Your typically lovable, well-mannered intelligent retriever could charm the birds out the trees. He is easy to train, soft mouthed and patient making him great around children. Energetic and loving, he lives to please, and is friendly with everyone, including other dogs. His need for mental and physical stimulation is high and requires a lot of activity to avoid destructive behaviour at home. This can be developed by harnessing some of his instinctive traits such as hunting and retrieving, agility, obedience and performance. If he is true to his breed, he will be a keen swimmer. We have some great coats and toys perfect for your Golden Retriever.
