A Few Tidbits About Golden Retrievers, The Ultimate Family Dog

 


Visitors: 162

I love Golden retrievers, and would like to share a few interesting facts with you about this interesting dog species:

Golden Retrievers are a relatively new breed, only dating as far back as the 19th century. They were developed in England and Scotland due to the popularity of the retriever dogs that were already used for hunting purposes. They enjoy pleasing their masters, so obedience training can be fun. As long as you have the commitment, it isn't too hard to do.

Golden Retriever puppies of inferior quality are usually produced by breeders who are only after making money. So as much as possible, avoid buying from this type of breeders, otherwise you will more likely end up owning a puppy that is poor in all aspects, be it in terms of health, temperament or even breed.

They are very attached to their owners. Leaving them alone in a room can cause the dog to become very sad and distressed.

Golden Retrievers are unlikely to attack, but they make good watch dogs, because they bark loudly when a stranger approaches. They are particularly valued for their high level of sociability towards people, calmness, and willingness to learn. Golden Retriever puppies are one of the most popular dog breeds, and rightly so. Today is dedicated to this awesome breed of dog.

They do suffer obesity because they eat and eat and eat and eat, so you must watch how much you feed him. These dogs do have a tendency to chew, and therefore should be provided with appropriate toys so that your own belongings and furnishings don't suffer.

I hope you learned a few things today, that you may not have already known.
