Golden Retrievers are known for their faithfulness and child friendliness. They have a calm and relaxed personality, but love exercising and playing. Two of their passions are swimming and going for long walks.
You won't be disappointed owning a Golden Retriever and, quite simply, it's hard to say a negative word about this beautiful looking breed or its temperament.
Golden Retrievers simply love everybody, are devoted to their owners, and are great with children due to their gentle nature. On top of this, they're also very easy to train, as they love to please. Golden Retrievers are the perfect dogs for active owners.
The only downside of this breed is shedding - you'll find white balls of fluff lying around everywhere! It's important that you brush Golden Retrievers regularly but, besides that, they don't need much grooming.
They are prone to a few health issues, and for this reason we recommend careful breeder selection.
