The Golden Retriever

 

The Golden Retriever is a friendly, loving dog, devoted to its human family.

Intelligent and easy to train, the Golden’s kindly disposition means that it will mix in with other household pets. The Golden Retriever’s aim is to please use, and to add sunshine to your family’s life.

Golden Retrievers was originally bred as a working gundog, retrieving game over land and water. The Golden Retriever is still widely use in the field. The Golden Retriever breed has also made its mark in Competitive Obedience and is a keen competitor in Agility.

The wonderful combination of intelligence and gentleness also makes the Golden Retriever a first-class assistance dog, and they are widely used as guide dogs for the blind, hearing dogs for the deaf, dogs for the disabled, and as therapy dogs.

An added bonus is the Golden Retriever breed’s tremendous sense of smell, and many do important work as ‘sniffer dogs’, detecting drugs, arms and explosives.

 

Easy to care of a Golden Retriever

Golden Retrievers are easy to look after, as long as you keep to a regular routine of brushing and combing, particularly in wet and muddy conditions.

A strongly-built dog, the Golden Retriever requires a balanced diet of good-quality food, but they are not fussy feeders.
