Reliable, affectionate and eager to please, the Golden Retriever is one of the most popular and most iconic breeds in the world. These loyal, easy to train pups are incredibly friendly, adaptable and well-suited to a range of home and family environments.
Initially bred as “gun dogs” for the purpose of finding and retrieving game, the breed is well adapted to its role of retriever. In fact, Golden Retrievers are known to sometimes retrieve items throughout the house without command, like slippers or even the morning paper.
Characteristically gentle, intelligent, and eager to please, the capable breed is both easy to train and incredibly devoted to their owners. The Golden Retriever’s highly sociable temperament and affectionate personality make them a great decision for first-time dog owners, and dog owners with children.

The answer is Yes and No. There is no statewide law requiring owners to vaccinate their dog so long as said dog originated in IN the state of Minnesota. However, According to Minnesota Administrative Rule 1721.0500,
“A dog, cat, or ferret three months of age or older imported into the state must be currently vaccinated for rabies unless they… are exempted by the board based on the written recommendations of a licensed veterinarian who has examined the animal and who has determined that vaccination is contraindicated due to a medical condition.”
Though it is not strictly mandated in Minnesota, preventing rabies in dogs with vaccination is highly effective. We strongly urge that all dogs three months or older be vaccinated according to their veterinarian’s recommendations.
No. There are no state-wide leash laws in Minnesota. However, any unlicensed dog that is found running at large may be impounded. According to Minnesota Statute 347.52, “An owner of a dangerous dog shall keep the dog, while on the owner's property, in a proper enclosure. If the dog is outside the proper enclosure, the dog must be muzzled and restrained by a substantial chain or leash and under the physical restraint of a responsible person.”
Additionally, “Any statutory or home rule charter city, or any county, may regulate potentially dangerous and dangerous dogs.” In other words, your dog is permitted off leash in the State of Minnesota, so long as it is not considered dangerous or allowed to run at large.
