Facts - Overview

The Golden Retriever dog breed are the sweetest and most relaxed companion you can ever have. They might not be the most fashionable or cutest dogs in the world, but they are the most loyal and most devoted. Despite their good nature, it is still important that you train them and let them socialize with others.

Give them ample enough of exercise everyday — 20 to 30 minutes during mornings can suffice. Golden Retrievers love to use their mouths. You can take advantage of this by training them to carry things for you.

Golden Retrievers appear like simple dogs. Some have straight coats while some have flowing curls. But what sets them apart from other retrievers is their golden mane. They come in dark light gold in color. And for the past few years, breeders have started to sell the Golden Retrievers that have white-golden coats, which they deemed rare.

Even though their coats are not that special, Golden Retrievers will require frequent grooming to prevent tangles. Brushing their coats once a week is enough, but brushing them daily is highly recommended. Also, prepare yourself for some heavy shedding. Golden Retrievers shed a lot during fall and spring. When it comes to bathing, you can give him once a month or once every two weeks.

Golden Retrievers are resilient dogs. However, it does not mean that they are immune to diseases and certain health conditions. We work with breeders that can guarantee each puppy a clean bill of health by including all the necessary paperwork and health clearance certificates. Health clearances will give you peace of mind that the pup is tested and cleared for any possible health issues.

In addition, it is essential that you research about the most common health problems that Golden Retriever dog breeds may acquire. Our reliable Golden Retriever dog breed info pages will be able to help you with that. 


Facts - Personality

Golden Retrievers are calm and sweet. These two traits describe them perfectly. Originally bred to become work and sport dogs, they have found their way to the hearts of many as a loveable companions.

Golden Retriever Temperament

Aside from being adorable, Golden Retrievers are intelligent. You can train them to perform tricks and even simple household chores. Of course, there is no doubt that you can train a Golden Retriever to join and win dog competitions. In combination with their intelligence, the Golden Retriever’s tendency to please people makes it easier to train them.

Golden Retriever Personality

When it comes to other pets and children, Golden Retrievers are naturally friendly. They can be even be friendly towards strangers and other dogs that are not living with them. However, even though it is natural for them to be harmless towards your kids and pets, you still need to train them properly.

It is common that you will find Golden Retrievers resting anywhere they find comfortable. But do not be fooled. They are not as lazy and laidback as they seem. Once you excite them, you will be surprised on how much they will become active and playful.

In some cases, this tendency can make them uncontrollably happy — and that tendency is not good news for those people who have valuables lying around their houses. It is essential that Golden Retriever owners expend their dogs’ energy by letting them exercise frequently. Walking, jogging, and swimming will do wonders on their mental and physical health.


Facts - Care

Golden Retrievers are energetic and playful. If you live in an apartment with limited space, it might be best to spend time outdoors with your dog more often. They love playing and they will grow as good dogs if they are given enough exercise and attentive Golden Retriever puppy care.

Their active lifestyle make Golden Retrievers ideal companions for physically active people. You can take them with you on your jogs, hikes, and even your day-to-day trip to the grocery store. They are always willing to go with you. And just exposing them to wide open spaces will definitely make them happy.

To apply good Golden Retriever care to your pup, make sure that you give him enough time to be active. Normally, 20 to 30 minutes of physical activity every day is enough to keep any possible health complications at bay.

You do not need to buy some special toys to satisfy your pup’s longing for some fun. A regular ball should be enough. You can even use your old sock and shape it like a ball. Throw it in his direction and watch him catch it with joy. Though, be reminded that you might need to train him a bit if you want him to give the ball back to you.

Golden Retrievers experience growth spurts when he reaches four months old until he becomes seven months old. During this phase, they can become prone to injuries since they will need to get accustomed to the changes of their bodies.


Facts - Grooming

Golden Retrievers are moderate to heavy shedders especially during spring and fall. You should expect that your house would be filled with dog hair during those times. This is normal for the breed. On the other hand, regular grooming will significantly reduce the amount of hair he leaves around.

