Pros and cons of Golden Retreivers

golden-retriever-2The Golden Retriever is a big, beautiful dog with many appealing qualities. They were bred to be a hunting dog but make great family pets as well. It is a loving, intelligent, obedient breed with a trusting and gentle nature. Generally, Golden’s love people so don’t expect one to make a good guard dog. Their sweet personalities make Gold Retrievers popular pets. They’re not for everyone. For one thing, the shed a lot! If you’re a neat freak, don’t get a golden. The breed is also large and exuberant. One wag of that big tail can easily clear a coffee table.  They also have a tendency to get heavy if they don’t get enough exercise. Make sure you take them outside and toss some of their favorite dog toys around to keep them in shape.  Golden Retrievers  require a lot of room and a fairly clutter free environment.
