Just been putting another website together about golden retrever (misspelt on purpose -Keyword) dogs and am amazed at how versatile these dogs really are.
Dog training these dogs for so many uses, the most well know is the dogs used to aid the blind in navigating themselves around.
Then they are used as sniffer dogs. by police, customs, and military.
also used in the location of bodies (for example id building collapses these dogs can sniff out bodies in the mass of debris).
But these dogs make great Family pets and they have such a mild mannered temperament, and are know to tolerate children well. ha ha I say tolerate because have you ever seen children with pets they pull ears noses tails and so on, so they pet must be soft to allow this to happen.
In the Uk these dogs are used by Hunters and the dogs go retrieves the kill, hence thats how they get their name retrievers.
So needless to say if you get one of these dogs you should be prepared to exercise them every single day as they have lots of energy to expel.
It's built into them to work so the urges they will have to go hunt and retrieve will need to be replaced with exercise.
If you have time you can pop over to my sub site and have a read about these great dogs.
