Golden Retriever Puppy Playtime


It’s not all work at Smiling Dog. When our pups aren’t pursuing their Puppy PhD, they like to have some fun with their favorite toys. These are two of our newest golden retriever puppies. They arrived on the coldest day of the year and a day or so later, we got a blizzard. They’ve had lots of snow fun, but they need to spend time indoors where it’s warm, too. Right now they are just starting to get used to a potty schedule and shared crate time. They have already aced the cute test!



If you like the toys in the video (we love ’em because they are washable and durable), visit Use code: smilingdog to get 20% your full order. It’s a tail-wagging benefit of being a Smiling Dog follower!
