The Golden Retriever was born to make its owner happy, and that is by no means an exaggeration. A delightful dog who can be a role model for everyone, he loves children and is a particularly quick learner.
He makes friends quickly with strangers, aggression is not typical for him, on the contrary, he does everything to make those around happy. So it's no surprise that the Golden Retriever has been on the American Kennel Club's top list for years and holds the top spot.
Because of his particularly favorable nature, he is particularly well suited as a guide dog, for his help he only expects love in return.
Golden Retrievers are calm but still very playful, so before taking the little dog home it's worth getting some toys. It fetches everything you throw away – in the water and on land too.
Golden Retrievers are not watchdogs, but they will alert you to danger and bark if they notice anything unusual. Their endearing nature brings joy to the family and they are devoted companions to the end of their lives.
