Overview
The Golden Retriever was developed in Britain during the 1800's. The man responsible for this illustrious breed, Lord Tweedmouth, wanted a dog that was loyal, kind, spirited, and energetic. He also wanted a dog with a love for water and the ability to retrieve. Golden Retrievers are the embodiment of beauty and brains.
Character
The Golden Retriever is a gorgeous, large, and energetic breed. They are the world's foremost family pet and companion. They are sturdy, well proportioned, and are well known for their hunting capabilities on land and in the water. The Golden is perceptive and agile.

Does your Golden Retriever bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
Temperament
Golden Retrievers are loveable, polite, and highly intelligent. They exude charm and confidence. They are sweet, eager to please, and devoted family companions. They do not do well if left alone for extended periods of time or they will become mischievous and destructive. They have a tendency to be overly exuberant and distractible. They are always gentle and patient with children. They are friendly with other pets. In fact, they are friendly with everyone. They tend to bark as a form of greeting. The Golden Retriever is not well suited for a two career family as they require an inordinate amount of human interaction and companionship.
Care
The Golden Retriever requires daily and thorough brushing with a firm bristle brush. They should be dry shampooed regularly, and bathed only when absolutely necessary with a mild shampoo. They are prone to hip dysplasia, cataracts, and skin allergies. It is important to not over feed the Golden Retriever, as they have a tendency to gain weight.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
Coat
The Golden Retriever has a double coat that is water repellent and weather resistant. The outer coat is firm, resilient, and can be wavy or straight. The tail and legs are feathered with longer hair. The under coat is dense and soft in texture. The coat color is rich, lustrous, and varies in shades of cream to gold. The Golden is a heavy shedder.
Training
The Golden Retriever is one of the easiest breeds to train. They excel in obedience and are popular therapy and service dogs. They have many talents including competitive obedience, narcotic detection, agility, and performing tricks. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Golden Retriever puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
Activity
The Golden Retriever requires daily exercise. They enjoy play sessions with their family, retrieving balls and other toys. They will do okay in an apartment dwelling provided they are sufficiently exercised. Golden Retrievers are moderately active indoors and does best with a medium to large sized securely fenced yard. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

Can a golden retriever and a black lab produce a brindle coat offspring?

1 Comment

The Golden Retriever breed can only be light gold, to golden to dark gold or red. While the Labrador can only be yellow, black, red, chocolate and blue (a lighter version of the black lab). The brindle coat coloration is not allowed in either breed, so an offspring of a Golden Retriever and a Black Labrador can not have a brindle coat.

What are the best medium to large sized dogs (such as a Golden Retriever) for apartment life, if any?

1 Comment

The main thing about owning a dog in an apartment is exercise, exercise, and more exercise. A tired dog is a good dog and a tired dog will be calm and quiet while their owner is away during the day. As per your request, here is a list of a couple breeds that would work but of course, would need daily exercise to live comfortably in an apartment. English Bulldog (30 minutes, morning/night), Cocker Spaniel (Hour, morning/night), Shetland Sheepdog (Hour, morning/night), Bull Terrier (Hour, morning/night), Shar-Pei (45 minutes, morning/night), Basset Hound (45 minutes, morning/night) though remember a hound is a hound and could be problematic with barking/howling if left alone too long. The Golden Retriever could possibly work well as long as the dog is well exercised, an hour morning/night. An adult or senior dog would do best in an apartment as they could hold themselves until you get home too. Your local shelter/rescue will have a lovely selection of dogs that need homes that could work well in an apartment depending on the breed and exercise requirements.

Can you help prevent cancer in a Golden?

Sadly, there is no way to prevent cancer in the Golden Retriever breed. Many vets now consider the breed as the Cancer Retriever compared to the Golden Retriever. However, there are steps you can take to hopefully lower the percentage of your dog getting cancer. Breeding is a big one, doing your research and making sure that the breeder has done extensive testing on their dogs. Contact your breeder's breeder even and see how their dogs all passed away. Food is another one, making sure you dog eats a high quality, grain-free dog food that is free of artificial junk that lower dog food companies add into their dog foods.

Watch what you feed Golden Retrievers. More natural is the best and avoid chemicals, by products and lots of exercise.. It does help.. But Goldens do get cancer.. Watch for sneezing a lot.. Not allergies

Are Golden Retrievers good with little children?

The Golden Retriever breed is known to be great with children, however, as every dog is different you need to socialize your new pup to children. All interactions between a child or children and a pup or dog should be supervised at all times. Children can accidentally injure or frighten a pup or dog and the pup or dog can because wary and even aggressive towards children if the dog viewed the child as a threat.

Our Golden Retriever passed away last year and we are now looking to get another Golden or Goldendoodle. Our Golden had hip problems and skin problems. But her disposition was uncanny. Which breed would be better?

A well-bred dog from a reputable, responsible and knowledgeable breeder will cut down your chances of getting a dog with hip/skin problems. However, please be aware that hip problems are prone in the Golden breed, so most dogs have problems with their hips later on in their life. I would not recommend a Golden Retriever/Poodle cross if you are looking for a well-formed temperament and knowledge as to how the dog is going to look/act/be health wise when grown up. When mixing breeds, the temperaments of each breed are mixed as well, meaning that every puppy from the litter could have a different temperament.

Some could take all the best in both breeds, some can take all the worst qualities and then some can take a mix of both. With health being a concern of your's, when mixing breeds of dogs sometimes the health can be better in the dog, sometimes worse. Same as always, the puppy could take all the best or all the worst, you never know. I would recommend finding a trustworthy Golden Retriever breeder in your area and going from there.