How to Groom Golden Retrievers

Keep in mind that you must let him get used to grooming in the first place. While he is a puppy, you should get him used to getting his coat brushed and his body examined. Letting a Golden Ret not accustomed to those, may make him touchy or sensitive to brushing and body examination when he gets older. This can be a problem during vet exams and might scare you off if you try to brush or examine him yourself.

Golden Retrievers have thick coats. To keep his hair tangle-free, you need to brush your pup’s coat at least once a week. You should give your Golden Retriever a bath once or twice a month or immediately when he becomes dirty.

Aside from giving him a bath, you should also brush your pup’s teeth. Brushing your pup’s teeth twice or thrice a week should be enough to avoid any tartar buildup or bacterial infection. However, it is ideal to brush his teeth every day to keep his breath fresh and clean.

Nail care should be done once or twice a month. A way to tell if his nails need trimming is the clicking sound he makes when he walks around. Letting his nails grow long can cause discomfort or in severe cases, injury to his paws. Long nails also become a breeding ground for bacteria which can cause infection.

Golden Retriever Grooming When It Comes to nails

Keep in mind, trimming your dog’s nails is different from trimming your own nails. Inside a dog’s nail are blood vessels. If you trim his nails too short, his nails will bleed and cause him pain. Try to learn some tips from your vet first before you attempt to do his nails by yourself. Also, only use dog nail clippers when doing this. Never substitute with anything else. 


Facts - Health

Golden Retrievers have naturally strong constitution. If you give your pup enough physical and mental exercises, regular vet visits, and healthy food, he will be healthy. However, just like all other purebreds, some health conditions may affect them easily, especially if the Golden Retrievers’ nutrition is being neglected .

But before you worry about your future Golden Retriever’s health, you must first be aware that it is important that the puppy that you will adopt has sufficient health clearances. Health clearances will let you know that the pup is free or is cleared of any health issues.

Of course, any health clearances will do. But if you want to make sure that your pup is 100% healthy when you get him, try to check if he can be cleared by the following: Canine Eye Registry Foundation, Auburn University, and Orthopedic Foundation for Animals.

Also, be wary of skin allergies since Golden Retrievers tend to contract them easily. Make sure that you check his coat and skin by brushing him frequently. In addition, make sure that you do not overfeed your Golden Retrievers because they can get fat fast. Hip dysplasia is common with dogs especially Retrievers and it can be acquired by simply being overweight.

When you take your puppy home, make sure that you take him to his veterinarian for additional health checks. You can never be too sure. 


Facts - History

Before, people thought that Golden Retrievers were bred from Russian sheepdogs. However, they were actually bred in Scotland by Lord Tweedmouth who is also known as Sir Dudley Majoribanks.

History of Golden Retriever

Lord Tweedmouth planned to have a perfect retriever — a retriever that is highly intelligent and is loyal. He then picked out a yellow Wavy Coated Retriever and a Tweed Water Spaniel. He received a fine bunch of litters from the two. The wavy coated retriever gave the Golden Ret its golden coat and the Tweed Water Spaniel gave the Golden Ret its talent for hunting and its calm and loyal demeanor.

Afterwards, he bred the dogs to Wavy and Flat Coated Retrievers, Red Setter, and Tweed Water Spaniel. He only kept yellow dogs and gave the other dogs with different colors to his relatives and friends.

Since Lord Tweedmouth was an avid waterfowl hunter, he would usually bring his new breed of dogs while hunting. The dogs piqued the interest of the other hunters. Then after some time, kennel clubs became interested with the breed and considered it as a distinct breed in the early 1900s.

A few years later, Golden Retrievers caught the attention of pet loving families. Then the Golden Retriever’s history of becoming a popular household pet started from there. Golden Retrievers became one of the most popular dog breeds in the world, especially in the United States since. The breed usually ranks first, second, or third in popularity polls.
