Dog Breed Spotlight: Golden Retriever

The Golden Retriever is one of the most popular breeds in the USA and around the world. These dogs are intelligent, eager to please, and hard workers – a combination that makes them perfect guide dogs, assistance dogs, and search and rescue dogs.

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.
