Golden Retrievers are among the most popular dogs
worldwide.  They are known for their wonderful
temperament and devotion to their human family.  They
adore children and will not retaliate, despite provocation.  
Their intelligence makes them easy to train and their kind,
gentle nature allows them to mix well with other family pets.  
Not only does the Golden Retriever make a superb
companion, its combination of intelligence and gentleness
make it an excellent choice as a guide dog for the blind,
hearing dog for the deaf and as a therapy dog.  Golden
Retrievers are also used as "sniffer dogs", detecting drugs,
arms and explosives.

A Golden Retriever is a medium-sized, lively dog requiring
regular exercise and grooming.  The standards for Golden
Retrievers are as follows.  Females should be 21 1/2--22
1/2 inches at the shoulders and weigh up to 65 pounds.  A
Golden male is 23-24 inches at the shoulder having a weight
up to 75 pounds.  Goldens should be brushed every few days,
and every day while shedding in the spring, to remove loose
hair and prevent mats from forming.  Depending on personal
preference, Goldens may need minimal trimming of the ears,
neck, feet and tail.  Most Goldens adore water, so be
prepared to rinse your dog's coat after a swim in a muddy
stream or salt water.
