The Golden(s) Rule

Golden Retriever

The Golden Retriever was developed in Scotland and England in the late 19th century for the purpose of retrieving wildfowl on land and water. Its physical characteristics and its willing, adaptable, trainable nature have also fitted it for usefulness in many other endeavors such as service dogs, guide dogs for the blind, therapy dogs and search and rescue.

The Golden Retriever is a stately dog yet comfortable everywhere …

Fun loving and cheerful … ready for any adventure

Goldens are eminently trainable …

… and friendly to a fault …

But don’t forget that they are foodies …

They start small but gain mass quickly …
