Could this be the perfect family pet? Well considering that they're one of the lowest ranking barker's and they don't have bad breath, that's a pretty good start. And what's this about an egg? They have what's called a soft mouth. Take the egg. Good boy. I've actually seen these dogs pick up two or three raw eggs in their mouth at a time without breaking. Often referred to simply as the golden, the Golden Retriever is one of the most beloved dogs, and it's always ranked high among the most popular breeds. Golden Retrievers are right at the top as far as a pet goes. Very versatile. They are one of the top pets that are welcomed into homes today and there happens to be a guy you can thank for this happy dutiful pooch, and he's got a funny name, Lord Tweedmouth, or if you prefer his given name, sir Dudley Majora Banks. An avid hunter, Lord Tweedmouth lived near the banks of the Loch Ness and it was there where he developed a dog in the 1860s with a love for the water and a desire to retrieve. Well the Tweedster knocked this one out of the park. The American Kennel Club registered the golden in 1925 and the breed flourished through the 30s and 40s and has never lost its popularity. And if obedience is your thing look no further, they're rocking a good behavior hardware. Unique about the golden retriever is they were the first ever a AKC obedience trial champion. That's like Miss Manners for dogs, an organization recognizing an excellent working relationship with their owners. They are so willing to work for the people they're bonded with. They're just so ready to please their families. You don't have to bother saying fetch to these guys. Bred as hunters to retrieve fowl from water and land, they'll run tirelessly all day. Goldens are a big dog measuring around 22 inches in height and an average weight of 65 pounds. They sport a dense water repellent coat with a good undercoat and rich shades of golden coloring. A puppies coat is almost always lighter than what it will be when it's an adult. Looking at a puppies ears are a good indication of what color it will be when it grows up. These dogs love to chew. Yep it's that soft mouth again. Bred to carry waterfowl during the hunt, but sometimes it goes a little too far. Some bad reviews are taking a bite out of their reputation. Aggression is now a feature in some lines, not the whole breed, but you got to watch out for it. And Goldens actually are number 3 on the national bite parade, and what is an epidemic of bites these days. Who is number one and number two? The German Shepherds at one, the Chow Chow at two. And like it's retriever alum the Labrador, it has webbed feet to aid in all that paddling it loves to do. But with all that fetching and running the golden retriever is prone to hip dysplasia, a joint disorder common to many large breeds. It's caused by a loss of cartilage due to an abnormal formation in the hip. It can be quite painful and requires proper medical attention. Consult with your vet if your golden show signs of discomfort. For environment Goldens are versatile, but it's a bigger dog that requires activity. I think the nice thing about a Golden Retriever is they're gonna adapt to anywhere. They'd be fine in an apartment as long as they're worked. You could put them on a farm they'd have a blast. Hip dysplasia is common and if not properly exercised these guys can pack on the pounds. There's also been a problem with cancer in the breed. Lymphosarcoma is a very common cancer in golden retrievers, so you want to make sure that you get a good line. Grooming wise you'll have to pay attention to their coat. Golden should be groomed regularly. They need to be brushed. They need to get all the knots taken out with a slipper brush. Golden retrievers are extremely easy to train. They are more biddable than some other breeds, which means they're more eager to please. There's probably not a better pet for the entire family. But remember it can be mouthy and a biter so train them early to not bite. This is not a guard dog unless the intruder hates getting licked. Every golden has its own unique personality and traits but in general Golden's are born to run and are generally quite healthy. Keep that brush handy and don't sweat the training and you've got a great family dog. They just have a zest for life no matter what they do. They're just amazing dogs.
