Much like their cousin, goldens enjoy water and even have the webbed feet to help them swim around. Don't worry if the water feels cold to you, these dogs were started in Scotland and love swimming even in the cold water!
Golden retrievers are eager to please and easy to train. They are so eager that they are the most popular dog breed used for service animals.
Make sure to give you golden weekly brushings to help with shedding and to prevent knots in that beautiful fur. This can be a great bonding experience for kids to do with their new friend!
