Introduction-What is a Golden Retriever?

Not to be confused with the Labrador Retriever, Golden Retriever puppies are some of the most beloved dogs in the world. They are playful, full of energy, and incredibly affectionate. If you’re considering adding a puppy to your family. Let’s take a look at why this breed is such an amazing match for many people and families.

They are one of the chosen breeds as a guide dog and are also favored by Hunters

Why Are Golden Retrievers So Popular?

Golden Retrievers have been popular pets for decades, in part because they are so loving and loyal to their owners. This breed of dog loves nothing more than spending time with its owners, whether it’s going on long walks or simply lounging around on the couch watching movies together. They form strong bonds with their families and are known for being fiercely protective of them as well.

Golden Retriever Size and Height

Golden Retrievers weigh from 55-75lbs and their height range is 20-24 inches.


Golden Retrievers have a long silky golden coat with a dense water-resistant undercoat, drop ears and a long tail. A powerful shaped head with dark brown eyes and round cat-like feet.

What Do They Need?

Golden retrievers have a moderate activity level which makes them perfect for any sort of lifestyle. They need regular walks or playtime to stay healthy but aren’t overly active dogs that require hours of exercise each day. Their moderate activity level also makes them suitable as apartment dogs if you don’t have access to a backyard or other space for exercising your pup.

Training Your Golden Retriever

According to Pitpat,  they are one of the top 10 most intelligent dog breeds worldwide along with Labrador Retrievers and German Shepherds.

Their intelligence also makes them easy to train. With plenty of positive reinforcement and consistency in their training habits, golden retrievers can quickly learn basic commands such as “sit” and “stay” as well as tricks like rolling over or playing dead. This makes them great companions for active individuals or families who want to take their pup along for outdoor adventures or trips to the park.

How often does a Golden Retriever need to be groomed?

Golden Retriever’s coat should be well brushed every one or two weeks to avoid painful matting and to avoid too much shedding.

Don’t bathe them too often as this could damage their beautifully soft undercoat.


For those looking for an intelligent yet affectionate pet that fits into any lifestyle, look no further than the adorable golden retriever puppy!
