Golden Retriever

Golden Retriever

The name of the Golden Retriever dates from the First World War, when it was bred to retrieve waterfowl on hunting expeditions.

Retrievers were first brought to the United States in 1924 andiloved for decades in Europe and Canada.

This breed is now one of the most popular dog breeds in North American and Europe.

This dog is the most popular breed in Australia as well, and has spread to Latin American, the Middle East and Africa.

The Golden Retriever has a broad head with a broad and breasts and a deep muzzle which is not pointed. The jaws are powerful. Their coats are myriad of golden hairs on the skull and through the lips.

The colour of the coat varies from light to dark and is either wavy or straight, as well as salt and pepper or black & tan, and all shades of shades of brown. The name comes from the dog's propensity for seeking and fetching objects with its golden hair, which it wags in play.

This breed is known for its amiable nature, friendliness and charm. They are very happy and are relatively easy to train. Additionally, they are high-energy dogs that are keen for anything new to catch their attention. They are not timid or shy, but prefer the company of people or objects that are of interest to them. 

The Golden Retriever breed is above all a companion dog. It enjoys being around people and is able to relate well to children and other animals. Like many other breeds, the Golden Retriever has a tendency to gain weight and can obesity if overfed.

It is recommended that dogs are fed twice daily, once in the morning and once in the evening, with food kept to a minimum. Water should always be available for this dog.

Golden Retrievers can be prone to certain health problems, as all breeds do, and hip dysplasia is a serious problem for this breed.

The Golden Retriever breed has stood the test of time with the strong character and deep devotion to its owner that is still remembered today. This breed makes a great companion, a great family pet and a great worker. Needing nothing more than to be loved and cared for, this breed will return the favor with a lifetime of loyalty and love.
