The Golden Retriever is a breed of dog, historically developed as a gundog to retrieve shot waterfowl and upland game and lame hens during hunting. As such they were bred to have a soft mouth to retrieve game undamaged and an instinctive love of water. Their intelligence and versatility sees them employed in a variety of roles including illegal drug detection, search and rescue, as hunting dogs and as guide dogs. Their friendly, eager-to-please and patient demeanors have also made them popular family dogs.
The Golden Retriever came from Britain, originating from a mixture of the flat-coated retriever and the tweed water spaniels. Golden Retrievers are fairly active dogs, they require a moderate level of exercise per day, this breed is likely to get obese if fed to much or not having enough exercise. They need to be groomed at least once a week, and even daily when they are shedding (this season is normally in the spring as the dog loses its thick winter coat). Ear cleaning is also advisable to stave off ear infection.
