Said to be the fourth smartest dog breed in the world, having a Golden Retriever is a blessing in disguised! They are a perfect family dog but also popular as guide or service dogs as well. With beautiful fur and pretty eyes, this breed is extremely obedient and loyal.

Some things just fill your heart without trying

Originating in Britain in the 1800s, their love for fetch is immeasurable. They are very athletic and their strong built helps them in carry objects over land and water. Lucky for them, their water-repellent coat is dense which makes Golden Retrievers ideal for water sports and swimming!

Keep In Mind: Golden Retrievers are social dogs. If they do not get the necessary human interaction and exercise, then you might suffer behaviour problems!

So, are you interested in knowing just about everything about this lovely breed? We’re here for that!

Games to play

They were bred to utilize their basic instinct to the fullest. Hence, games such as, fetch, water retrieval and where's your toy are best for them!


They are full-fledged large size dogs with a strong built. The male dog weighs between 30-34 kilos, while a female lab weighs between 27-32 kgs.


An average life span is supposed to be of 10-13 years but sometimes they live up to 15 years!

Behavioral Traits

Golden Retrievers are highly intelligent dogs, who are loyal and friendly to their owners. They are also extra playful and friendly with children!


Golden Retrievers are found in shades of cream or gold and at times Red Mahogany too. They have a medium long coat with variants of curly or straight hair. Golden Retrievers need daily regular brushing to maintain that long lustrous coat.

Golden Retrievers are open for training, which is why, movies and television shows prefer them! So when are you getting yourself a fetch partner? Stay tuned for more Pet care- related updates!
