According to the American Kennel Society, golden retrievers are the third-most popular breed among American dog owners. It’s not hard to see why – golden retrievers are playful, affectionate and intelligent, not to mention adorable! Keep reading to find out why everyone loves golden retrievers.
The name says it all
According to longtime golden retriever fancier and best-selling author Nona Kilgore Bauer, the golden retriever is “aptly named.” While the name originally referred to the dogs’ golden coats, Kilgore Bauer says that it also fits golden retrievers’ “sunny disposition” and “14-karat value” to owners.
They’re eager to please
Your golden retriever just wants to make you happy. Goldens are bred to be part of a pack. Just make sure not to leave your golden retriever puppy alone for too long, or he or she may experience separation anxiety.
They play well with others
If your home includes small children, cats or other dogs, your golden retriever puppy will get along with everyone.
From creamy, spun honey to burnished gold, golden retrievers are known for the beauty of their coats and the sweetness of their faces.
