There are many good reasons why the Golden has remained one of the most popular breeds in the country for so long! They are very intelligent, which makes them easy to train and perfect for first time owners. They are also extremely gentle, especially around small children or elderly people. This is another trait that causes them to be the most popular pick for service animals. Goldens are never aggressive and tend to get along very well with children of all ages, other pets and, of course, every person they come across!
Despite the Golden Retriever’s laid back demeanor, they need regular exercise. This makes a Golden Retriever for sale a perfect workout partner, hiking buddy or anything else you can come up with! However, the Golden can fit right in with a family or owner that is not necessarily active as they do fine with several walks a day, active playtime or a romp out in the yard. Because they tend to be so laid back in the house, exercise is also necessary for them to keep a trim and muscular body shape, especially as they get older.
The Golden’s signature long, wavy locks can vary in color from a very light cream to a bright golden and even a reddish-brown. However, this breed is on the heavy shedding side, especially during Spring and Fall. We suggest a good quality deshedding brush, with weekly sessions to cut down on the amount of hair.
