Understand the Breed
According to AKC registration statistics, the Golden Retriever is one of the most popular breeds in the United States. Our Goldens have proven to be loyal, kind and eager to please.
They get high marks in intelligence and if trained properly will be the delight of the new owner. (This means fewer misunderstandings about where their bathroom should be as well as many more positive habits and skills.) These dogs want to be obedient and they want to please you!
Goldens are energetic and need daily activity. Be prepared to commit time each day for a walk or playing catch. These guys and gals love to run so please consider what that might look like with your lifestyle when planning for the perfect dog for you and your family.
Be prepared for a dog that loves your company, sits quietly at your feet and is always happy to see you. If true companionship is what you long for in your dog, you have come to the right place. The Golden Retriever is for you.
