chase, and sensibly seeking comfortable arms or a shady green retreat when these antics tire them out!

 

 

 

Daisy’s Darling Six Week Old Puppies

It seems as if we were just posting the news that Daisy and Teddy’s litter of American Golden/English Cream puppies had arrived! Now, they are already six weeks old, and have a wealth of enthusiasm, vigor, and zest for life! It won’t be long before they are bringing joy, love, and endless cuteness to their new family’s homes! In the meantime, we are thoroughly enjoying their adorable faces, sweet snuggles, and playful puppy romps each day during playtime. Next week will bring an additional adventure with the puppies’ vet examinations!

I happen to think this litter quite adorable – but in in case you want to check it out yourself and catch a case of puppy cuteness overload, take a peek at all those beautiful pups below!

 

 

 

 

April and Grant’s Large, Beautiful Litter of Dark Red Golden Pups!

Look at all those little Golden Retrievers! They are our newest litter of puppies here in Maine at Windy Knoll Goldens!

April Golden Retriever Puppy

April and Grant’s pretty dark red pups arrived on April 6, 2021 – a very large litter of 12 healthy canines, 3 boys and 9 girls!

With sturdy, dark red April as their enthusiastic mother, and handsome, dark red Grant as their father, these pups promise to mature into beautiful, dark red adults with a lot of zest and loyalty for life! At the moment, however, they’re busy just being sweet and taking the responsibility of growing bigger and cuter each day quite seriously. Their beautiful blue eyes are open to the world, although their means of locomotion is still adorably rolly-polly and slow as they tumble about on legs that are still a bit wobbly! With so many littermates, there’s always someone to snuggle with, and if there’s not a pup to snuggle with, there is sure to be one of the children ready to take over the job! Each day also finds them undergoing the bio sensor therapy that is an important part of every puppy’s foundation here at Windy Knoll Goldens.

 

 

It’s a lot of work being a puppy … all that eating, sleeping, and snuggling just wears me out! Good night….

Spice & Buddy’s Litter Announcement

Spring is slowly arriving here in our neck of the woods in central Maine, and with the warming temperatures, greening grass, and promise of foliage and flowers on the way, it seems like an especially perfect time to welcome new life here at Windy Knoll Goldens – a brand new litter of lovely puppies!

Spice and Buddy’s healthy litter arrived on April 1, 2021, with three adorable boys and three equally cute girls, all robust, large, and chubby pups!

Under the loving nurture of their mother, Spice, and all the caring hands around here, this litter is thriving and growing, toddling about on little legs with cute little squeaks and growls, and have even enjoyed some sunshine on particularly warm days!  Spice and Buddy's Puppy
