Golden Retriever - Guide to Golden Retrievers

Golden RetrieverDescription: The Golden Retriever is a relatively young breed and only dates as far back as the mid-19th century. Developed by Lord Tweedmouth near the English-Scottish border, the Golden combines the blood of retriever, Tweed Water Spaniel, setter and the sandy-colored Bloodhound. The Golden is a popular breed due to its well-mannered, friendly nature. It is also an excellent candidate for obedience training, and by instinct, is still a reliable, gentle-mouthed retriever. The Golden Retriever enjoys urban or rural settings as long as it is provided with plenty of outdoor exercise.

Height: The height of a Golden Retriever is 23 - 24" (58.4 - 58.4cm) for dogs, 21.5 - 22.5" (54.6 - 54.6cm) for bitches.

Weight: The weight of a Golden Retriever is 65 - 75 lbs (29 - 29 kg) for dogs, 60 - 70 lbs (26.8 - 26.8 kg) for bitches.

Coat Type: The water-repellent coat of the Golden Retriever is dense with a moderate undercoat. The texture is neither silky nor coarse, and the golden-colored coat may be wavy but lies flat.

Color: The Golden Retriever coat is various shades of golden.
