The Golden retriever is an active and intelligent breed. The dogs also are patient and child-friendly, which make them perfect family pets. Because the dogs are easy to train, they are good dogs for first-time owners.
These high-energy dogs love long walks, hiking, as well as activities like agility and fly ball. They routinely are one of the most popular dogs in the United States.
The dogs also are known as a dependent dog breed because they thrive with constant human interaction. If you get one, be prepared to spend lots of time with them. They will faithfully and tirelessly follow you from room-to-room; not even drawing the line at the bathroom door.
When deciding whether to adopt a dog, consider getting one that matches your personality, living environment, and needs.
