Golden Retriever Information

Golden Retriever Breed

It would take a fool not to understand the universal appeal of the Golden Retriever. First off, there’s the jubilant, friendly personality that could melt even the iciest heart. Also, observe the adoring affection he gives to all those around him. Additionally, he is smart and easily trained. There’s a reason why this is a popular choice for guide and companion dogs! Last but certainly not least, the Golden Retriever features an adorable, sincere face and a glorious golden coat that sets him apart from all the other dogs.

Golden Retrievers make the ultimate family dog – they’re easy going, great with kids and other dogs, and do well with training. If you welcome this pup into your home, just remember they need lots of exercise and regular brushing.
