Guys, I stay in Vadodara and planning to have a pedigree GSD puppy with a heavy double coat. Can anyone suggest a reliable kennel in Ahmedabad, Baroda, Surat. I have found lot many ads on olx & quickr but the snaps posted don't seem to be genuine.

Lost my 8 years old GSD, Scooby on 29th July. Totally heart-aching for me as I raised him from the time he was just 20 days old. May his soul rest in peace and he is happy and safe under the arms of God. Here is a pic of his when he was 7.

Only eight... seems very young, and a short time to spend with your lovely dog.

Very sad.

Loosing a pet is really a painful thing. To help you recover from this faster, adopting a needy pet will help in a long way. Do give it a thought, Scooby sure will be running around in God's meadows, may he rest in peace.

Hey Rajesh, that's a really sweet pic Even our angel loves getting the 'Tika', and even steals the sweets.

PS: Why cage such a nice lab? He is quite young and can be easily trained, and judging by the way he is letting your neice tie the 'rakhi', he doesn't seem like a threat as well. Just my personal view but caging a lab seems a bit cruel to me, irrespective of how comfy the cage is.

I can understand. Hope your sister's relatives fall for the charm of handsome Terry and realise that he is just a bundle of love.

Hi Rajesh,

Caging a Retriever at this age (1 year) will make him very restless and extremely aggressive as they have a lot of energy. Cages are fine for crate training only till the age of 6 months! After that it is not a good idea to keep them caged. You can leash them and maybe give them a chewy bone to keep them quiet.
Labs and retrievers are extremely affectionate and friendly if kept free and trusted. If caged in youth, they can become quite angry and restless.

Regards,
Behemoth

+1 my lab is not even leashed. Left free at his will and wish. We did not give him any special training as well. He is self trained and behaves better than we humans

Sorry but I hate that logic and whatever drift you are hinting at. If a member of the family didn't want a pet to the extent that the pet that too a big playful breed like a golden retriever has to be caged, then why bring it home at all? Its plain cruel if you ask me even if it means that he stays caged for only a few hours.

Rajesh, if he is a year old, he is likely to do done exuberant jumping that can be difficult to deal with for kids/ elders. From my experience tiring him out (long walks/games like fetch) will sort that out. If it is a joint family they can take turns entertaining him or adopt another dog cos then they entertain each other and are easier to take care of than a single dog...

Well he had a wound which got transformed into some cancerous cells, got very weak and eventually left us. We tried all medications but all in vain. Hope he is free of all pain now.

Retrievers are such cheerful dogs ! I would suggest to let him be free. Is it possible that family members who dont like pets, be neutral with him ? Hopefully, over a period of time the pup will know who to go to and who not to. Though I havent seen this selective socializing by a Retriever.

Nandita ma'am, Scooby seems to be a joyful buddy in the pic. I have loved dogs since the age of 12 as prior to that I was bit scared of them. If a dog was at 400 meters from me then I would be 4 ft away.

I really feel sad for these poor souls to leave us so soon. I am sure he will be at peace now and if you plan to have new pet then go for a Lab or Golden Retriever as I feel they are best and really really cute and fun loving.

A pug will be a good option too. Very easy to maintain!

Keep a smile and go ahead with the new one.

Thanks

Akash
