Getting A Golden Retriever Puppy

by Michelle Bery

If you?re like most people, there will come a time when it must be decided whether or not your home will have a pet. For many, this is an easy decision; a childhood with an animal may naturally precipitate adulthood with one as well. And if you are dog lover, then chances are there is a particular breed that holds a special place in your heart. But if you are just venturing into the world of dog ownership you may be wondering which breed is right for you and your family. One or two visits to a pet store may put you face to face with the golden retriever puppy; a face that is hard to ignore!

The golden retriever puppy is by far one of the most popular dogs on the market today. One look at its sweet little face and it?s not hard to see why. There is many a golden retriever owner that was suckered in by the ?puppy appeal? of their pet. But puppies do grow; it?s important to know all that you can about the breed of dog before making any decisions.

Originally bred as hunting dogs, golden retrievers have a natural intelligence that lends it to all varieties of work including search and rescue and law enforcement. Its intellect combined with its genial nature has also made golden retrievers popular in the service industry ? assisting people with a variety of handicaps.

Like their adult counterparts, the golden retriever puppy is playful, friendly and sweet. They are also extremely intelligent and easily trained. For all of these reasons, the golden retriever puppy makes a wonderful family dog.

Keep in mind, however, that the golden retriever puppy will grow to be a rather large dog. You should not commit to ownership of such an animal if you do not have considerable space ? inside and out. Also, because the golden retriever is such a social dog, it is important that it be with a family that has the time and attention for this special dog.

Further, the golden retriever puppy ? in addition to making the necessary and customary visits to the veterinarian ? will also need to be groomed quite frequently. This particular breed sheds quite a bit; its fur needs constant maintenance. This is something to keep in mind as you consider the time you will have to devote to a golden retriever puppy.
