Loving A Golden Retriever

By Carol Matthews

Many families consider getting a Golden Retriever for a family pet. This is understandable, considering the affable personality of the Golden Retriever. Golden retrievers are very people-friendly and great with children, which makes for a terrific family pet. The Golden Retriever was specifically bred for the qualities it has ? agility, hunting skill, confident, love of people, eager to please, loyal, strong sense of smell and tracking ability. It is a mix of various sporting breeds, along with some bloodhound to sharpen its sense of smell.

Though the breed was first begun in the 1800's, it was officially recognized as a breed in Great Britain in 1913, after an exciting history. Sir Dudley Majoribanks, who was from Scotland, created the mix from a variety of sporting breeds and adding in some bloodhound to increase its sense of smell.

The breed was officially recognized in Great Britain in 1913. It is now one of the most popular breeds of dog around the world. Families enjoy their good qualities, and they are also used in many other ways because of their tracking ability and great sense of smell.

Golden Retrievers are best if they have a mid-gold coloring and haven't got any white patches on their fur. They love to be around people. In fact, in order to be happy and not get into mischief, Golden Retrievers need a lot of exercise and human attention.

They do have a lot of energy, but that energy must be guided, as Golden Retrievers will get into mischief if they are left alone for too long or if they don't get enough exercise. If they are trained while young, however, they can be taught to be gentle with people and to signal the approach of a stranger. They also love to swim and can be taught to do many tricks to please their humans.

Golden Retrievers make great pets. If you are going to have a Golden Retriever for a pet, you need to remember a few things. First, have your puppy obedience trained, so that it learns good behaviors instead of having to try to get rid of the bad habits later.

Those who have Golden Retrievers need to keep in mind that their pet needs several things in order to be a happy pet. They need to remember their dog needs obedience training, plenty of exercise, and loving attention from their owner. The obedience training helps their pet behave. It is easier for the pup to learn good behavior right from the start than to try to unlearn bad habits, like jumping on furniture or barking at everything it sees.

The dog will also need attention from its humans, as it is a highly social animal and is eager to please. Be sure your dog knows you love it, and give it plenty of positive attention when it does behavior you like.
