By Scott Lipe

Description: The Golden Retriever is a sturdy, muscular, athletic dog developed originally for use in hunting. The dog must be between 22 and 24 inches at the withers and weighs 65-75 pounds.

The height of the dog must be 20-22 inches and weighs 55-65 pounds. The coat of the Golden Retriever may be either wavy or straight, medium length. There is an undercoat, and as the coat is water resistant. The coat color varies in different shades of beige, very light to dark.

History: Lord TWEEDMOUTH is primarily responsible for the development of the breed golden retriever. I wanted the dogs, who are able to hunt in the wild in the countryside in Scotland.

As the weather in Scotland is often wrong, wanted a dog that is not hindered by the extreme conditions. While Lord Tweedmouth wanted a dog that is more durable and stronger than those available, I wanted to be sure that the new generation is easy to train and have a good distribution. To begin, two purebred dogs, Yellow Retriever and the extinct Tweed Water Spaniel. Crossing the progeny with the Bloodhound, Irish Setter, Tweed Water Spaniel and returned to lead the Golden Retriever.

Temperament: Gold is not only famous for his intelligence and training, but also for his extreme good nature. The Golden Retriever is not a dog attached to a person, tend to be kind and friendly to almost everyone.

These dogs are very good with children, but it is sometimes said that the Golden Retriever should be protected from his young friends of man. The ease of training and providing wonderful dog, is an excellent guide or assistance dogs for people with disabilities.

Preparation: medium to long hair, gold is easy to maintain. Daily brushing will help control shedding, which occurs throughout the year. Get rid of the heaviest in the spring. The holder can also be used dry shampoo is a dog, if desired. It is best not to bathe the dog unless absolutely necessary.

Living conditions: The Golden Retriever can live outside, but must not be left out in winter, unless global warming alive. The dog is a happy apartment, insofar as it is made. The best way to avoid the presence of gold is to ensure that the dog is long standing or walking every day.
