Temperament
A very popular breed, the Golden Retriever is a dog that is stable, loving, eager to please, and gentle. These dogs make wonderful companions and family pets, and they love to give and receive attention. The Golden Retriever is a loyal and devoted dog, with mild manners, a responsive nature, and a playful streak. These dogs love the company of humans, and are not suited to those that cannot commit much time to their pet. They are quite energetic, and in particular they love to swim. These dogs have a real passion for life and for everything they do, and are extremely sociable dogs that will get along with almost everyone.

The Golden is NOT a guard dog but a "people dog". He thrives on human companionship and must be allowed to interact with people. This is a dog who is completely devoted to his family, always happy and forever trusting and forgiving. Being a Sporting breed, he is active and energetic and, therefore, requires a fair amount of exercise including daily walks, running, and free play time.

The Golden Retriever originates from Great Britain, and was bred as a water retriever and a hunter. The obedience and intelligence of the breed has now made them popular as guide dogs for the blind. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1925.
