Golden Retriever dog Personality 


Golden retriever dogs are gentle and affectionate. Compatible with people and other dogs. The word retriever means "retrieve" and was a hunting dog that carried prey to its master. It is easy to train and has a high learning ability, so it can be said that it is a breed that plays an active role as a guide dog and disaster relief dog. They love to play, so be careful not to get too excited or accidentally swallow balls or toys.


The most important thing in keeping Golden Retriever is to exercise well. It takes a lot of physical strength, and a walk of about 30 minutes to 1 hour in the morning and evening is indispensable. However, if you do not play enough or exercise sufficiently, you may be able to bark, such as barking.

Take them to a dog walk, and introduce "collecting games" such as balls and disks to relieve stress as much as possible.

Golden retrievers are native to England, but little is known about their history. It is said that the yellow puppy born in 1865 was a Wavy Coated Retriever owned by Lord Tweedmouth, Earl of England. Hunting was popular in England at the time, and the Earl encouraged crossbreeding with setters and water spaniels to make them more agile on land and in water and is said to have laid the foundation for today's Golden Retriever. It was registered with the Kennel Club of England in 1903 as a Flat-Coated Golden, but since there was another breed, the Flat-Coated Retriever, it was called either the Golden Retriever or the Yellow Retriever. Renamed Golden Retriever in 1920.

Characteristics of the Golden Retriever

The color of the coat is a nice shiny shade of gold or cream, and since it was originally a water-active hunting dog, the coat repels water well. The thorax, abdomen and underside of the tail are particularly bushy, and the limbs are covered with feathers.

Due to their similar appearance, British pedigree, and intelligence, the long-haired Labrador is often confused with a retriever, despite being of different breeds.


Because Golden Retrievers have a double coat, they shed a lot during the shedding season. To keep the thick coat looking good, it is important to brush several times a week and every day during the shedding season. Also, I would like to shampoo once or twice a month. Leaving it wet may cause skin diseases and stains, so please dry it gently with a hair dryer after shampooing.
The Golden Retriever is a relatively cold-resistant dog breed, but it is weak in the heat of summer, so be careful of room temperature control even if you keep it indoors.


Although there are individual differences, the average lifespan is 10 to 12 years. Dogs over the age of seven are taken into consideration as senior dogs.

In the case of malignant tumors (cancer), the effects of chemotherapy (drug therapy for cancer) are being actively studied, and prognosis can be expected if early detection is possible.

A disease in which the secretion of thyroid hormone is reduced. The skin also thickens, giving it a “sad face”. Infertility, anestrus, muscle weakness, neuropathy, and circulatory disturbances are also seen.

Tricuspid regurgitation

In this breed, the tricuspid valve that separates the right ventricle from the right atrium is often congenitally malformed and susceptible. Symptoms include fatigue, cough, and ascites.

Aortic valve stenosis

A disease in which the aortic valve, which pumps blood from the left ventricle to the rest of the body, fails to open properly. Mild cases do not cause significant clinical symptoms, but severe cases can lead to weakness, collapse, and sudden death.

laryngeal paralysis

Wheezing, which is exacerbated by excitement and exercise, is the main clinical sign, but dyspnea may cause cyanosis and collapse in severe cases.
