The Golden Retriever is a sturdy, muscular dog of medium size, famous for the dense, lustrous coat of gold that gives the breed its name. The broad head, with its friendly and intelligent eyes, short ears, and straight muzzle, is a breed hallmark. In motion, Goldens move with a smooth, powerful gait, and the feathery tail is carried, as breed fanciers say, with a “merry action.”
Goldens are outgoing, trustworthy, and eager-to-please family dogs, and relatively easy to train. They take a joyous and playful approach to life and maintain this puppyish behavior into adulthood. These energetic, powerful gundogs enjoy outdoor play. For a breed built to retrieve waterfowl for hours on end, swimming and fetching are natural pastimes.
Goldens are known for their eager to please, and faithful attitudes. They are always happy to be right by your side...except for when their sniffers get distracted by almost ANYTHING! Our Goldens are no exception. Extremely loyal, always ready for a good petting, showing all the wonderful characteristics of this special breed. Whether it is Timber enjoying a good game of tug-of-war, Mia never running out of energy playing fetch, or relaxing with Bella, Lilly and Simba on the porch swing, our Goldens showcase all the athleticism and gentleness they are known for.
