Dog Breed Spotlight: Golden Retriever
Golden Retrievers stem from Scotland, where the breed was created as a hunting companion well suited for the climate and terrain. The breed as we know it today took shape in the late 1800s. They’re generally good at whatever they do, and take tasks seriously.
These dogs are active and energetic, and require daily exercise. Golden Retrievers have a joyful approach to life, and they love to be part of an active family that takes them hiking, jogging, and lets them play every day.
An average Golden Retriever weighs between 55 and 75 lbs, and needs a Large PlexiDor dog door.
