Golden Retrievers are amazing family dogs, but you knew that already didn't you?
I've owned and trained, three Golden Retrievers in my life...so far. They are loyal, lovable, patient, and extremely kind. It is no wonder that Goldens make for amazing therapy pets.
My Goldens have been steadfast and emotionally supportive during some difficult times in my life. They make amazing cuddle buddies!
I've never felt afraid of my Goldens hurting children or becoming aggressive, yet, I have seen them become unsure of certain strangers. In fact, I think they are able to pick up on someone questionable if needed.
Goldens are easy to train but are also very energetic during the first half of their lives. They need lots of exercise and attention before they are ready to settle in for their cuddles.
Goldens tend to shed a LOT! Unfortunately, some have genetic dander disorders. So, if you have severe allergies, try to find out if your potential pup's parents have been tested and get ready to do a lot of grooming and upkeep.
