Golden Retriever Characteristics
It should come as no surprise that Golden Retrievers are one of the most popular dogs in the United States. Golden Retrievers are intelligent, friendly, affectionate, and loyal. They also make great hunters, workers, and guides for the blind. While active and energetic, they are also easy to train and make for a gentle and loving family companion.
Golden Retrievers are a popular family dog full of energy and ceaseless playfulness. Their color can vary from light golden to cream to dark golden. Bred to work with people, they enjoy pleasing their owner and helping with jobs around the house.
Golden Retrievers are active and require at least one hour of daily exercise. Without it, they may exhibit behavioral problems. True to their name, Golden Retrievers enjoy retrieving anything you want to throw. A favorite hunting companion, law enforcement personnel often use them to sniff and track things.
Golden Retrievers are heavy shedders, requiring frequent brushing to get the loose hair out of their coats. These coats typically come in their iconic golden shade, but can be black, red, or white as well. Goldens love to carry something in their mouths like other retrievers, whether it is a ball, toy, or bone.
Golden Retriever puppies require special care early on because they grow quickly during their fourth to seventh months. This makes them prone to bone disorders, but overall, they are generally healthy. They will maintain their playful puppy personality well into their third year of age.
Golden Retrievers are a large breed and grow to weigh between 55 and 75 pounds. The typical lifespan for a Golden Retriever is 10 to 12 years. They are loyal, loving companions.
