Golden Retrievers are supposed to be calm, stable, well mannered dogs. Unfortunately these days we are seeing more and more Golden's with aggression issues, ranging from reactivity to other dogs and people to resource guarding. Unscrupulous breeders that don't health or temperament test their dogs are partly to blame, but so too are many Golden owners. Similar to the Labrador, too many owners see the Golden Retriever as an 'easy option' - a dog that doesn't need socialisation or training, but… Read Full Review

Good: Its coat is so huggable unlike in labradors that has no coat. this is a labrador with hair. you can say This dog is a very friendly nature dog. Best companion. Not much a watch dog, A lazy potato you can say. hardly barks. The best feature is hair. love the coat Can be left alone sometimes. Bad: Well the hair sheds. heavily, but you wont mind if you love your dog Since a big dog. its mouth slobs. wet always. Eats a lot of food. like a labrador. God i love this breed despite the bads coz… Read Full Review

I have done extensive reaserch on dogs, and do not know a better purebreed than this. I am getting a Goldendoodle soon, because I just love every Golden I've met. I have heard that they can be mouthy, but that's just because they are gun dogs, so they retrive- hence their name. Lovely, intelligent, beautifull pets… Read Full Review

I think the golden retrievers are the most active dogs. They are beautiful, playful, energetic, and so on... Even if you make them feel that you are angry they will still try to pacify you with their clownish performance. I suggest that a person should keep a golden retriever in his life to understand what unconditional love is all about. Kudos to all the Golden retrievers!… Read Full Review

In my opinion this is the best breed out there if you are looking for a loving family dog. They are so gentle with children, and they aim to please you in everything they do. Golden Retrievers are great to take out for walks, and when you come back they like to go to sleep! This breed is simply fantastic. There is no better breed out there!… Read Full Review

Wonderful dogs. Very tolerate with children. They love everyone, which makes them poor watchdogs. They are also very energetic their first 3-4 years and require a lot of exercise to keep them out of mischief. Mine is 11 yrs old and her health is declining, but I wouldn't hesitate to get another… Read Full Review

I have a 3 year old Golden Retriever and she has just been the best dog ever. We got her when we had a 9 month old baby and she has just been wonderful with the kids. I've had another baby since then and I had no problem just laying the baby on the floor when the dog was in the house because the she is just so gentle with kids. She just had puppies and they are just as awesome as our sweet little Honey… Read Full Review

I just got a Golden Retriever Pup before Christmas 2005.
He is now 3 months old and a DREAM!!! He needs lots of attention and loves to be loved.
I considered 2 other breeds and with many hours of research decided that a Golden is the best dog for homes with children.
He is a wonderful puppy - already housetrained - and I know will be a wonderful addition to our family. I am already thinking of another Golden next year… Read Full Review

Well I have 5 Goldens all pure breed. I started with a girl then a boy and you can imagine how I got 3 more. They are so wonderful to have. They do take a while to calm down and stop jumping on people because they are so loving. Other than that they are the best dogs I had. People think "Wow you have 5 dogs", but the main thing I point out is, they are Golden Retrievers and once they reach around 1-2 years in age its no hassle at all because they are so smart.
Bad hips are a common problem in… Read Full Review

Golden Retriever - I have had Beauty (Jessica the Just) for 7 weeks now and she is absolutely fantastic. I have grown up with dogs and have always had a dog, but I have to say Golden Retrievers are the best!!
Beauty is a champagne colour, she has the longest lashes I have ever seen, she loves the kids. But most of all she is very loyal, someone to cuddle and take all the worries away, she certainly keeps your mind busy.. Oh and she loves water whether it is clean or muddy, baths well she… Read Full Review

I have had Golden Retrievers since I was age 12 and now have just gotten my fifth golden. Our entire family has two Golden Retrievers so I think I know the breed very well.
They are wonderful, intelligent, and very friendly dogs who can be the best companions you could ever wish for. Goldens are playful but can also be content to just lay at your feet or next to you and although they really enjoy being with people, they are also content just being by themselves. Goldens do want to please and… Read Full Review
