Golden Retrievers are one of my most-loved dog breeds. They are instantly recognizable by their beautiful golden-brown coat, balanced proportions and outgoing smile. A typical Golden Retriever's broad head has a wide but tapered muzzle, a brown nose, gentle brown eyes and medium-sized pendant (hanging) ears. They are an excellent breed, and they can provide you with the companion you have been looking for. They can participate in several activities with you as well, such as hiking, camping, and walking. They are also one of the most gentle and intelligent dogs you could own. They make wonderful pets and are good with children of all ages.
Golden retrievers are usually slow to mature mentally and often remain as playful as puppies throughout their lifetimes. During their first two years, they present many challenges for their owners. They are both beautiful and lovable dogs to own, who wouldn't want a dog that acts “puppylike" for a longer period of time? Whether you get your Golden as a puppy or as an adult, more than likely you are going to have to do a bit of training.
Golden Retrievers are friendly with other dogs and other people. They do not make good guard dogs, as they rarely, if ever, attack. They are active, loving, and they make an outstanding family dog. They enjoy pleasing their masters, they are friendly with everyone, and I do mean everyone. They love to be included in family activities, which includes take rides in the car and traveling. They love attention, and love for you to treat them just like they are a member of your family.
