Golden Retrievers are wonderful companions and hunters' best friends. They are good-natured, affectionate and have an excellent ability to recognize shot prey.
Golden retrievers are smart hunters, ideal family members, reliable friends who respond to affection and kindness. A properly raised Golden Retriever will happily obey the demands of any owner, but will not act as if he has accomplished the greatest feats in the world. The only reward that representatives of this breed expect for their usefulness is simple attention from a person.
The Golden Retriever is a moderately pumped-up handsome guy with a soulful appearance and a magnificent iridescent coat. They became known more due to the efforts of marketers than due to their own attractiveness. The breed was actively advertised, especially in American films.
In terms of the number of enthusiastic reviews from owners, the Golden Retriever is the leader among all dog breeds. In fact, only a convinced dog hater can point out the shortcomings of this good-natured, intelligent dog. For the average animal lover, the Golden is literally irresistible with its softness and phenomenal memory for faces. If one of your friends treats your pet with a tasty treat or entertains him with a simple game, you can be sure that the retriever will not forget to add a fat “plus” to this friend’s karma.

Calm and balanced in everyday life, representatives of this breed will try to protect their mark even in the most delicate situations. They are completely non-conflict and are ready to get along with four-legged creatures that do not show open aggression. Even in the most tense situations, goldens prefer peaceful solutions. For a Golden Retriever to growl and grab an enemy with a death grip is beyond fantasy.

This breed is often recommended to be kept in homes with children, as the animals are as correct and patient as possible with the younger generation. Of course, keeping a dog with a child is not the wisest decision, but naughty three-year-olds can be left to the dog. Golden Retrievers are primarily suitable for people. After all, it is with dogs that they go for walks, share their joys and sorrows with them. For this reason, Golden Retrievers are often referred to active canine therapy. Furry “antidepressants” are happy to make contact with patients suffering from prolonged depression, charging them with cheerful emotions and gradually restoring the joy of existence.

If you have a golden retriever in your home, accept that he is a guardian of his territory and a dog with material value.
