Golden Retrievers are simply one of a kind. A lot of people prefer adopting Golden Retrievers to any other dog breed because they are very adorable, highly versatile and extremely dependable.
They can make great pets in the home, excellent companions in hunting, reliable security patrollers, great obedience contenders and show dogs and so much more. Whatever purpose you have for adopting a Golden Retriever, you can expect to have a great companion that can live up to your expectations.
A Golden Retriever’s positive traits and characteristics seem to go on and on. They are generally calm, affectionate and well mannered. They are also very easy to train and have great aptitude as well.
Golden Retrievers make excellent companions because they are very loyal to their owners, lovable and fond of children. Furthermore, they can be your ideal watchdogs, always on the lookout and will bark loud when a stranger is present.Golden Retrievers, like any dog, will normally shed their hair all throughout the year and particularly during the spring season, regardless of how often you brush them for any given day. They are also known as water dogs because they like to be in the water and will get the chance to get wet whenever they could.
They also love soaking in the mud and get all dirtied up. So if you have a pool, pond or mud in your home or near your area, do not be surprised to find your Golden Retriever frolicking in it.
Golden Retrievers are also generally group-oriented. They crave attention and love to be around people and interact with them. They usually become lonely, depressed and do not do well if you leave them alone by themselves for too long a period of time. Goldens will need your attention and wish to be with you as much as possible.
So if you are the jetsetter type or one who is rarely at home, you should think twice about getting a Golden Retriever as your pet. On the other hand, you will more likely have no problem with a Golden if you are the home person, as he can be an excellent additional member of your family.
It is also a good idea to get a Golden Retriever puppy and give them basic training skills yourself. This way, you can expect your puppy to grow up to be an obedient and well-mannered dog as he gets older. The fruits of successful dog training can give you long lasting satisfaction although it does not come that simple and easy.
But if you don’t have enough time to train a puppy, you may instead get an adult Golden Retriever that has already been trained particularly on housebreaking.
Golden Retrievers are truly unique dogs. They can be the best canine companion you will ever find. Their high versatility allows the both of you to do many things together such as outdoor activities like hunting, hiking, walking, jogging or camping. Perhaps the best part of it all is that they love being with you.
So if you always get your Golden to be involved in many of your activities, you can expect to have a fun and beautiful relationship with him through the years.
