We get big enough to follow adults on their walk!!



At Bydandacres we are very concerned about nutrition for our Goldens and Golden puppies.  There are many foods available and it can be confusing making the 'right' choice.  Please take time to discuss proper nutrition with Patti.  We have tried many different brands of dog food and may be able to supply some answers. Presently our adults are eating Kirkland Adult




Patti is interested in all natural foods and would be happy to discuss natural feeding programs. We have experimented with some parts of the raw food diets and have had excellent results.


A raw dog food diet typically consists of:

  • Muscle meat, often still on the bone
  • Bones, either whole or ground
  • Organ meats such as livers and kidneys
  • Raw eggs
  • Vegetables like broccoli, spinach, and celery
  • Apples or other fruit
  • Some dairy, such as yogurt



Puppies are introduced to puppy food at three weeks of age.  By five to six weeks, they are almost exclusively eating puppy chow.  We recommend feeding only dry food. At the present time our puppies are started on Kirkland Puppy




And Finally!!!!

All Bydandacres Goldens are fed 'free choice'.  We monitor weight gain but, over the years, we have found that, if  Goldens are raised on 'free choice' food from the earliest days, they self regulate their food intake.  If they know and trust that food will always be there, there is no need to "gobble" their food at a mealtime.  Feed FREE CHOICE!!!!!





Helping at the sawmill is good fun!!
