History of Golden Retrievers
Golden Retrievers were bred by crossing a Tweed Water Spaniel with a wavy coated retriever. Retrievers were used to fetch things for their masters. If a hunter shot down a game bird, the dog might be used to fetch ("retrieve") the bird and bring it to his master. Today the Golden Retriever still enjoys fetching things like balls and things we drop. This can be very useful!
Appearance: Attractive gold or cream colour. Coat may be flat or wavy and needs brushing. Legs are feathered.
Height: males 56 - 61 cms, females 51- 56 cms at shoulder. They are large dogs who need exercise.
Temperament: Golden Retrievers are good natured and easy to train. They respond to kindness and gentle correction so it shouldn't be necessary to shout at them. Let's you & I be good natured too. "A soft answer turns away wrath," says Proverbs 15, 1
